Rufus Sewell Takes a Bite out of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Rufus Sewell has joined the cast of Timur Bekmambetov’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, and is set to play Adam, one of those vampires that ol Honest Abe will be hunting in the movie. Not just any vampire, Adam is also the head honcho of bloodsuckers.

“Lincoln” is the big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel of the same name, and posits the future Civil War President as a secret fearsome vampire killer.

Sewell, last seen in “The Tourist”, joins Benjamin Walker, playing Lincoln, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his lady love, and Dominic Cooper as Abe’s mentor.

Abe saves the world June 22, 2012.
