Casting Update: Vampire Diaries: Renfield

Casting Update: Vampire Diaries: RenfieldPhil Nichols of Poison Apple Films wrote in to us today with a quick update on the cast of Vampire Diaries: Renfield, which includes one very interesting candidate for a lead role.

“We have signed J. Eddie Peck from Curse II the Bite and Kyle XY to play the hero Detective Paul Cranston,” says Nichols. “And Austin Colt (son of J. Eddie Peck) will make his debut as the villainous Quincy Harker, the son of Dracula. Phil Nichols is Renfield, Roxann Hixon is Mina Harker, Glen Lambert is Willard Cain, Vance Johnson is Dr. Seward. Facades FX is handling the creature FX, and Jaroslav Vodehnal is directing.”

Well, all of that sounds okay, but who is that interesting candidate I spoke of? Phil continues …

“We are in early stages of getting Kane Hodder on-board as Count Dracula.”

Kane as Dracula? Well, he pulled off Ed Gein … Guess we’ll have to see. Principal photography starts May 25, 2009. Keep it here for more.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I really like Kane Hodder. Really. But that makes about as much sense to me as casting Andrew Bryniarski as Dracula. Was Derek Mears, Tyler Mane, or Ken Kirzinger busy? Why not Gunnar Hansen for that matter, or Ken Foree, Sid Haig, or Robert Englund. Must be Kane’s convincing Eastern European accent that nailed it.
