This morning the guys at AICN had an interview with Paul Giamatti up in which he announced that Ron Perlman was looking to fill the blue suede shoes of Elvis Presley in Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Nosferatu. We told you about it cause we love you, and now we have official word from Bubba Nosferatu writer Stephen Romano on the casting!
“Yes, Ron will be playing Elvis,” Romano told us. “Obviously, finding the right actor to step into the role was crucial. I think the casting choice is fucking inspired. Ron is a brilliant actor and has the right street cred, too.”
So Colonel Parker is cast (Giamatti), Perlman is donning the pompadour, but who’ll be playing the titular bloodsucker? ”They’re talking about another major genre star for the role of Bubba Nosferatu himself, but I can’t comment on that until an official announcement is made,” Romano teased us. ”Giamatti is very, very excited about this project. Don Coscarelli is, of course, very happy with the casting. Paul and Ron together in this film as Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley is going to be amazing.”
Hopefully more will be revealed soon, so don’t move those roaming eyeballs of yours! And be sure to give thanks to Stephen Romano by utilizing the link below to get his badass book, Shock Festival, though Evilshop!
