Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Cast, Crew and Characters

The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cast and characters combine to project the popular novel of the same name on the big screen. The film’s crew is notable for its genre experts, with Bazelevs Company and Tim Burton Productions clearly putting their best foot forward in ensuring the film’s success. In this context, genre experts are those names that are arguably top of the list when creating a dream team for the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter crew. Who better to write the script than the original novel’s author Seth Grahame-Smith? For dark themes and gothic aesthetics, there is no one more qualified to produce than Tim Burton. With a strong background in dark action films, there may not be anyone more qualified than Timur Bekmambetov to direct and co-produce.

If you've read this far then you are obviously intrigued by teh thought of one of the greatest US Presidents hunting vampires in his spare time. Read on to find out more about the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cast and crew who are bringing the story and characters of the famous novel to the silver (staked) screen.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Cast

Benjamin Walker was picked to headline the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cast as vampire slayer Abraham Lincoln. The striking, tall and dark haired Walker certainly looks the part, and his critically acclaimed performances on Broadway should give the Abraham Lincoln character the weight he deserves. His work as Andrew Jackson in Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson also gives him some experience in being a title character. Mary Elizabeth Winstead will play his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln. However, there’s more than just a triple barreled name to make her perfect for the part. At only 27 she already has a collection of cult hits and action films on her resume, such as Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Grindhouse: Death Proof, Final Destination 3 and Live Free or Die Hard.

When choosing a lead evil vampire villain, there are certain perquisites. Ideally the actor needs to be English with a background in Shakespeare and theatre. Enter Rufus Sewell. His long list of film credits includes Hamlet, A Knight's Tale and The Illusionist. Enough said.

The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter actors in supporting roles are also very strong. With Jimmi Simpson as Josh Speed, Dominic Cooper playing Vampire slaying expert Henry Sturges, Anthony Mackie as William Johnson, Nancy Lincoln, Abe’s mother, is played by Robin McLeavy and Marton Csokas appearing as fellow hunter Jack Armstrong the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter cast and characters is particularly strong.
