My Ideal Vampire Chronicles Cast

Because of my Robert Downing Jr. post, that made me think about who would I want for my ideal Vampire Chronicles cast. My ideal person for Lestat, aka the Brat Prince, would have to be Cam Gigandet. I think he would be perfect because he can pull off being blond and being a badass. Keep in mind that I’m basing my opinions on his performance in Twilight. For Louis, I would choose Jonathan Rhys Meyers. For him, it’s just based on looks. Well, actually, most of the people that I chose, if not all, I chose them because of their looks. And for some of them, I also chose them because I think they could that character well. Although with Angelina Jolie as Merrick, I was just thinking of someone who was beautiful and that can play a sex kitten. Anyway, I’m going to put a list of the characters and who I think should play them. I will also put a link to my photo album of the respective people. And a little side note: the characters where I have two people as that character, I could see either one play that character. The only exception would be David. And if you’re a Vampire Chronicles fan, you’ll know why. Oh, and the music for the video was supposed to Maharet from Queen Of The Damned – The Score Album.

Lestat = Cam Gigandet
Louis = Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Claudia = Rachel Covey
Armand = Jaime Campbell Bower
Marius = Daniel Craig
Maharet/Mekare = Nicole Kidman/Julianne Moore
Pandora = Monica Belluci
David = Christopher Lee (old), Sendhil Ramamurthy (young)
Daniel = Jude Law
Gabrielle = Michelle Pfeiffer/Nicole Kidman
Magnus = Peter Facinelli
Nicolas = Emile Hirsch
Jesse = Amy Adams
Mael = Alexander Skarsgård
Khayman = Khalid Abdalla
Akasha = Amy Lee/May Hariri
Enkil = Oded Fehr
Eric = Ian Somerhalder
Santino = Aidan Turner
Bianca = Ivanka Trump
Thorne = Henrik Norlén
Aaron Lightner = Joss Ackland
Merrick = Angelina Jolie
Tarquin = Jared Padalecki

Robert Downing Jr. as Lestat

As I said in my previous post, I heard about the rumors surrounding Universal making a Vampire Chronicles movie and the possibility of Robert Downing Jr. being Lestat. My feelings on the Robert Downing Jr. rumors are pretty much neutral. On one hand, he doesn’t really match Lestat’s physical description. For one thing, he’s too old and I don’t know if he can pull off being blond. Anyway, on the other hand, I have never seem any of his movies. So, I can’t really judge him on whether or not he can pull off Lestat’s personality. Anyway, all I can say is that if the Vampire Chronicles and Robert Downing Jr. rumors are true, Robert Downing Jr. had better realize that he better live up to the role that is Lestat.

Rumors of a Vampire Chronicles Movie

A few days after my 21st birthday, I read a myspace blog saying that Universal Pictures might be producing a Vampire Chronicles movie. In regards to this news, there are several things that I want to to talk about. Number one: the rumors. I hope the rumors are true about a Vampire Chronicles movie being made. It’s about time. It’s been about seven years since Queen of the Damned and 15 years since Interview with the Vampire. The second thing: if the rumors are true, which book would be made into a movie? It had better not be Interview with the Vampire because I don’t think that it needs to be remade. Queen of the Damned, on the other hand, should be remade. Like I said in my previous post, Queen of the Damned was crap. Anyway, the third thing would be who would play the characters like Lestat, Louis, Gabrielle, etc. I’ll get to the rumors of Robert Downing Jr. possibly as Lestat in my next post. Anyway, I hope that the rumors are true and that a new Vampire Chronicles movie will come out.

Queen of the Damned: The Book vs. The Movie

I watching Queen of the Damned the other day and thought back to the book. Personally, I think that the movie is crap compared to the book. I think that because of a lot of things. The major thing that I have a problem with is that the story of the twins was taken out. How could the writers just omit the story of the twins? Their story was the main plot in Queen of the Damned. I would say the Lestat/Akasha storyline was secondary. The second thing that I have a problem with is that so many characters were just left out and/or killed off. The only characters that were actually killed in Queen of the Damned were Enkil, Akasha, Azim aka the vampire from the mountain, Baby Jenks, and plus a whole lot men and fledgling vampires. The last thing I have a problem with was the details. There are so many things that the people got wrong. Lestat, Marius, and Mael are supposed to be blond and blue eyed. Pandora was not from India. Maharet has a twin, the mother many times over of Jesse, and maker of Jesse. Lestat was turned by Magnus, not Marius. All I can say is that the only thing that the movie and the book had in common was the names. The only positive thing I can say about the movie is that the music was very appropriate for the movie and book.
