Rufus Sewell to Play Anti-Lincoln Vampire

The Timur Bekmambetov–directed, Tim Burton–produced adaptation of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter already has its hero-president in Benjamin Walker. Now it has its bad guy: Rufus Sewell will play Adam, the lead (evil, not sexy) vampire. Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dominic Cooper are also on board. Question: Will anyone be playing a vampire Stephen Douglas? [Variety]
