Interview: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter's Ben Walker & Anthony Mackie
On June 22nd, 20th Century Fox and filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov will finally unleash ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, a film that explores the 16th President's secret life as a killer of bloodsuckers.
Benjamin Walker plays Abe, who in the course of 45 years goes from a troubled, revenge-seeking young man to the dignified, yet lethally dangerous, iconic leader of a country. Anthony Mackie portrays Lincoln's trusted friend and right hand man, Will, who assists Abe in his mission to slaughter the massive army of the undead. I sat down with the two actors recently to talk all things AL:VH and found them to be just as entertaining of a duo in real life as they are in this most unusual film.
