John C. Reilly sucks

I don't know who's at the top of the Most Unlikely Leading Man list, but John C. Reilly has gotta be on there somewhere -- talented though he may be, he's not what anyone would describe as "traditionally handsome". And yet over the past few years he's steadily gone from reliable supporting player and porn sidekick to the main name on the poster.

Reilly takes center stage again for CIRQUE DU FREAK, slipping some fake fangs in his mug to play a vampire in Universal's adaptation of the popular (?) children's book series. Paul Weitz (brother of GOLDEN COMPASS director Chris Weitz) will produce and direct.

The story involves a schoolboy who attends a bizarre sideshow and becomes the "assistant" to Reilly's undead performer, and eventually finds himself a half-vampire and the catalyst between rival bloodsucker clans. There are 12 books in the series, so the studio is obviously hoping for a franchise with some HARRY POTTER-ish longevity.
Extra Tidbit: Reilly has made several appearances as "Sasquatch" in Tenacious D episodes and in their feature film.

Hey, the curly hair worked for Danny Huston. Not to mention actors who can also do comedy tend to be some of the creepiest guys in movies. Though this doesn't sound like it's meant to be scary. Hell, if ever I think Reilly can't be menacing, I'll just think about his part in "Gangs of New York" (or his cameo in "The Thin Red Line"). At least he's taking a break from all the comedies, cuz while he's very funny, I usually prefer him in roles that are a tad more serious.
