Benjamin Walker is running towards stardom. After conquering Broadway with "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," he now steps into the shoes and stovepipe hat of our 16th President in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
From the title you can gauge that this is no boring-ass biopic, but rather a tongue-in-cheek action extravaganza that reimagines The Great Emancipator as a monster killer of the highest caliber, and pretty handy with an ax.
We sat down with Walker in New York to discuss his take on the historical Lincoln, his upcoming monster movie "The Great Wall," and whether he could beat Steven Spielberg's Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis) in a fight.
Mind if we ax you a few questions?
Hey, nice! I always thought that should have been on the poster. "You better ax somebody."
You read up on Lincoln for this role and hit the obvious Wikipedia Greatest Hits: Gettysburg Address, Lincoln/Douglas debates, »
