Stephen Moyer Joins Cam Gigandet In ‘Priest’: Vampires Unite!

August 25th, 2009 // 1 Comment

Breaking out of the mold as a fang-bearing creature, Stephen Moyer is starring in yet another vampire-focused project. The True Blood star–best known for his role of vampire Bill Compton on the HBO series–will be portraying what is described as “the mortal brother of the protagonist” in the film, Priest.

Priest is based on a comic series, centered on a clergyman who “rebels against the church to avenge a group of murderous vampires who have kidnapped his niece.” Paul Bettany stars as the main character.

The flick also stars Twilight alumnus Cam Gigandet, who aids the priest in his cause because of his love for the man’s niece. This is genius casting. It’s a role reversal for both Moyer and Gigandet, but still vampire-centric enough to lure in some blood-thirsty True Blood and Twilight fans.

    I am amazed at the striking resemblance between Stephen Moyer and David McilWraith you would swear they were related.The only difference being knowing that he is Vampire and David McilWraith as Professor Murdoch is still a mystery.But I do love this story line as well.
