Jimmi Simpson Creepily Cast In ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’

Friday, February 25 by

You know him as one of the milk drinking, bathrobe rocking McPoyl brothers on “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” and soon you’ll know him as one of the stars of the A&E series “Breakout Kings,” and now you’re about to know him for a yet to be determined/released role in the historical action comedy(!?) Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

He’ll join other noteworthy cast members like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Anthonie Mackie, and Benjamin Walker in Timur Bekmambetov‘s feature film. The story, based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, concerns an alternate reality in which a teenage vampire who saves Mary Todd Lincoln trains the president to fight and kill vamps. It starts shooting next month and is sure to delight nerds of all classification, especially those who prefer the made up genre of Historical Macabre Comedy.
