Fright Night: Peter Vincent & Evil Ed Have Been Cast

According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision column, Doctor Who David Tennant and Kick-Ass' Christopher Mintz-Plasse have joined the cast of the Fright Night remake as, respectively, Peter Vincent and Evil Ed.
The duo join Colin Farrell as vampire Jerry Dandridge and Anton Yelchin as Charlie Brewster, who discovers that his next door neighbor (Dandridge) is a member of the undead.

Notes the report, "Tennant will play Peter Vincent, a character who in the original movie was played by Roddy McDowall as the host of a late-night horror show. In the remake, he’s a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror-movie imagery. Vincent claims to be a vampire expert, but when the teen turns to him for assistance, he’s less than helpful. Mintz-Plasse is playing Evil Ed, Yelchin’s friend who feels slighted that Charlie has left his nerdy past behind and thus joins the vampire’s coven."

Obviously Fright Night is picking up steam and heading towards production.

I agree with you, Teabag. I'm a MAJOR fan of the original Fright Night, I know writer/director Tom Holland, but to me this is sounding like they're intent on making this an "A" production rather than a hacked-out sequel merely designed to cash in on a library title.

Exactly Ed....normaly these horror remakes have a no hope cast and production. This sounds like they WANT to make the movie the best it can be, i mean Tennant as Peter...fantastic choice right there :)
