The Internet is good for quite a few things, not the least of which are adorable cat videos and spoiling the heck out of movies.
Last week's revelation that Oscar-winner Trent Reznor is both scoring and appearing in the upcoming "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" falls into the latter category. It turns out that the musician's role of Jack Barts, the vampire who slays Lincoln's mom, was meant to be a secret!
Reznor took to the Nine Inch Nails forum to address fans about, amongst other things, the new How To Destroy Angels record, his work on "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and, of course, his part in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Trent Reznor may have not physically appeared in "The Social Network," but the Nine Inch Nails front man was all over the Oscar-winning film. Reznor, alongside Atticus Ross, composed the haunting score that earned both men an Academy Award for Best Original Score, leaving an indelible mark on one of the best films of 2010.
Now, according to Badass Digest, the rocker will take a bite out of another film project: the upcoming big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter."
Entertainment Weekly confirms that in addition to composing the score for the flick, which is being directed by Timur Bekmambetov, Reznor is also reportedly in talks to make a cameo in the film as Jack Barts, the vampire who kills Honest Abe's mother, which in turn sends our 16th President on a vampire killing spree of his own.
