This is going to be the hottest movie Depp has ever made-He was made for this movie!!I love Jackie Earl Haley and would love to see Shemar Moore [from Criminal Minds] play Quenton and Giles Marini play a vamp also. [Dr. Reid [real name?] from Criminal Minds would also make a gorgeous vamp]Another suggestion, Vigo Mortensen for Lone Ranger!!!

Michelle would be more suited to Angelique. NOT Elizabeth!!!!! omg I loved Dark Shadows. Maybe they could blend the two characters. Elizabeth was stuffy, elderly, ugh. Angelique at least had the beauty and mystery Michelle has!
