Dave Franco Joins 'Fright Night' -- EXCLUSIVE

Scrubs star Dave Franco has joined the cast of Fright Night, JustJared.com can exclusively confirm.

The 25-year-old actor (and younger brother of James Franco) is currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico with director Criag Gillespie (Lars And The Real Girl) filming the remake of the 1985 movie of the same name.

Fright Night is about a kid who lives next door to a vampire,” Dave told JustJared.com yesterday. “What movie doesn’t involve a vampire these days? (laughs) But this one will stand apart because it’s a comedic horror movie — the same thing as Drag Me To Hell and Shaun Of The Dead. I don’t think anybody’s made a vampire movie from that angle yet. It has an incredible cast — Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, Anton Yelchin and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.”

As for his character in Fright Night, Dave told us, “I play the arrogant asshole-bully. Anton plays the main kid so I’m his nemesis at school until he runs into Colin who is supposed to be the ultimate bad guy in the movie. Yeah I play the d–k, so it’s fun.”

We can’t wait to get in on the fun!

    What a douche bag! “I don’t think they’ve made a film from that angle yet” ?? It’s a REMAKE dummy, because the original is a cult classic. This has already been done and done well. Why do you think the studio ia spending so much $ on it?! Good thing he has a bit part. I can’t wait to see Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell in this film.

  • Butter_Fly

    They don’t need to remake this! The original is perfect!

  • Jokergurl

  • Yolanda

    HOT!!!!!!!! Are there any shirtless pics floating around of Dave you can post Jared????

  • natalie

    This guy is MUCH better looking than his brother. It’s not even close! James has beedy eyes and a wispy moustache. He reminds me of a rat.

    Dave is classically handsome. I’m not too sure about his acting chops, but he’s nice looking none the less.

  • angel

    He’s very good looking and cute at the same time what a outsanding cast , but COLIN FARRELL is the only reason i’m going to see this movie.
