Anne Rice Reveals Dream Cast for 'Vampire Chronicles' TV Show

Anne Rice recently revealed that she has obtained the rights to develop a television series based on her Vampire Chronicles books. Now, she is dishing on her dream cast!

The legendary author envisions a show like Game of Thrones for her book series.

While Anne did not reveal her pick to play Lestat, she did dish on her pick for Louis. “It’s Louis’ beauty that attracted Lestat to him, and I would hope it would be a beautiful actor like Matt Bomer. Somebody with that incredible beauty. Brad Pitt did a beautiful job in the original film, and he set the bar very high when it comes to physical beauty,” she told Entertainment Weekly.

“I would absolutely love it if Matthew MacFadyen, the British actor, ever wanted to be part of this and wanted to play Marius. Marius is one of the pillars of the Chronicles – 2,000 years old – and I am an absolute, stoned fan of Matthew MacFadyen in Ripper Street and every other show that he’s ever done. Talk about quality TV — Ripper Street is just outstanding,” Anne said.
