What character or archetype does he play?

.

Tennant is playing a Las Vegas stage magician who gets enlisted to help the teenage hero fight the vampire. It's basically the Roddy McDowall part from the original, but they're reinterpreted the part to make him a more of a hip, modern show-biz type than an aging late-night horror movie host.

Probably not a bad idea, since, sadly, "Chiller Theater"-type hosts aren't really part of popular culture anymore.
