    What, no Robert Pattison?

    Olyphant is way too good looking for Abe! My quatloos are on Brody. He was pretty buff in that Predator movie and Abe of course must be buff. :p

    I think it's an awesome idea. The main problem is finding a tall, skinny, ugly actor to play Abe. Not too many of those in Hollywood, judging from the actors trying out for the role.

    It's a novel. It's by the person who wrote "Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies."

    I vote for this guy: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0743622/ from "30 Rock." Just picture him with a beard and a top hat.

    I just finished reading it. It's pretty good and ties in the slavery issue and Vampires using them as cattle.

    Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis should just merge their Lincoln project with this one. :D

    The actor who is playing Lincoln doesn't actually have to be Lincoln's height. Just surround him with actors who are shorter, like most the cast of nuBSG. :)

    Look how tall Grace Park looks next to Scott Caan.

    More importantly, it was a bestselling novel.

    Well, to be fair, it is more tasteful than their original idea, Martin Luther King: Klan-MILF Ravisher.

    Tom Hardy was first approached but turned down the role due to his upcoming schedule for "The Dark Knight Rises". We had an entire thread about the concept and book several months ago. Out of those listed I'm not sure who would be best for the role. Maybe Benjamen Walker...I dunno.

    It'd be funny if they wound up getting Liam Neeson. :lol:

    Lincoln-I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
