My Fun Interview with David Tennant for "Fright Night!" No TARDIS Required! 


I love, love, love David Tennant! The erstwhile Dr. Who rides his TARDIS and appears in his first major Hollywood role in “Fright Night” (yes, he appeared in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” but it wasn’t a big role compared to “Fright Night”).

In the movie, Tennant takes over the Peter Vincent role that Roddy McDowall made famous in the original 1985 “Fright Night.” This time though, he’s not a late-night TV monster host but a magician wearing guyliner in the vein of Criss Angel.

It was an honor to talk to the Scottish actor even though it was just a satellite interview live from London. We talked about:

*** What attracted him to working on “Fright Night”
*** How he researched the role
*** Was he a fan of the original film?
*** Working with Colin Farrell
*** The enduring allure of vampires in pop-culture

Here you go, and have fun!



Here's more info on "Fright Night" from Yahoo:

Senior Charlie Brewster finally has it all -- he's running with the popular crowd and dating the hottest girl in high school. In fact, he's so cool he's even dissing his best friend Ed. But trouble arrives when an intriguing stranger Jerry moves in next door. He seems like a great guy at first, but there's something not quite right -- and everyone, including Charlie's mom, doesn't notice. After witnessing some very unusual activity, Charlie comes to an unmistakable conclusion: Jerry is a vampire preying on his neighborhood. Unable to convince anyone that he's telling the truth, Charlie has to find a way to get rid of the monster himself.
