And maybe even from the dead?
What We Do In The Shadows creator Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Concords) has announced that Mark Hamill will appear on Season 2 of the show based on the 2014 movie of the same name.
Who Does What Where Now?
For those of you who don’t know What We Do In The Shadows is a pretty funny comedy about:
The daily (or rather, nightly) lives of three vampires, who’ve lived together for over 100 years, on Staten Island, New York.
The movie version starred, the now pretty well known, Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Rhys Darby the show has a few familiar faces in Kayvan Novak (MIB: International) and Matt Berry (IT Squad).
Though I’m not familiar with enough to compare the two, I thought the movie was a funny and pretty original look at vampires especially considering how oversaturated the genre had become. It also put co-writer/director and star Taika Waititi on the map which was a welcome breath of creative Kiwi air through the increasingly stale film industry.
Here’s a pretty short but decent sample:
No further details are currently available as to what Hamill’s role will entail.
Look for Season 2 of What We Do In The Shadows this spring on FX.
And just in case anyone is looking for another Star Wars tie-in here, zombies are official Lucasfilm canon. Thanks again, Kathy!
