Eric Bogosian to Play Daniel in AMC’s “Interview with a Vampire”

This just in-

it would appear that Eric Bogosian (“Uncut Gems,” “Succession“) has joined the undead. Well, kind of. AMC has announced Bogosian as part of the cast of their upcoming “Interview With a Vampire,” based on the works of the late great Anne Rice.

AMC says Bogosian will play reporter Daniel Molloy, who conducts the interview with Louis. Fans of “Interview” will recall Christian Slater played the character of Daniel in the 1994 feature film.

While Bogosian is a tremendous actor- he remains my #1 choice to play the late Anthony Bourdain in a project- he is most assuredly NOT how I picture Daniel. Without going into too many spoilers, Daniel becomes a very integral part of the vampire Armand’s life later in the Vampire Chronicles.

He’ll join previously announced cast Sam Reid as Lestat, Jacob Anderson as Louis, Bailey Bass as Claudia, and Assad Zaman as Rashid.  Alan Taylor directs the first two episodes, which will air on AMC and AMC+ sometime later in 2022.

We’ll let you know what we hear about this and other news.
