Alan Tudyk will be joining the cast of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as Stephen A. Douglas, the man that Lincoln ran against to become the 16th president of the United States.

Stephen Douglas was known as "The Little Giant" due to his small stature, but was also a political strong man and gave Lincoln a good run for the 1860 election,which as we all know, eventually went to Lincoln.

For those unfamiliar with the story, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a fictional take on the life of the 16th president and his on-going battle with vampires. When Lincoln was a child, his mother was killed by a vampire and from that moment on, Abraham vowed to rid the nation of the blood suckers.

Tudyk is mostly known for his work in Joss Whedon's projects, such as Firefly and it's big screen follow-up Serenity, as well as the television series 'Dollhouse.' Tudyk will be joining Benjamin Walker, who will be playing Abraham Lincoln, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie and Jimmi Simpson. Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is directing the film which is set for release June 22nd, 2012

I don't actually know much about this movie, but it sounds intriguing, I may have to check it out. Great find btw, Tudyk played my favorite character in A Knight's Tale so I'm game for this

@Hela- thanks for picking that up! I deleted the rest of his name while editing!

Tudyk is an under-appreciated actor in Hollywood, except by his fan base of course. He's a great actor and needs to be featured more!

Nothing but love for Alan Tudyk, but I've never heard of Benjamin Walker. Seems like an odd choice from what I just recently looked up about him.

The book was little dry in my opinion, but the concept was and still is pretty damn cool.
