Bloody-Disgusting learned of some interesting news at the HorrorHound Weekend this Saturday, which took place in Indianapolis, Indiana. Horror fav Daeg Faerch (Halloween) tells B-D that he is up for a role in Platinum Dunes' Near Dark remake, where he would play "Homer" (originated by Joshua John Miller in the original). Now, just to be clear, he has NOT been cast as of yet and is trying to get the role. My verdict? I give it a thumbs up! Good casting if you ask me. Like the 1987 original by Kathryn Bigelow, the remake centers on a young man who reluctantly joins a traveling "family" of evil vampires after the girl he tried to seduce bites him and turns him into one.
