The character of Peter Vincent has been reinvented somewhat for the remake of Fright Night. No longer the slightly fusty presenter of a late night horror movie show, he’s now a Vegas magician with all of the bad hair, makeup and costume that implies.
Previously portrayed by Roddy McDowall, Vincent is now being essayed by one-time best-ever Dr. Who, David Tennant. Here’s a banner-prop showing off the Vincent look, courtesy of Shock Till You Drop.
We still love you, David. We just love Matt more. Ahem.
Fright Night will also star Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Toni Collette, and it has a script by Marti Noxon. It’s a glowing green blob of excitement on my radar, I have to admit.
