[9.45 - French Time] For now David Tennant will not be you lawyer but he's your vampire expert... Sort of.

THR reports that the former Doctor Who star is joining the cast of Fright Night, the remake of the cult 1985 movie. Tennant will play Peter Vincent, a Las Vegas magician whose show revolves around horror movie imagery and who pretends to be a vampire expert.

In the original the character was the host of a late-night horror TV show and was played brilliantly by Roddy McDowall. In Fright Night, a teen called Charlie (Anton Yelchin) is convinced that his new neighbour (Colin Farrell) is a vampire. He seeks the help of Vincent but the so-called "expert" is an hapless incompetent.

If David Tennant can do more than a goofy version of the Doctor this choice could be interesting.
