Slow But Steady

My actorly crush on Jimmi Simpson is a matter of public record, so even if he won’t get to rock out to karaoke Erasure, I’m glad to hear he will be hunting vampires with Abraham Lincoln.

As a side note, has anyone actually read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? I haven’t read any of the horror-and-classics mashups, and I’m not really sure I have it in me to. I don’t really need more drama getting in Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth’s way, and there’s something that feels a bit queasy to me about going from Confederates to zombies, especially if the substitution is meant to be funny or badass in a Chuck Norris Facts sort of way. Sometimes what we’ve got is fraught enough.
