While it has been said that Elyas M’Barek has been confirmed for a role as a vampire, it doesn’t look to be the vampire Raphael, at least according to the official movie website. Elyas has only been labeled as Vampire Lieutenant, so we’ll see if that changes or if Raphael still has yet to be cast.
However, we do have two that have been confirmed for named parts.
Harry Van Gorkum will be playing the werewolf, Alaric. Alaric plays a big part during one thrilling tense scene, but the human form of Alaric comes into play later on in the book during another particularly tense scene. Harry has had guest roles in several TV shows (NCIS: Los Angeles, 24, Chuck), movies (The Karate Kid, Gone in 60 Seconds, Batman & Robin), as well as some voice acting for video games (Star Wars: The Old Republic, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare).
Chris Ratz will be playing one of Simon’s bandmates and “poet,” Eric. Chris has only recently been on the acting scene since 2005 and had a small role in the film The Incredible Hulk (the one with Edward Norton in the starring role).
