‘Interview With The Vampire’ Has Landed Its Interviewer

by Thomas Tuna

What good is an interview without an investigative reporter?

A key–but often overlooked–character in Anne Rice’s 1976 classic Interview with the Vampire is journalist Daniel Molloy, who conducts the remarkable interview with the vampire Louis. That part in the upcoming AMC adaptation was cast this week, as reported by Variety.

Eric Bogosian–a Tony Award nominee for writing and starring in the play Talk Radio–will play Molloy, described as an “investigative journalist nearing the end of his career who’s given a second chance at the interview of a lifetime.” This part was played by Christian Slater in the 1994 film version of the novel.

Bogosian joins the previously announced Sam Reid as Lestat, Jacob Anderson as Louis, Bailey Bass as Claudia, Assad Zaman as Rashid, Christian Robinson as Levi and Kalyne Coleman as Grace.

The show’s first eight-episode season–expected to debut on AMC and AMC+ later this year–is led by series creator and showrunner Rolin Jones and executive producers Mark Johnson, Christopher Rice and Alan Taylor–who also directed the first two episodes. Anne Rice–who passed away last year–is also listed as an executive producer.

The earlier big-screen adaptation–starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt–follows the adventures of Lestat and Louis, beginning with Louis’ transformation into a vampire by Lestat in 1791.
