Says She'll Be Playing Mary Todd From The Ages Of 19-46 In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'After a series of smaller parts in “Live Free or Die Hard” and “Death Proof,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead set geek hearts aflutter as the quirky, purple-haired vixen Ramona Flowers in “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World.” Now Winstead is starting to step up to where she belongs: into leading lady roles. While her latest part is in the prequel, “The Thing,” that's just the first of the big projects on the horizon for the actress, ranging from a big-budget vampire flick to an indie dramedy.

Although “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” was a box office disappointment when it was released last fall, the film’s leading lady, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, has found herself more in-demand than ever. On October 14th, she stars in “The Thing,” a prequel/companion piece to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic, and next year she appears in the unwieldy, but promising Timur Bekmabetov film “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Talking to The Playlist during the press rounds for “The Thing,” Winstead explained that she was excited as audiences are to see the forthcoming film, not the least of which because she didn’t take part in any of the action scenes.

Plus Actor Reveals Details Of His Character In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HunterThe words "terminally undersung" and "Alan Tudyk" are almost inseparable. The actor has been a familiar presence on screen for a decade, cropping in the likes of "28 Days" and "Wonder Boys," before going on to geek stardom with a big role in "Firefly." Since then, he's developed a deeply eclectic career, mixing comedy like "Dodgeball" and "Knocked Up" with more serious performances like "3:10 to Yuma" or his surprisingly badass villain in "Dollhouse," and even playing a performance-capture android in "I, Robot." He's someone that we're always happy to see on screen, and we're delighted that he's about to be seen in theates in a rare lead role, in the surprisingly enjoyable horror-comedy "Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil" (a film that has quietly managed to get a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
