Spider-Man: No Way Home Star Dishes on New Vampire Role


From the sweeping majesty of Dracula’s cape to the picture-perfect teens of Twilight, vampires have traditionally been portrayed as beautiful, elegant, commanding, and full of themselves. Reginald the Vampire aims to change that.

Based on Johnny B. Truant’s Fat Vampire novels, Syfy will hold a modern mirror to the less-reflected night creatures sucking high-calorie liquid proteins. The series stars Jacob Batalon—best known for playing Peter Parker aka Spider-Man’s best friend Ned Leeds—as Reginald Baskin, newly turned vampire.

“Vampires are vapid, very beautiful, but there’s nothing going on in their minds,” Batalon tells us. “Reginald is a very thoughtful and intelligent person. He toys with these vampires who are clearly not on his intellectual level.” This is because the newly-sired immortal can’t compete on a physical level. Even at his human day job, Reginald was bullied and belittled. 

Created by mystery drama series master Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks, Channel Zero, Project Blue Book, 2013’s Dracula with Jonathan Rhys Meyers), Reginald the Vampire is a dramedy informed by off-kilter, self-effacing horror. “His writing is unique,” Batalon says. “I would say Twin Peaks-esque, but we’re steering away from things people will think we’re inspired by.” The series still wears its influences on its cape. “If you’re a true fan of vampire-themed things in movies and television, you will absolutely get the references.”
