Kristen Johnston sinks her teeth into Heckerling’s “Vamps”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Kristen Johnston has joined the cast of writer/director Amy Heckerling’s new feature film “Vamps,”

Written and to be directed by Heckerling, “Vamps” jumps on the vampire bandwagon to tell the story of two young, beautiful female vampires living the good nightlife in New York. Their world is disrupted, however, when love enters the picture and each has to make a choice that will jeopardize her immortality.

Filming will begin next week in Detroit, Michigan.

Johnston joins Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter, already on board as the two young vampires. Sigourney Weaver also has been cast as Cisserus, a bloodthirsty “stem” vampire who has created a dynasty.

Johnston plays Mrs. Van Helsing, a posh British woman who is suspicious of her son’s new love interest, Stacey (Ritter).

Most recently, Johnston was nominated for a 2010 Drama Desk Award for her starring role in The Mint Theater Company’s production of So Help Me God! She also had a recurring role on the final season of “Ugly Betty,” and has an upcoming guest-starring role on the HBO series “Bored To Death.”
