Thanks to the internet, information travels quickly. Like, really quickly. Which is why despite Trent and director Timur Bekmambetov wanting to keep it a secret, every disaffected emo fanboy and fangirl of Reznor knows that not only is he scoring Abraham: Vampire Hunter, he’s also acting in it. Reznor took to the NIN forums to comment on the insanity.
It’s still a bit of a mind-warp to contemplate that Trent Reznor won a fucking Oscar. Seeing him tanned and in a tuxedo was a trip for me, since I grew up watching him caterwauling into microphones about fucking people like animals and boring holes into heads and shit. However, this is even fucking crazier. Trent Reznor is going not only be composing the score for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, he’s going to be acting in it.
