Vincent Kartheiser has always had a bit of a creepy quality about him. Even when he played Angel‘s son Connor, he had this other-worldly vibe that made it impossible to turn away from the screen whenever he was on.
Then he showed up on Mad Men as the “I’ll do anything to get ahead” Pete Campbell and became part of the ensemble that scored a Screen Actors Guild award two years in a row.
Then I saw him in the trailer for In Time, and it hit me. He’s the new Christopher Walken. He’ll be the one casting departments call for the unpleasant, skin-crawling, other-intentions character that both repulses and attracts.
Watch the trailer for In Time below and see if you agree.
The mind-bending sci-fi tale opens Oct. 28, 2011 and stars Justin Timberlake, Olivia Wilde, Amanda Seyfried, and Cillian Murphy. Think you’re running out of time? These folks really are.
