'Bloody Valentine' Remake Gets a Villain

Horror fans are savvy enough to know that when a remake casts stars of teen-skewing TV shows in the leads, that can mean only one thing: the dreaded PG-13. The Hollywood Reporter says that television veteran Kerr Smith has joined the cast of My Bloody Valentine 3-D. He'll be playing Axle Palmer, and THR describes him as married to Sarah (Jaime King) and the nemesis of Tom (Jensen Ackles), which sounds villainous.


Smith was effectively creepy as a real jerk in Final Destination and I assume he'll bring some of that edgy attitude to his role as a nemesis, but he's better known for his roles on Dawson's Creek and Charmed.

Likewise, Ackles is currently starring in Supernatural and is also a veteran of Smallville and -- surprise! -- Dawson's Creek. King has a decent string of movie roles as well as TV appearances and will be in Frank Miller's upcoming The Spirit. But I suspect that the casting of the young-looking Smith and Ackles means they're trying to appeal to the teen crowd.
