Shannynn Sossamon: Actress, Vampire Sire
Shannyn Sossamon (aka #3) will play Coraline, a sexy, seductive vampire that prays on humans in the new show Moonlight premiering Friday September 28th on CBS at 9pm. Sossamon replaces Amber Valletta (Hitch, Transporter 2) in the role. This isn’t the only shift.
The original cast was not as immortal as the bloodsuckers they were playing. Every actor save the male lead has been replaced since the pilot was originally sold to CBS way back when. From what I can tell it’s all for the better. As much as Valletta reminds us of Cameron Diaz (what, just me?) I’ll take Sossamon any day. Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars), with his vulnerable cynicism, is another improvement to the cast.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Sossamon, there’s only two things you need to know: she’s stupid-crazy-hot and she’s been in some great (40 Days and 40 Nights, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang) and some awful (Rules of Attraction, The Order) movies. Oh, and she’s also a DJ and has amazing style and is generally fresh to death. Keep reading for lots of pretty pictures.
