THE VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT

RAY STEVENSON (Murlaugh) is perhaps best known for his starring role in the HBO/BBC television series Rome, portraying the legionary Titus Pullo to both critical and public acclaim. Since the series wrapped, he has been working nonstop in a wide variety of feature films. Stevenson recently finished production on director Jonathan Hensleigh's The Irishman, playing the title character in a true-life crime story of notorious mobster Danny Greene, also starring Christopher Walken, Vincent D'Onofrio and Val Kilmer. Hensleigh and Jeremy Walters wrote the screenplay based on Rick Porrello's nonfiction book "To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia.”

Earlier this year, Stevenson shot one of the lead roles in the postapocalyptic Warner Bros. feature The Book of Eli, opposite Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, for directors Albert and Allen Hughes. He plays an enforcer dispatched to kill Eli (Washington) as Eli fights his way across the American wasteland, protecting a sacred book that may hold the key to saving humanity.

Last year, Stevenson was seen in the lead role in Lionsgate's Punisher: War Zone, about the Marvel comics antihero Frank Castle and his quest to rid the world of evil after the death of his wife and daughter. Stevenson recently started shooting the Sony Pictures comedy The Other Guys, opposite Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, for director Adam McKay. The film is an action-comedy set in the world of the New York City cops.

Stevenson recently signed on to play Volstagg in the screen adaptation of Marvel comics' "Thor.” The character is inspired by the Shakespearean character Sir John Falstaff and is described as being more than 1,000 pounds of muscle and the life of the party. The film will reunite Stevenson with the director Kenneth Branagh, who acted opposite Stevenson in The Theory of Flight for director Paul Greengrass. Shooting on Thor is scheduled to commence in January 2010.

Other roles include the part of Dagonet, the knight who sacrifices his life for his comrades in Disney's/Bruckheimer's King Arthur; the cult favorite Outpost, for director Steve Barker; The Return of the Native, opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones; and Some Kind of Life, opposite Jane Horrocks.
