I hope you're ready to see Stephen Moyer put his fangs away for a while and join the rest of the living world, because the man behind Bill Compton has just snagged two new movie roles. First, he'll star in The Double with Richard Gere and Topher Grace, an action movie in which he'll play a Russian spy. Also on his plate is The Big Valley, where Moyer will slip into a role as an attorney defending the rights of a family of ranchers in Louisiana who are trying to keep their land protected from railroad companies in the '60s.
Moyer was relatively unknown before his True Blood days, so I'm looking forward to seeing what the actor can do outside of his breakout role. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like either of these roles will finally let Moyer use his real British accent (call me crazy but sometimes the fake Southern accent can get irritating).
