“When I tell people that I’m an actor they go ‘oh, what restaurant do you work at?’ but when I tell them that I’m a vampire they perk up and they go ‘oh my god, what movie where you in?’… People suck.”
–Alowisus Hewson (Jason Antoon)
Things are starting to heat up on Vamped Out. Last week Al had taken ill after drinking blood that had been mislabeled. Marie (played by Sena Kofoed) calls in Al’s friend and fellow vampire, Ardalion (played by Sebastian Roche) to save him. Ardalion doesn’t seem all that fond of humans, at least not Marie and especially not Elliot. When Elliot (played by Kevin Pollak) confronts Ardalion and asks him if Al had indeed spoon fed the entire vampire mythology to Bram Stoker, Ardalion refuses to answer and warns Elliot to keep away from him for Elliot’s ‘safety and longevity’.
Elliot decides to head over to Billy’s office to let him know that something terrible has happened to Al and we the viewers get to know a little more about Elliot, Al and Billy when Elliot and Billy butt heads. We learn that Elliot had been an award winning documentary director whose last project had been 22 years ago. Not being able to follow up his last documentary, Elliot ended up drinking himself out of the business. Billy (played by Samm Levine), a relative newcomer to the business has only been a manager for 13 months and had discovered Al while Al was preforming Hamlet in the park.
When asked by Elliot if he believed Al was indeed an actual vampire Billy replies, “Either he’s crazy or he really is a…” and trails off.
Elliot still isn’t convinced and it looks like it’s going to take a lot more to prove to him that Al really is a vampire so tune in next Monday at babelgum.com for Episode 3 of Vamped Out.
