Now that the New Moon soundtrack has been leaked, officially released, and reviewed, hype has already begun for Eclipse, the next film in the Twilight saga. No talk of the soundtrack yet, thank god, but the musical world will likely take notice of a cameo by a certain Godfather of Goth in the upcoming vampire teen drama.
“[Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy] plays a vampire in a flashback sequence,” Twilight actor Billy Burke revealed to MTV. “I didn’t get to see any of it, but all reports from the director David Slade, and everyone around say he just kicked ass.”
Murphy, who plays “an old Spanish, sort of unrelated vampire” in the flashback, joined Trent Reznor onstage recently for a stop on Nine Inch Nails’ “Wave Goodbye” tour in NYC. Perhaps now that Trent has some free time on his hands, his former collaborator will pull him into the film franchise. I mean, Trent is already dabbling in television work.
