Nine Inch Stakes?

Trent_Reznor300Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is to produce the score for, and make an appearance in Tim Burton’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Reznor will play Jack Barts, a vampire who slays the former President’s mum.

“The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night,” said Reznor on a NIN forum. “I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news that I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore.” (sic)

“So… do me a favour and act surprised, OK?” he added.

Reznor recently won an Oscar for his score to The Social Network, but has said that he intends to focus on Nine Inch Nails after his recent film work.
