Marilu Henner, Zak Orth and Malcolm McDowell have joined the cast of Amy Heckerling’s new film Vamps.

Henner will portray Angela, a deathly ill woman who gets “awakened” to her former hot self. Orth will portray Renfield, a young nerdy friend of Stacy (played by Ritter) and Goody (played by Silverstone,) who tries to be much tougher than he actually is. McDowell will portray vampire Vlad Tepish, otherwise known as the infamous Vlad the Impaler, who enjoys wearing velvet jogging suits and knitting.

The film also co-stars Sigourney Weaver, Richard Lewis, Wallace Shawn, Justin Kirk, Dan Stevens, Todd Barry and Kristen Johnston.
