It was a gathering of some of the greatest vampires in cinematic history on the latest episode of "What We Do in the Shadows." Wesley Snipes showed up via Skype as Blade, Tilda Swinton was there as Eve from "Only Lovers Left Alive," Evan Rachel Wood as Sophie-Anne from "True Blood," Danny Trejo as Razor Charlie from "From Dusk Till Dawn," Paul Reubens as Amilyn from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," and even Dave Bautista made an appearance.
The premise was that they were part of a vampire tribunal there to judge the three main characters on trial for murder. In a twist on what we expect from television, a tribunal of well-known actors came together to judge the relatively unknown stars of the show, and hilarity ensued.
They even made note of the council members who couldn’t make the meeting: “Rob” (Pattinson, of the "Twilight" movies) wasn’t there because he wants to “leave it all behind,” “Kiefer” (Sutherland, of "The Lost Boys") wanted to be there but couldn’t make it, and “Tom and Brad” (Cruise and Pitt, of "Interview With the Vampire") were “not interested.” As hilarious as the episode was, the fact that these four weren’t there really just kinda sucks.
"What We Do in the Shadows" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
