Now that Ben Walker has been cast to play the vamp killing prez in ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ other casting news is starting to fall into place. The biggest news right now is that Walker might be joined on camera by Joaquin Phoenix.

Rumor is that he’s been offered the role of Lincoln’s Mentor in the film if he wants it. There’s a lot of excitement about it because if he takes it, it will be his first movie role since ‘I’m Still Here’, the pseudo documentary where he and is brother in law, Casey Affleck spent a year taking Phoenix’s career down the fictional rabbit hole of drugs and hard core rap.
