From vampire to Musketeer?


Photo from Facebook group Kyle Schmid should star as D'Artagnan in the new Three Musketeers movie

There is an abundance of chatter on the net about The Three Musketeers movies.  Yes, I did say movies. There are currently two movies, both said to be coming to us in 3D, that are in the works. One will be Warner Bros.’ version of the legend, and the other will be brought to us from none other than Summit Entertainment, the company who gave us the popular vampires from The Twilight Saga.

With two movies happening, who do you think should be cast as the musketeers? Well, there is a new campaign online and the fans are backing Kyle Schmid to play the role of D’Artagnan in either movie. Mr. Schmid is best known for his role as Henry Fitzroy, the illegitimate son of King Henry the VIII, in the short lived television show Blood Ties. He has also appeared in Joy Ride: Dead Ahead, Smallville, The Thaw and many more. With his Jon Bon Joviesque looks, and his actual capability to act, I personally think he would make a very interesting D’Artagnan and apparently, I’m not the only one. This campaign to cast Mr. Schmid just went public today and a Facebook group has been created for anyone who supports this idea. You can check out the group here.

Since my New Years Day article titled, There’s a new vampire in town and Henry is his name, I realized that Kyle Schmid has a very devoted and persistent fan base. This might be the first time you have heard his name, but I have a feeling it won’t be the last. I think Kyle Schmid is a name that we will be hearing a lot more about in the future!

    Have to admit I'm partial as I've been a fan since Blood Ties, some others have been fans of his earlier work. All in all though, just by seeing the acting talent he exhibited in Blood Ties I can see anyone else playing D'Artagnan. This role would be perfect for him and would fit him like a glove. I can only hope that the studios take notice of him and do the right thing, sign him up! I'd love to see him in this movie. He'd be great in it.

    Whoops, should read "can't" see anyone else...

    Kyle Schmid is perfect for the role of a swashbuckling hero, like d'Artagnan. His portrayal of Henry Fitzroy leaves no doubt that he is THE choice to play the lead in this kind of film. Warner Brothers or Summit Entertainment have a golden opportunity to introduce a new star. So, to get in the spirit of things, "All for one and one for all!!"

    Kyle would be awesome as d'Artagnan. He's deffinately got the looks and personality, plus he's already got experience playing a historical character, and he brings so much emotion to every character he plays. Not to mention the loyal fanbase that would be waiting in line opening night to see him, and that gorgeous smile, on the big screen...

    Oooh, I soo love that line "With his Jon Bon Joviesque looks" ;o)
    I agree with all the posters here thus far, Kyle would be perfect for the role. Not just in terms of the fact that he is indeed a "looker", but his talent (for such a young man) is remarkable (how many of us couldn't get over the fact that he was a mere what 22 or so when he played vampire Henry Fitzroy). It's about time H'wood stood up and paid (more) attention to this noteworthy actor!

    Thanks so much for keeping Kyle in print. It's good to know that others are paying attention. He's such a good actor and deserves more than bad guy roles in low budget horror movies.

    Nice article, Raelynn. Kyle Schmid certainly deserves better parts than he's been getting (JR2) and he would make an excellent D'Artganan just as he made an excellent Henry. Also in pre-production is another Henry Fitzroy show, "Smoke and Mirrors" and as much as I'd love to see him in the (good) movies, I'd love to see Henry again.
