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!
