When we reported last week that Cam Gigandet would be playing a vampire in the adaptation of the TokyoPop graphic novel seriesPriest, the story seemed like a pretty simple twist on John Ford's The Searchers, substituting vampires for Native Americans. Boy was I wrong about that-- the Wikipedia entry for the series has given me a massive headache. And now it looks like Gigandet's character isn't even a vampire, disappointing legions of Twilight fans.

Talking to MTV, Gigandet said the vampire rumors were a bit exaggerated. “I think there was some miscommunication that I was a vampire but that’s not the case. I’m not a vampire.”

Instead, he says, "There are vampire-esque creatures in the movie, but it’s really a battle between good and evil. Paul Bettany and I are on this journey to rescue someone that we love, and it’s just this fascinating journey movie taking place in a different reality.”

Any manga experts want to help me figure out what on earth is going on here, and what character Gigandet is even playing? An can I keep my hopes about the Searchers reference alive? I need guidance here. Watch an excerpt from his MTV interview to search for clues:
