The Story Of Bonnie And Clyde Casts Sean Faris As The Lead

Cypress Moon Studios’ indie production The Story of Bonnie and Clyde now has its Clyde. Actor and model Sean Faris is set to star opposite Lindsay Pulsipher in the Tonya S. Holly directed film.

According to Variety, Faris has signed on to play the role of Clyde Barrow in the film, which “aims to explore many aspects of the lives of the Depression-era bank robbers that have never been seen on the big screen before.” Warren Beatty played the role of Clyde in the 1967 film. Faris turns thirty next year (just five days before Beatty celebrates his 75th birthday), which puts the actor at about the same age as Beatty was when he took on the role.

Back in September we shared the news that Pulsipher was set to take over the role of Bonnie, which had recently been vacated by Hilary Duff, whose pregnancy interfered with the production schedule. Pulsipher played a recurring role on HBO’s True Blood last season. Faris is no stranger to vampires either. He played the role of Ben McKittrick in a few episodes of the CW’s The Vampire Diaries last year.
