William Hurt Joins Cast Of ‘The Countess’

Ethan Hawke may be out of Julie Delpy’s upcoming drama, The Countess, but she’s just added a dose of cool to the growing cast with one of our favorite actors: William Hurt, according to MTV. Delpy, currently making the rounds promoting her feature directing debut “2 Days in Paris,” was excited to tell MTV that “William Hurt is now on board. And so is Daniel Bruhl (who appears in her current film), a fantastic German actor.” Delpy stars in the film alongside already confirmed actors Radha Mitchell and Vincent Gallo. The film is about the legendary Elizabeth Bathory, who inspired many a vampire myth with sadistic rituals that included bathing in the blood of virgins.
