He might be the most notorious vampire you've never heard of. Stuart Townsend, that is, the Irish actor tapped to play Lestat de Lioncourt in "The Queen of the Damned," the upcoming sequel to "Interview With the Vampire." Well-known in Ireland and England, the 28-year-old may only be familiar to U.S.

Stuart TOWNSEND has often played the pretty boy, in roles ranging from the garden-variety cad in 2007's "Chaos Theory" to supernatural heartbreakers such as the vampire Lestat in 2000's "Queen of the Damned" and the dandy Dorian Gray in 2003's "The League of Extraordinary Gentleman." But the 35-year-old Irishman is the first to say how little these roles have meant to him. "The last acting job I had that I really loved was a theater job that I did in 2000," he says.

Actor Stuart Townsend, the boyfriend of Charlize Theron, says that the actress' recent injury on the set of "Aeon Flux" was bad but could have been much worse. Townsend said that Theron was doing a back-flip somersault while wearing platform shoes when she slipped and hurt her neck. "The slipped disc went almost into the spinal cord," he said. "She's fine, but could've been in a lot of trouble." Townsend said he expected her to be laid up for six weeks.

Carine Adler's "Under the Skin" takes us into the comfortable suburban Liverpool home of a middle-aged woman (Rita Tushingham) who has just been told she has brain cancer, and has anywhere from three weeks to three months to live. The terrible news and her subsequent swift demise devastate her 19-year-old daughter Iris (Samantha Morton) and her 24-year-old daughter Rose (Claire Rushbrook).

"Shade" is a clever and adroit B picture with A virtues, starting with its ensemble cast, headed by Stuart Townsend, Gabriel Byrne, Thandie Newton and Jamie Foxx. The result is a diverting genre piece about crooked poker players that takes its title from a gambler's term for misdirection. Loaded with dizzying cons and betrayals, it pays off with a satisfying and unpredictable finish.

"Shooting Fish," not as inspired or amusing as it might be, leans heavily on the considerable charm of its three young and attractive principals. Their charisma and the film's larky spirit, English locales and elaborate cons might be just enough to divert easily satisfied date-night audiences. Even so, "Shooting Fish" is an awful lot like lots of other pictures with an overly complicated and improbable plot that you try to follow at your peril.

In her first film released since winning an Oscar as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in "Monster," Charlize Theron has chosen a part that on the surface could not be more different from the seedy, desperate hard-scrabble Florida prostitute. In Australian filmmaker John Duigan's romantic historical epic "Head in the Clouds," Theron's Gilda Besse is the daughter of a super-rich French champagne magnate (Steven Berkoff) and a rich American socialite.

"NIGHT STALKER," which premieres tonight on ABC, is the slightly retitled remake of the 1970s ABC series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," featuring the great Darren McGavin as a crime reporter nosing about in the world of vampires and other weird beasties. McGavin has been digitally inserted into a scene in tonight's episode and, although there are a few decent spook-show thrills, nothing else here is as scary as that.
