Selma Blair says she's probably not 'Death' (

Date: Friday, May 30, 2008

Selma Blair talks to Wizard about the upcoming 'Hellboy II' movie. She also responds to rumors of her playing the lead in 'Death: The Hight Cost of Living', which is to be directed by Neil Gaiman (who wrote the comic series for Vertigo long ago) and produced by Guillermo del Toro.

"I've wanted to play 'Death' for a long time. On the set of the first ['Hellboy'], people would see me and say, 'You have to play Death. Oh my God, you have to do it,'" Blair told Wizard. "I didn't know [del Toro] was doing 'Death' at the time. He knew for sure that he'd be teaming up with Neil on that and he said, 'Yeah, you'd be good for Death.' Then it's been crickets. I think he definitely has his eye on someone, and I would know if it were me and it's not me. [Neil and I are] good friends, and that still didn't get me the job." [Laughs]
