Based on the best-selling vampire dystopia novels by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, The Strain is being eyed for a 13-episode pickup by FX. Francis Capra will play Crispin, a mid-30s scammer who is always on the lookout for the easy and high-paying way out. The role would be a recurring one if the pilot goes to series. Capra is repped by Talent House LA and Curtis Talent Management. Francis joins Robert Maillet, John Hurt, Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro and Sean Astin in the drama from del Toro and Carlton Cuse.
Francis Capra talks to fans on Reddit about the Veronica Mars Movie, life and his career.

A Message from Kristen:
I am currently the happiest blonde in a hamster ball the world has ever seen. We have been waiting so long to make this movie dream a movie reality, and it’s because of YOUR commitment, YOUR persistence, that we finally have a chance. We just have one more step to go.
You have banded together like the sassy little honey badgers you are and made this possibility happen. i promise if we hit our goal, we will make the sleuthiest, snarkiest, it’s-all-fun-and-games-‘til-one-of-you-gets-my-foot-up-your-ass movie we possibly can.
I promise to give it my all. i promise to work my hardest to give everyone a little bit more Veronica, and i will be oh so honored to do so.
I only ask for one thing in return.
If I ever die, do me a favor. Go on Oprah and tell the world that I loved kittens.
