His filomography has no shortage of meaty roles, but with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Anthony Mackie found one he could really sink his teeth into.

In this tale that spins history on its head, the New Orleans native plays William Johnson, Honest Abe's childhood friend who gives him political advice by day and helps him slay vampires by night.

In our exclusive video, Mackie talks about his favorite vampire movies (hint: Twilight is not on the list), Barack Obama's super power and his thoughts on the biggest civil issue of today, same-sex marriage.
