Author Meg Cabot Says Michael Nouri was Sexiest Vampire; Is She Right?

michael_nouri.gif.jpegOxford University Press has a brief Q&A up on its blog with Meg Cabot, the author of Insatiable (a modern sequel to Dracula) and a number of other books and series.

We’ve been curmudgeons about the vampire trend before–and we’ve also done a great deal to feed the fire–but this post isn’t either. Really, we just want to point out that, when asked who the sexiest vampire of all time is, Cabot responded that she thinks it is Michael Nouri (pictured), circa 1979 as Dracula.

Which made us think: Is that right? Because, come to think of it, there have been a whole cellar-full of a sexy vampires over the years. No: Not Robert Pattison. Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise come to mind first. And then there was Kiefer Sutherland and Jami Gertz. And then Salma Hayek and, uh, Aaliyah.

But this GalleyCat writer is no expert. Who am I missing, readers? Who do you think is the sexiest person to portray literature’s most famous bloodsucker? Could it actually be Michael Nouri?
