    In our exclusive video interviews with the A-list cast of the upcoming thriller Fright Night, ARTISTdirect.com polled the actors on what music they listen to in order to get into character. Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots said they listened to "This is the Day" by The The, along with a lot of Blur and Graham Coxon. They were incredibly into Brit pop on the set, it would appear.

    Colin Farrell also said that he always listens to music to get into character, hoping that music will somehow be a guiding light for him when he acts. He would not reveal what he listened to in order to prepare to play the menacing villain in the film. Foiled! Farrell did admit that listens to the Tree of Life soundtrack. A lot.

    Christopher Mintz-Plasse is a big music buff, but he doesn't think the music he listens to personally got him amped up to play a vampire in Fright Night. He did reveal that he listens to Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime and more. He is a rocker, huh?
