Jackie Earle Haley Comments on Freddy Krueger Rumor

Posted: February 18th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jackie Earle Haley Comments on Freddy Krueger RumorSubmit Comment
A few days ago, LatinoReview posted a scoop that Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach from "Watchmen") was in talks with Platinum Dune to star as Freddy Krueger in the upcoming "Nightmare on Elm Street" reboot.

Many fans fels that while Haley is a good actor, his short stature does not make him menacing enough to take on the role.

Later, producer Brad Fuller revealed that there is no truth to the rumor and that Platinum Dunes does not have anyone yet in mind to play Krueger.

Now, during a "Watchmen" press junket, Haley was asked to comment on whether he was ever approached for "Nightmare on Elm Street." His reply was that nobody has ever contacted him, adding that he will not be Freddy Krueger.

f*ck it. Shave Crispin Glover. He's creepy, talented and he's 6'1. I don't give a sh*t. I don't see anyone besting Englund's performance any time soon. He's pretty much one of a kind. Kinda like The Rock and Cena trying to play Schwarzeneggar. There's only one true Freddy.

I agree with Psyched and it would make sense. The dirty old man who is Freddy Kruger. In my opinion it would work better today at his age then it did even then. Yeah I said it here first.
