Platinum Dunes and New Line has found their Freddy Krueger for their “Nightmare on Elm St.” reboot…and it is definitely not Billy Bob Thornton. The new Freddy Krueger taking over Robert Englund’s place is an actor named, Jackie Earle Haley.
Jackie Earle Haley starred in the recent, “Watchmen” movie where he played Rorschach, the character that wears the hat, mask and long coat.
Excellent choice! While I didn’t like the “Watchmen” movie, I loved the character that Jackie Earle played in it. The guy’s a great actor and I think he’ll make a great Freddy. Now I’m really looking forward to the “Nightmare” reboot! Bring it on!
