Watchmen’s Rorschach is The New Freddy Krueger
Also known for his 1976 role as Kelly in the “Bad News Bears” and Dukes in Will Ferrell’s “Semi Pro”, Jackie Earle Haley is going to be taking over the role that made Robert Englund famous back in the 1980’s as the infamous Freddy Krueger who terrorizes high school kids in their dreams. I’m glad to hear he got the part. I thought he was excellent in “Watchmen” as Rorschach,and I just recently learned he was that Kelly character in the old 1976 “Bad News Bears” movie,but as soon as I was told he was in the “Bad News Bears” movie, I knew it was him. It brought back a bit of nastalgia for me. I used to love watching the “Bad News Bears” as a kid. He was in the acting business up until the early 90’s,1993 to be exact. Then left for a while ,and made a come back in 2006 by playing a pedophile in Todd Field’s “Little Children”.
This latest installment of “Nightmare on Elm Street” is New Line Cinema’s attempt at a reboot of the franchise, and will be directed by Samuel Bayer. The people behind this movie are the same ones behind the recent new “Friday the 13th” reboot. They will start filming the new “Elm Street” flick on May 5 in Chicago. Jackie Earle Haley will also appearing in Martin Scorseseâ€™s upcoming “Shutter Island.”
