Where is the old Freddy Krueger

Robert Englund the original actor to portray Freddy Krueger thru 8 Nightmare films and a tv show and a few songs and other weird non film appearances is still doing what he does best and portraying great characters on-screen. He recently stepped down from the role of Freddy and Best Supporting Actor Nominie Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen, Little Children) has taken over the role. On the April 15th episode of Bones, (titled Slasher) Englund will guest start in a walk on role as a janitor that works at Brenen’s old high school. Englund has been rumored to apear on V next season if the show is picked up for Season 2 by ABC. Englund was on the original V playing a good guy 2 years before he became the Child Serial Killer Freddy Krueger.

 Englund has done some recent voice work on The Spectacular Spider-Man as the Vulture and the Super Hero Squad as the Dreaded Dormamu. Two of his best or worst film recently have been Jack Brooks Monster hunter. In this he plays against type and is a good guy for once thru part of the film. the other is Zombie Strippers. If you have to watch Zombie then be warned it’s not his best work nor is it Jenna Jameson’s (who stars opposite Englund in the film) best work.  To catch him in a Nightmare related project check out Never Sleep again the upcoming Nightmare on Elm St documentary coming out May 5th.
