Robert Englund Talks ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’


In a recent interview Robert Englund, who had played Freddy Krueger in all previous incarnations of the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ franchise was asked how he felt about the new film. Englund stated, “I’m really curious. I’m a big fan of talented actors and there’s some real talented actors in this project. Clancy Brown, Connie Britton from Friday Night Lights. Especially a young actor that I love from The Sarah Conner Chronicles which was recently cancelled, Thomas Dekker – I think he’s playing the Johnny Depp role, and Jackie. I’ve been a fan of Jackie’s since the early ’80s. He did a wonderful film called ‘Breaking Away’. In fact, I think if you go back and really watch that movie Jackie’s probably the actor who invented the sort of slacker character even before Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and even before Kevin Smith’s Clerks. He kind of coined that character and I don’t think that he ever got enough credit for that.”
