Hesseman Signs Up for Zombie’s Halloween 2

Howard HessemanRob Zombie dropped the news today that Howard Hesseman has signed up with him for his upcoming “>Halloween 2. Zombie made the revelation through his Myspace blog (the modern man’s press release medium), and revealed that Hesseman would be playing one Uncle Meat, owner of Uncle Meat’s Java Hole.

Hesseman joins up with recently announced actors Dayton Callie (Deadwood) and Richard Brake (Perkins’ 14, Doom, Outpost) in Zombie’s second installment of the Halloween reboot.

I know, I know, I cringe a little too. I mean, not about Hesseman; he’s a great enough guy. The title of his character even sounds funny, and funny is good. It’s just a little difficult to feel that excited about this project, given the huge fallout the first film encountered. It feels about as wise to make another Halloween film as it does for us to invade Iraq a third time. Will we ever learn?

    He should change it to Uncle Meat’s Cornhole.

  • Gus Bjork

    I’ve never seen a Rob Zombie film. I haven’t avoided them, they just hold no interest to me. This trend continues.

    …Uncle Meat’s Java Hole…

    • Johnny Butane

      Makes ya proud to be a horror fan, doesn’t it?

      • Uncle Creepy

        *grumbles incoherently for 73 minutes and punches wall*

        • NeoKefka

          Ah, so we’ve already got a preview of what the dinner for fiends discussing this will be like.

  • nakattack

    I want this movie to be released just so I can hear another hilarious Dinner For Fiends

    • Johnny Butane

      And you will, my friend… you will.

    Every single movie of Zombie is like one of his “songs”….it’s about other movies.

    His teenage look at horror is getting realy tiresome…
    What’s next….Warwick Davis as a gay, midget, male stripper?

    The mind is like a parachute…it only works when it is open.

  • Johnny Butane

    Sadly, a lot of people do, Kid, which is why we have to keep talking about it…

  • kiddcapone

    What’s next?

    Jonathan Winters playing Maude Frickert?

    Who gives a fucking shit about this piece of garbage. 3 horrible films later, and Rob Zombie STILL can’t write anything better or more clever than Uncle Meat’s Java Hole.

    Anyone looking forward to this flick needs a lobotomy.

      I’m getting more enjoyment out of your avatar photo of the Koala than I’m going to get outta Halloween 2.

      • Tristan Sinns

        Now, imagine that Koala with a bad white trash child hood, a growth spurt that puts it at about 350, and wielding a ginormous butcher knife.

        *That’s* a movie!

  • hellbilly_drp

    He shoulda been in the first Zombie installment. Couldn’t you just see him introduce himself…
