Like I said earlier today; I’ve come to realize anything Halloween-related is stuff you guys will just eat up. It only helps that this piece of casting has got me excited, as well.
Rob Zombie just announced via the Halloween MySpace page that Pat Skipper, who’s been in everything from Hellraiser: Bloodline to Seabiscuit, has just signed on to play Mason Strode, father of Laurie, in Zombie’s redux. Cooler than that though is the news that the one and only Dee Wallace (Cujo, The Howling, E.T.) has signed on for the role of Laurie’s mom, Cynthia Strode!
Finally some brilliant casting! My pre-love for this movie has just increased ten fold because of Wallace’s addition to the cast. Wanna know how much I dig this woman? Check out my MySpace page for a special video message from her.
Still no word on who will actually play Laurie, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing about it soon enough. Stay tuned!
Wish Dee Wallace was your mom in our forums!
