Rob Zombie on Facebook
More casting news coming in from Rob Zombie via his Facebook page for his latest film, The Lords of Salem. Yet another genre favorite has joined the ever expanding cast. If you close your eyes, you can almost see the mayhem in your head.
“Billy [Drago] takes on the role of Judge Samuel Mather a key player in the history of the Lords,” says Zombie. “Billy is best known for his roles in such films as Pale Rider, Freeway, The Hills Have Eyes (2006) and The Untouchables. In addition to film he has also appeared in numerous TV show including: “Hill Street Blues”, “T.J. Hooker”, “The Adventures of Brisco County Jr”. and “Walker, Texas Ranger”.”
Drago joins the previously announced Dee Wallace as “Sonny,” a self-help guru; Bruce Dern as Francis Matthias, author of the book “Satan’s Last Stand – The Truth About The Salem Witch Trials”; Torsten Voges as Count Gorgann, lead singer of the Norwegian death metal band Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent; Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman “Whitey” Salvador, one third of “The Big H Team” at WIQZ – Salem’s Rock Radio; Meg Foster as Margaret Morgan, the leader of a secret coven of witches in Salem; Ernest Thomas, who will play Chip “Freakshow” McDonald, the station manager at Salem’s #1 rock station; and Sheri Moon Zombie.
Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli of Haunted Pictures are producing as well as Zombie regulars Andy Gould and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station and, together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster), forms part of the “Big H Radio Team”.
A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, “a gift from the Lords”. She assumes it’s a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords’ record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later Whitey plays the Lords’ record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they’re expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they’re out for BLOOD.
