Ken Foree Joins The Big H Radio Team in Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem
We're not sure how much bigger the cast for Rob Zombie's upcoming The Lords of Salem can get, but we're definitely happy about his latest casting choice: Ken Foree has just signed on as part of The Big H Radio Team, joining all the other horror icons who've already been announced. Here are the details from Zombie's Facebook page...
Our old buddy KEN FOREE has jumped on a ghost train bound for Salem, MA as HERMAN JACKSON, one third of The Big H Radio Team. The #1 show in Salem.
Ken has been in many films horror fans love including Dawn Of The Dead, From Beyond, Knightriders, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3, The Devil's Rejects, Halloween and The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto. Most recently Ken appeared in the film Water For Elephants.
Ken has popped up on the small screen numerous times on shows such as Family Matters, Kojak, Cheers, Dallas and General Hospital.
Ken joins the previously announced Richard Lynch as the film's protagonist, "Reverend John Hawthorne"; Lisa Marie, who plays "Priscilla Reed", a woman who gives her all to support "the cause of the coven"; Billy Drago as "Judge Samuel Mather," a key player in the history of the Lords; 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"; Maria Conchita Alonso as Francis' wife, Alice Matthias; 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. Zombie's guitarist John 5 is set to handle the score.
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.
