We recently shared a Twitter account featuring humorous videos of Michael Myers’ life during quarantine (link below). Today, however, the REAL Michael Myers is sending his good wishes to Halloween fans.
Nick Castle is one of the actors who portrayed Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s original Halloween, released in 1978. He also plays Michael Myers in the 2018 reboot (along with James Jude Courtney); we’ll be seeing more of him in Halloween Kills this Fall and in Halloween Ends in 2021.
Our friends at HalloweenMovies.com caught up with Castle recently. “The Shape” actor drops some details about the upcoming Halloween flicks, along with his warmest regards.
“To all the Halloween fans out there, here’s a big ‘hello’ from your old pal, the OG Shape. As you can see, I’m hunkering down like the rest of you, ‘mask on mask,’ riding out the pandemic with you, and hoping with a little luck we’ll all be healthy and virus-free this October to watch Michael do his thing in Halloween Kills. I did the post-production (voice-over) breathing for all of the Shape scenes right before the shutdown took place, and let me tell you, there is no lack of thrills in this new epic! Meanwhile, stay safe! Love to all.”
Check out the trailer and synopsis for 2018’s Halloween below.
It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. — but this time, she’s ready for him.
