The horror genre is not my favorite. I think it’s fun, there’s a great place for it and I get a kick out of it, but some stuff I’m too old for. You can’t just take 10 guys and stick them in a cabin and off them one at a time – I’m not vested.
That transition from child to adult actor is so incredibly elusive. The roles that were coming to me as a young adult were not that great, but I was taking them anyway to pay the rent. And the more bad roles in bad movies I took, the less anybody wanted me for a good role in a good movie.
Robert Englund’s done an amazing job over the years playing Freddy. Everybody that’s a fan of ‘Nightmare’ loves Robert and you know so that’s a challenge when you’ve got to step in a big man’s shoes like that, so it’s scary but it’s also exciting.
I’ll give you my worst nightmare. I’m dreaming that I’m onstage, the curtain goes up, and I have no idea what my lines are or what’s going on. I think I should know, I kind of know, I remember rehearsing… and the audience is there waiting.
