There is no one who knows the hatred and distain of horror fans better than I do. I also have learned a great deal from the comments I read, especially here at BD. The fans here are very insightful and passionate and I find it very helpful to read the feedback.
It should come as no surprise then that Jackie Earle Haley is playing Freddy Krueger. He was the only person we ever considered for the role. He was BD's first choice and there were many times during the negotiation that I came here and just looked at the fans casting ideas and realized that he was ONLY person who could play the role. We can't make all the fans happy, but those of you who are open to a new version of the Nightmare story have to be as excited as we are. Come on people, an Academy Award Nominated actor is playing Krueger. This was no small accomplishment, but everyone involved wanted it to happen.
