No one has been confirmed for the part yet.

But I heard rumors, Jackie Earle Haley is being conderd.

I think he can pull it off, he has a very unique look, and good acting chops to boot.

If Watchmen is the success everyone believes it will be.

He may just land the part.

He's the best rumor I've heard so far.

Better than the Billy Bob Thorton rumor.

He would be terrible in my opinion.

But I'm all for Jackie Earle Haley.

Bisco, you're looking like my grandpa!

Did you remember this guy?

But I have to agreed, Englund face and way to talk and act is what makes Freddy funny and the best. I'm not sure of it could work with something else. But, hey! There's a damn date, althought is a bit far.... Good or bad, time will tell....
