Bunch of Casting Done For Hatchet 2Goon
We have been following the news for Adam Green's Hatchet 2 and today there has been several huge actors added to the cast. STYD has learned that Danielle Harris, Tony Todd (Candyman), AJ Bowen (The Signal), Tom Holland (Director Fright Night), Clare Grant, R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III), Kathryn Fiore and Kane Hodder as Victor Crowley are all on board.
AJ Bowen joins the cast as a hunter named Layton who is part of a group that Reverend Zombie (Tony Todd) hires to go into the swamp to kill Victor Crowley. Tom Holland, who will play Marybeth's (Danielle Harris) Uncle Bob, the brother of Robert Englund's character from the first film and one of the lead roles of Hatchet 2. Clare Grant will play a character named Avery.
Green told the site that this time around "this one will not have as much humor as the first Hatchet. We were trying to get you to relate with all the characters in Part One and the quickest way to do that with anything is through comedy. But if you look at the first Hatchet film, it gradually gets darker and darker as it goes along so that by the end of it, it’s not quite as funny anymore. This one will pick up where the last one left off and will continue in that dark direction. Obviously the tone of the Hatchet world is all about good old fashioned slasher fun and the sense of humor that the first Hatchet film had was one of the things that endeared this huge fan base to it, so there will still be some laughs. But overall, things are gonna get a lot more intense across the board."
