Another cast member for Zombie's Halloween


Here’s yet another HALLOWEEN casting tidbit that came down the pipeline this afternoon via Rob Zombies Myspace blog. The rocker/filmmaker now reveals that Pat Skipper has joined the cast. You may not recognize the name but he has had bit parts in a few genre films likeHELLRAISER: BLOODLINE, PREDATOR 2, ED GEIN, DEMONSTONE and John Carpenter’s MEMOIRS OF AN INVISIBLE MAN.

He is joining Malcolm McDowell as Dr. Loomis and Tyler Mane as the adult Michael Meyers, and Pat is playing Mason Strode—father of Laurie (who may be played by Danielle Harris). With some pretty good movies under his belt and along with a pretty extensive history on television, including episodic turns in the new NIGHT STALKER, TREMORS: THE SERIES and four episodes of THE X FILES, the latter as Bill Scully Jr., Dana Scully’s older brother he is a welcome addition to the already great cast for what look to be one of the better remakes to come out in recent history. I still have a problem thinking of anyone else as Dr. Loomis other than Donald Pleasence, RIP heir Dr.
