Billy Bob Thornton? Not much work to do in the make-up department.

He lives down the street from my friend. Apparently, he's incredibly nice and spend alot of time working on his garden. I would love to see him pruning his roses with the Freddy Krueger glove! LOL

TMZ IS MY HERO!!    

There is nobody better than Robert Englund when it comes to appearing as Freddie Krueger in the Nightmare on Elmstreet movies. He is just on another level altogether when it comes to Freddie Krueger.

I eagerly await another Freddie vs. Jason movie!

One, two, Freddy's coming for you. Three, four, better lock your doors. Five, six, grab your crucifix. Seven, eight, better stay up late. Nine, ten, never sleep again. And I made up this one...Eleven, twelve, or he'll take your soul to hell.

I've been a fan of this dude since I was a kid, I absolutely love the "Nightmare on ELm Street" movies! I spoke to him on the phone a few years ago while he was on the radio promoting "Freddy vs. Jason" and he was a very gracious and cool guy. Sad to hear they're moving froward with the series (or re-booting it, Lord knows why) without the REAL Freddy K.

Love him, love him, love him. Robert Englund is an amazing actor! Not only does he bring Freddy alive, but he has also been in numeruous other movies that rock. They need to make another Freddy vs. Jason vs. Michael Meyers or something similar to that. He looks great for 61 years young. You rock, Robert!

The best! And he's a really nice guy. I'm disappointed that they would even consider making a nightmare on elm street without Robert- Lame! Nobody will be able to replace how he moves his body and stances. Just won't work.
