VAs at the Movies: H2 – Halloween 2

The August 28th theatrical release of the Halloween 2 remake (directed by Rob Zombie) will include several Hollywood stars who have voiced animated characters:

Malcolm McDowell voices a recurring character on Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse and was the voice of Metallo on Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League.

Brad Dourif was voice of Chucky from the horror franchise of the same name.

Danielle Harris voiced lead characters in Father of the Pride and The Wild Thornberrys.

Chris Hardwick is the voice of Otis the Cow on Nickelodeon’s popular series Back at the Barnyard, and was the voice of Green Arrow on The Batman.

Bill Fagerbakke is the voice of Patrick Star on SpongeBob Squarepants, and has performed in many other animated series such as Transformers Animated and Gargoyles.

Weird Al Yankovic will make a cameo in the movie, as was just announced recently on FEARnet.com. In addition to his long career as a musical comedian, Weird Al has also done guest voices on Transformers Animated, Robot Chicken, The Simpsons, Eek! The Cat, Grim and Evil, The Brak Show, and others that I won’t list for fear of sounding like an obsessive fanboy.

And three other cast members are also providing voices for Rob Zombie’s upcoming animated film, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto: Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, and Daniel Roebuck.

I might possibly appear in the film as well since I spent a chilly night on set as a background extra (much of the movie filmed around the Atlanta, GA area). If you spot a pasty white dude with a scruffy beard wearing a brown cap and pretending to eat an apple for a scene early in the film where Dr. Loomis (McDowell) is being carried out of a house on a stretcher, it’s me.

Also had the chance to see McDowell and Fagerbakke up close as they exited a scene after it wrapped. McDowell even said hello to me and asked with a smile how I was enjoying “the fine weather.” I was freezing my tushie off, but I just I laughed and nodded at him. Such a nice guy to speak to a lowly extra.
