All the people being suggested are too old! Find someone around 20 years old.

People aren't talking about the young male lead. They're talking about the character played by Roddy McDowell in the original, who was an old, has-been horror movie actor.

Maybe Robert Englund or Christopher Lee?
I assumed Termis was making a joke about Hollywood's "youth obsession".

Oops! I missed that! (I plead jet lag.)

The tricky part of updating FRIGHT NIGHT is going to be the late-night horror movie host thing, which isn't really part of pop culture anymore. Maybe Peter Vincent is working the convention circuit these days, selling his autograph to horror fans like Charlie?
