And Englund's probably too old by now.
Thornton isn't much younger - he's 53.

An intrusion warning alerts me through Norton if something is trying to access my system from a remote location.

I'm warning you now to try to get rid of Norton as fast as you can. it took my sister and I months to get rid of that trash and it's still partly on the computer.
I'm happy with what I have thanks.

How do you figure that? He can't be seen under the makeup. It's not like he's not up to it physically. So what's the issue?
Besides, 61 isn't old. Look at Stallone and Ford.

Hey, in music "How Do I Live Without You" had versions by Tricia Yearwood and LeAnn Rimes come out at the exact same time.

Maybe it's only a matter of time before moviegoers can decide if they want to see "John Grisham's The Partner," starring Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly and directed by Ridley Scott; or "John Grisham's The Partner," starring Ashton Kutcher, Heidi Montag and directed by Brett Ratner.

A guy on the radio said that this is the first instance of the actor being uglier than the character he's playing.

^ We do have to give him credit for one thing: he was married to Angelina Jolie.

They are presumably going to want to make more though and starting the franchise with a 61 year old actor is not a good idea. They made Freddie Movies for 20+ years, there's every chance Englund is not gonna be able to do it at 81.

Re: Billy Bob Thornton cast as Freddy Kreuger?

^ You also have to factor in that a lot of actors/actresses from the 80s/90s era are retiring from acting work. I read that that's one of the reasons Rick Moranis isn't returning for the Ghostbusters game.

Here's another one. Candyman, which is all of 16 years old right now, is being eyed for a remake.

Wasn't Freddy only in his late twenties or so when he was burned by the townspeople? I guess it doesn't matter if it's a reboot though.

There's another rumor that Candyman will be white because they don't want to offend any blacks.
