Original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle is concerned his cameo in “Halloween Kills” will be cut from the final version of the movie.
Castle only played The Shape in John Carpenter’s original “Halloween” with the filmmakers behind the sequels choosing to replace him, and Castle focusing on his directing career.
The actor did return for David Gordon Green’s 2018 Halloween reboot. Fans were excited to hear that Castle was returning for the film, but the actor did only have a brief cameo role in Halloween, with James Jude Courtney playing Michael for the majority of the film. The only time Castle appears on screen is when Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) sees Michael for the first time. His appearance as the Boogeyman was a fun homage to the original Halloween, but Halloween Kills might not provide fans with another fun Easter egg.
When being interviewed on The Thing With Two Heads, Castle discussed his involvement with Halloween Kills. When asked about his cameo in the film, Castle revealed that he is only in one scene, but it’s a scene that could end up on the cutting room floor. Castle’s full response can be read below:
“There was only one scene, I can’t tell what it is, I won’t say what it is, but we’ll see, it’s an interesting one. Because it’s definitely something I can imagine being cut out, which I hope is not gonna happen.”
“Halloween Kills” is in theaters on October 15, 2021.
