With Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell continuing to reveal its cast, Zombie has taken to social media to confirm that Sean Whalen has joined the picture. Whalen, of course, is best known to genre fans for playing Roach in Wes Craven’s brilliant The People Under the Stairs, not to mention roles in the likes of Zombie’s Halloween II and Adam Green’s Hatchet II.
Already on board for 3 from Hell are the returning Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, Danny Trejo, and Daniel Roebuck, with new additions in the shape of Austin Stoker, Dee Wallace, Dot-Marie Jones, Tom Papa, Jeff Daniels Phillips, David Ury, Kevin Jackson, Richard Riehle, and Clint Howard.
Zombie, Moseley, and Haig famously played Baby, Otis, and Captain Spaulding in The House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects, while Trejo appeared as Rondo in The Devil’s Rejects and Roebuck had the small role of TV host Morris Green in that same film. Those four aren’t the only ones to have previous with Rob Zombie, however, with Tom Papa having voiced El Superbeasto in the animated The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, Jeff Daniel Phillips having played Seymour Coffins in Halloween 2, David Ury and Pancho Moler portraying Schizo-Head and Sick-Head, respectively, in 2016’s 31, Kevin Jackson being one of the victims in 31, and Richard Riehle having had a role in Halloween II. Elsewhere, we know that Clint Howard’s role will be that of a new clown dubbed Mr Baggy Britches.
3 from Hell is currently shooting, with an official release date to be confirmed a little later down the line. As ever, expect more on the return of the Firefly family as we get it.
