Remember that guy who played Kelly Leak in ‘Bad News Bears?’ He’s back. Jackie Earle Haley landed the role of Freddy Krueger in the remake of Wes Craven’s 1984 film. Haley was pretty much off the acting grid from 1993 until 2006, before returning to the biz to appear in some successful films. I have a feeling that this will solidify his return as an industry contender. Though I admittedly despise remakes – and Freddy Krueger.
