"Jackie is not big, and I think that Jackie's size is gonna really work [...] One of the metaphors [...] I've used for Freddy is a little rabid dog that just bites your ankle and holds on. [...] And I think Jackie brings that, with his own physicality, to the role, without ever having to work it a little bit."
— Robert Englund on Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger.
Robert Englund's own words on Jackie Earle Haley playing Freddy Krueger. If Robert's OK with it, you should be too. There's been a lot of negative emotions about Haley being Freddy. What's the big deal? I think Haley did a great job. I'll have to admit though, I do miss "Welcome to prime time bitch!" My point is; stop complaining about the new Freddy, OK?
