Kevin Bacon wants to play the role of Freddy Krueger

Last summer Robert Englund stated that he would like to see Kevin Bacon take on the role of the legendary Freddy Krueger, many thought it was just said as a silly joke.

Englund said last summer: “He’s not a kid anymore either but the rumor I’ve heard that I like is Kevin Bacon. Kevin loves horror. He’s a real actor. He’s a character actor. Kevin was great in Tremors. Kevin was great in Stir of Echoes. And I’ve heard this rumor. We need someone like that to take it on. And re-do it, exploiting all of the new technology.”

Today Bacon told Bloody Disgusting that he would like to take on this role.

Bacon says: “Sure. It would take a lot of makeup.”
