David Gordon Inexperienced’s Halloween Kills is now enjoying in theatres and streaming on Peacock and has been doing pretty damn well from the appears to be like of issues. These of you will have watched Halloween Kills may need been shocked to have seen Bob Odenkirk’s title within the credit, significantly because it didn’t seem to be the actor was within the movie in any respect… however he was, form of.
Fortunately, CinemaBlend was in a position to resolve the thriller. In John Carpenter’s unique Halloween film, one among Michael Myers’ victims was Bob Simms, a young person who was memorably pinned to a door by Myers with a butcher knife. David Gordon Inexperienced wished to pay tribute to all of Myers’ victims in Halloween Kills, however wasn’t in a position to observe down the unique actor so as to get the picture rights… and that’s the place Bob Odenkirk got here in.
Within the unique Carpenter movie, the Bob character, I wished to have acknowledgement of all of the deaths from the earlier movie, however we couldn’t observe [the actor] down or get the rights. One way or the other we couldn’t clear a picture of Bob for our tv information broadcast. And so I used to be pissed off by that as a result of I wished to acknowledge Bob’s loss of life, however we couldn’t get footage of Bob. So I Googled ‘Bob Seventies Excessive Faculty,’ and a photograph of Bob Odenkirk popped up that regarded identical to Bob! So I believed, ‘He’s most likely simpler to seek out; let’s go get him!’
After contacting Bob Odenkirk and getting the okay, the actor can now rely himself as a part of the Halloween franchise, albeit within the type of a yearbook picture from many years in the past. Bob Simms was initially performed by John Michael Graham, however past an uncredited look as a backup dancer in Grease, Halloween is his solely function, so it’s not laborious to see why the manufacturing had issue monitoring him down.
