You can go ahead and add Daniel Roebuck’s name to the list of actors now attached to the currently shooting 3 From Hell.
Director Rob Zombie took to Instagram earlier this week – as he so often does – to confirm that Roebuck, best known for his work across Halloween 2 and 31 (which were also helmed by Zombie), among others, has officially climbed aboard. He’ll be reprising his role from The Devil’s Rejects, of course, playing Morris Green, “Ruggsville’s favorite TV personality.”
He’ll be rubbing shoulders with a solid cast, too, which includes the likes of Sid Haig, Austin Stoker (Assault on Precinct 13), Bill Moseley, Sheri Moon Zombie, Dee Wallace and, as of a few days ago, Jeff Daniel Phillips, another regular Zombie collaborator who’s been seen in The Lords of Salem and 31.
Meanwhile, the announcement of Roebuck came bearing the following caption: “Casting news: Dan Roebuck returns as Morris Green. Ruggsville’s favorite TV personality. #robzombie #3fromhell #danroebuck”
After House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects – two cult favorites amongst horror fans – Rob Zombie is now ready to close out his trilogy with 3 From Hell. It’ll bring about the return of Captain Spaulding, Otis Driftwood and Vera-Ellen “Baby” Firefly, too, who were last seen being killed in a tense police shootout back in the aforementioned 2005 movie. How exactly they’re still alive then is up for debate – though we have our theories – but we couldn’t be more excited to catch back up with the gang, not least because Rob Zombie recently teased some “insanity” from the set.
Further details on 3 From Hell and its expected release window will likely surface over the coming weeks, so be sure to stay tuned to We Got This Covered for more.
