As Halloween Kills prepares for production, many fans of the franchise are wondering how many original Haddonfield residents will appear in this latest installment.
Blumhouse recently announced the return of characters Lindsey Wallace (played by original actress Kyle Richards), and Tommy Doyle (this time being played by Anthony Michael Hall) – with Jamie Leigh Curtis promising the return of “MANY original characters and their performers”.
Halloween Kills has cast another Haddonfield native now all grown up.
Robert Longstreet has been announced to play Lonnie Elam.
Lonnie Elam was a 6th-grader who bullied Tommy Doyle along with his friends Keith and Richie. On Halloween 1978, Lonnie and his friends were trying to make Tommy believe that the boogeyman was coming after him. He also knew of the story of the Myers house and told his classmates of this. Later that night, Lonnie was dared to enter the Myers house.
However, Sam Loomis happened to be hiding behind some bushes. He made a successful attempt to save the children from any danger by scaring them off.
Longstreet’s representatives confirmed to Bloody Disgusting the actor’s role and participation, noting he’s received the script is and preparing to shoot.
During Halloween (2018) blueprints were laid for Lonnie’s return given how Allyson’s boyfriend Cameron – played by Dylan Arnold – is his son.
With an October 16th, 2020, release date for Halloween Kills, keep your eyes peeled for more casting announcements.
