News Kevin Bacon as Freddy Krueger? Fan Asks a Direct Question Published 4 years ago on August 17, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Does Kevin Bacon really want to take on the iconic horror villain? I know the last Nightmare On Elm Street film was a horrible viewing experience, unwatchable to most. I really couldn’t face watching it without Robert Englund in the role as Freddy Krueger, just no way. Today, we have another person that might be interested in the franchise. Just because of one comment the internet blows up. A fan tweeted out a message directed at Kevin Bacon about him possibly playing Freddy Krueger, I just can’t really take Bettie Toxic’s comment seriously. Come on, it’s just such a strange thought to envision Bacon in the Freddy Kruger make-up and costume isn’t it? I can’t really imagine Bacon doing a Freddy Kruger voice, can you? You can check out what was tweeted and Kevin Bacon’s reply below! Bettie Toxic Tweeted: “If a nightmare on elm street gets rebooted again can we please somehow get @kevinbacon as Freddy? I think he’d be fantastic.” Kevin Bacon’s Reply: “I like the way you think Bettie https://twitter.com/bettietoxic/status/764321216555421696“ What do you think about this? I just can’t see anything happening with the franchise and Bacon.
