New ‘Halloween’ Michael Myers Actor James Jude Courtney Talks Nick Castle Passing the Torch



Halloween II Michael Myers

American actor and stunt performer James Jude Courtney, our new Michael Myers actor in director David Gordon Green‘s upcoming Halloween sequel, had a lot to say about donning the iconic mask and coveralls in an interview with the folks over at HalloweenDailyNews.


While talking with the site, Courtney reveled how original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle passed the torch to him on the set of the new Halloween film.

David was also really sensitive and generous when he said, ‘We’re inviting Nick Castle to come back to do a little work. Do you have a problem with that, because you’re the Michael Myers now?’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God. Are you kidding? What an honor it would be, first of all to meet the guy, but secondly to work with him. How good does that get?

So we started work, and I can’t remember if it was the second or third week that Nick came in and did kind of a cameo. He did a couple of scenes, and I’m in the scenes with him, which is really beautiful. He and I were hoping that would happen, because he even said, ‘This is the passing of the torch.’
