Nick Castle

When asked if he ever thought that he would be putting the Michael Myers back on:

Well absolutely not. No. I didn’t even know this was a movie until probably five months ago or something like that, so not really. I’m not doing any movies in general, but since I do this kind of work (conventions), it was interesting to keep abreast of what the franchise is up to.

Castle continues: “And I was very curious to see what Danny McBride’s position would be in this, because I do really love him as a comic voice.
