Jackie Earle Haley has quickly established a niche for himself as an expert at playing violent, mentally unhinged characters with gravelly voices and faces obscured by masks or disfigurements. Most recently, he can be seen plying his unique specialty in Martin Scorsese‘s thriller Shutter Island. Next up, he plays the iconic deep-fried, sweater-clad tormentor of vapid, attractive teenagers, Freddy Krueger, in the much-anticipated horror remake A Nightmare on Elm Street. Check out the latest trailer from the film, released this week:
A Nightmare on Elm Street opens April 30, 2010.
