Actor Robert Englund has ruled himself out of the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street remake--because he's "too old."

The 58-year-old played movie ghoul Freddie Krueger in the 1984 Wes Craven original and its sequels, but has not been asked to reprise his role in the big-screen comeback.

He says, "I'm too old for this new version; otherwise, it would be Freddie vs. Viagra." 

Transformers director Michael Bay is one of the big names behind the planned New Line movies, based on the franchise created by horror mastermind Craven.
