What makes someone successful at what they do? Is it something you’re born with? Hard work? Experience? Let’s just say our next guest, Brendan Fletcher, is no newbie to the world of acting and has the parts to prove it. Acting since he was 13, Brendan got his first big role in the television movie, Little Criminals in the mid 90’s. Now at just 36, his discography is almost overwhelming. Brendan has appeared in productions such as:
Goosebumps (1996), Airbud (‘97), The Crow: Stairway to Heaven (‘98), Freddy vs. Jason (2003) Masters of Horror (TV series, 2006), RV (2006), Terry Gilliam’s Tideland (2006), The Pacific (2010), Bates Motel (TV series, 2014) Leprechaun: Origins (2014) , R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour (TV, 2014), The Revenant (2015), Cardinal (TV series, 2017), iZombie (2017), Braven (2018), two of the Ginger Snaps and three Rampage installments and many other great movies and TV shows.
In this podcast episode we talk Philly cheesesteaks, Stephen King and vaping — but mostly we take a look back at Brendan’s incredible career in horror films over the years and talk about what it takes to make a memorable scary movie. As of today Brendan is the last victim to be killed by Robert England’s Freddy Krueger character in the Nightmare On Elm Street franchise. Hoping it stays that way, buddy!
Brendan Fletcher is promoting his new movie, Distorted, coming out this Friday, June 22nd, in select theaters. It also stars John Cusack and Christina Ricci. The film is a psychological thriller/drama.
