Rob Zombie announced today via his official Facebook that Torsten Voges – best known for his turns in Joel Schumacher’s 8MM and the cult classic Coen Brother’s film The Big Lebowski – has joined the cast of The Lords of Salem, which begins lensing this fall from the producing team behind Insidious and Paranormal Activity.
Voges will play “Count Gorgann”, the lead singer of the Norwegian death metal band Leviathan the Fleeing Serpent.
Jeff Phillips was recently cast as Herman “Whitey” Salvador, one third of “The Big H Team” at WIQZ – Salem’s Rock Radio. Meg Foster was also cast as “Margaret Morgan”, the leader of a secret coven of witches in Salem. Ernest Thomas will play Chip “Freakshow” McDonald, the station manager at Salem’s #1 rock station.
“The story is about a local DJ who mistakenly unleashes a hellish curse on the town. 300 years earlier on the very streets of Salem that the townspeople walk on today, innocent folks were rounded up from their homes, convicted of being witches and sentenced to death. The Lords of Salem ran the town with an iron fist, but four witches who were tortured and killed in secrecy vowed that one day they would be back for revenge.”
