One of the biggest surprises during the filming of Rob Zombie‘s Three From Hell was the introduction of a new clown, “Mr. Baggy Britches”, who will be played by Clint Howard (Halloween, The Lords of Salem and even El Superbeasto). While editing his House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects sequel, which also boasts the return of Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), Zombie revealed our first ever look at Mr. Baggy Britches in his full clown makeup. This looks like a fun extension of Irwin Keyes‘ appearance in House of 1,000 Corpses, where he was seen taking down a duo of local robbers alongside Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig).
In fact, Bloody Disgusting has it on good authority that Jeff Daniel Phillips (Uncle Seymour Coffins in Zombie’s Halloween 2) is also going to be playing a clown – one that’s said to become a franchise staple. More soon.
