More casting news for Rob Zombie’s new film 31 continues to roll in. Today he announced that Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs (Otis, Alien Nation) has joined the cast as Panda Thomas.
From Zombie’s Facebook page:
Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs has joined the cast of 31 as Panda Thomas the manager of a traveling roadshow known as “The Venus Lux Happy Time Fun Show”. Unfortunately the fun stops as soon as he enters Murder World.
Lawrence is best know as 70’s icon Freddy “Boom Boom” Washington from Welcome Back, Kotter and such classic films as Cooley High and Claudine.
I used to be a big Welcome Back, Kotter fan when Nick at Nite would air reruns all the time. Hilton-Jacobs has a super strong presence so it’ll be interesting to see how he uses that in a Rob Zombie film!
Thank you Joe for the tip!
“31 follows five carnival workers who are kidnapped the night before Halloween and held hostage in a large secret compound known as Murder World.
Once there, they have 12 hours to survive a terrifying game called 31 in which ‘The Heads’- murderous maniacs dressed as clowns – are released to hunt them down and kill them.”
