It's been a busy week for casting on Rob Zombie's upcoming 31, with the announcements that E.G. Daily and Lawrence Hilton Jacobs had signed on for the wicked fun earlier this week, and today we've got another bit of casting news to share with you as Zombie film regular Daniel Roebuck (THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, THE HAUNTED WORLD OF EL SUPERBEASTO) has jumped onboard the cast of 31.
Zombie shared this news via his Facebook page, sharing that Roebuck's character is named Pastor Victor and that he is "an unfortunate participant in last year's game of 31". He joins the previously announced Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as “Panda Thomas,” the manager of a traveling roadshow known as “The Venus Lux Happy Time Fun Show,” E.G. Daily as the character “Sex-Head,” and Torsten Voges as “Death-Head.”
“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.”
Here's hoping we see some other Rob Zombie film regulars pop up in 31 as well. Maybe Sid Haig, Duane Whitaker, or Bill Moseley will get a call soon.
More on 31 as we hear it.
