Jackie Earle Haley moves on from being an inkblots-masked hero in "Watchmen" to portraying an iconic killer in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake. Variety has reported that the Academy Award-nominated actor will take on the villainous role of Freddy Krueger, who was originally made famous by Robert Englund.

"Looking at his performance in 'Watchmen,' here's a guy playing a character under a mask yet you feel tremendous empathy for him," director Samuel Bayer said of what Haley can contribute to the movie. "And in Nightmare, he is going to be under prosthetic make-up. You have to feel something for the character. The greatest villains are multi-dimensional and I think he will bring that to the character."
