Rob Zombie has announced that Jeff Daniel Phillips will appear in 3 From Hell, his upcoming sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. While Phillips is a new addition to this particular series of films, he has appeared in three of Mr. Zombie’s other movies: Halloween 2, Lords of Salem, and 31. No information has been given about the character he’ll play, but based on the look of the included image, we can only guess he’ll be some kind of lawman alongside Austin Stoker.
This is the sixth 3 From Hell cast member that Mr. Zombie has announced so far. The initial announcement included returning lead cast members Sheri Moon Zombie and Bill Moseley, quickly followed up by a confirmation that Sid Haig would also be returning. Within the last week, we’ve learned that Austin Stoker and Dee Wallace would joining the cast as a new characters.
