Sometimes you got to do what you got to do. Many actors we know and love today were once a part of some iconic Halloween movies. Here they are.
Sebastian Stan – The Covenant
That’s right folks. We start off the list with our very won Winter Soldier of the MCU. Before he made his name in Marvel movies, Sebastian Stan played the role of the antagonist in The Covenant. The story is about four young boys from Spencer Academy blessed with magical powers. Stan plays Chase, who wants to kill the three and drain their powers.
Johnny Depp – A Nightmare On Elm Street
It was 1984 and Wes Craven decided to give us one of the best horror movies ever made – A Nightmare On Elm Street. This iconic slasher franchise was also the debut movie of Johnny Depp. Depp is now a global sensation now known for his role as Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. But in this horror film, he starred as the pretty boy Glen Lantz. Lantz was one of the four kids who was stalked and killed by Freddy Kreuger.
Bradley Cooper – The Midnight Meat Train
The Hangover actor is not exactly known for making a mark in the horror genre. But he sure did try in 2008 with The Midnight Meat Train. Cooper plays the role of a struggling journalist who tries to find out the whereabouts of an infamous serial killer known as the ‘Subway Butcher’.
Rainn Wilson – House of 1000 Corpses
The Office star has tried to dabble in many genres. He has acted in James Gunn’s Super, a superhero movie. He has also been a part of House Of 1000 Corpses. This B-Movie tells the story of a group of creative artists who are kidnapped and tortured by a family of psychopaths. Rainn’s character Bill dies in a pretty morbid fashion.

Ty Burrell – Dawn Of The Dead
