Hey guys, Jana here,

jackie-earle-haley

Jackie Earle Haley is a name you may not know off the top of your head, but I guarantee you’ll recognize his face. He’s been everywhere and he’s signing on to be more places even now! He was in ‘The Bad News Bears‘, the 1976 version with a cranky Walter Matthau, he was in ‘Watchmen‘, he even became a new generation’s Freddy Krueger in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street‘.

Right now he’s signed on to play another villainous role, something he’s fantastic at, for Amazon’s pilot ‘The Tick‘. And that’s just not enough for Haley, he’s currently in negotiations to co-star in ‘The Dark Tower‘ opposite Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey.

The Tick‘ reboot, is being written and exec produced by original creator Ben Edlund and bringing back the characters we’ve learned to love and unfortunately have missed for so many years. The role for Haley  is The Terror, a super villain who is fairly powerful and leads the evil league as far as the comics go.

We’re getting ready to see Haley weekly in a Sony TV adaptation of the cult comic book ‘Preacher‘ on AMC where he will portray Odin Quincannon. The series begins on May 22.

When it comes to ‘The Dark Tower‘, he will play Sayre, a menacing human-like guy who is the leader and is the top dog in everything he does. Get ready to see some awesome from Haley in our cinematic future, small screen and Silver Screen.

Movie Quotes

Hitchhiker:
You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?
Ted Stroehmann:
Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the excercise video.
Hitchhiker:
Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7... Minute... Abs.
Ted Stroehmann:
Right. Yes. OK, all right. I see where you're going.
Hitchhiker:
Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin' there, there's 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?
Ted Stroehmann:
I would go for the 7.
Hitchhiker:
Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.
Ted Stroehmann:
You guarantee it? That's - how do you do that?
Hitchhiker:
If you're not happy with the first 7 minutes, we're gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That's it. That's our motto. That's where we're comin' from. That's from "A" to "B".
Ted Stroehmann:
That's right. That's - that's good. That's good. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with 6-Minute Abs. Then you're in trouble, huh?
[Hitchhiker convulses]
Hitchhiker:
No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody's comin' up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won't even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.
Ted Stroehmann:
That - good point.
Hitchhiker:
7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 doors. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
Ted Stroehmann:
Why?
Hitchhiker:
'Cause you're fuckin' fired!
