The Haloween sequel, Haloween Kills, starring Jamie Lee Curtis is now also starring Anthony Michael Hall. The actor, who has been seen in everything from The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink to The Dark Knight Rises and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, is set to play the grown-up version of Tommy Doyle.
The character of Tommy Doyle was first introduced in the original Halloween movie when he was one of the kids Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode was babysitting. The character was revisited again in 1995 with Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.
Hall will play Tommy Doyle, a character who first appeared in John Carpenter‘s original Halloween movie as one of the young kids Laurie Strode (Curtis) was babysitting the night that Michael Myers invaded her world. Paul Rudd played Tommy Doyle in 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, which saw the character teaming up with Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) to bring down Myers. In that chapter of the franchise, he was portrayed by a young Paul Rudd.
Halloween Kills is the second part of a new trilogy for the franchise that will also include Halloween Ends. The two movies are filming back-to-back-, with Halloween Kills hitting theaters next October and Halloween Ends premiering on October 15, 2021.
