Playing bitter and twisted movie ghoul FREDDY KRUEGER in the new A Nightmare On Elm Street film came easy to WATCHMEN star Jackie Earle Haley - because the hours he spent in make-up turned him into a bad-tempered villain.
Haley will take on the character made famous by actor Robert Englund in Samuel Bayer's upcoming horror thriller, and he admits he didn't have to dig too deep to find his inner Freddy.
He says, "Becoming that character is such an arduous process - three-and-a-half hours of make-up, incredibly cumbersome arms and claws and knives.
"I take all those uncomfortable feelings and give them to Freddy."
