Is There a Nightmare on Jackie Earle Haley’s Street?

While the news that Lindsay Lohan would be starring in the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot was sadly proven to be false, there are some rumors circulating that Jackie Earle Haley (of Watchmen and Bad News Bears fame) is considering taking on the iconic role of Freddy Krueger. Between this rumor and his utterly convincing performance in Little Children, he'll only need to get a Gary Glitter biopic green-lit in order to complete a child molester trifecta. [Movies Blog/MTV]
