Actor Michael O’Leary has reportedly been cast in Halloween Ends, as the character of Dr. Mathis.
O’Leary tweeted about the news, stating he was joining ‘Cave Dwellers’ (the working title for Halloween Ends), directed by David Gordon Green.
But how will the character of Mathis fit into the lore of Gordan Green’s trilogy closer?
Could Mathis be featured in more flashbacks, potentially to Smith’s Grove or the trial of Michael Myers in the aftermath of 1978?
O’Leary’s career most recently has been focused in television roles on Law & Order: Organized Crime, FBI, The Bay and Guiding Light.
But for slasher aficionados he also featured in the cult slasher Fatal Games, from 1984, also starring Sean Masterson and Sally Kirkland.
O’Leary joins confirmed cast members for Halloween Ends, Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, James Jude Courtney and Kyle Richards.
Halloween Ends starts filming this week in Savannah, Georgia; with a projected release date of 16 October 2022.
