Jamie Lee Curtis surprised everyone by announcing that she's returning to the Halloween franchise, which launched her career into superstardom, but did you know that she almost didn't get the part? Director John Carpenter originally wanted Anne Lockhart, the daughter of Lassie actress June Lockhart, to play the role of Laurie Strode.
