Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I'd always avoided stuff like "Where are they now?" or "Whatever happened to?". Just "No thanks, thanks for calling." You tell me, have you ever seen a "Whatever happened to" where they seemed anything but pathetic? I could do that or just disappear. See more »


In 1984, his friend Johnny Depp accompanied him to the auditions for A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Instead of being chosen for a role, it was Depp who was spotted by director Wes Craven, who asked him if he would like to read for a role. However, Haley would go on to play Freddy Krueger in the remake 26 years later (A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)). See more »
