This Friday, January 4th, Texas Chainsaw 3D is set to tear apart audiences everywhere courtesy of Lionsgate. The direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's original 1974 classic reunites many franchise vets and newcomers, including the newest chainsaw-wielding maniac of cinema, Dan Yeager.
During a recent press day, Dread Central sat down with Yeager to discuss his approach to Leatherface for Texas Chainsaw 3D and also heard more from the actor about the challenges of bringing a character to life while being stuck behind a mask. Yeager also discussed how this sequel celebrates and pays tribute to Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre more so than any of the other sequels and how he landed the iconic role.
Read on for our exclusive interview with Yeager below, and look for more on Texas Chainsaw 3 all week!
