Some very interesting news coming in tonight on Tom Six’s third and final film in his Human Centipede trilogy, The Human Centipede 3; Final Sequence. EW are reporting that veteran actor Eric Roberts has joined the cast, and will possibly be part of the 500 person human centipede.
Roberts has given his mighty career of over 300 films a bit of a boost over the past few years by appearing in big blockbusters like The Dark Knight and The Expendables, but the busy actor has been appearing in more films than most of us have hot meals. Needless to say he can often choose films which are not exactly groundbreaking, but the choice to appear in one of the most controversial horror franchises of recent memory will do nothing to harm his career.
It is not known exactly what role Roberts will play, but the news of his casting comes with a few more names too. Man mountain and former WWF wrestler (as Zeus) Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister (Friday, The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown) has also joined the cast, although I am sure with his size and strength, he could just rip the centipede apart! Another name has been added, and this one I am sure actors would happily pay to be stitched up to. Please also welcome former porn actress, and former Charlie Sheen lover, Bree Olson to the cast. Olson will no doubt bring in a lot of interest, and while we can gaze at the image of Roberts above in fascination of just how this legend will be part of the horror flick, I have included an image of Olson below to give you an idea of the film at the other end of the spectrum, and I am sure all the men reading this will be especially pleased!
Robert LaSardo (Leon, Death Race) has also joined the cast which already see’s series villains Laurence R. Harvey and Dieter Laser returning, as well as director Tom Six himself also joining the cast. LaSardo will be playing an inmate, and so will Abraham Rubio and William Guirola (who were cast last week).
The most information we have thus far on the films plot and setting is that it will take place in a prison, and filming began in L.A last week. A casting call revealed by JoBlo.com last week had further details:
