â€œTerminator : The Sarah Connor Chroniclesâ€ star Thomas Dekker â€“ who, in my opinion, makes for one ace John Connor (hopefully Fox realize that, and renew the series for a third season) â€“ is going from battling Cromartie to Krueger.
According to Shock Til You Drop, the spiky-haired tweenager has joined the cast of New Lineâ€™s â€œA Nightmare on Elm Streetâ€ redo â€“ and mummy wonâ€™t be around to help him out this time.
Dekker joins the already cast Jackie Earle Haley, who is playing pointy-fingered Fred Krueger, and Kyle Gallner, whose been cast as the male lead, Quentin.
Dekker, who also appears in the upcoming remake of â€œFameâ€, has been cast as Jesse, a jock on the swim team. No doubt director Samuel Bayer will have Dekker, um, fingered by Freddy in the pool.
