When news broke of the new reboot of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" from New Line Cinema, fans immediately began making their choices for which actor should be the successor to the iconic role of Freddy Krueger made famous by the iconic Robert Englund. As Mr. Englund has now publicly stated that he won't be returning to play Freddy again, a new actor is needed to take on the role.
While many actors names have been suggested, the one actor who is constantly brought up as the only person who could ever don the hat, sweater and claw and do the role justice is Roberto Lombardi (http://www.imdb.me/robertolombardi). All around the world, fans have rallied behind Mr. Lombardi and already chosen him as their new Freddy Krueger. His acting talent is undeniable.
Let's examine the facts. Roberto Lombardi has already played Freddy Krueger in seven highly praised short films that have garnered glowing reviews from die hard fans and horror journalists all over the world. Roberto's turn in the Chris R. Notarile film "The Nightmare Ends on Halloween II" (See film here) has over 2 million views and his work on the short film series "Krueger: Tales from Elm Street" (also by Notarile) is unprecedented. (See Krueger Short Film Series here).
Roberto Lombardi and Chris R. Notarile have proven they not only understand "A Nightmare on Elm Street" as a franchise, but that they understand what fans want. What other actor and film maker have inspired other fan films and had books written that use material from their work?
We, as massive fans of the Elm Street franchise, through Krueger: Tales from Elm Street Official Facebook have already given massive support to Roberto Lombardi over the last few years and we now feel it's time for Warner Brothers and New Line Cinema to give the fans what they've already said they want. Cast Roberto Lombardi as Freddy Krueger!
