* TypeCasting: Robert Englund played Freddy in all of the original films and ''Freddy vs. Jason''. Apart from all the makeup it requires, he does enjoy the role. The whole "typecasting" thing was lovingly mocked on ''Series/MADtv'' early in that show's run, when Englund did a guest spot for a HalloweenEpisode. During his appearance, everyone kept describing Englund, as his big claim to fame, his other famous genre role of "Willie", the comic relief alien from the original ''Series/{{V}}'' mini-series. Englund responds quite angrily, pointing out to each cast member who calls him "Willie", that he played Freddy Krueger in the ''Nightmare on Elm Street'' films. But everyone keeps referring to him as "The guy who played Willie on ''V''" instead of "the ''Nightmare On Elm Street'' guy", much to his dismay and anger.
