WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The legendary Doug Bradley, who donned the pins and makeup of Pinhead for eight of the nine 'Hellraiser' films, has become a cult icon in the genre. Bradley was originally going to take the role of one of the movers in the first 'Hellraiser' film, but opted for the Lead Cenobite instead, and the rest, they say, is history. He is very close friends with Clive Barker, and the two have worked together on many projects over the years, including 'Night Breed' (1990), 'Salome & The Forbidden' (1998), and founding the 'Dog Company' progressive theatre group in London. Bradley is one of only five actors to play the same horror character on at least six consecutive occasions, joining Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). His most recent genre fare includes 'Pumpkinhead: Ashes To Ashes' (2006), 'Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines' (2012), 'Shame The Devil' (2013), and 'Death House' (2014). In addition to his on-screen work, Doug has performed narrations on several songs by English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, as well as contributing guest vocals to their 2008 album 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder', on all songs except 'Tragic Kingdom'. Forever a student of the acting craft, Doug is also the author of the book 'Sacred Masks: Behind The Mask Of The Horror Actor', which explores the history of masks in society and their applications in horror films. A regular on the convention circuit, Bradley is rumored to be working with Clive Barker on a re-make of the original 'Hellraiser' film. He lives in London with his wife Lynne, two children, and a cat.
Craig Sheffer, who played Detective Joseph Thorne in 'Inferno', portrayed the lead role of Aaron Boone/Cabal in Clive Barker;s 'Nightbreed' (1990). He is also known as author Norman Maclean in 'A River Runs Through It' (1992), and played Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Joe Kane in 'The Program' (1993). Among Sheffer's other feature work are 'Fire In The Sky' (1993), 'The Grave' (1996), 'Merlin: The Return' (2000), and 'Dracula II; Ascension' (2003). He also portrayed accused murderer Constant Bradley in the 1996 miniseries 'A Season In Purgatory' and nice-guy older brother Keith Scott on the CW Network series 'One Tree Hill' (2003) for three seasons until his character was killed off. Craig also recently took to the director's chair, having guided Ron Livingston and Rob Schneider in the 2008 dark comedy 'American Crude'. Most recently, Sheffer had a cameo appearance in the movie 'Stand Up Guys' (2012), with Al Pacino and Christopher Walken. He's also guest starred on several TV shows, including 'Criminal Minds' (2010), 'The Mentalist' (2012) and two episodes of 'CSI' (2012).
After 'Inferno', actor Nicholas Turturro (Tony Nenonen), already known and acclaimed for his role on 'NYPD Blue' (1997), continued his way in show business, both on the big screen and on television. His sister Aida was also well-known for portraying Janice Soprano on the HBO mob drama 'The Sopranos' from 1999-2007. In film, his credits include 'The Hillside Strangler' (2004), in which he was nominated for a Fangoria Chainsaw Award; the role of Brucie in the remake of 'The Longest Yard' (2005); the Adam Sandler comedy 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry' in 2008, and 'Takers' (2010). On the small screen, Nicholas has carved his niche in the detective genre, having appeared in 'The Protector' (2011), 'White Collar' (2012), and most recently in a recurring role in CBS' 'Blue Bloods' (2010-2014), alongside Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg. His next feature is the comedy sequel, 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' (2015), starring Kevin James.
Veteran actor James Remar (Dr. Paul Gregory from 'Inferno') has spent the majority of his film career playing villains. He is well known as the aggressively sexual and violent Ajax in the 1979 cult film 'The Warriors', and played the murdering sociopath Albert Ganz in the 1982 hit '48 Hrs.' He was originally cast as Corporal hicks in James Cameron's 1986 hit sequel 'Aliens', but was replaced by Michael Biehmn shortly after filming began due to creative differences with Cameron. However, despite that, one piece of footage with Remar still made it into the final cut of the film, when the Marines enter the processing station and the camera tilts down, though James is not shown close-up, he's definitely there. He was also filmed from the back as the Marines first enter the compound and when Hicks approaches the cocooned woman, although it is unclear if it's Remar or Biehn. Remar's other films include 'Drugstore Cowboy' (1989), ,'Tales From The Darkside: The Movie' (1990), '2 Fast 2 Furious' (2003), and 'Blade: Trinity' (2004). Remar also portrayed the character of Raiden in the video game sequel 'Mortal Kombat: Annihilation' (1997), and a patrolman in the much-maligned remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' (1998). From 2006 to 2013, Remar co-starred in 'Dexter' on Showtime, portraying Dexter's adopted father Harry Morgan in a role nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor. Most recently, James voiced the autobot Sideswipe in 2011's 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon', the third installment in the franchise, and for Quentin Tarantino in the gritty western 'Django Unchained' (2012). In addition, Remar has lent his voice to numerous cartoon characters, and frequently appears as a guest star on TV dramas, such as 'Hawaii Five-0' (2011), 'Grey's Anatomy' (2013-2014) and 'Franklin & Bash' (2014).
Actor and writer Nicholas Sadler has appeared in over 31 projects, most notably 'Inferno' (2000), 'Fair Game' (2010), and the remake of 'True Grit' (2010). Nicholas attended New York's famed Juilliard School, and got his first break in Oliver Stone's 'The Doors' (1991), alongside Val Kilmer. That part led to Nicholas gaining roles in Stephen King's 'Sometimes They Come Back' (1991) and his role as Mad Dog Coll in 'Mobsters', also in 1991. He has had major roles in films such as 'Scent Of A Woman' (1992), 'Disclosure' (1994) and 'Twister' (1996). In 1998, Sadler wrote and directed the short film 'Jesus Tells A Joke', which premiered at the Hamptons International Film Festival and went on to screen at festivals around the world, including Slamdance, Denver, and Deauville. Most recently, Nick has concentrated on his screenwriting, and operates his own website, www.nicksadler.com.

One of Argenziano's best-known roles is as the recurring character Jacob Carter in the television series 'Stargate SG-1', a role he portrayed from 1998-2005.
