WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Film legend John Carpenter has gone on to a distinguished career in horror films. Carpenter is known mostly for 'Halloween', but has a bevy of classics to his credit, including 'The Fog', 'Assault on Precinct 13', 'The Thing', 'Village of the Damned', and 'Escape from New York'.
Tommy Lee Wallace
Tommy Lee Wallace, who worked with John Carpenter on the first two of his 'Halloween' movies, ascended to the director's chair for 'Halloween III: Season of the Witch'. Tommy went on to direct several small-scale TV shows and movie, including an episode of 'Baywatch' in 1989, Stephen King's popular tale 'IT' in 1991, and 'Final Justice' in 1998. Wallace was once married to Nancy Loomis, whom he met on the set of the first 'Halloween'. His most recent project is another Carpenter sequel, 'Vampires: Los Muertos', which he completed in 2002.
Veteran stuntman Dick Warlock is the only man who played Michael Myers that has an official website. Warlock, the father of actors Billy and Lance Warlock, was a stunt double for Kurt Russell for over 20 years. Warlock appeared in many of John Carpenter's films, which led him to the role as Michael Myers. He's made quite an impact on the horror world, working on films like 'Pumpkinhead', 'Child's Play' 2 and 3, and 'Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning'. Prior to 1998's 'Halloween H20', Dick was approached about possibly reprising his role as The Shape, but it was given to Chris Durand instead. To this day, Warlock still owns the jumpsuit, boots, knife and scalpel he used while filming 'Halloween II'.
Pittsburgh native Tom Atkins was a veteran of two John Carpenter movies prior to being cast as Dr. Challis in 'Halloween III'. His roles as 'Nick Castle' in 'The Fog' (1980) and 'Rehme' in 'Escape From New York' (1981) helped Atkins achieve success primarily on the small screen in the 1980s and 1990s. In addition, Atkins also starred in the popular film 'Lethal Weapon' in 1987, and in the 1993 cop drama 'Striking Distance' with Bruce Willis, which was coincidentally, filmed in his hometown of Pittsburgh. Most recently, Atkins appeared in two episodes of 'Oz' in 2003, NBC's 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' in 2003, and on 'The Jury' in 2004.
Stacey Nelkin, who played Ellie Grimbridge in 'Halloween III', was also featured in the broadway production of "Bullets Over Broadway" (1994). Two other films that feature Stacey are "Yellowbeard" (1983) and the made-for-TV "The Jerk Too" (1984). Stacey was also famously cast as the "sixth replicant" in "Blade Runner" (1982), but the part was cut just before shooting began due to the skyrocketing budget of the film.
Nancy Loomis, who played Annie in Halloween, has been out of acting since 1992. Following her appearance in John Carpenter's original classic, she was brought back as the wife of Dr. Challis in the spinoff 'Halloween III: Season of the Witch'. Nancy was originally married to 'Halloween III' director Tommy Lee Wallace, then later divorced and got re-married. Her other screen credits include the original 'Assault on Precinct 13', 'The Twilight Zone', and in 1992's 'Lady Boss'.
Jamie Lee Curtis
Jamie Lee Curtis, famous as Laurie in four 'Halloween' installments, is now semi-retired from acting, taking a few projects here or there to concentrate on her family. Her many screen credits include 'The Fog', 'Prom Night', 'True Lies', and 'Freaky Friday'. Most recently, Jamie has started publishing a series of children's books with her friend Laura Cornell.
Al Berry, who played Harry Grimbridge in 'Halloween III', has been out of acting since the early 1990s. His last appearances were on the TV shows, 'The Golden Girls' and 'Mad About You'. His last film role was in 1991, where he played the 'Bread Man' in the film 'The Linguini Incident'.
