Jackie Earle Haley is a brilliant actor, oft overlooked. Last I saw him on the screen, he played Ronnie J. McGorvey, a registered sex offender, in the brilliant movie LITTLE CHILDREN, based on the novel by Syracuse alum Tom Perrotta. Casting Jackie as Willie is a flawless choice, and I can only imagine the chemistry between Jackie and Johnny as Willie and Barnabas, respectively. I give Tim Burton serious props for casting Jackie Earle Haley as Willie Loomis. This shows that Mr. Burton and Mr. Depp are taking DARK SHADOWS 2012 seriously.
