Last year brought Michael Myers home again for the anticipated Halloween sequel that went back to the roots of the franchise. It took Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride and Your Highness director David Gordon Green to give fans the face-off between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers that Halloween H20 didn’t really do properly. And while Michael Myers is more brutal than ever after being locked up for 40 years, as the Halloween Honest Trailer illustrates, the real monsters are the true crime podcasters.

(Welcome to Role Call, where we examine two performances from an actor – their first defining role and their most recent/last – to get a sense of who they are.)
Jamie Lee Curtis has always been fascinating because of her contradiction. As the daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, she could have been the poster child for Hollywood nepotism, but she became an actor of the people.
Even though she describes her dad as becoming a post-divorce absentee parent when she was really little, and we can’t really quantify these things with a graphing calculator or anything, it’s still no stretch to assume that her mom’s status gave her a foot in the acting door. Advice, guidance, a little nudge. The benefit of being on backlots throughout an entire childhood.
But Curtis didn’t take the royal red carpet path to easy fame. She leaped out of obscurity with a clang and violin screech inside the flimsy, uncertain walls of indie horror. By the time he rounded up a crew for his low budget horror film, John Carpenter had made a low budget sci-fi comedy, a low budget exploitation action flick, and a low budget thriller, so it couldn’t have been clear that Curtis was hitching her wagon to a rocket ship even though the resulting creative relationship was explosive.
Curtis stuck with the genre for years, and has admirably stuck with the Halloween franchise itself even through its most heinous incarnations.
