It's been a big year for the Halloween franchise, which released a direct sequel to the original 1978 film. The film earned positive reviews and wiped all the sequels that fans didn't like off the face of the earth. But where do all those Michael Myers go when the timeline is erased? They gather together to take a group picture, of course! Check out 19 actors and stuntmen who have played Michael Myers together in one photo.
Michael Myers/The Shape is almost always wearing his trademark mask, which means that it's pretty easy to slip actors in and out without the audience ever knowing. Including the flashbacks to Michael's youth, tons of actors and stuntmen have played the character across 11 movies and at least 19 of them assembled for our amusement.
Sean Clark is a producer and talent agent who has been involved with the Halloween franchise. Clark, the 20th person in the photo, gathered 19 different actors who have played Michael Myers over the franchise's entire history. Posting the photo on Facebook, Clark wrote that this was likely to be the only time that fans would see this many or more in one place. So, drink it all in now and save it as your wallpaper.
Fans of Halloween will likely instantly recognize the man in the center. That's Nick Castle, the man who originated the role all the way in 1978. Castle reprised his role in a limited capacity the latest Halloween. He shared the part with stuntman James Jude Courtney (also present in the photo), who does all the action-intensive scenes in the film.
The rest of the actors have appeared in Halloween films from across the franchise, like Halloween (1978), Halloween (2007), and Halloween (2018). They do a great job with titles in this franchise. You can also find actors from sequels such as Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.
The latest Halloween was seen as a return to form for the franchise and served as a direct sequel to the original film. Directed by David Gordon Green, the 2018 film saw Jamie Lee Curtis reprise her role as Laurie, who has been preparing for the eventual return of Michael Myers for decades. Her dark premonition comes true when Michael finally does escape from an asylum and returns to finish the job he started.
There's been no official confirmation of another Halloween sequel, though rumors have been floating that parties are interested.
