Actress from Rob Zombie’s ‘Devil’s Rejects’ & ‘Halloween’ Coming to Evansville
For fans of Rob Zombie horror movies, the name Leslie Easterbrook likely sounds familiar. That's because Leslie Easterbrook portrayed Mother Firefly in Zombie's 2005 film, The Devil's Rejects where she starred alongside Sheri Moon Zombie (Baby Firefly), Bill Mosely (Otis Firefly), and the late Sid Haig (Captain Spaulding).
Easterbrook also later appeared in Zombie's 2007 remake of John Carpenter's 1978 classic, Halloween where she played the role of Patty Frost, the security guard working for Smith's Grove Sanitarium who was tasked with transporting the psychopathic Michael Myers. But Easterbrook didn't get her start in film with Rob Zombie movies. The actress has a lengthy resume dating back to 1980 when she first appeared in the romantic comedy, Just Tell Me You Want Me but she is most well known for her re-occurring role as Sargeant Callahan in the somewhat slapstick comedies of the Police Academy franchise.
So why is Leslie Easterbrook coming to Evansville? She will join other celebrities like Martin Klebba (The Pirates of the Caribbean Franchise, Star Wars Last Jedi, Jurrasic World), Sean Kanan (Karate Kid 3), and Rob Mello (Happy Death Day, Fear the Walking Dead) as featured guests at the upcoming Raptor Con 2021.
