robertenglund210x300Horror icon Robert Englund is said to be taking on a guest role in US hit forensics show Bones.

In an upcoming episode Englund is said to be playing a janitor at a high school that once saw Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) as a student. A murder has taken place and so Booth and Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan are called in to investigate.

Cue Englund skulking around looking uber creepy and probably some sly nods to Nightmare On Elm Street. And what’s the betting that we see a hint of a stripey jumper somewhere, answers on a postcard folks.

Englund doesn’t do much in the way of cameos or guest roles, sticking mostly to horror films that tend to go straight to DVD. So it’ll be nice seeing him again in the mainstream, particularly since he’s not doing a cameo in the upcoming remake of Nightmare On Elm Street, the film that made him famous.

While we love a cameo, we think it might have been better to see Englund play Gormogon, the villain of season three who had a penchant for eating his victims.
