The name of actor Bill Moseley and the horror genre go hand in hand, as he has starred in a slew of cult classic films such as “Repo! The Genetic Opera”, “House Of 1,000 Corpses”, The Devil’s Rejects” and the most recent “3 From Hell”. Moseley’s first big role in the horror genre came from playing the character of Chop Top in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2”. Moseley also went on to appear in the HBO series “Carnivale” and is also an accomplished musician performing with the likes of Buckethead and Phil Anselmo to only name a few.
We recently had a chance to catch up with Bill Moseley ahead of his upcoming appearance at Twiztid’s Astronomicon which will be taking place in Sterling Heights, Michigan. At Astronomicon Moseley will be offering fans a rare opportunity for a very special photo op of him in the infamous Chop Top make-up.
During our conversation, Moseley talks about bringing the character of Chop Top to life, interacting with fans, how he still owns the Chop Top costume and how he would like to someday see the character resurrected. We also talked about his work with Rob Zombie, his musician work, and Phil Anselmo’s horror film recommendations.
