Bad News Comes to The Lords of Salem


’70s child star enters cast

Now that Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem has resumed production in Los Angeles – after shooting in Salem, Massachusetts – the writer-director is sharing a bit more casting news.

From Zombie’s Facebook page: Child star Brandon Cruz has joined the cast of THE LORDS OF SALEM as Ted Delta, a local Salem drug counselor.

Brandon was a staple of 70’s TV appearing in such shows as The Incredible Hulk, Police Story, Kung Fu, Gunsmoke and of course as Eddie along side Bill Bixby in the hit show The Courtship Of Eddie’s Father. Add to that a starring turn in the 1976 smash film The Bad News Bears.

During is absence from acting Brandon has focused on music, heading the punk band Dr. Know during the 80’s and more recently replacing Jello Biafra in the legendary band The Dead Kennedys.
