Rob Zombie has slowly been doling out casting news about this August's "H2", sequel to his megahit remake of "Halloween."
Malcolm McDowell and Scout Taylor-Compton have yet to be officially announced (but are expected to return).
On his official MySpace blog, Zombie announced that Howard Hesseman has signed to play Uncle Meat, owner of Uncle Meat's Java Hole.
Meanwhile Bill Fagerbakke has joined the cast as Sherriff Brackett's assistant,k Deputy Webb. Fagerbakke is perhaps best known for providing the voice of Spongebob Squarepants' character "Patrick."
And "Deadwood" star Dayton Callie has joined the cast as Coroner Alan Hooks, while Richard Brake (of "Doom") has joined as the coroner's necrophiliac assistant.
