Welcome to the first post in an irregular series entitled “CASTING CALL.” For each entry in the series, I will pick a horror character and nominate the perfect celeb to play them on film.

THE CHARACTER :: The Zombie from “Scooby Doo, Where Are You?,” Episode 13, Season 1… “Which Witch is Which?”

THE CAST :: Vince Clarke


Vince Clarke is a true legend. To be a founding member in one truly seminal band is a triumph few can claim. Clarke can say that many times over. His work with Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Erasure and The Assembly gave us some of the most memorableĀ moments of the Synth-Pop movement. I had the pleasure of seeing Erasure in St. Louis in 2011. It was an awesome performance all the way ’round and a great evening. It is impossible, however, not to see the incredible resemblance to Scooby’s Zombie nemesis and that’s what makes him perfect for this casting call.

NOTE :: For this casting call, Casey Kasem would STILL provide the groaning grunts of the Zombie’s vocals. Don’t mess with Casey.
