Jeffrey Combs, Kid Cudi, and Big Boi Join Shudder’s Creepshow!

by Paul Aloisio

Yes, you read that crazy headline right. There were loads of new updates on the Creepshow TV series released this week, outlining not only new additions to the cast but also plot details for all of the episodes in the first season.

Fans of both Kid Cudi and fellow rapper Big Boi of Outkast will be pleased to know that they’ll both have roles in the show. Also announced is cult horror star Jeffrey Combs of Re-Animator – but you and I are both aware that Combs needs no introduction.

Bruce Davison, who is no stranger to horror anthologies having been featured in Tales from the Crypt, has also been added. Finally, DJ Qualls is also joining the show – he’s been in a ton of movies and TV shows, but to me, he’ll always be from The New Guy. You know who I’m talking about.

The cast has already been spectacular, but these new additions to Creepshow come as a welcome surprise nonetheless.

Slash Film also gave us the details on all of the episodes for the first season of the show’s return. Read them below, and follow this link to make sure you’re up to date on all Creepshow news!
