I know it’s just a rumor at this point, but I’m of the belief that Udo Kier would be a perfect fit for the “Human Centipede” franchise. Kier has practically made a career out of portraying creepy characters, and, truthfully, Dieter Laser’s performance in the first film is eerily reminiscent of the aforementioned cult actor’s work. With Laser out of the picture for “Final Sequence”, it only makes sense that Six and company would try to find someone to fill the peculiar thespian’s misshapen shoes. So to speak.
Laser, as you may recall, recently had a falling out with the controversial filmmaker, resulting in a nasty lawsuit and some mud-slinging. Dr. Hieter and Martin — that bug-eyed weirdo from “Full Sequence” — were supposed to team up for the final installment, so the split isn’t exactly what Six had in mind. However, Kier could be the solution to that problem.
“The Human Centipede 3” is supposed to be the final chapter in the epic trilogy, which will conclude with a 500-person centipede. How will Six manage such a diabolical act? That remains to be seen. However, if production is going to move ahead without Laser, then Kier is the only clear choice. Here’s hoping this isn’t just another silly Internet rumor.
