Kiefer Sutherland is reminiscing about “The Lost Boys”.
In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, the actor and singer is taking a look back at the 1987 vampire classic, in which he starred as blood-sucking biker David.
Discussing his role in the film, Sutherland remembered one scene in particular that has stuck within him — even though it wound up on the cutting-room floor.
“There was a scene that actually didn’t make the movie that I was really, really excited about, mainly because it was just so violent I couldn’t believe that we were doing it,” Sutherland said.
In this deleted scene, Sutherland describes his character encountering a guy at a beach and eating his head.
“The part of the scene that I loved the most was literally, it was like a cake,” he explained. “I ate the whole back of his head off, and blood just went everywhere.”
According to Sutherland, 52, perhaps the creepiest part of this scene was the way the director told him to play it.
“I had been directed to just smile like a child having cake,” he described.
While this act of cannibalism never made it to the screen, Sutherland went on to talk about his chacter’s rocker image in the movie, revealing that it was inspired by the one and only Billy Idol.
“Billy Idol had just come out… and he looked cool. I mean, he just looked bada**. And so I thought, ‘Well, he’s got white hair. That could look really cool’,” he said, explaining that the director chose his character’s white hair.
