The movie, which follows 2018′s Halloween, traces the survivors and victims of the original movie, including Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode.

In an interview with CinemaBlend, director David Gordon Green revealed how his quick cameo it came to be.

“In the original Carpenter film, the Bob character, I wanted to have acknowledgement of all the deaths from the previous film, but we couldn’t track [the actor] down or get the rights,” he said.

“Somehow we couldn’t clear an image of Bob for our television news broadcast. And so I was frustrated by that because I wanted to acknowledge Bob’s death, but we couldn’t get footage of Bob. So I Googled ‘Bob 1970s High School,’ and a photo of Bob Odenkirk popped up that looked just like Bob! So I thought, ‘He’s probably easier to find; let’s go get him!’” he said.

(In the original Halloween, John Michael Graham played Bob Simms, and it is his only credited role.)

Jamie Lee Curtis added: “They contacted him and he signed off on the rights to have his high school picture be the Bob in [the movie].”

“I’m a huge Bob Odenkirk fan. So that opportunity was just too juicy to ignore,” the director added.
