Matthew Lillard is here! This is not a drill. Matthew Lillard is here! We're diving into Five Nights At Freddy's and discussing how Lillard's kids clued him in on how epic this role could be. [Spoiler warning]

Lillard also shares that he did not rehearse his movements in William Afton's Spring Bonnie suit, which is impressive considering he absolutely nailed that performance. We know what a different beast acting in a suit can be, and we love a Matthew Lillard villain reveal! He also has humble hopes for Five Nights At Freddy's sequels (we're putting our money on a very good chance of that happening, Matthew!), where he would love to tackle even more suit work, really honing his Spring Bonnie movements.

The record-breaking Five Nights at Freddy’s is available now on Digital, 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD from Universal Home Entertainment, complete with a peak behind-the-scenes. Check out the list of bonus features:

  • FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY'S: From Game to Big Screen - Feel the frights of Freddy Fazbear's come alive as the film recreates the game's world with immersive environments and wild surprises that'll haunt longtime fans and newcomers alike.
