Heath Ledger was considered for the role of Jerry during early stages of development, but he passed away in January of 2008.
Colin Farrell accepted the role of Jerry because he liked director Craig Gillespie's work on Lars and the Real Girl (2007).
Taking into account flashback footage, Chris Sarandon is the only actor to appear in all three Fright Night films. In the original Fright Night (1985), he plays the role of Jerry. In the 2011 remake, he has a cameo as the man who hits the Brewsters' car and is subsequently bitten by Jerry.
