Pee WeeWhen asked to relate some crazy stories of the past year, director Sullivan recounted meeting Paul "Pee Wee Herman" Reubens at Comic-Con where the topic of joining the cast of "2002 Maniacs" first came up: "I’ve known Paul Reubens since the 80’s when I worked at MTV and he was a guest VJ as Pee Wee Herman. I ran into him at Comic-Con having not seen him in a while and the first thing he says to me is “I love 2001 MANIACS! Can I be in the sequel!” And I say, “Uh, sure!” So, it looks like Paul Reubens is going to be in BEVERLY HILLBILLYS. I can’t seem to turn on Showtime without it being on!"

Reubens is no stranger to horror-comedy.

Besides scaring us all for life as kids with the Large Marge scene in "Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure", don’t forget that Reubens’ starred as the wacky vampire Amilyn in the original "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" feature film, and way, way back had a role in Afred Sole ("Alice Sweet Alice)’s 1982 horror spoof "Pandemonium".
