The Grim Reaper first made his infamous appearance in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey back in 1991. Since then he’s been a fan favorite of many. William Sadler (Die Hard 2, The Shawshank Redemption, Iron Man 3) played the Grim Reaper in the second Bill & Ted movie, making room for himself as this iconic character.

The news was released on the Bill & Ted Twitter account of all places, but at least that gave fans plenty of room to react and chat about it.
