There will be no shortage of film and television inspired costumes this Halloween. We can already guess who we’ll see — Bane, Batman, The Avengers, Spider-Man, Katniss Everdeen, and Optimus Prime. However, what are the least popular film-inspired Halloween costumes. Costumes that either no one will understand or both to put the effort into creating. They are these. These are those costumes that nobody would lift a finger to create or acknowledge.

Jeffrey Jones

Not Jeffrey Jones’s character from Ferris Bueller. Not Jeffrey Jones’s character from Beetlejuice. Not even Jeffrey Jones’s character from Stay Tuned. Just Jeffrey Jones the guy.

Toby from Paranormal Activity

We just don’t have the technology to pull off invisible. Yet.

Ang Lee’s Hulk

The Hulk was the breakout star from this summer’s The Avengers and you’ll likely see many green, roided out trick r’ treaters. However, they’ll all have the pouty lips and puppy dog eyes of Mark Ruffalo. It’s very unlikely that you’ll see Ang Lee‘s Hulk out this Halloween. Even at hipster parties.

Captain Barack Sparrow

I’m mad that I just thought this one up. Otherwise, I would have totally made this my costume.

Eugene Levy’s Character from Bringing Down the House

If this were Halloween 2003, maybe. But this is 2012 and after 15 American Pie spin-offs and sequels, America has reached its Eugene Levy saturation point. It’s going to take a heck of a Christopher Guest film to reverse that.

Mac & Me

You might get points for creativity and willingness to think outside of the box, but you are absolutely not getting any ass. Unless you’re already in need of a wheelchair. In which case, very creative!

Anyone From Prometheus

Too soon. Too soon. You’d be better off going as a character from Innocence of Muslims.

Jeffrey Jones: A Life Less Ordinary…Because He’s a Sex Offender http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeffrey-jones-a-life-less-ordinary-because-hes-a-sex-offender/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jeffrey-jones-a-life-less-ordinary-because-hes-a-sex-offender/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I'll take a one-way ticket to Bangkok, please.Ferris Bueller always said Principal Rooney was a bad guy. Turns out, he was right.Actor Jeffrey Jones, best known for his roll as Principal Rooney in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, was arrested (again) for failing to register as a sex offender (again). Jones' sex-offender status stems from an incident in 2003 where the actor was caught with child pornography. He also paid a then 14-year-old boy, Cameron Frye, to pose for pornographic pictures.What makes this case so galling is that it all could have been avoided if Jones would have had enough consideration to explore his dark urges in Thailand, like a decent human being. For shame, Jeffrey. For shame.Now, please enjoy these out-of-context quotes from Jones' character in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which are much funnier now that he's a known sex offender. (Cinema Blend)See the quotes after the jump.

See the quotes after the jump.

"I did not achieve this position in life by having some snot-nosed punk leave my cheese out in the wind."

"Between grief and nothing… I’ll take grief."

"How would you feel about another *year* on high school? Under my close personal supervision."

"I don’t trust this kid any further than I can throw him."

"What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas."
