The Surprising Role Horror Actor Jocelin Donahue Would Like To Take On - Exclusive

Jocelin Donahue has a knack for horror, starring in independent films such as "The House of the Devil," "Dead Awake," and "All the Creatures Were Stirring." Arguably her biggest roles to date are in "Doctor Sleep," in which she plays the mother of a girl with "the shining," and "Insidious: Chapter 2," where she plays the younger version of Barbara Hershey's character.

Donahue's latest film, "Offseason," which is now in theaters and available on VOD and Digital, is also in the horror genre — and may be her creepiest yet. As Marie, Donahue returns to the isolated vacation town where her late mother is buried, just as the only bridge to the mainland is raised for the winter. Stranded, Marie has one strange encounter after another with the locals, who she soon realizes harbor a deep, dark secret.

But despite all her horror experience — or maybe because of it — Donahue dreams of going in a different direction. During an exclusive interview with Nicki Swift, the scream queen revealed the surprising role she'd love to tackle.

Jocelin Donahue could see her voice on Rick and Morty

Outside of horror films, Donahue has been featured in numerous TV commercials and on the streaming drama series "StartUp," among several one-off appearances on shows like "Lethal Weapon" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." So, it's not too surprising that she'd like to try her hand at other genres.

"It would be fun to do a romantic comedy after a horror film, as a palate cleanser," she acknowledged. "But I'd [also] love to do more straight drama stuff [and] more episodic [fare]."

But perhaps the most surprising creative avenue Donahue would like to venture down is Adult Swim-style animation. "That would be fun," she says. "During lockdown, I watched all of 'Rick and Morty' and 'Solar Opposites.' So, it would be fun to be a character on one of those cartoons. Anything creative in the voiceover world."

Donahue's latest film, "Offseason," is out now in theaters and available on VOD and Digital.
