Linkin Park's Chester Bennington Teases 'Saw 3D' Role

'There's going to be blood spattering at your face,' Linkin Park singer promises.

Those familiar with the "Saw" film franchise are fully aware that a

large part of the popular series' appeal — in addition to its

always-disturbing, gory action or trap sequences — is the veil

of mystery that surrounds each film's individual plot. The films are

not screened for critics, and it's difficult to get definitive details

from any of the actors or filmmakers before the film opens.

Such is the case with the upcoming "Saw 3-D." So far, all we have to

go on is a

trailer, a cool-but-creepy

windshield of a car.

When MTV News caught up with singer/actor Bennington recently, we

tried to get him to divulge a few details about his mysterious role in

the heavily hyped bloodfest.

"I can tell you that my name is Evan," Bennington offered. "Other than

that, I can tell you nothing else about the character."

Gee, thanks, Chester. What about the scene you're involved in then?

"The thing that is interesting about this particular scene is that

it's a trap set for multiple people," he explained. "Jigsaw, for those

who know the films, Jigsaw typically sets up traps for one, maybe two

people. There are never more people involved than that."

Until now, it seems.

"This particular trap is set up for multiple people, and it's a very

complicated trap that's been set. There are different kinds of

emotional things going on for my character, but it's very much in the

tradition of a good 'Saw' trap," Bennington promised. "And it's in

3-D, so there's going to be blood spattering at your face, which is

something that's going to be pretty bad-ass."
