While shooting has already begun for TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D, Bloody Disgusting has received exclusive news on just who will be playing Leatherface, along with the full cast and some veteran cameos.

The role of Leatherface will played by new discovery Dan Yeager. Director John Lussenhop says he knew he was perfect for the role immediately, after a chance meeting. He describes the 6' 6" actor as having "huge farm boy arms, a brooding brow. He's quiet, circumspect, and immediately struck a menacing chord with me. After five minutes, I could no longer think of anyone else for the role."

Gunnar Hansen, who played the original Leatherface and Marilyn Burns also from the original film, will be joining John Dugan who will be reprising his role as Grandpa. Bill Mosely (from Hooper's 1983 sequel) will be standing in for Jim Siedow in the role of Drayton Sawyer.

Tania Raymonde will play "Nikki", a small-town girl with an attitude who is the best friend of "Heather" (Alexandra Daddario), who travels to small-town Texas to collect her inheritance, which includes her deranged cousin Leatherface.

Acclaimed R&B singer Trey Songz will be making his film debut as Heather's boyfriend "Ryan" and Keram Malicki-S├ínchez as Ryan's friend.

Shaun Sipos plays "Darryl" in the film, a hitchhiker along for the ride who knows more than he lets on.

Thom Barry will be playing the role of "Sherrif Hooper", with Paul Rae as town mayor "Burt Hartman"
Scott Eastwood will portray "Deputy Carl Hartman," a young officer who is battling a powerful attraction to Heather while hunting Leatherface.

Noted character actor Richard Riehler will play Sawyer's family attorney "Farnsworth."
