From 2010 Saw 7, originally intended to be the final entry in the franchise, featured a surprising and gory cameo from Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. Bennington wasn’t actually the original lead singer for Linkin Park, but it wasn’t until shortly after he took over as lead vocalist that the band rocketed to stardom through their album Hybrid Theory. Songs like “In the End” and “Crawling” became massive crossover hits, and Linkin Park never looked back, remaining active and loved by fans for nearly the next two decades.

That was until Bennington tragically died by suicide in July 2017, just two months after the similar suicide of fellow rock star and close friend of Bennington, Chris Cornell. Linkin Park still seems to be figuring out where they’ll go with their art now that Bennington is gone, but he doesn’t seem ready to break up. Bennington was a tragic loss to both those close to him and the music world as a whole, but it seems unlikely that his contributions will be forgotten.

Many music stars try acting, but Bennington didn’t do much. Made cameos in both Crank Y Crank: high voltage, but his only real meat acting role came in Saw 7. Bennington played the last type of character anyone would have expected, a racist skinhead named Evan.

Chester Bennington as Evan in Saw 7

Despite only appearing in Saw 7In Jigsaw’s opening trap, Bennington’s Evan was placed in one of the most diabolical scenarios. The lives of Evan’s friends and girlfriend were also at stake, and Evan could only save them, along with himself, by ripping the meat off his back, which had been stuck to a car seat. Bennington plays the role very well as well, as he is said to have hired an acting coach to help him get into the mindset of his deplorable character.

Interestingly, Bennington ended up being part of Saw 7 due to the fact that one of his Linkin Park bandmates lived near Mark Burg, a producer from the Saw franchise. Once Burg learned that Bennington was a huge fan of the Saw Burg asked if Bennington would be interested in appearing in one, and he enthusiastically answered yes. Evan of Bennington was actually originally planned to survive his ordeal constructed by Detective Mark Hoffman, and to be shown at the hospital later. However, this plan was canceled due to Bennington’s busy schedule, which made it impossible to go back and film the follow-up scene.
