Kane Hodder

Description   [from Freebase]

Kane Warren Hodder (born April 8, 1955) is an American actor, stuntman and author. He is best known for his portrayal of Jason Voorhees in four films from the Friday the 13th film series (parts VII through X). He is also known for his role as Victor Crowley in Hatchet. Kane Hodder is the first actor to portray Jason Voorhees more than once, in a total of four movies. He has also portrayed horror icons Leatherface in the stunts of the 1990 film Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, and a glove hinted to be Freddy Krueger's pulling Jason's mask to hell in Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. He also appeared in an episode of The Arsenio Hall Show to promote Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, in costume as Jason. Although he offered to reprise his role as Jason Voorhees in the 2003 film Freddy vs. Jason, director Ronny Yu replaced Hodder with 6'5½" Canadian stunt man Ken Kirzinger. The switch created controversy among fans of the series and has been credited to several rumors, including Kirzinger's location in Canada, and his height compared to Robert Englund, the actor who portrayed Freddy Krueger.
