Ken Kirzinger (born November 4, 1959) is a Canadian stuntman and actor best known for his portrayal of Jason Voorhees in Freddy vs. Jason (2003) and of Pa in Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007). He also played "Mason" Jason Voorhees character spoof in the horror film parody, Stan Helsing. At 6 ft 5⁄2 in (1.97 m) he is one of the tallest men to have played Jason Voorhees. Freddy vs. Jason director Ronny Yu tried to limit Kirzinger's stunts on the film as much as possible. Stuntman Glenn Ennis was called in to perform a series of stunts, including a stunt showing Jason walking through a field killing teenagers while on fire. Long before Kirzinger took over the role of Jason Voorhees from Kane Hodder, he had ties to Friday the 13th. He appeared in 1989's Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan as a New York cook who gets in Jason's way while pursuing Rennie Wickham (Jensen Daggett) and Sean Robertson (Scott Reeves). Jason, played by Kane Hodder, threw Kirzinger over the counter. In addition to his role as the cook, Kirzinger also served as a stunt coordinator for the film.
