Casting Call For JASON VOORHEES!

Personally I find this to be small news, but after the FREDDY VS JASON debacle (casting a Jason Voorhees with “sad eyes”), I figured enough of you care about what type of actor Platinum Dunes and New Line are looking for to play Jason in their remake of Friday the 13th In addition, the casting breakdown does include confirmation that we will in fact see a young Jason in the film! Read on for the official casting call.
JASON VOORHEES: Caucasian, fair complexion, Late 20’s, Early 30’s, stunt man. He is thin, lean, and cut from living off the land and residing in the forest around Crystal Lake…

YOUNG JASON VOORHEES: Caucasian, fair complexion, older, smaller, kid to play 9 or 10 years of age…

Sounds pretty basic, no? Glad to see there’s no need for “sympathetic eyes.”

FRIDAY THE 13th is set to begin filming April 21 in Austin Texas with Marcus Nispel (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) behind the camera. The remake will focus on Jason Voorhees — who will wear the mask and kill — and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake.
