Kane Hodder Injured During ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Mocap Session

In the unholy trinity of immortal horror movie icons that more or less defined the genre in the 80s, Jason Voorhees may frighten me the most. He’s the unstoppable force and the immovable object, whereas Michael is mostly the former, and he shares Freddy’s talent for creative kills without having to rely on any of those fantastical dream powers.

Of the numerous actors that have contributed to his epic legacy, Kane Hodder was the first to bring a personality to his physicality. It’s his involvement — and special make-up effects creator Tom Savini — that will guarantee the Jason we see in Friday the 13th: The Game will be the real thing.

All Hodder needs to do is make it through mocap.

That photo was taken after a recent motion capture session left Hodder with a bruised tricep that looks gnarly even by stuntman standards. He’s healing just fine, according to a post on the game’s Facebook page that doesn’t mention which of the Big J.V.’s trademark kills Kane was recording when it happened, unfortunately. Did Jason kill anyone with his tricep?

    Well this is kinda ironic…

    • REC03

      don’t you think?

      • the usual suspect

        it’s like raaain on your wedding day

        • Hash-Slinging Slasher

          It’s a free ride, when you’re already late to your friends surprise birthday party in the woods, but then Jason appears in the road and spears the tire of your beetle, even though you actually did leave home WITH your American Express.

  • AdamX

    Kane Hodder is epic, shame they replaced him in FvsJ but that was over a decade ago so water under the bridge and all that nonsense.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Really curious how the hell he did that.

  • Tsadi Waw Mem Taw

    I wish they’d do another Freddy Versus Jason with Kane. They could even put the reboot Freddy in it for all I care.

    • Adam Clifton

      He’s said in interviews that he’d like a Michael Vs Jason movie. Now that the rights to Halloween are in the wind, it could be possible

    • James

      I’d rather have Derek Mears.

      • Blade

        Agreed. His Jason is so much better than Hodder’s.

      • Daniel Anderson

        Derek Mears did an awesome job as Jason. Not to mention Hodder is getting up there in age, so its time to pass the torth. As much as I like Hodder even in the hatchet series and the marrow.

        • James

          Hodder’s jason is certainly a classic but Mears brought a very intense and imposing Jason and it kills me that we may not see him return.

          • Daniel Anderson

            Honestly that bothers me as well. For the new movie reboot I hope they use him. He’s certainly tall enough.

      • J Jett

        James, hell yes!! Derek’s Jason V is the best Jason since #1 Jason Ted White from part 4.

      • Tsadi Waw Mem Taw

        I don’t have any problem with Derek Mears as an actor nor as a person, but that movie makes me sick, including the way they had him play the role and he has said plainly that he did whatever they told him to. I would like for them to return to the format of the originals, and if they’d have him play that Jason, then I’m sure it would be good, but I and many others want Kane to receive that honor, and not only that, but for most people who are over twenty-five, he is the definitive Jason Voorhees, so it’s bordering on false advertising for them ever to have made Freddy Versus Jason without him.

        • James

          As someone over 25 I never found him to be the definitive Jason for me parts 2-4 were the definitive and Mears resembled that era closer. While hodder’s Jason was cool in part 7, I was just not very keen on the zombie Jason.

          • Tsadi Waw Mem Taw

            I agree in that I think he looks more similar to Richard Brooker (when Brooker was wearing the padding) than does Hodder or even Ted White, Tom Morga or C.J. Graham for that matter, and I do wish that there could be two different directions for it to go in, like two different universes, one with him maintaining the sort of attitude that he had in the first few, and the other continuing Kane’s legacy. I always had the impression growing up watching part seven, which was probably the first F13 movie I actually saw (with the A Nightmare on Elm Street series having been basically the only current horror movies I’d been allowed to watch by that point otherwise), which I saw many, many times due to my living arrangements at the time, that Kane’s portrayal in terms of attitude was a matter of dealing with the fact that despite his near invincibility and super strength, he was being thrown around and controlled by this little blonde girl and her telekinetic abilities. I wasn’t aware back then that they’d even had different guys play the role, and so to me it was just Jason being pissed off that he, being unstoppable, as the prologue makes clear, was being confounded at every turn by this girl.

  • LivingDeadMan

    You should see the other guy!

  • Brett Lovejoy

    I’d like to think it’s a re-enactment of the kill from ‘Jason Goes To Hell,’ when the woman who works at the diner gets absolutely LAID the fuck out when she’s elbowed really, really hard in the face.

  • dmarins

    I really hope this game doesn’t suck

  • Darnell

    I am not a fan of zombie Jason. I also think the best Zombie Jason movie was “Jason Lives”.

    So I have never understood the love of Kane Hodder as Jason. I never liked his version of Jason. I mean New Blood, Jason takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell, and Jason X are the worst films in the franchise.

    Friday 13th 2, 3 and 4 (and in particular 2 & 4) are the best representations of the Jason character.

    • Flu-Like Symptoms

      I concur about zombie Jason. I much prefer the living version, pre-Jason Lives (ironic subtitle). While I enjoy New Blood, as to me it’s the last true Friday the 13th film, Kane Hodder was a bright spot in the three shoddy films that followed. He was only thing about any of them that I got any type of enjoyment or entertainment out of. The scripts sucked and the final product was even worse, but Hodder did his job well IMO. If I had to rank the zombie Jasons in order of preference, I’d have to go Kane, C.J., Ken. I view Jason Takes Manhattan as his best portrayal of the character, though the movie itself left so much to be desired.

      All that said, no one touches Ted White.

      • Darnell

        Ted White in the Final Chapter is definitely the best portrayal of Jason by far.

        I agree that Kane’s performance in those movies are the best things about them. I just feel the Zombie Jason Friday movies are so bad. They are fun to watch but as movies they are pretty bad.

    • J Jett

      Darnell, i agree. part 4’s Ted White and 2009’s Derek Mears are the best Jasons. it’s not scary when you can just lightly sprint and manage to outrun ssslooowwwwww WALKING Jason. give me the brutal fast running alive human Jason any day over lame-o zombie Jason. that being said, i DO really like Kane Hodder in general though. he seems like a really nice, cool guy.

    • wehoaks

      I never understood the obsession with this guy either. 2 and 4 are the best portrayals.

  • Jason’s disciple

    Get well soon Mr.Kane Hodder we are pulling for you use a lot of epsom salt on that injury it will help it for sure.

    • Hockey Machete

      I wouldn’t sweat it that much. After all, Kane is just like Jason: you’d be surprised how well he recovers.

  • I personally think Kane is the best Jason, but all the actors brought something to the role.

    • Justin Smith

      personally preferred cj graham

      • You can’t beat a bit of Jason Lives though to be fair, I always view it like “the greatest hits” of the series.

  • Michael Gibney

    Whoever did Part 4 is the scariest Jason. His movements really freaked me out.

    • Jordan

      That’s Ted White you’re thinking of and interesting fact Kane used his performance as Jason as an inspiration and base

    • Darnell

      Ted White was definitely the best Jason.

  • Creepshow

    Can someone please elaborate on what makes a better Jason?
    It certainly isn’t who delivers their speaking lines better. Does one swing a machete more fluidly?
    Does one look better in a crusty shirt?
    Serious question here, because no says what makes one better than the rest. I find this to be a baffling comparison.

    • J Jett

      so you like every portrayal of Jason 100% equally? there’s NO difference whatsoever between Jason from part 4 and Jason from part 8? really?

      • Khy

        You tell ’em J!

    • Robert a Bb

      well for me i like Hodder the best. because how he moves his body. how he delivers a kill. how he turns his head in a fast motion when he sees a new person to kill. the way when hes in an outfit and he either just killed someone and is on to the next person and he does that DEEP HEAVY BREATHING. things like that. the other people were great also. but there’s something about hodder’s deliver of Jason for me that’s the best

      • Creepshow

        Thank you Robert. That is an excellent explanation of how one can notice a difference. All I asked was a question and you were the one to give me an answer. And you didn’t act like I was attacking your prized possession.

        • David Stocker

          I’d say it is because Kane played the character with much more intensity. Before Part 7, Jason was either a silent monotone killer similar to Michael Myers or a deranged freak (who was more frantic than imposing). Once Kane took over, Jason became more of a “monster” (especially in Part 7). He seemed angry and raging (as Robert mentioned, the heavy breathing, the sudden intense movements, etc.) but also Kane’s frame was by far more hulking to match that new attitude.

          • Creepshow

            Good stuff, Good stuff.
            Gives me a better understanding of how others view a character.

          • Robert a Bb

            well everyone is entitled to their own opinion. and even if you did attack my option of who i like more. that’s your opinion and you have every right to it. i am a hard core Friday the 13th fan too lol. i mean look at my icon lol. but yeah that’s the reason why i love hodder the most. he showed a deep respect for the character he played ya know. not saying the other men didn’t

    • Eastman420

      And I’m more into part 3 and 4 Jason. Richard Booker and Ted White, because they made him move alot faster. Ran after victims and when they struck it was quick and usually be a one hit and your dead. Everyone has their favs. Jason Lives Jason is also a fan fav.

    • Eastman420

      Liked them also because when they got hit or cut they felt the pain and showed it.

    • Charles House

      What Kane Hodder has managed to do is use his body and the small amount of eye the we can see, to actually add emotion to what is basically a regular zombie. Most people play his as an unstoppable killing machine. Kane lets you see how Jason “thinks”.

    • Foxenstein Must Be Destroyed

      six million dollars. with six million dollars they can rebuild him.

  • John

    Dude isn’t as spry as he once was but I love that he still cares so much about Jason.

    • Charles House

      It’s always magic when someone can work on a character they love. Kane as Jason, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Arnold as the Terminator. Some things are just meant to be.

      • John

        Well said.

  • I think with Kane it’s numerous factors, he just took it so seriously, the make up is top notch, the fact he’s worked for New Line and Paramount, he’s also a stunt man and stunt co-ordinator, he’s been in Friday the 13th films just as “himself” also, and the fact he’s basically played Jason on and off since the 80’s till right now.

    That said I every single actor who’s played Jason is good, heck Ari from Part 1 is good and he’s the film for like 10 seconds and Derek form Part 12! brought his own stamp while referencing people like Ted White and others,

  • Chrissie-Watkins

    I honestly didnt think Kane Hodder could be injured.

  • RidleyScott

    I love his passion for the character. But Ted White, CJ Graham and Derek Mears were the best Jasons! Especially the legitimately frightening Ted White.

    • For some unknown reason I always struggled to get into Part IV but over the years it’s grown on me a especially Ted’s version of Jason it’s really very good.

  • Jason’s disciple

    Mr.Kane Hodder will always be the king of Friday the13th because of his unwavering dedication to the franchise and he does enjoy being endorsed by all of the former actors who portrayed Jason Voorhees before him and after him he comes highly recommended and he just loves and cares about the franchise just like we all do all hail to the king get well soon Mr.Kane Hodder we love you!

    • Маразм Клинический

            For each and every one would have been better if you had just killed yourself by masturbating on a Hodder photo to death.

          • Jason’s disciple

            You are just mad that Mr.Kane Hodder will be more than likely portraying Jason Voorhees again in the near future on the silver screen and you just can’t handle it it’s eating you up on the inside and you know it so stop stalking us you fucking miserable retard enough already.

          • Маразм Клинический

  • Werewolf

    Could be a torn ligament from the bicep as well causing bruising in that area. Appears to have a bit of “popeye muscle” going on there which is indicative of tearing.

  • JubiP

    Regrettably this is pretty indicative of some conversations going on within game industry folks re: proper salary and safety for mo cap people and voice actors who do their own mo cap. If guys who are pretty big and more or less in shape like Kane Hodder can get busted up doing work, it’s not hard to imagine voice actors who spend most of their time in the booth worried about being injured….
