"I kill people in this movie. I know, it's a stretch."
— Exit 33 Commentary
Kane Hodder is a stuntman who also has done some acting roles, most famously in Friday the 13th films as Jason Voorhees.He has notably stated he can vomit on command. He was also a guest investigator in Ghost Adventures.
Tropes applicable to the man:
- Awesome McCool Name: Seriously, just say it out loud. Kane Hodder.
- Bad Ass: The man survived a horrific motorcycle accident that left him with massive third-degree burns and subsequent botched recovery (it's why he works with burn victims - he knows what it was like).
- Beard of Evil: Conveniently sports one, much like fellow go to film villain actor, Tim Curry.
- Juggalo: He even has a modified version of the "Hatchet Man" logo on his forearm, replacing the Hatchet with a machete.
- Mean Character, Nice Actor: Reported to be a friendly man, who works with children at burn centers, and also quite kind and amicable towards his fans in conventions and the like.
- Name of Cain: Pretty amusing for the guy who's most well known role is a serial killer.
- Stunt Double: His main job, though often he's one of the lead roles in his slasher films.
- Squick: He can vomit on command.
- At one point he decided to go into detail about this in the audio commentary for Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan. He mentions that the scene where Jason vomits was done by him drinking a gallon of water an hour before the shoot and regurgitating what was left during the scene.
- Troll: He once used his Jason costume to scare a man between shots in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood.
