Kane Warren Hodder, born on 8 April 1955, is an American stuntman, actor and author, who became famous for portraying serial killers in his films, specifically playing the notorious Jason Voorhees in multiple “Friday the 13th” movies, beginning in the 1980s.

Kane Hodder Net Worth $1.5 million

Born in Auburn, California Hodder entered the world of movies at a young age. At the age of 19, he was able to land a small acting role in the film “California Split”, and this became the start of his long career in films and of his net worth.

After doing a couple of movies mainly as a stuntman, in the 1980’s Hodder became an icon among moviegoers when he landed the coveted role of Jason Voorhees of the famed horror movie series “Friday the 13th” – he is the only actor to play the role of Jason in four films of the “franchise, including “Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood”, “Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan”, “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday”, and “Jason X”. The success of these movies also meant the same for Hodder’s career, and increasing his net worth immensely. Playing the nightmare phantom became one of his best known roles up until today.

After playing the role of Jason Voorhees, more movies came streaming in for Hodder. Some of the movies that he made have included “The Hills Have Eyes”, “Time Trackers”, “Hardbodies”, “The Patriot”, “Under Siege”, “The Last Boy Scout”, “Four Rooms”, “A Low Down Dirty Shame”, “Gone in 60 Seconds”, “Wishmaster”, “Se7en”, “Monster”, and “Ghost Town”. The movies that he did through these years have made him one of the most sought-after stuntmen in Hollywood, and certainly helped the increase of his wealth.

Hodder’s success in the “Friday the 13th” franchise continued to work to his advantage years later, when he was cast in more lead villain roles in various movies. These included playing Victor Crowley in the movies “Hatchet” and its two sequels “Hatchet II” and “Hatchet III”. He was also able to perform the stunts for the character Leatherface in the movie “Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III.” His lead villainous roles have also help the continued rise in his net worth.

In 2011, Hodder wrote a book about his life as an actor and stuntman entitled “Unmasked: The True Story of the World’s Most Prolific Cinematic Killer”, the sales of which have also contributed to his net worth.

Today, Hodder is still active in acting and doing stunts. It is reported that he will reprise his iconic role of Jason Voorhees in the new movie “Friday the 13th: The Game.”

In terms of his personal life, Hodder has been married to Susan Murphy since 1984, and together they have two children.

1Attitude is everything when it comes to the character. I'm real natural when it comes to looking scary. If you're not seriously trying to frighten people, then the fear these movies are intended to generate doesn't come across. I truly try to scare the shit out of people all the time. Between takes, in the make-up trailer, you never know when I'm going to scare you.
2[when asked about being a stunt double for actors getting paid a fortune) Not only do they get paid millions of dollars, but then they go on talk shows and say they did all their own stunts. That happens all the time. I've seen actors from movies I've worked saying they did all their own stunts. There is no actor who does all their own stunts, period. Don't listen to any of them. They may do a few of them. Not even Jackie Chan. He probably does the most stunts [himself], though.
3[when asked about the ending of Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)] That was the scene I disliked most, where Jason turns into a little boy at the end of Part VIII. Somehow in Rob Hedden's mind, I think, it was a valid ending and he knew what he wanted, but I don't think it was presented so that people could understand it. I hated that whole ending. And I fought it to the bitter end, but I was overruled. That's why I pushed to ignore that ending when we began Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993).
4[commenting on his exclusion from Freddy vs. Jason (2003)] I won't be unemployed. But I will resent the hell out of the fact that somebody else is wearing that mask.
5[when asked his thoughts on Jason's look in Freddy vs. Jason (2003), in which he did not play Jason] I guess they wanted Jason to look like a skinny little bitch this time.
1Just two years before he played Jason in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), he worked as a stunt coordinator on House (1986), which was produced by the director of the original Friday the 13th (1980), Sean S. Cunningham.
2He is of Norwegian (from his maternal grandfather), English, German, and Swedish descent. His surname originates in England.
3Currently Kane plays the lead role of Victor Crowley in Adam Green's Hatchet series. He is also writing his official biography called, Kill! The True Story of the World's Most Prolific, Cinematic Killer, with author Michael Aloisi. [October 2010]
4His all-time favorite film is The Exorcist (1973), other favorites include Red Hill (2010), Se7en (1995), Monster (2003) and Shutter Island (2010).
5Joel Schumacher wanted him to play as Bane in Batman & Robin (1997).
6Is a fan of Detroit-based underground hip hop group Insane Clown Posse.
7Loves heavy metal music and is good friends with Rob Zombie and Kirk Hammett from Metallica.
8Was set to play Jason Voorhees' father Elias, in two movies. The first was a scene omitted from the script at the last minute of Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993), and the second was from David Schow's script for Freddy vs. Jason (2003).
9Jason was supposed to kick the main character's dog near the climax of Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989). Kane refused, saying Jason may kill people but he's not bad enough to kick a dog.
10The indie-hardcore band "Kane Hodder" was named after him. The band asked permission from Hodder before naming their band such, which he happily granted.
11Says that 13 is a recurring number in his life. The street he lives on has 13 houses. He has appeared in four of the Friday the 13th movies. He wears a size thirteen shoe. And many other things.
12Two sons, named Jace and Reed.
13During his recurring roles as Jason Voorhees, he has often disagreed with directors over things the script originally called for him to do. He's been known to look at the director and say, from behind the mask, "Jason wouldn't do that."
14Despite the roles he often plays (most notably Jason Voorhees), Hodder has often been described as a very friendly man, and loves to meet his fans.
15One of his favorite death scenes from his tenure as Jason Voorhees was the scene in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) where he picks up the girl in the sleeping bag and bashes her into the tree, a scene he recreated in Jason X (2001). Ironically, Kane said that he actually had difficulty pulling the original stunt off because the dummy that was in the bag was heavier than he thought it would be, so he had to re-shoot the scene over and over again because no matter how hard he swung the bag the director kept telling him it didn't look right. On the final take, Kane was so fed up with the situation that he threw bag on the ground and kicked in frustration. That was the shot that ended up in the film.
16Has the word "Kill!" tatooed on the back of his bottom lip.
17Aside from being the only actor to reprise the role of Jason Voorhees, he has also been the only actor to play three of the most infamous horror icons in the history of horror films. Besides playing Jason Voorhees in four different films, he also played Freddy Krueger's gloved hand at the end of Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) and did the stunts for Leatherface in Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990).
18Among his contributions to the Jason Voorhees character, Kane said that Jason should never have to run after his victims, nor would he hurt children and animals.
19He spends time working with children in burn centers.
20One funny story that he likes to tell is that during the filming of Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988), his dressing room was a quarter of a mile down this dirt road. One night filming ended at at 2 a.m. and he was still in the Jason costume, and he decided to walk through the woods on a path to his dressing room. As he was walking someone approached him and asked if he was with the movie. He didn't reply, because he thought it was a pretty stupid question to ask, as he was standing there in full Jason costume. The man asked again, Kane took a little lunge for the guy and grunted. The guy took off, tripping and running. The next day director John Carl Buechler told Kane that the local sheriff was supposed to stop by, but he never showed.
21A good portion of his body was burned badly in a stunt mishap during the late 1970s. He suffered third degree burns over 50% of his body.
22At the time of its release, he said Jason X (2001) was his favorite Friday the 13th in which he played Jason. In the years that followed, he changed his mind and stated that Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) is his favorite, though he stills says that "Jason X" is the best written and best-made film in the series.
23Says he's been told he was the largest baby ever born in Auburn, California (11 pounds, nine ounces).
24He played Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) to Jason X (2001).
