NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: Today at Paramount's DVD luncheon commemorating the release of Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood and Part VII: Jason Takes Manhattan, actor Kane Hodder, who played Jason Voorhees in both films, made a surprising revelation about the trailer for Jason Takes Manhattan, a perennial favorite among fans of the series. "This is the first time I've ever said it: that's not me," he announced. "We were shooting in Vancouver, that was done on the Jersey side of Manhattan, and I don't know who it is."

Hodder was first cast in The New Blood and stayed with the series for four installments, including the two New Line iterations Jason Goes to Hell and Jason X. Hodder said that not only was he not the hockey-mask-wearing manic in question when that teaser was shot, but he didn't feel like the actual performer played the character accurately.
