Friday the 13th with Derek Mears

I Was There Too #19 July 8, 2015

Derek Mears portrayed one of the most famous slashers of all time, Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th. Derek joins Matt to talk about his action hero/cartoon character approach to the character, identifying with the young Tommy in Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter, and why the original ending of the film didn’t test well with audiences. Derek also tells us about encountering a curious Harrison Ford while on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, how he became a Classic Predator in Predators, and his experimental live improv action show The Resistance. Plus, Matt investigates which fictional character from cinema has killed the most people in a new segment called I Was Scared Too. The Resistance is a completely improvised action movie performed live on stage every Sunday night at 9pm at The Comedy Sportz Theater in Los Angeles.
