In the past thirty years, Kane Hodder has appeared in over 200 television shows and movies, becoming a world-renowned stuntman, stunt coordinator and legendary horror film star. Born in Sparks, Nevada, Kane moved to the small island of Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands when he was ten years old. Kwaj, as the locals called it, is only three miles long and a half-mile wide. Kane spent all of his teenage years on this tiny island, leaving after he graduated from high school. Back in the states, Kane accidentally found a love for doing stunts, after seeing a live action stunt show in Universal Studios while visiting a friend. From that day forth, he was set on making a living risking his life.
After a long, treacherous road and one life changing accident, Kane started getting regular work in the industry. Throughout the eighties, Kane did stunts in numerous films along with some bit acting parts. He was also the stunt coordinator for several television shows and movies during this period. As he made a name for himself in the industry, little did he know his life was about to change. After getting the role of Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th series, he went from a stunt man behind the scenes, to an actor known around the world. His performance was so heralded that he was asked to portray the role of Jason in the next three films in the series. With his fate as a horror legend sealed, Kane went on to perform in dozens of other horror movies in the years following the Friday series. In the 2005 Kane landed the lead role of Victor Crowley in the acclaimed Hatchet film series, adding to his horror persona.
Throughout Kane’s career he has appeared in everything from Dukes of Hazard and Wonder Woman in the seventies to several Chuck Norris and Steven Segal films and numerous horror movies in the eighties. In the nineties he worked on such classic films as Seven, Lethal Weapon 3, Enemy of the State, The Last Boy Scout, Demolition Man and Batman Forever, just to name a few. The last decade has seen Kane in the Academy Award winning film, Monster, which he played a role and served as stunt coordinator on. That decade also saw him in the acclaimed Hatchet series and leading roles in over a dozen films including B.T.K and Ed Gein. All of which are documented in his biography.
Currently Kane is working on numerous films, promoting his book and preparing for his upcoming reality television show.
