C.J. Graham was spotted as a potential Jason Voorhees for Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives when he was playing Jason in a night club act, impressing the casting people who were in search of a new Jason since the current Jason actor Dan Bradley wasn’t coming across as imposing or powerful as they had hoped for. C.J. played Jason in all scenes and stunts except for the Paintball scene which they had already filmed with Bradley which marks the third instance of 2 actors portraying Jason in the same film.
Graham reprised this role in the video for Alice Cooper’s “He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask)”, which was written for and featured in the film which blends footage from the film with some new footage.
As of 2017, Graham has only played one other role – he appeared in the horror film Highway to Hell as the main antagonist, a heavily made-up, silent monster called the Hell Cop. He has been known to speak highly of his time as Jason, even claiming that he would reprise the role in another film if asked.
C.J. Graham will be appearing both days.
