New Predator Actor Dane DiLiegro Wants to Play Jason Voorhees Next



Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th 2009

Former basketball player turned actor Dane DiLiegro recently completed his role as the Predator in director Dan Trachtenberg’s Prey, a Predator prequel set in 1719. Now that a dream role of his has been accomplished, there’s still one more movie icon he would like to play next.

Before we go any further with this latest article, we just want to let our readers know that Prey is now currently available to watch on the Hulu streaming service.

While speaking with EW recently, DiLiegro revealed that he wants his next character role to be Friday the 13th icon Jason Voorhees:

I retired from basketball just short of three years ago and moved to Los Angeles to start acting. I had two characters in mind that I wanted to do. One was the Predator, the other was Jason Voorhees for Friday the 13th. To this day, I can’t believe that I got the opportunity to portray the Predator. I still can’t believe it.

We are not going to get into all the legal issues with the Friday the 13th franchise as you are probably sick of hearing about it by now, but it’s very unlikely we will get another movie any time soon unless an Victor Miller and Sean S. Cunningham reach an agreement.

Do you think Dane DiLiegro would make a good Jason? If so, would you like to see him get casted as Jason Voorhees if we ever get another Friday the 13th movie? As usual, you can let us know the answers to both questions down in our comments section below this post.
