Information on the cameo
Jason Voorhees is the main character of the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th (1980) as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Pamela Voorhees, in which he was portrayed by Ari Lehman. A silent, undead, and unstoppable killing machine, Jason is an iconic madman who haunts Camp Crystal Lake and the surrounding area, slaughtering anyone he encounters by a burning need to avenge the death of his beloved mother. The character has subsequently been represented in various other media, including novels, video games, comic books, and a cross-over film with iconic horror film character, Freddy Krueger.
In the original film, Jason is revealed to have drowned at Camp Crystal Lake, which leads Pamela to accuse the teenage counselors of having sex and leaving Jason unsupervised. She goes on a spree of killing off the counselors, only to be killed by camp worker Alice in the end. At the film's end, while on a boat in the lake, Alice is dragged underwater and presumably killed by a reanimated Jason, who takes up the role of the murderer for the majority of the following films, to avenge his fallen mother.
The character's physical appearance has gone through many transformations, with various special makeup effects artists making their mark on the character's design. The trademark hockey goalie mask did not appear until Friday the 13th Part III, but is seen as a widely recognized image in popular culture. Since Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, filmmakers have given him superhuman strength, regenerative powers, and near invulnerability. He has been seen as a sympathetic character whose motivation for killing has been cited as being driven by the immoral actions of his victims and his own rage over having drowned as a child.
