10 Things You Didn’t Know About Leatherface

9. Jason Voorhees Briefly Played Him

Texas Chainsaw Massacre
New Line Cinema

Six actors have played the adult Leatherface over the years, but the late Gunnar Hansen from the original movie is by far the fan-favourite.

Interestingly, the man best known for playing Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th series had a brief and unofficial stint behind the mask made from human flesh while Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III was shooting.

Kane Hodder, who you will probably only recognise when he's wearing a hockey mask, was the stunt coordinator on the third entry in the series, and he stood in as Leatherface for former professional wrestler R. A. Mihailoff while some of the more dangerous scenes were being filmed.
