      Derek Mears

      Highest Rated: 100% The Aggression Scale (2012)

      Lowest Rated: 12% The Hills Have Eyes 2 (2007)

      Birthday: Apr 29, 1972

      Birthplace: Bakersfield, California, USA

      Tall, bald and imposing, American actor Derek Mears has crafted a career out of portraying bad guys in film and on television, often under heavy makeup. A native of Southern California, he headed to Hollywood and started winning minor roles, as well as stuntman gigs. After a few years of TV work, Mears began playing aliens and other odd creatures in films such as "Men in Black II" (2002). In 2007, he portrayed one of the violent mutants in "The Hills Have Eyes 2," and he subsequently got his big break when he was called upon to don the hockey mask of iconic serial killer Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot of "Friday the 13th." Though he wasn't able to immediately follow the movie up with other roles of that caliber, Mears went on to significant parts in other major productions, including the fantastical "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" (2013), solidifying his name as a go-to guy with an entertainingly ominous presence.
