Originally I was being considered for playing the role of Jason in the entire film. It was actually between me and Ken. When they took the film to Canada, I was out of luck. There was no way they were going to pay for my flight and hotel stay when Ken was a local.Freddy Vs Jason - Dreaming Jason - Own It Now
Also, Ken is older than me and he was a lot more established in the business than I was at the time. The water sequence took a lot of preparation. They realized that when I got wet, I looked too skinny in the clothes, so they had to bulk me up with pads and extra clothing so it would look like I was still big.

Being with all this extra weight, one eye covered, a machete in one hand, Freddy's head in another hand, and being totally submerged in water, made that scene very difficult.
Also, Ronny Yu wanted me to walk like I was walking on land. He wanted it to look like I could walk through the water without it making me rise to the surface.
To do this effect, they had a rope tied under water that I held onto with my left hand with Freddy's severed head in it alsoand I held myself down on the ground so I could pull myself and walk forward.
