Did Make-Up Effects Artist Play Jason Voorhees In Friday The 13th Part 2?

Production on the sets of Friday The 13th Part 2 was a mixed bag of excitement, exhaustion, and constant change. Much like the angst felt on the set of Friday The 13th 1980 surrounding who would be playing the killer, the crew on Part 2 suffered similar worries on who would be playing Jason from scene to scene.

Our readers are mostly aware of the circumstances surrounding the actors and crew who played Jason Voorhees, which we wrote about on the site previously, but recently, a few fans have been asking about another possible person who could have played the titular character. For a few years now, there has been an awesome shot of special make-up effects artist Carl Fullerton ciculating around the World Wide Web whereas he is applying the essential make-up for the infamous double impalment scene in Friday The 13th Part 2. What some people are now wondering, is if Carl played Jason Voorhees?

If you look at the clothing worn by Carl Fullerton in the behind the scenes image below, it is clear that he is wearing the Jason costume. So it begs the question, when did he play Jason in the film? Since there was a lot of work that went into creating the effects for the double impale death by Carl, it would be natural then that he would want to play Jason Voorhees when the Jeff and Sandra characters are killed. He could hit the mark needed for the effect since he helped create it. Heck, Tom Savini played Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter for the hitchhiker's death scene.

It is a bit of speculation on our part, but it's a logical conclusion considering the photo below. So, we think it's safe to add Carl to the long running list of people who played Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th Part 2. What does everyone think?
