All the time that I was interviewing C.J. Graham, I wondered to myself "What does it take to get into the right mindset to play a homicidal maniac?" Then, I realized, well, I used to work for one, so why not draw on that? But I think it would have been really cool if C.J . was my boss, if I worked for a casino. Imagine this conversation:
Angry Patron: " Let me speak to your manager!!"
Sherpa: " Nooooo problem!"
But , C.J. was a true delight. The character of Jason Voorhees is such an iconic figure in the world of horror, and it brings him such pride to have portrayed him. He comes across as a guy who's really had his priorities straight, and knows what's important, on-screen and off, which I really admired. Maybe we'll see him in a role where you can actually see his face? He's actually more handsome than your Sherpa. (Okay, I better rephrase that, I don't want to insult the guy. He does use a machete better than I do my Veg-O-Matic. Kids, just ask your parents to explain that one.) C.J, I hope you enjoy your retirement, but if the big or small screen comes calling, I'm sure you'll chop, ummm, knock, 'em dead! Thanks again! See you Rebels on Wednesday!
