Belizean native, Arlen Escarpeta, will be appearing in the remake of Friday the 13th movie this Friday, February 13, 2009. The film is a reboot of the Friday the 13th film series, whose last film was the 2003 crossover film Freddy vs. Jason.


Actor Arlen Escarpeta was born on April 9, 1980, in Belize, Central America, and moved to the United States at age three after his father died. Arlen and his mother settled in Los Angeles, where he was enrolled in the Young Saints Scholarship Foundation and graduated from Hollywood High School. He attended Pasadena City College, majoring in sociology. He began his career with guest appearances on the television shows "Boston Public," "Judging Amy" and "The Shield" and had roles in the films "High Crimes," "Show and Tell" and "The Ten." He is most known for his roles as Sam Walker in the TV series "American Dreams" and as Reggie Oliver in the football film "We Are Marshall." In his free time, Arlen draws cartoon characters, reads non-fiction and restores his 1964 Volkswagen Beetle.

In the movie Arlen plays a young man who is spending a weekend in a lake-side cabin, however their seemingly fun weekend soon escalates into a nightmare after lone traveler Clay (Jared Padalecki) shows up looking for his missing sister Whitney and the young adults soon find themselves face to face with evil reborn, re-imagined, and rebooted, and his name is Jason Vorhees. (Watch Arlen’s interview in our Daily Blog).
