Derek Mears, who played Jason Voorhees in 2009’s Friday the 13th, has been cast as Swamp Thing for the DC Universe series, according to multiple reports.

Splash Report and Bloody Disgusting are both reporting the news of Mears as Swamp Thing. They say that Mears will just play the Swamp Thing creature, and not his human alter ego Alec Holland.

Earlier this week, Swamp Thing writer Gary Dauberman said that the series will be “hard R” with “with “graphic violence” and “adult themes”. Given Mears’ history as Jason Voorhees, it seems like he’ll fit in nicely.
