SWAMP THING Reportedly Casts FRIDAY THE 13th Actor Derek Mears To Play The Earth Elemental

We recently found out that The DC Universe Swamp Thing series would bring the titular creature to life via the use of a "physical costume," and now it looks like we know which actor will be wearing it!

The DC Universe streaming service has reportedly cast Derek Mears to play the titular Earth Elemental in the upcoming Swamp Thing series.

The story comes courtesy of Splash Report, who recently broke the news that Len Wisewman would direct the pilot.

Mears is a 6′ 5″ actor/stuntman, best known for playing Jason Vorhees in the Friday the 13th reboot and Hawes in Hatchet III. He has also appeared in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Flash.

Just so there's no confusion: Mears will play the creature, not Alec Holland, who has yet to be cast.

Mears joins Crystal Reed as Abigail Arcane and Maria Sten as Liz Tremayne. No oiffcial premiere date has been announced.
