Warrington Gillette was born on October 7, 1960 in Maryland, USA. He is an actor, known for Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), Time Walker (1982) and Penny Dreadful (2005).
Gillette is the second actor to play Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th (1980) film series, but was not the first one to wear the hockey mask (that was Richard Brooker in part 3). He originally auditioned for the role of Paul in Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), which went to John Furey, but director Steve Miner was impressed with him, so he offered him the part of Jason instead. Although credited as Jason in Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981), he only played the character in the final scene where he jumps through the window. For most of the film, Jason was played by Steve Dash.
Gillette is now a Wall Street banker.
