Kevin Bacon is an American actor born on July 8th, 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although it was the 1984 teen-drama Footloose that actually launched Bacon into super-stardom, his most notable role in the horror genre took place several years earlier. In 1980, Bacon played the role of Jack Marand, an unlucky camp counselor and murder victim as seen in the Sean S. Cunningham slasher classic Friday the 13th. Though this was Bacon's only work in a slasher film, he has appeared in several projects that delve into the world of the supernatural. In 1990 he played David Labraccio in the thriller Flatliners and in 1999, he played Tom Witzky in the haunting film Stir of Echoes. In 2000, Bacon took on a more sinister part playing Sebastian Cane in the sci-fi/horror film Hollow Man.
