Deep Space Nine’s Nana Visitor is headed into horror movie history. In a ScreenGeeks interview conducted at StarFest in Denver over the weekend, Visitor revealed that she will be playing Pamela Voorhees, the mother of Jason the hockey-mask wearing serial killer in the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th. Visitor also talked about her upcoming guest spot on Battlestar Galactica.
Visitor confirming she will be Jason’s mom in the remake:
[Friday the 13th SPOILERS]
I will be in it just long enough to get decapitated, have my fingers cut off and have him cradling my head.
She said she ‘prepared’ by getting a mold made of her head, which she said was ‘no fun.’
Visitor is stepping into the role first played by Betsy Palmer in the 1980 original Friday the 13th. More on the remake at the IMDB Page.

Visitors loves BSG …and Night Court
The interview covers other areas of Visitor’s career, including her various guest TV spots. When asked what shows she has guested on that she would have liked to be a regular on, she said…
Yes, Battlestar Galactica, I would have set up tent. I was really impressed with that show. And another one, and this was years ago, was Night Court.
Visitor will be seen in the 6th episode of BSG, “Faith” airing May 9th.
