Michael Myers in Halloween H20 (Dimension Films)
When Halloween H20 was released in 1998, it continued the storyline of the events from the first two films. It effectively ignored parts 3 through 6, as it was suggested Laurie Strode had died off-screen in those films. H20 brought Jamie Lee Curtis back to reprise the role, having another iconic showdown with Michael Myers exactly twenty years after the first movie was released.
Another new actor came in to play Michael Myers, and guess what? He was a stuntman known as Chris Durand. Durand has done stunt work for over 200 feature films and is still active in the field to this day. But his on-screen roles playing vicious killers will be what he is best known for.
Durand appeared as Ghostface in Scream 2, so he was able to portray two legendary horror movie murderers in his career. He also played one of the main zombies in Resident Evil: Extinction and was the mini-gunner in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Durand has done television as well, playing a plethora of demons shown on the TV series Angel.
