First reported by Fighters.com and confirmed by Sylvia's manager Monte Cox, Sylvia is in Boston performing stand-in duties on Platinum Dunes' latest "Friday the 13th" installment, a sequel to their 2009 remake of the morality-smothering 1980s horror franchise. (A sequel of a remake of an 11-part series: Who says there are no more good ideas?)
Sylvia, geared in a hockey mask and filthy hobo apparel, may or may not appear onscreen: Stand-ins typically occupy sets for lighting prior to cameras rolling.
The film is due out next summer.
Update: Who can tell one masked killer from another? As it turns out, Monte Cox erred when he informed ESPN.com/Sherdog.com that Sylvia is acting as a stand-in for a "Friday the 13th" sequel; according to Cox, Sylvia was actually a "back-up" for Michael Myers in "Halloween 2," which opened in theaters last Friday. Currently, he's in Boston shooting "Oxy Morons."
