Dick Wieand — who famously portrayed the copycat killer ‘Roy Burns’ in “Friday the 13th: A New Beginning” (1985) — discusses the film and answers horror fan questions at the 2018 Niagara Falls Comic Con.
Dick Wieand is an actor, known for “Friday the 13th: A New Beginning” (1985), “Murder, She Wrote” (1984) and “The In-Laws” (1979). “A New Beginning” follows ‘Tommy Jarvis’ (John Shepherd), who was committed to a mental hospital after the events of “The Final Chapter,” and has grown up constantly afraid that ‘Jason’ (Tom Morga) will return. Jason’s body was supposedly cremated after Tommy killed him. ‘Roy Burns’ (Dick Wieand) uses Jason’s persona to become a copycat killer at the halfway home to which Tommy was moved. Jason appears in the film only through Tommy’s dreams and hallucinations.
