Douglas Tait... Monster Buddy

We were very fortunate to meet Douglas Tait when he was starting suit fittings for the upcoming film Knights of Badassdom. That allowed us to follow Douglas through his rehearsals all the way to his first night of shooting. An up-close look at what these actors can go through.

Douglas may be known as "The Monster Man", but to us he's our Monster Buddy.

Douglas Tait

Douglas is originally from Tarzana, California. He has worked as a stuntman, actor/creature performer and filmmaker. Douglas has played a variety of suit roles, including Jason Voorhees, two roles in Land of the Lost, and most recently, "Abominog" in The Knights of Badassdom.
