Respected and admired by both actors and filmmakers, Hodder also tends to appear in small roles in films like Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects" and Patty Jenkins's "Monster," usually as a security guard, police officer, or some other kind of role that suitably matches his six foot, four inch frame.
