Mason Cole

Mason Cole

Mason Cole is the main antagonist in the 2002 direct-to-video film Derailed.

He is portrayed by Tomas Arana, who also portrays Greg Portman.

Cole is a terrorist leader who hijacks a train in order to obtain a special virus known as SP-43, which is a form of smallpox. He and his men hold the passengers hostage but one passenger, NATO Operative Jacques Kristoff, manages to subdue Cole's followers and protect his family (who are also onboard the train). Cole attacks Kristoff and after a brief fight, Kristoff traps Cole's leg in the doorway of one of the carriages. He then hooks his tie to the joint carriage and detaches them both, causing the train to separate. As the carriages behind begin to lose speed, Cole, trapped in between, is gradually torn in half.
