Alot of times when I mask, I just use Layer Masks. That way you can Expand/Contract and Gaussian Blur the mask easily- to get the effects you really want...
I didn't mask. Its just Rod in a layer by himself on top of the image of Rod behind him. I lowered the hue/saturation down -100 and -180 and added a bit of noise with a small gaussian blur. I think put the layer of Rod by himself from the original image in full color by himself.
