INT: Ron Perlman
If you take a look at Ron Perlman on IMDB.com, you will see that he has over one-hundred and fifty credits to his name. I personally first took notice of him when he appeared opposite Linda Hamilton in the CBS series “Beauty and the Beast”. He has continued to play numerous character roles throughout the years, but none quite as popular as Hellboy. Director Guillermo del Toro has found a way to really capture Ron’s humor and his strength, and all the cool things that make him such an interesting actor.
When I sat down with him at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, I was actually taken aback. He is serious, but not at all pretentious. It is strange to see him as Hellboy, and then meet him face to face and see the classically trained actor in person. We talked about how he connects to the “outside looking in”” that Ron understands very well, and we also talked about the humor in the films, which really makes Red a far more interesting character. And speaking of Red, make sure you check out HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY this Friday at a theatre near you.
