Ron Perlman Talks About His Early Career, Taking on Makeup-Heavy Roles Like ‘Hellboy’

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood has long recognized Ron Perlman for being unrecognizable. Some of his most iconic roles — including “Hellboy,” “Quest of Fire” and the late-1980s CBS series “Beauty and the Beast” — required extensive, transformative makeup and prosthetics. The actor is returning to television, a medium he describes as “the one area where the storytelling is really rich, really deep and really human,” to join the Crackle drama “Startup” in the series’ second season, which premieres Sept. 28. Perlman’s initial break in the industry came not from television or film, but in the Tommy Tune-directed stage musical “Sunset,” which led to his first mention in Variety on Oct. 5, 1977.

What was it like auditioning for Tommy Tune?

I was wired early in my career for failure. So anytime anyone liked what I did, much less actually hired me, it was a shock. Tommy Tune was a singular validation that I had never experienced before.

The ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Desperately Wants You to Forget About the Guillermo del Toro Movies

23 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Despite all the attention that the franchise has been getting over the past year, it’s hard out there for a Hellboy fan.  They’ve gone from the best possible version of this franchise – celebrated the world over for its unique and gripping setting and eclectic cast of unconventional characters – to a reboot that nobody asked for, and even fewer wanted in the first place. And it looks like no amount of controversy or fan outrage will deter Lionsgate from the path they’ve chosen.  From cleaning house on the first films’ crew to whitewashing key characters, there seems to be

22 September 2017 6:26 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ron Perlman might not be making anymore Hellboy movies, but director Guillermo Del Toro did spin out one of that truncated franchise’s most captivating scenes into its own book and TV series. Netflix’s Trollhunters looks largely inspired by the troll market scene in Hellboy II: The Golden Army, a foundation that has…

20 September 2017 10:42 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After the heartbreaking loss of her beloved Ducky in August, Selma Blair has welcomed home a new love in her life — Cappuccino Houston (or Cappy, for short).

The Legally Blonde actress shared a sweet photo of her son Arthur Saint, 6, hugging their new addition.

“And so we have begun another dog love adventure,” Blair, 45, wrote in the caption. “Cappuccino Houston (Cappy) entered our lives a few weeks ago. She is a shy dog, and much patience and work is being done. But, already bonded with Arthur, she is a kind and dear girl.”

Shape of Water Has a Shocking Human / Fish Monster Sex Scene

18 September 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It is very early in the fall movie season, but that means we are starting to see some potential Oscar contenders emerge. A few movies have been getting a ton of awards season buzz on the festival circuit already, with Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water being one of the most discussed and critically-praised movies making the rounds thus far. And it just so happens that the movie features a crazy sex scene.

Warning: spoilers ahead for The Shape of Water. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Doug Jones, who plays the fish monster in question, spoke about The Shape of Water and the bizarre sex scene. Jones has worked with Guillermo Del Toro frequently in the past, portraying Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movies, in addition to having parts in Pan's Labyrinth and Crimson Peak. Despite their excellent established relationship, Del Toro was hesitant when it came »

Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) : What was Hot and What Won

18 September 2017 10:49 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Tiff has come and gone. Masses of Canadians attend the festival which is what gives it such a special atmosphere. In Cannes, only the industry attends the festival; the public sets up chairs and ladders to watch the red carpet galas and take pictures. But here the public is as much a part of the festival as the industry.Tiff Bell Lightbox

The industry action which consists of buying and selling of film rights takes place at the Hyatt Hotel on King Street West. The screenings for both public and industry are down the street at the Tiff Bell Lightbox and around the corner at the Scotia Multiplex. The dense mingling of public and industry at these venues and on the street itself which is closed to traffic for the first weekend but is open to pedestrians, photo-op spots, food trucks creates a festive bevvy of activity to the city. »

What Do We Need from the Hellboy Reboot?

17 September 2017 4:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Source: Fashion and Action via Facebook

As news about American Gods actor Ian McShane’s role in the new Hellboy reboot surfaces, more and more questions are being asked about the future of the Hellboy franchise. Many fans spoke out about original Hellboy actor, Ron Perlman, and their anger seeing the rough and tumble man kicked to the curb, but were at least relieved to see a fitting replacement in Stranger Things star David Harbour, an actor similarly known for his gruff demeanor. 

Source: Medina Maitreya via Facebook

The new movie will pit the big, red cat lover against the Blood Queen, the ruling witch queen over all the witches of England. As the original two films with Perlman focused on Rasputin, a main villain of the series, the sorcerer’s time in the comics ended fairly early. 

The blood queen, however, played her role near the end of the standalone Hellboy series, »

Doug Jones talks creating a "sexy" monster in Shape of Water

The Shape Of Water is already earning rave reviews, with critics citing the beauty of the romance between a woman who cannot speak – played by Sally Hawkins – and an aquatic fishman – played by Guillermo del Toro mainstay Doug Jones. The man has been in numerous del Toro films, including as Fauno in Pan’S Labyrinth and Abe Sapien in Hellboy. He gets to play a vastly... Read More »

Holy Hell: See the First Photo of Stranger Things Star David Harbour as Hellboy

15 September 2017 9:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Lionsgate and Getty / J. Kempin The first official look at the Hellboy reboot is here, and we have to say that we're pleasantly surprised. Stranger Things star David Harbour is taking over for Ron Perlman in the film, due out in 2018, and it looks like the character has gotten a few updates to how he looked in the 2004 and 2008 originals. The demonic hero appears to have ditched his trademark trenchcoat and grown out his hair, for starters. And how about that Right Hand of Doom? Instead of the traditional stone fist that Hellboy uses to battle the occult, the new one looks like it's made out of some kind of metal (and has taken quite the beating). In addition to Harbour, the reboot stars Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen, Merlin's consort who wants to bring about the end of the world (Nbd). Hellboy journeys to England »

'The Shape of Water' Star on Crafting a "Sexy" Monster With Guillermo del Toro

15 September 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Director Guillermo del Toro has spent a career bringing monsters to life onscreen.

In his latest film, The Shape of Water, hitting theaters Dec. 8, del Toro reunites with his go-to man behind the mask, Doug Jones. The actor has starred in five of del Toro's previous films (Mimic, HellboyHellboy II, Pan's Labyrinth and Crimson Peak) as well as the director's FX television »

Trailer Watch: Sally Hawkins Faces Off Against Michael Shannon in Fairy Tale “The Shape of Water”

15 September 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Shape of Water

Excitement is building for “The Shape of Water.” Described by many critics as a fairy tale for adults, “Pan’s Labyrinth” writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s latest film just won the Venice Film Festival’s top prize, the Golden Lion, and scored rave reviews out of Telluride and the Toronto International Film Festival. For those of us who haven’t been able to catch the film at a fest, a newly released red band trailer will help tide us over until the thriller hits theaters December 8.

Set against the backdrop of Cold War era U.S. circa 1963, “The Shape of Water” stars Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”) as Elisa, a lonely and isolated woman who works at in a hidden, high-security government laboratory. The film’s first trailer revealed that she’s “mute and can hear everything, and that Elisa forms an intense connection with a mysterious creature (Doug Jones, “Hellboy”) being held captive in the lab for classified experiments. But much stands between Elisa and the creature’s happy ending — including the fact that one particularly awful lab employee, Strickland (Michael Shannon, “Loving”), is determined to take the creature apart to learn how it works.

This new spot gives a clearer impression of just how menacing Strickland is. “You deliver. That’s what you do. Right? Right?” he says to his reflection in the mirror. We also catch a glimpse of him interrogating Octavia Spencer, who plays Elisa’s co-worker and friend. “He’s coming for you,” she tells Elisa. “You’ve gotta go now and you’ve gotta take that thing with you.”

“It’s monster-led but it’s more ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ as it were,” Hawkins has said of “The Shape of Water.”

The highlight of the trailer comes when Elisa sends Strickland a well-deserved message. Check out the video to see what’s on her mind.

Vanessa Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” “Hope Springs”) co-wrote “The Shape of Water” with del Toro.

First Look at David Harbour as Hellboy

15 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

They say first impressions are everything, and from this impression we get the feeling that David Harbour as Hellboy is going to kick some major tail. Let’s not forget that Ron Perlman brought the character to life not all that long ago and managed to at least put a good look on the big guy, but this version seems to be upgraded and even renovated in a way. He still has the classic horns that are ground down, he has the massive, red-skinned body, and of course he has the enormous, rock-like right hand that’s supposed to serve a well-defined

New Red Band Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape Of Water Debuts

14 September 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Guillermo del Toro’s movies are always a treat for the eyes, but his latest effort looks like it’s aiming to tug at the heartstrings as well. The first trailer for The Shape of Water teased a love story of the unlikeliest kind – between a mute cleaner and a humanoid sea creature. Now, we have our best look at the film yet with this red band trailer that teases lots of drama, danger and intrigue to come.

We learn that the creature is “the most sensitive asset ever to be housed” at a secret facility in the 1960s. So naturally, Michael Shannon’s boss Colonel Strickland is not happy when Sally Hawkins’ Elisa smuggles the monster out. Not happy is putting it a bit lightly, actually, as the trailer shows that Strickland will stop at nothing in order to get his secret weapon against the Soviets back under lock and key. »

Hellboy Star Daniel Dae Kim Responds to Whitewash Casting Controversy

14 September 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot avoided a potential disaster, when Ed Skrein graciously bowed out from playing Major Ben Daimio, upon learning the character is an Asian-American in the comics, leading to the casting of Daniel Dae Kim this week. Daniel Dae Kim has now released a statement, thanking Ed Skrein for doing the right thing, after his casting sparked a whitewashing outcry from the fans. Here's what Daniel Dae Kim had to say in thanking the producers of Hellboy and Ed Skrein for how he handled this situation.

"I applaud the producers and, in particular, Ed Skrein for championing the notion that Asian characters should be played by Asian or Asian American actors. He could not have addressed the issue more elegantly and I remain indebted to him for his strength of character."

The actor gave his statement to The Hollywood Reporter, where he also confirmed that, not only is his deal finalized, »

If you only know David Harbour from Stranger Things, or from anything else, really, then you'll be amazed by his first appearance as the new Hellboy. Behold the debut look at the actor in all his devilish glory: Harbour kinda looks like Ron Perlman's version of the comic book character, who previously led two eponymous movies from Guillermo del Toro. There are little but notable differences, however, such as that long hair and more robotic-looking "Right Hand of Doom." The way he's photographed gives him a darker tone as well, which is fitting since the reboot promises more of an edge. While we're staring at this red hunk of cinematic beauty, here's a recap of everything we know about the next Hellboy movie: Who is taking over the...

Shape of Water Red Band Trailer Unleashes R-Rated Monster Mayhem

14 September 2017 8:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will a Fishman sweep the Oscars? That's the buzz around Hollywood as more and more people get a look at Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water. A new R-rated red band trailer has arrived, and it unleashes the monster at the heart of this tale in its full glory. There is no mystery left in discovering what it looks like once you buy the ticket. Which is a shame, but that's the way these things work nowadays.

Some wondered why The Shape of Water needed to be R-Rated in the first place. There is a great scene between bad guy Michael Shannon and star Sally Hawkins that is suitable for open-minded families with a sense of humor, but goes just a little above the call of a PG-13 rating. It looks like a scene that will be cheered by crowds in a large theater, and it would have been shameful to cut. »
