Doug Jones is one of the top actors in a very small Hollywood niche of professionals that specialize in performing in heavy make-up and costumes. His training as a mime and his wispy, easily contorted physique make him well suited for the task. Jones got into mime while attending Ball State University, where he also played the school mascot. He moved out to Los Angeles in 1985, landed a job as the giant moon-faced "Mac Tonight" character in a McDonald's ad campaign, and the rest is history. Since then Jones has been flooded with work, usually in horror, sci-fi and comic-book superhero films. He often works with Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, having played the part of Abe Sapien in the "Hellboy" film series, and the title role of Fauno / Pale Man in "Pan's Labyrinth." He has also appeared in M. Night Shyamalan's "Lady in the Water" and played the Silver Surfer in "4: Rise of the Silver Surfer." Jones sometimes plays roles that require no prosthetics, but are no less visually strange. He portrayed an emaciated 19th century orchid hunter in "Adaptation" and the bizarre, menacing sleepwalker in the remake of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari." Jones got the chance to play a rare speaking role in the independent film "My Name Is Jerry," which was produced at his alma mater. A dramatic comedy about a 40-year-old door-to-door salesman experiencing a mid-life crisis, the film won a handful of festival awards.
