Doug Jones Talks Hellboy 2, Other Projects
On tonight's episode of Behind the Makeup...
Of primary concern to sequel mavens will be the few tidbits Jones shares about the upcoming Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, in which he reprises his role as the rotten egg-loving merman Abe Sapien. Though director Guillermo del Toro is keeping most details under wraps, the article does provide an overview of the film's storyline:
In the follow-up, Hellboy and gang are on a mission to stop the prince of the woodland ghouls, who is hell-bent on retrieving three pieces of a key that will allow him to unlock the might of the Golden Army, a fighting force of invincible metallic soldiers. With two of the pieces already in hand, he must obtain the last from his sister. To divert a war, Hellboy and his troupe must protect the princess, but things get complicated when Abe falls in love with her.
Even if you don't care about Hellboy 2, the article is an interesting read; Jones talks about the roles in Pan's Labyrinth and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer that have made him one of Hollywood's go-to guys for heavily effects-dependent characters, as well as possible upcoming projects. It's relatively long (four "pages"), but well worth the time for film fans. Click on the link below to check it out.
