Thread: Ron Perlman
Hey, if John Rys-Davies can be a dwarf, so can HellBoy.
You can expect Del Toro to stick fairly close to the look PJ designed to maintain continuity. Though he will have some leeway to establish his own take on things. And to come back to the topic of this thread, Del Toro will likely find a role for Ron Perlman .
By the way, as a body part myself, I must express my amusement at your clever username Gollums Gallstones.
But I still think he would be good as Beorn or a Dwarf.
I remember him as Vincent in Beauty and the Beast. He could totally pull off Thorin.
I also remember him from "The Name of the Rose". He could totally pull off the Goblin King.
Come to think of it with his voice, he could do Smaug.
As I said previously he could probably do the accents though, as he is apparently a classically trained actor. I just don't see him as a Smaug.
I doubt any of you have EVER seen Teen Titans (not that I blame you) but I used to watch the early episodes as a younger kid.
Ron Perlman does the voice of Slade, the bad guy, and in retrospect Slade had an INCREDIBLY good voice for Smaug. Obviously it'll be tweaked and prodded and given an accent, but I think he could pull it off.
If you don't want to watch this video, it's ok. The video is pretty childish. But the first person to talk in it is Slade. Just listen to it.
Does anyone see what I mean?
His voice was great in the link you posted, Sinister and Smooth indeed. But it's not how I imagine Smaug sounding who is Sinister, but also Sarcastic and Witty.
I REALLY miss this forum! I will be back someday!
