Ron Perlman Returns As Hellboy To Make A Young Boy's "Make-A-Wish" Come True

Ron Perlman Returns As Hellboy To Make A Young Boy's "Make-A-Wish" Come True

Here's a lovely story for you! While fans would love to see Ron Perlman return to the big screen as Hellboy, he has once again donned the make-up and prosthetics to make a child's wish come true. Hit the jump for details and photos.

SuperHero Hype spotted the following story and photos over at the Spectral Motion Facebook page. Zachary wanted to meet and become Hellboy, and when Ron Perlman heard about it, he was more than happy to return as the character in order to make the young boy's dream come true. For more details on the Make-A-Wish foundation, click HERE [US] or HERE [UK]. More photos can be found by clicking on the link below.

In the past three weeks, Spectral Motion has been honored to host two wonderful Make-A-Wish children, Caleb and Zachary. Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary's wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!

Perlman rocks! I'd love to see him in Game of Thrones. We need Hellboy 3 as well.
KnobGoblin - 7/6/2012, 2:48 PM
That's really cool of Ron to do that. They need to get rolling on HellBoy 3 soon.
ABLEE337 - 7/6/2012, 2:49 PM
I love Karl Urban but I wish Ron Perlman was Dredd.
BANE5000 - 7/6/2012, 2:50 PM
This how u tell hes an actor even for the youngest of fans...this is just like how last year johnny Depp went to a kids school dress as Jack Sparrow after the kid wrote him a letter bout how is life like for a pirate :]
BatSupe3 - 7/6/2012, 2:50 PM
I love the Make-A-Wish foundation, and I really love when celebrities meet the kids, but I think Ron Perlman really takes the cake by actually agreeing to come as Hellboy and getting all the make-up. Makes the world seem brighter.
DoomXfactor - 7/6/2012, 2:52 PM
They should make Hellboy 3 for Zachary
carrowsboy - 7/6/2012, 2:53 PM

Funny that a demonic looking character makes the world brighter. How did that happen?
HulkbusterNYC - 7/6/2012, 2:55 PM
@GMomey84 Perlman would be a fantastic addition to the GOT ensemble for sure! He's a phenomenal actor and a really good dude for going out of his way to get all Hellboy-ed up for a great cause. Way to be Ron!
