David Harbour Was Advised By Friends To Not Take The Role Of HELLBOY In The Upcoming Reboot Film

Prominent nerd friends of actor David Harbour advised him to step away from the role of Hellboy. Did their suggestions make him question his decision?

In June of 2017 it was announced Stranger Things actor David Harbour would be taking on the role of Hellboy in a planned movie reboot.  Two previous Hellboy films were made in 2004 and 2008 starring Ron Perlman in the title role.

Recently while talking with Heat Vision, Harbour revealed he was advised to step away from the role, saying "I was approached by some very prominent nerds whom I know very well, and I respect their opinions because they're friends of mine, who were like, 'Dude, step away from the Hellboy. Step away.'"

Harbour, who expected the reaction from fans didn't let their opinions sway him, saying "I can like Michael Keaton's Batman and I can like Christian Bale's Batman. I can like Jack Nicholson's Joker and I can like Heath Ledger's Joker. There's other Joker's I don't have to like." Harbour says his version of Hellboy will be a unique take that will be closer to the Dark Horse Comics character.
