Ron Perlman On Conan The Barbarian and Hellboy 3!

Ron Perlman On <i>Conan The Barbarian</i> and <i>Hellboy 3</i>!

Ron Perlman talks about portraying Conan's father in the upcoming film and says that he is hoping for a third Hellboy in order to finish the story the way it was meant to be.

Carla Hey from The Examiner recently caught up with famed SciFi actor Ron Perlman while he was in New York City promoting Season of the Witch. In an exclusive interview he discussed many topics ranging from his current film Season of the Witch, his acclaimed television series Sons of Anarchy and his first film Quest For Fire.

The portion of the interview we as CBM fans would be interested in, would of course be the part where they discuss Conan and a possible Hellboy 3.

What can you say about your role in the 2011 remake of "Conan the Barbarian"?

I play Conan’s father. There’s big-time sword action. But I’m only in the movie for 10 minutes. I can’t tell everything, but the first sequence is huge. It’s epic. All I can tell you is that I work with the Conan who’s 11 years old. And there’s a jump cut to Conan the adult, and I’m no longer on the scene. I don’t want to give away anything.

I never worked with [Jason] Momoa, who’s the adult Conan. I only worked with this kid [Leo Howard], who’s a phenomenal actor. And he’s like a North American champion of swords since he was 4 years old. He had a black belt [in martial arts] by the time he was 4. He’s a swordsman and he’s mind-boggling. He made me look like a piker.


You’re expected to work with filmmaker Guillermo del Toro on "Hellboy 3" and "At the Mountains of Madness." What’s the status of those movies?

He was trying to do "Mountains of Madness." That’s been his number-one labor-of-love movie that he’s been trying to do for a number of years. I think that was the one he identified as the next one he’d like to do. Because I’ve been away working and he’s been away doing other stuff, I haven’t had a chance to catch up with him personally to see everything’s going and where everything is at.

I hope there’s a third "Hellboy," simply because he always thought of it as a trilogy. And when he set up that [Liz Sherman, Hellboy’s love interest] is pregnant with twins at the end of "Hellboy 2," he kind of sketched out what the third "Hellboy" movie would look like. It’s so theatrical. It’s so epic. It’s so dark.

And also, we have to find out about the Hellboy destiny. It’s written in stone that he’s going to destroy mankind. That’s what he’s been brought to Earth to do. So the whole dialogue between nurture and nature gets to live itself out in the third "Hellboy" movie. But if there’s no third one, then the audience doesn’t get to see any of that.


Well, there are lots of people who are hoping there will be a "Hellboy 3."

I hope so too. It’s worth doing.
