Doug Jones On <em>Silver Surfer</em> And <em>Green Lantern</em> Movies

The man behind Silver Surfer, Abe Sapien and most recently that creepy looking demon in Legion talks about a solo movie for Surfer as well as the rumors that he will be appearing in the Green Lantern.

Doug Jones was easily the best thing in Fantastic Four 2: Rise Of The Silver Surfer, playing the titular herald of Galactus. He also threatened to steal the Hellboy movies from Ron Pearlman as fish man Abe Sapien. While talking to itsjustmovies, Jones gave some updates on a solo Surfer project and responded to the rumors of his involvement in Martin Cambell's Green Lantern...

“There are still a couple of years left on their option for two more pictures with me, as a three-picture deal is quite standard when starting a franchise-potential character. But with all the “re-boot” talk of the Fantastic Four, I have no idea where that leaves the Silver Surfer end of things. I would love to re-visit this character. I do love Norrin Radd,” said Jones.

Its unlikely that a rebooted FF movie would feature The Silver Surfer first time around, but anythings possible I guess. As far as the rumor of Jones appearing in Green Lantern goes...

“Am I going to play a part in the “Green Lantern” movie? I did hear such a rumor a couple of months ago, but no one has called me regarding this one yet. But if there’s a character I’m right for, I’d be quite interested to hear about it.”

Hear that Cambell? Get Jones on the dog and bone!

Jones will also have a part in Guillermo Del Toro's Hobbit movie, although he is unsure of exactly what part for the moment..

"Let me just quote what “Hobbit” director Guillermo del Toro said when he was asked the same question about me. (Affects a gruff voice with a charming Mexican accent) “I have nothing official to report, but let me say this … if I direct a hemorrhoid commercial, Doug Jones will be in it.” And that was over a year ago with no further news on any casting since. I dare not guess or wish, as I wouldn’t want to set myself up for disappointment if it doesn’t happen. In the meantime, all I can say is that if Guillermo and Peter Jackson will have me, I’d be tickled raw to join the gang at Middle Earth in any role they find appropriate for me."

Here's the trailer for Jones's latest, Legion
