Hellboy, the nightmare

Hellboy: How bad could it have been?
Here’s how bad:

“An executive said to me, ‘What about a regular actor who gets angry and turns into Hellboy?’ ” said del Toro, wrinkling his face in disgust. “I go, ‘That’s … not … very good.
“Then they would say, ‘What if you call him Hellboy and he comes from Hell and all that, but he looks like a guy?’ Then they would suggest things like, ‘Can he have a Hellmobile?’ ‘Can he have a dog? A pet dog that comes from hell and is red?’

Man did they dodge bullets on this thing to get it made.

  1. Wow. The studio execs had trouble with Ron Perlman?! I’ve loved Ron Perlman since “City of Lost Children.” I loved him in “The Last Supper”… He always seemed like a really great actor. He’s got such a neat face. I’ve definitely gotta go see “Hellboy.”
