Ron Perlman

Cult comic-book hero Hellboy faces the fight of his life when an elf prince breaks the ancient truce between the creatures of the underworld and humankind in Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the splendid sequel to Guillermo Del Toro’s 2004 horror fantasy Hellboy. Once again, Ron Perlman plays the cigar-chomping, gun-toting demonic superhero who strives to keep the forces of evil at bay with his fiery girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair) and amphibious buddy Abe Sapien (Doug Jones). They have their work cut out, though, when elf prince Nuada (Luke Goss) threatens to unleash an army of unstoppable mechanical warriors against the human race.
