Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Long a fixture in the worlds of fantasy and science fiction, both as an actor and a voiceover artist for video games and animation, Ron Perlman was best known for playing the wise-cracking, cigar-chomping demon paranormal investigator Hellboy in Guillermo del Toro's 2004 and 2008 comic-book adaptations. Prior to that, Perlman built a solid fan base as Vincent, the misunderstood Beast on the popular series "Beauty and the Beast" (CBS, 1987-1990), while enjoying a steady stream of supporting roles as both villains and sympathetic sidemen in films such as "Alien Resurrection" (1997) and "Star Trek: Nemesis" (2002). Because of his lion-like features, Perlman's early career was often defined by roles that required heavy makeup that left the actor unrecognizable in public. But everything changed when he starred on the hit cable series "Sons of Anarchy" (FX, 2008-14), in which he played an aging, but no less bad-ass, head of a Hell's Angels-like motorcycle club. Perlman translated the success of that show onto big-screen roles in films such "Season of the Witch" (2011), "Conan the Barbarian" (2011) and "Drive" (2011), which helped give the middle-aged actor a boost later in his career. ...
