Perlman, Ron

When it comes to Ron Perlman, genre fans have already seen both leontine Vincent of the 1980s Beauty and the Beast TV series, and Hellboy of the more recent big-screen franchise taken from the cult graphic novels, when it comes to standout performances. In between those iconic roles, Perlman also put his talents as a character actor able to maneuver under heavy makeup to the test when he appeared as the Reman leader known only as the Viceroy, Praetor Shinzon’s right-hand man, in the final TNG movie, Star Trek Nemesis.

Perlman's other many genre roles include Sleepwalkers, Cronos, The City of Lost Children, The Island of Dr. Moreau, Alien: Resurrection, Blade II and Mutant Chronicles.
