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.
