Ron Perlman Biography
Ron Perlman’s bigness and distinctive features seem to lend themselves to playing beasts and monsters, as he did in the hit TV series Beauty and the Beast (1987-90) and the feature film versions of the comic book Hellboy (2004 and 2008).
Between 2008 and 2014, Perlman played Clay Morrow, the protagonist-antagonist of the television series Sons of Anarchy (co-starring Charlie Hunnam and Katy Sagal).
Perlman began in the movies in the early ’80s, starring in the serious caveman movie Quest For Fire (1981).
He has worked steadily ever since in TV and feature films; in the ’90s he was a regular voice actor for television cartoons, including Batman: The Animated Series (as Clayface) and The Fantastic Four (as The Incredible Hulk). Perlman’s other television series include Hand of God (2014-17) and StartUp (2017).
Perlman’s best-known movies include The City of Lost Children (1995); The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996, starring Marlon Brando); Alien: Resurrection (1997, starring Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder); Enemy at the Gates (2001, starring Ed Harris); Blade II (2002, starring Wesley Snipes); and Star Trek: Nemesis (2002).
A favorite of filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, Perlman has been tapped for Cronos (1993), the Hellboy movies (and animated features), Pacific Rim (2013) and the TV series Trollhunters.
