Doug Jones is one of the most brilliant monster actors of our time — some say he is this generation’s Boris Karloff! Fans long remember Doug for his work as the Silver Surfer in FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER. He’s also the life and soul of Abe Sapien in HELLBOY and HELLBOY II THE GOLDEN ARMY (based on the popular Dark Horse comic book for director Guillermo del Toro)!
In the film he wants to be remembered for, the Oscar-winning PAN’S LABYRINTH (“El Laberinto del Fauno”), Jones portrays two characters: Pan (the faun creature) and The Pale Man. Little known trivia fact: He learned all his lines for the film in Spanish while comparing it to a special script prepared for him in English! Another fan favorite is the Halloween classic HOCUS POCUS, in which Jones plays the goofy zombie ex-boyfriend of Bette Midler, Billy Butcherson. His earliest comic book movie appearance was alongside Danny DeVito as a faded circus clown in BATMAN RETURNS.
In addition to these popular films, you can also find Doug Jones as the very smart alien Cochise on TNT’s critically acclaimed series FALLING SKIES. Other notable TV guest roles include William Barrow on TEEN WOLF, Grady Edlund on FEAR ITSELF, Dominique Wilkins on THE NEIGHBORS, and the lead Gentleman on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Emmy-nominated “Hush” episode. Look for him as Lt. Saru in the upcoming series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY!
