[Random Cool] Ron Perlman Brings Hellboy Back For Make-A-Wish


Ron Perlman, who played Hellboy in the Guillermo del Toro film adaptations, teamed up with Spectral Motion in order to fulfill the wish of a young boy named Zachary as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. While fans may have been hoping that Perlman would don the costume once again for a new film, this is undeniably touching, and a testament to this man’s character. Zachary made a wish to both meet and become Dark Horse Comics’ famous red demon, and it has been granted. Check out the images of the meeting below.

“Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary’s wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!”

    Mr. Perlman, I can’t describe how much respect you just earned from me. My brother had his wish granted to him a few years back by the Make-A-Wish Foundation and he was ecstatic. You just made that young boy’s day. I can’t thank Make-A-Wish and people like you enough for the kindness that you show these children.

    I suspect there are many more of these kinds of stories that go unreported but it was great to see it and that you posted it

    Ron Perlman is my hero, he needs to Hellboy it up for another movie though. Just sayin.

    Major props and respect to Ron Perlman. His Hellboy character is awesome! Hopefully that little boy gets to see a Hellboy III very soon.
