Ron Perlman Biography

Height: 6' 1" (1.85 m)
Wiki Biography: Ron Perlman, a classically trained actor, has appeared in countless stage plays, feature films and TV productions. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Opal, and their two children, Blake and Brandon. He was born in Washington Heights, Manhattan, New York. His mother, Dorothy, still lives there and is retired from the City Clerk's Office. His father, now deceased, was a repair man and a drummer with Artie Shaw's Band. With a career spanning over three decades, Perlman has worked alongside such diverse actors as Marlon Brando, Sean Connery, Dominique Pinon, Brad Dourif, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Jude Law, Christina Ricci, Federico Luppi, Sigourney Weaver, Michael Wincott, and Elijah Wood to name a few. While he has never been a bankable star, Perlman has always had a large fan-base. He started out strong as Amoukar, one of the tribesmen in Jean-Jacques Annaud's Academy Award-winning film Quest for Fire (1981), for which he got a Genie nomination. Perlman teamed up with Annaud again in '86, this time as a hunchback named Salvatore in The Name of the Rose (1986). His first real breakthrough came later, when he landed the role of Vincent, the lion-man, opposite Linda Hamilton in the cult-series "Beauty and the Beast" (1987). His work in this role earned him not only a Golden Globe Award, but a underground fan following. Sadly, the show got cancelled in its third season shortly after Hamilton's character's death. After that, he spent time doing supporting work on TV and independent films such as Guillermo del Toro's debut Cronos (1993) (where a lifelong friendship and collaboration between the director and Perlman would blossom) as 'Angel' and his first lead role as 'One' in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's surreal The City of Lost Children (1995). His first real big role in a mainstream film came when Jeunet wanted him for the brutish 'Johner' in his first Hollywood outing Alien: Resurrection (1997). Perlman has also used his distinctive voice to his advantage, appearing in many animated films/series, commercials and he is a video game fan favorite because of his work on such games as the Fallout: A Post-Nuclear Role-Playing Game (1997) (VG) series. It wasn't until much later he got worldwide fame when his good friend Guillermo del Toro helped him land the title role in the big-budget comic book movie Hellboy (2004). del Toro fought the studio for 4 years, because they wanted a more secure name, but he stood his ground and in 2004, after almost 25 years in and out of obscurity, Perlman became and household name and a sought out actor. Perlman has had one of the most off-beat careers in film, playing everything from a prehistoric ape-man to an aging transsexual, and will always be a rarity in Hollywood. Other notable roles include the cunning 'Norman Arbuthnot' in The Last Supper (1995), sniper expert 'Koulikov' in Enemy at the Gates (2001), vampire leader 'Reinhardt' in Blade II (2002), his reprisal of 'Hellboy' in Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) and biker chief 'Clarence Morrow' in the popular series "Sons of Anarchy" (2008).
