Ron Perlman Dons The Hellboy Makeup Again For The Make-A-Wish Foundation
I've been waiting for the third Hellboy movie to be made for a while now. Spectral Motion, an effects company that has worked on the Hellboy franchise, decided to make a wish come true for one child for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Once Hellboy star Ron Perlman heard about this, he decided to make this wish even better.
Young Zachary not only wanted to meet Hellboy, he wanted to become him and wear the makeup himself!
Spectral Motion has this to say about the Make a Wish Foundation:
In the past three weeks, Spectral Motion has been honored to host two wonderful Make-A-Wish children, Caleb and Zachary. 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!
This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Now, hopefully we can get the third Hellboy film! But this is just as awesome!
