Ron Perlman Makes a Child’s Hellboy Wish Come True

If you didn’t know it already, Ron Perlman is one of the coolest guys on the f’ing planet!

Through the Make A Wish organization a young boy named Zachary got his wish: To not only meet HELLBOY but also to become Hellboy himself.

They contacted the FX company Spectral Motion (the FX company behind the Hellboy creature creations as well as X-Men) and they got in touch with Perlman and together they made it happen.

Here’s the blurb from Spectral Motion from their facebook page:

In the past three weeks, Spectral Motion has been honored to host two wonderful Make-A-Wish children, Caleb and Zachary.

When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman (Hellboy actor) 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, 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!

You can see all the pictures on Spectral Motion’s facebook page and there’s some great ones…

Again, THIS is why Ron Perlman is a god. He’s well known for disliking the extensive makeup job required for (IMHO) his greatest role (no offense, Ron. I just love Hellboy) but he jumps right in and gives it his all.

Oh, and while you’re clicking links… go on over to Make A Wish and if you can’t donate maybe you can volunteer or just spread the word to someone who can. Great people over there.
