Plot revealed further, actor talks role
Perhaps as a way of saying ‘thanks’ for the unenviable hours put in under layers of foam latex, Guillermo del Toro is giving character actor Doug Jones a love interest in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.
According to Premiere, “in the follow-up, Hellboy and gang are on a mission to stop the prince of the woodland ghouls, who is hell-bent on retrieving three pieces of a key that will allow him to unlock the might of the Golden Army, a fighting force of invincible metallic soldiers. With two of the pieces already in hand, he must obtain the last from his sister. To divert a war, Hellboy and his troupe must protect the princess, but things get complicated when Abe falls in love with her.”
The actor goes on to tell the site, “Abe Sapien was more of a one-note sort of character [in the first film]. In this one, he is showing more range of character traits. He has got a bit of a love interest this time, which is the first time Abe has ever felt that.”
The sequel is currently under the gun in Budapest where Jones is required to stay until his wraps shooting this October.
Universal releases Hellboy 2: The Golden Army on July 11, 2008.
