“Hellboy” star tries to reach heaven on the set

Met Doug Jones.

Don’t know him by his name? It’s probably because he is usually dawning some envisaged, mystical outfit as seen in “Batman Returns”, “Pan’s Labyrinth” or even beloved intellectual Abe Sapien in “Hellboy” (currently breaking the bank in theaters).

[Editor’s Note: HiScrivener is highly partial to his other role as THE Silver Surfer. Yeah, Abe is him too. Hey, I’m a dork that loves posting snarky comments and adores Jesus. What can I say?]

At any rate, as betrothed as he is in this movie (and cleaning up at the Box Office because of it), Jones didn’t want the part initially BECAUSE OF HIS FAITH?! I know! But according to the afore-linked story, it’s true.

“Okay I have to respectfully find a way to tell Guillermo I can’t do this movie.” But then Jones, who has some Catholic roots and now refers to himself as a “generic Christian,” reflected on the script further and decided that his faith was actually being “nurtured and challenged” by the storyline.

He even has been seen taking cast members to church, witnessing to his director and praying on the set. Who knows, maybe when he fights Galactus as “The Silver Surfer” [coming to the screen in 2009… get ready, son], he can sing “He’s got the whole world in his hands” as he is blowing him up?! It could happen!

Hey, Mr. Director. Call me.
