Doug Jones This multi-award winning actor is possibly the most famous person you’ve never seen. After a 25 year career under heavy make-ups, but in memorable roles such as the goofy zombie ‘Billy Butcherson’ in Hocus Pocus, Doug Jones was thrust to the forefront as the blue fish-man sidekick, ‘Abe Sapien’, in Hellboy.
He took this kind of work to new heights with his award-nominated dual roles as ‘Pan’ and the ‘Pale Man’ in the multi-Oscar winning Pan’s Labyrinth. He also played the ‘Silver Surfer’ in Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and the award-winning performance reprising ‘Abe Sapien’ in Hellboy II: The Golden Army. His favorite movies as a “human” are the sweet, underdog title role in My Name Is Jerry, and as a proper butler in the inspirational The Ultimate Legacy. You can also see Doug’s special haunting roles in Legion, Quarantine, John Dies At the End, the award-winning French biopic Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, The Bye Bye Man, Star Trek: Discovery, and the Academy Award-winning The Shape of Water.
This is the niche that garnered Doug Jones a coveted slot in Fangoira Magazine’s Hall Of Fame.
Critics have loved his TV work in the highly praised ‘Skin & Bones’ episode of NBC’s Fear Itself, and as the lead ‘Gentleman’ in Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s ‘Hush’ episode. Doug has also enjoyed playing ‘Dominique Wilkins’ in ABC’s comedy The Neighbors, the lead ‘Ancient’ vampire in Guillermo del Toro’s FX series The Strain, DC Comics’ supervillain ‘Deathbolt’ in the CW’s Arrow and The Flash, and the helpful alien ‘Cochise’ in the final 3 seasons of Steven Spielberg’s TNT series Falling Skies.
The newer medium of Web Series has been good to Doug with series regular, recurring, and guest roles on the popular shows The Guild, Dragon Age-Redemption, Fallout-Nuka Break, The Danger Element, and the hilarious Research with Barry Bostwick.
Doug also loves short films with a special purpose, and has starred in a few that he loves to talk about – The Butterfly Circus about a man born without limbs who finds a sense of family; Sudden Death! a hilarious musical; and The Candy Shop addressing the harrowing issue of child sex trafficking happening right here in the USA.
