This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I'll check it in a moment, but they better not have gratuitiously replaced actors....

Last year there was an interview on NPR with Guillermo Del Toro, mostly talking up his last film, Pan's Labyrinth.  When asked what he most hoped would come of the film, he happily answered that he hoped it would make enough money to help him underwrite the making of Hellboy II.  The interviewer, dumbfounded, asked him if he was kidding, and he just as happily replied that he was totally serious.

I loved Pan's Labyrinth.  I'm glad to see that Del Toro's wish came true. :)

!i!

Also, for the record - I think immolation would be a small price to pay, if you catch my drift. ;)

I'm afraid that I don't.  Kelsey Grammer makes a kick-ass Hellboy.

He did alright as BEAST in that last X-mEn movie.

 Still , I think Ron Perlman does a pretty good job.

Love that Del Toro is at heart is just a big fanboy like the rest of us.

Some of those interviewers should realize that sometimes a director or moviemaker does something because they want to have fun too. (and they figured out that the rest of us might pay a movie ticket price for that kind of fun)

I used to think Del Toro was pretty awesome.  This little anecdote, however, drags him straight up to badass.

You know, I sort of mis-remembered the interview -- it was almost a year ago. I found the archived file, though:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=7000935

Go straight to 41:00 (it's a 45 minute interview), and they light right into talking about Hellboy.  Del Toro is positively animated when he discusses the topic.  The whole interview is pretty cool, though.

I downloaded the largest file, but my stupid computer refuses to show me the money... er.. .the trailer.

So: I liked Kelsey Grammer as Beastman, but his polished erudite Schtick seemed the prefect match anyway. I will have to trust that he'll make a good Hellboy.  I for one, still dislike on GP the swapping of actors. Even if the swap is a good one, it breaks continuity when ya watch 'em back to back. Then there is the whole 'who was the better X' arguements that inevitably follow, the broken hearts, the tears, the makeup sex....

... wait. Maybe...


Nah.

No, no.  I was kidding.  That's totally still Ron Perlman as Hellboy. :p

Someone asked Chuck Norris if he thought he could play Hellboy.  

"I'm not sure I could do it as well as Ron Perlman, frankly," he replied with a shrug, and went back to skinning a beluga whale with his bare hands.
