El Laberinto del Hellboy


Just a note about a non-comic related movie. Guillermo del Toro's (Blade II, Hellboy) most recent film, Pan's Labyrinth (or El Laberinto del Fauna, in the original Spanish) is a fascinating piece of art. The movie is completely in Spanish, which is why I was surprised, among the Spanish names: Ariadna Gil, Ivana Baquero, Maribel Verdú, Sergi López...one stands out as decidedly not Spanish.

Doug Jones.

Jones, of course, has worked with del Toro before. He played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy movie (but not his voice); but did voice the character in the animated film. Note, that's him in the poster.

I didn't realize he's done so many comic book films: Men in Black II, Monkeybone, Mystery Men, Tank Girl, Batman Returns. Six degrees of comic book separation.

I happened to be California on travel for work (the first time since October), and it just worked out. I know it'd never come to Florence, AL...
