In adorable news of the day, actor Ron Perlman visited a sick fan in full Hellboy makeup as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The young fan, Zachary, not only wanted to meet Hellboy, but also wanted to be him. In two special visits made possible by Spectral Motion, Zachary got to meet Perlman as Hellboy, then was transformed into his favorite character with the help of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn .
It takes about four hours to do the makeup and costuming for Hellboy, and Ron had no problem sitting through that again to grant Zachary his wish. He also ordered a meal of burgers, fries and shakes for Zachary, his family and the crew to enjoy. I wonder if they had Hellboy’s favorite candy bar, a Baby Ruth, too.
There aren’t any official plans for a ‘Hellboy 3,’ but Perlman currently stars on ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ which is in production for it’s 5th season. It was awesome to see him take time out of his busy schedule for a fan.
