Doug Jones: No Word on Silver Surfer

Earlier today, Superhero Hype! had a chance to talk to actor and creature performance artist Doug Jones when we visited the set of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and after talking to him about the new characters he plays (which sadly we won’t be able to reveal for a few months at least), we did get a few questions in about whether he might don that special silver suit to do a bit more performance capture for the Silver Surfer, particularly in the proposed spin-off film.

“I know as much as you do about that; I wish I knew more,” he answered. “I suppose they have a writer hired who’s been talking about it at Comic-Con, so that’s how I heard about him. As far as the timing goes, don’t know. As far as whether they’re going to come back for me again, I’m contracted for two more, whether they exercise that contract is up to them. I would like to…”

And as far as providing his own voice for the character in future films after having the voice dubbed by Laurence Fishburne? “I would like the opportunity,” he responded.

Check back early next week for a brief preview of our visit to the set of Hellboy II: The Golden Army at Korba Studios in Hungary.
