Actor extraordinaire, Ron Perlman
Hey folks, a little update on our Bad Planet video game project over at Kickstarter. Last Wednesday, my partner in crime, Thomas Jane made a huge announcement for us on G4's X-Play - The big news was the addition of fan-favorite actor, the amazing Ron Perlman, to our Bad Planet cast of characters. You know Ron from Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy, Blade II, and his more than 180 film and TV roles as a go-to character-actor, a guy who can alternately break your heart or your skull depending upon the demands of the role. Ron will provide the voice of Bad Planet's main protagonist, THE CONVICT, a 7 foot tall Alien, sheathed in Dinosaur hide, carrying a 6 ft power axe, and a bad attitude (OK, he's really the good guy).
I met Ron back in 2000 while working with Guillermo del Toro on Blade II. We stayed in touch during Guillermo's preceeding work, Mike Mignola's HELLBOY. In 2006, Ron met up with partner Thomas Jane in London for The Mutant Chronicles, and became fast friends. In 2007 Tom cast Ron as the Sheriff in our dark little gothic, noir suspense film, Dark Country. When we needed a guy with a heart and a lotta milegae on that magnificent face when looking to cast a military vet liquor store owner for the Dirty Laundry/Punisher fan film, we had to look no further than brother Ron. The Perl gave Dirty Laundry the dose of humanity it needed. Ron is usually there for us when we come calling and the part is right.
With the Convict, Ron is absolutely perfect to give the last Phaedon warrior the right mix of nobility and strength. There was really no other actor we considered for this. Big thanks to Brother Ron for taking on the role and supporting us with our video game project. Incidentally, before they knew each other personally, Tom and Ron worked on the same video game (GUN) together in 2005 without ever even meeting each other! GUN was a great game, and there's no doubt that trend continues with BAD PLANET.
