Because what better way to lead us into the weekend than a feel-good story, special effects studio Spectral Motion and Hellboy actor Ron Perlman recently teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant a wish for a little boy named Zachary. Ooh -- oh no *copy/pasting quote real quick before my eyes water up*
Zachary loved his visit for two very special reasons. It was Zachary's wish to meet Hellboy and also to become Hellboy. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted Spectral Motion with this request, Mike thought it would be fantastic to have Ron Perlman reprise his role for the day. Ron loved the idea and donned the makeup once more (with the assistance of Lufeng Qu and Eden Elizalde) and also ordered a Hellboy sized meal of burgers, shakes, and fries for Zachary and his family and the entire Spectral crew to enjoy. Later in the day, Zachary was transformed into Hellboy with the assistance of makeup artists Lufeng Qu and Neil Winn. Both of the Make-A-Wish days were a complete thrill for the families of the children, as well as for the crew at Spectral Motion!
Did you read that? Ron Perlman even bought burgers and shakes and fries for everyone! *sobbing uncontrollably* You know, I told myself I wouldn't cry when I posted this, but, between you and me, I knew I was lying when I said it.
Hit the jump for a bunch more including little Zachary as Hellboy.
Thanks to Evan, who makes wishes come true just by lighting up a room with his smile...then throwing wads of cash in the air yelling, 'FREE MONEY!'
