Feel-Good Friday: Ron Perlman And Special Effects Studio Team Up For 'Hellboy' Make-A-Wish Foundation Wish

July 6, 2012


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!'

  • Kid: I want spiderman!

    Make a wish: Spiderman doesnt do things for free... how about hellboy?

    Kid: I guess i dont have a choice even though I was born like 2 years after Hellboy came out and it wasnt even a good movie...

    Ron Pearlman: I guess doing this would give me some publicity and stuff..

    Yeah I can't sit here and say they didn't butcher the kids makup but I still gotta give Ron props for taking time out of his life to make this kids year hands down, look at how happy he is to be around Hellboy lol

  • ArmandTamzarian

    Here's a better job done by amateurs


  • WTF. . .People are bitching about a kid being happy? How messed up are you guys?

  • dougfunnay

    seriously though the kids makeup couldnt have taken more than 10 minutes and the argument that the face paint could be allergenic is bs because there are alternatives.... they did paint his face after all (they just did a terrible job of it)
    and they could have taken a little more time and care with the bald cap horn wig thing seeing instead of making it look like they begrudgingly spent half an afternoon cobling it together out of chicken scrotum an styrofoam

  • Where is the scrotum on a chicken? o.O

  • Winnie Da Pooh

    @ Hood and a side order to Junkie, O'Callahan and Rommel: I know better than to feed the trolls, so I won't use the words that want to come out in reaction to what you wrote. I do wish that there was a ruthless moderator here. As for Hood, I will instead reply in the words of George Bernard Shaw:


    I am sitting in the smallest room of my home. Your writing is in front of me. Soon it will be behind me.


  • So many onions.......... Why did someone leave all these onions in here?????

  • banzi641
  • Not only is Mr. Perlman one of my favorite actors. He's now one of my favorite human beings :´)

  • Jeremiah O'Callahan

    Can't believe they half assed the kids makeup.

  • CrazyUncleNicola

    Yeah a kid's gonna sit still for a couple of hours or so to apply the real shit yeah half assed alright. Plus the real make up might not be safe to use on a sick kid.

  • Adam Crolla

    A sponge and a bit of red Snazaroo would've at least given full strong red covering and taken all of 5 minutes... they've just not bothered here, it's really crappily done. They didn't even do his eyes!

  • Oz Baxter

    Oh Ron Perlman. Could we love you more? Heart of gold, that guy.

  • He is the shiniest pearl of the sea!

  • Pascale Laviolette

    HAH... legit LOL.

  • If he made Hellboy 3 you bet your ass we could! :D

  • Tyler Hood

    "Aw who cares if you don't do a good job on the kids make-up, he's dying in a few anyway."

    Here's a better idea, you faggot.... smoke 30 packs of cigarettes all in one day, get yourself cancer, if you have serious allergies concerning face paint, use it and paint a happy face on yourself, buy a gun, open your mouth and pull the fucking trigger. It's not that hard. Beiside, if your dead, no one here is gonna miss your punk ass you fucking shit stain.

  • Shaun9lives

    "Faggot?" Seriously? Are you twelve? You're making yourself look as bad as the dickbag you're trying to shame.

  • shane

    Dude, did you really just post that? Maybe watch a little less Family guy and keep your lame comments to yourself. I dunno, just sayin'
