From film, to television, to video games, Ron Perlman has done it all. And he’s done it all with a scowl! Seriously, he’s a great actor, but he’s also the scowliest son of a bitch in Hollywood. Well, hopefully this list of Ron Perlman‘s nine greatest scowls will turn that frown upside-down.
Jesus, I forgot this show even existed. The 80’s were a crazy time, and cocaine was a hell of a drug. Seriously, who the hell approved a network drama featuring a guy dressed up like a lion with Downs? At any rate, despite the heavy makeup, Ron’s trademark scowl comes shining through.
Ron Perlman’s role in the French film, The City of Lost Children, proves that the scowl breaks right through the language barrier.
Yet another example of Perlman’s scowl having to fight its way through a pund of makeup, The Island of Dr. Moreau also featured noted scowler Marlon Brando. All though by that time, Brando was so overweight, he was showing a lot more jowl than scowl.
If I had to fight an army of aliens with a dwarf tied to my back, I’d be scowling too. Not to mention that awful Winona Ryder cyborg was constantly running her yap.
If there was ever a reason to scowl, the Battle of Stalingrad was it. With nearly two-million people killed, it makes sense that there wasn’t a lot of smiling going on. As such, Perlman was perfect for the role.
Honestly, other than the scowl, there’s no way you would guess that Ron Perlman is under that mask. Why the hell would you higher a star to play a role like that. You might as well grab a day laborer from the Home Depot parking lot.
Jesus, I’m beginning to think that Perlman is a modern day Lon Chaney.
We saved the best for last, and by best, I mean worst. Season of the Witch bombed with the critics and at the box office. But it’s failure can not be chalked up to a lack of scowling.
