We’ve been kicking around the idea of pretending to reboot the Hellboy film franchise and doing it right this time—with characterization and plot taken from the comics, etc.

We have a bunch of great actors for a fantasy fancast but a few are still glaringly missing. Have any suggestions?

Our picks so far beneath the cut:

Cast:

Hellboy - Ron Perlman

Prof. Broom - John Hurt

image

Dr. Kate Corrigan - Vera Farmiga

image

Dr. Johann Kraus - Christoph Waltz

image

Ben Daimio - Takeshi Kitano

image

Dr. JH O’Donnell - John Noble (See Walter from Fringe)

image

Langdon Caul - Paul McGann

Uncast:

Roger
Abe Sapien (could use Doug Jones again?)
Liz Sherman
Andrew Devon
Ashley Strode
Carla Giarocco
Rebecca Gervesh
Nichols
Vaughn

Maybe also Lobster Johnson and Edward Grey too?

    Oh so we’re not going to use Selma Blair again? Fair enough. Er…I haven’t put a ton of thought behind who I’d want to be...
  2. gothamisburning answered: Bruce Campbell as Lobster Johnson.

    I’m totally cool with Doug hanging on as Abe in both body and voice, I think he’s pretty damn good for it tbh. Just lose...
