A classically trained actor with strong features who is often cast as a mutant, a misfit or a villain, Ron Perlman was born in Washington Heights, N.Y., on April 13, 1950. He honed his skills on the New York stage and made his Broadway debut in "Teibele and Her Demon" in 1979 before making the transition to feature films.

A decade later, Perlman earned a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of the half-human Vincent on the television drama "Beauty and the Beast." Steady work as an off-camera actor followed, with Perlman lending his distinctive voice to animated series such as "Duckman" and "Batman the Animated Series" and to video games such as Chronomaster and Fallout.

In one of his most widely recognized movie roles, Perlman donned heavy makeup to play the title role in the comic book-inspired Hellboy and its sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
