[[caption-width-right:329:The man in question.]]
Doug Jones (born May 24, 1960) is an American actor best known for his roles in science fiction, fantasy, and horror as non-human characters that usually require hours worth of makeup being applied to his person. He has performed in such films and television series as ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', ''HellboyII'', ''PansLabyrinth'', and ''Film/FantasticFour: Rise of the Silver Surfer''.

He is a big supporter of, and involved in, many independent films and shorts.

He's much beloved by fans for his sweet, funny demeanor and giving of hugs to anyone who will take them.

----
!!Productions Doug has been a part of:
[[AC: Film]]
* ''Film/FantasticFour: Rise of the Silver Surfer'' as the Silver Surfer.
* ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', ''HellboyII'', ''WesternAnimation/HellboyAnimated: Sword of Storms'', ''Hellboy Animated: Blood and Iron'' as Abe Sapien and in Hellboy II, the Angel of Death.
* The Butterfly Circus (short), as Otto
* The Lady in the Water, as one of the Tartutic
* ''PansLabyrinth'' as the Faun and the Pale Man.
* "My Name is Jerry" as the titular character.
* He's now doing a ''MarbleHornets'' movie, playing the movie's titular Operator, AKA [[TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man.]]

[[AC: Television]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' as the Gentleman.
* ''Series/FallingSkies'' as Cochise the Volm.

[[AC: Web Series]]
* "Research" as Denny.
* "Dragon Age: Redemption" as Saarebas.
* "The Guild" as Gerald.

[[AC: Videogames]]

!!This Actor contains examples of:
* CreepyLongFingers: Well, they are when he's playing a villain and every gesture exudes menace; in real life they are very graceful, and watching every gesture he makes with them is like watching a sort of dance.
* CuddleBug: He's more than willing to give hugs to anyone who will take one, and fans are known to say that they are heavenly.
* DoingItForTheArt: His acting in independent films. If he likes the idea, he's got the free time, and he's had a role recently that pays the bills, he's more than delighted to act in independent films.
* FauxFluency: Subverted. Instead of learning the archaic form of Spanish phonetically, he ''actually'' learned it for his role as the Faun in PansLabyrinth so he knew the appropriate places to pause, etc., though the voice heard in the finished film is done by a native speaker.
* HappilyMarried
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Often plays villains or monsters, but is the sweetest man you could possibly meet.
* NiceGuy: ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* NoodlePeople: Quite tall and extremely thin, which he says makes him every prosthetic makers dream because they can pretty much do whatever they like with the design.
* OneOfUs: Has been a comic book fan since he was a kid, loves Steampunk, and is a huge fan/supporter of SteamPoweredGiraffe.
* PromotedFanboy: Has been a fan of the Silver Surfer since he was a kid.
** He was a BigNameFan of ''WebSeries/MarbleHornets'' before he got a part in the movie based off of it. As the Operator.
* SerkisFolk: As the Silver Surfer.
* TheSilentBob: Has a background in miming and often plays characters who don't ([[TheVoiceless or can't]]) say a word, and expresses reams of dialogue simply by body language.
