Ron Perlman is a classically trained actor who [[HeyItsThatGuy you might recognize all over the place]] in supporting roles or as the occasional lead in B Movies and short lived TV series. A large number of his roles feature the use of prosthetics. He gained increased popularity due to his lead roles in the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' films and the FX series ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy''.

Perlman made his feature film debut as a caveman in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film ''Film/QuestForFire''. Many of his early roles have him speaking languages other than English. His breakthrough role came when he played Vincent in the TV series ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast'', opposite Linda Hamilton from 1987 to 1990. This earned him a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series in 1989 and a large fanbase. Perlman also has a successful career as a voice actor in addition to his onscreen acting, having portrayed characters in numerous video games and animated series, usually playing smooth voiced, sinister villains or people in positions of authority.

Perlman has made a career doing pretty much every role that is offered to him, regardless of the work's level of quality. He was once asked why he does so many B and C-grade movies. His response was, "[[MoneyDearBoy What can I say?]] [[AllWomenLoveShoes My wife likes shoes]]."

He's also one of the actors who might come to mind when the trope RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor comes up: in [[http://collider.com/ron-perlman-hellboy-make-a-wish/178037/ one particularly heartwarming moment]] he dressed up as Hellboy (hours of makeup and all) to spend the day with one of his young fans after a request by the Make-a-Wish foundation. [[DarkIsNotEvil Not that Hellboy is evil]], it's that a fair number of his other characters ''are''.
