Creator: Ron Perlman
Ron. Ron never changes.

The answer to the age-old question "Who is Slade?"

Ron Perlman (born April 13, 1950) is a classically trained actor who 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 Hellboy films and the FX series Sons of Anarchy.

Perlman made his feature film debut as a caveman in Jean-Jacques Annaud's film Quest for Fire. Many of his early roles have him speaking languages other than English. His breakthrough role came when he played Vincent in the TV series Beauty and the Beast, 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, and usually very large, imposing men, due to his deep, thundering voice.

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, "What can I say? My wife likes shoes."

He's also one of the actors who might come to mind when the trope Mean Character Nice Actor comes up: in 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. Not that Hellboy is evil, it's that a fair number of his other characters are.
