"Hellboy" star Ron Perlman will raise a little more hell for FX -- and he won't need massive amounts of makeup to do so.
Perlman has joined the cable network's series "Sons of Anarchy," where he'll play the leader of an outlaw motorcycle club, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show is scheduled to premiere in the fall.
"Sons of Anarchy" centers on the title motorcycle club's efforts to protect their small town from outside elements, including drug dealers and real-estate developers. Charlie Hunnam ("Children of Men") stars as a young member of the club whose affection for it comes in conflict with his concern over some of its actions.
Katey Sagal ("Married ... with Children," "Eli Stone") plays Hunnam's mother, and Perlman will play his stepfather. Scott Glenn played the role in the show's pilot, but after the show opted to cast itself as more of a dark comedy, Perlman was brought in.
Prior to "Hellboy," Perlman was best known for the CBS series "Beauty and the Beast." His credits also include "Blade II," "Alien: Resurrection" and a host of voice-over roles. He'll next be seen in "Hellboy II: The Golden Army," which hits theaters in July.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
