Hellboy for a Day?

Ron Perlman grants Make a Wish foundation.

Considering Guillermo del Toro's very busy schedule, a Hellboy 3 may be years away from your local theaters. But that doesn't mean the comic character doesn't show himself from time to time...Dave Lewis over at HitFix reports that "Big Red" made an appearance this weekend thanks to the "Make a Wish Foundation." Actor Ron Perlman underwent hours of makeup with effects gurus Spectral Motion once again to grant a kid named Zachary his wish...Check out the full story here.

Sony Pictures revealed Hellboy into theaters on April 2, 2004, taking in $23.1 million after its first weekend. It would go on to gross $99.3 million worldwide, based on a budget of $66 million. Its sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, was released by Universal Pictures on July 11. 2008. The second installment grabbed $34.5 million over its debut performance and went on to gross $160.3 million worldwide, based off a budget of $85 million.

Guillermo del Toro's next movie is the genre release Pacific Rim. It will invade theaters on July 12, 2013.

Ron Perlman is AWESOME for doing this! Make a Wish Foundation really does make kid's dreams come true doesn't it? It's a good thing little Zachary didn't ask for Abe as well! 

Kudos to you Ron Perlman! You will forever be our one and only Hellboy!!!

 This is the kind of stuff one can't fake. Ron Perlman spent hours getting back into the Hellboy makeup just to make a kids wish come true. Sometimes it is easy to go off on some Hollywood types as shallow (and maybe they are) but I can't believe Perlman is one of them. Seriously, he could have politely turned this down and noone would have known. That he went through all of this simply to provide a wish to a cancer stricken young man in a situation that easily could have garnered him no fame, no applause as it could have been ignored as a less interesting tidbit than the latest infor on Tom Cruise's latest divorce is a sign that Perlman is top class. Bravo to him and everyone else who work with Make a Wish to help someone else they have no reason to help outside of the kindness of their heart.

 This is a great story. Head about it yesterday and you're completely right, Betemoire, he's a genuine classy guy. There are pictures from this out there too, check'em out. The kid not only got to hang hour with Hellboy, but also got made up as Hellboy Jr.

This kid needs an intervention. Hellboy? reallly? jk

Awesome job by Pearlman. Reminds me of a story I read a couple of weeks back about John Cena, I think he has granted like 300 wishes for the organization. Good of these guys

 Perlman rocks.  When do I get a movie with him and Bruce Campbell?

Haha I'm so glad you guys published this!  I read about this somewhere else and was really impressed.  This deserves press for sure, what a cool thing to do!

 This is more cool than the word "cool" can even express.
