About Ron Perlman
Born in New York City, Perlman’s mother, Dorothy (née Rosen), worked at the City Clerk’s Office, while his father, Bertram “Bert” Perlman, was a repairman and a drummer. His family is of Hungarian, German and Polish Jewish descent. He was brought up Jewish, having his Bar mitzvah ceremony at age 13 and he associated with Jewish friends and family. Jews growing up at that time, in the 50s and 60s, were still quite tight knit but Perlman broke out of all that and developed a large fanbase, despite not being considered a bankable star.
His career in film, started with a small role in the Academy Award-winning film Quest for Fire, 1981. While only appearing as a tribesman, it was the beginning of great things. Of course Perlman didn’t know that at the time. In fact, he made no further appearances for three years. At which time he was cast and appeared as Zeno in the 1984 film, The Ice Pirates. Over the new few years, he picked up consistent work. Mostly starring in single episodes of TV series, until be was cast as the noble lion-man Vincent in Beauty and the Beast, in which he appeared for 55 episodes until 1990. For his performances, he earned a Golden Globe Award and a following, many of whom are still fans of his work today.
While it continued to be challenging in his film and TV acting career, Pearlman was cast in roles on television and independent films such as Guillermo del Toro’s debut Cronos (1993). His career continued this way appearing as One, in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s surreal The City of Lost Children (1995) but finally had a breakout performance when he played the brutish Johner in his first Hollywood outing Alien Resurrection (1997).
One of Pearlman’s distinct advantages is his voice, as well as his distinct look. All the while, to supplement his acting work, he appeared in commercials, as well as lent his voice to video games, such as the Fallout series. After the new millennium, he appeared in Enemy at the Gates, and three years later, in 2004, Hellboy. Pearlman’s role as Hellboy is what he is best known for today, along with his role as Clarence ‘Clay’ Morrow in Sons of Anarchy, from 2008 to 2013.
