DOUG JONES BIOGRAPHY
Doug Jones is born the May 24, 1960 in Indianapolis and holds a BA in telecommunications from Ball State University. His first approach to acting was playing the character of Mac Tonight, McDonald’s television icon. After this first engagement in the Hollywood world, Jones devotes himself to learning the art of contortionism, which will come in handy not only in the advertising field, but also in the cinema one. The first roles mark what will be his career dedicated to transformation, in fact already in 1992, when he appears in Batman – The Return, is in the guise of one of the evil clows and the following year receives his first major role in Hocus Pocus (1993), also below the heavy makeup of the zombie Billy Butcherson.
His transformism will be increasingly present within his interpretations, in fact, although he has also lent his face to “normal” characters, he is known above all for having lent his features to non-human characters with heavy makeup and the addition of prosthetics, such as the clown’s Magic Kid (1993) or the Genetically Modified Ripper Soldier in Tank Girl (1995). Precisely for this reason in his curriculum horror or fantastic films prevail, as well as collaborations with master directors of these genres. Guillermo del Toro he is one of those filmmakers who has often relied on Doug Jones’ metamorphic qualities in his films. The partnership between the two was born with Mimic (1997), where the actor is a strange anthropomorphic insect that he will have to fight against Josh Brolin.
Jones’ abilities are also showcased on TV with the series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1999), where the actor is the leader of the Gentlemen, demons that appear in the fourth season. In 2001 he is at the cinema with Monkeybone, a film that combines live-action with stop-motion and in which the performer wears the fur of a yeti with a long pronounced nose. Later he is one of the Morlocks in The Time Machine (2002) and in 2004 he returned to be directed by Del Toro in Hellboy as the bluish-toned amphibious creature Abe Sapien, a role he will also reprise in Hellboy: The Golden Army (2008), in which he will also play the characters of the Angel of Death and the Chamberlain.
In Doom (2005) Dwayne Johnson is Karl Urban they fight horrifying creatures, most of which are played by Jones, who also choreographed the movements of Czech dancers in the role of zombies in the film. In 2006 it is still Guillermo del Toro to direct it The labyrinth of the faun where he plays two characters: that of the Faun, in fact, and that of the Pale Man, for whom he underwent a five-hour long preparation and, since the costume had no holes for the eyes, he moved looking from the holes that the mask had instead of the nose. The following year he is cast for the blockbuster Fantastic 4 and the Silver Surfer (2007), where he wears the prosthetic suit for the role of the all-silver galactic surfer. There is a return to horror, after Buffy, with Quarantine (2008), in which a full day of make-up and prosthetics was used to transform him into the infected and thin man of the film, and with the participation in an episode of Fear Itself (2008) as a man possessed by a cannibal demon.
His physical conformation and motor skills have been useful to him for the part of the ice cream man in Legion (2010) and horror strikes again with the third collaboration with Del Toro in Crimson Peak (2015), where she played both the ghost of the protagonist’s mother and that of Lady Beatrice Sharpe. In the meantime, the commitment on TV continues and the interpretation of one of the Ancients, or one of the seven vampires of the New York underground of The Strain (2014). He disguises himself as a demon in the cinema also in two other horror films, is The Bye Bye Man in the 2016 film of the same name and the specter Marcus in Ouija – The origin of evil (2016). In 2017 he returns to be directed for the umpteenth time by Guillermo del Toro in the romantic sci-fi tale The shape of water, where Doug Jones is the male lead, an amphibious being with human feelings.
