It’s time to turn off the lights, dig into that bucket of popcorn, and have the bejeezus scared out of you by the modern-day Man of 1,000 Faces, Doug Jones!

That’s right! We’re joined this week by the incomparable Doug Jones, who has brought to life characters such as Abe Sapien (Hellboy and Hellboy II), the Pale Man and the Fawn (Pan’s Labyrinth), the Silver Surfer (Fantastic Four), Billy Butcherson (Hocus Pocus), Cochise (Falling Skies), and the most frightening villain from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

It was an absolute privilege to have Doug on the show. He’s just incredibly kind and absolutely full of amazing stories and experiences. We chat about some of his most famous roles, his background in mime and contortion, what it’s like to work under all that makeup, what we can look forward to in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Crimson Peak, and a recent Kickstarter that will see Doug bring Count Orlok back to life!

Strap in tight for this one, folks. Doug takes us on a wild ride.

By the way, Doug will be appearing at Wizard World Richmond (VA) on August 1 and 2. If you’re in the area, you should absolutely swing by. Doug will be signing and doing photo ops all weekend, and he’ll have a panel and Q&A on Saturday afternoon. Stop by and say hi to Doug (and me!).
