The Badasscast Episode 2: Doug Jones (HELLBOY, PAN’S LABYRINTH)

The second episode of the occasional podcast features a lengthy live audience chat with Doug Jones, the actor behind some of the best creatures of our time!

It’s here! The second episode of The Badasscast, the Badass Digest podcast. This episode has the same format as the first one - some fat asshole talks for about eight minutes and then there’s a longform interview. This time it’s with Doug Jones, an actor probably best known for his many monster characters, like the Faun in Pan’s Labyrinth and Abe Sapien in the Hellboy films. Since you’ve likely seen Doug mostly under layers of latex you may not know that he’s one of the nicest, friendliest and funniest guys in the movie business.

This interview was conducted in front of a live audience at the Silent Movie Theater when BAD and the Cinefamily teamed up to do a Mondo Superhero weekend. We showed the original Hellboy and had Doug come in for a Q&A, which I think turned out marvelously. He’s very funny and has great stories - it’s all worth listening to just for his tales of working on Bug Buster with Randy Quaid.

I’m lining up more interviews that I can hopefully turn into podcasts, so maybe you’ll get these more often in the future. If that’s something which appeals to you, that is.
