Deadpool Villian Ed Skrein Joins New Hellboy Cast
Ed Skrein knows action. He’s been in ‘Deadpool’, ‘The Transporter: Refuled’ and the upcoming ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ from Robert Rodriquez. Now he has signed on to join the cast of Neil Marhsall’s new reboot of ‘Hellboy’ staring David Harbour. He also joins Ian McShane who’s playing Hellboy’s adoptive father and Milla Jovovich as a mysterious evil out to destroy mankind.
Skrein will play Major Ben Daimio, a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain.
Shooting starts next month in the U.K.
Last month we wrote about David Harbour and Ron Perlman broke bread to put an end to any doubt that Ron supported the reboot and re-casting of the big red guy.
Sad to see the original Hellboy crew move on but I love the character and stories. David Harbour is a great actor and is killing it on Stranger Things. Looking forward to seeing what he does with the character.
