Doug Jones – Fans will long remember Doug for his work as THE SILVER SURFER in FANTASTIC FOUR RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER. He’s also the life and soul of ABE SAPIEN in HELLBOY and HELLBOY II THE GOLDEN ARMY (based on the popular Dark Horse comic book, returning to his role of ABE SAPIEN as well a taking on 2 other roles, that of THE CHAMBERLAIN and THE ANGEL OF DEATH for director Guillermo del Toro.)! In the film he wants to be remembered for Doug portrays 2 characters in the Oscar winning film Pan’s Labyrinth (in the native tongue of Spanish “El Laberinto del Fauno”). He plays BOTH Pan (the faun creature) and The Pale Man. Little trivia fact: He learned ALL his lines for the film in Spanish while comparing it to a special script prepared for him in English! Aside from these very POPULAR films you can also find Doug’s work as the voice of Abe Sapien in the HELLBOY cartoon series, as Bette Midler’s boyfriend BILLY in HOCUS POCUS, he was side by side with Danny De Vito in BATMAN RETURNS, PLUS he was one of the “Gentlemen” in the fan favorite TV series BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER! Plus if you just can’t get enough of Doug do check out his starring role on NBC’s “FEAR ITSELF” and look for him in a new film NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD called “MY NAME IS JERRY”!

Mike Pollock – Mike Pollock is a voice actor, famous for playing characters in anime dubs by 4Kids Entertainment. He has appeared as the narrator for 4Kids shows like Pokémon and some promos on the original Fox Box and 4Kids TV.
