Doug Jones on Hellboy 2: The Golden Army
IFMagazine has an interview with Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the first Hellboy feature film and returns in several roles (including Abe) in the sequel, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. According to Jones, Abe will have a much more prominent role in The Golden Army, including a larger share of the action scenes.
You’re going to see [Abe] with a gun in his hand firing at things. No sword, but you’ll also see him with no weapon in his hands doing a certain fighting style that Guillermo called ‘the way of the water’ and would be most reminiscent of Capeoira, that Brazilian dancing fighting style that everyone seems at least somewhat familiar with.
Jones goes on to discuss the addition of a love interest for his character, the possibility of a "Director’s Cut," and the influence of Hellboy creator Mike Mignola on the film.
