An award-winning actor, RON PERLMAN has moved seamlessly between the worlds of film, television and theater for almost three decades. Having received a master of fine arts degree from the University of Minnesota, he returned to his native New York to begin his professional career in theater, delving into the works of contemporaries like Pinter and Beckett as well as the classics of Shakespeare,
Marlowe, Ibsen and Chekhov, with two more recent trips back to Broadway in "A Few Good Men" and "Bus Stop."
His film career began in the early 1980s with two films back-to-back for director Jean- Jacques Annaud, Quest for Fire, for which he received a Canadian Academy Award nomination and the role of Salvatore, the hunchback in Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. Perlman resumed his unique collaboration with French directors by starring in Jean Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro's award-winning City of Lost Children and co starring with Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder in Jeunet's Alien: Resurrection. He also starred in Guillermo del Toro's Cronos.
Other film work includes roles in The Island of Dr. Moreau, Romeo Is Bleeding, Fluke,
The Adventures of Huck Finn, Sleepwalkers, The Last Supper, When the Bough
Breaks, Frogs for Snakes, I Woke Up Early the Day I Died, Tinseltown, Happy Texas,
Price of Glory, The Trial of Old Drum and Enemy at the Gates.
Perlman's film career was interrupted for a three-year run on CBS' critically-acclaimed "Beauty and the Beast," for which he received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor along with two Emmy nominations and three Viewers for Quality Television Awards. Other television work includes HBO's "The Second Civil War," "Mr. Stitch," "The Adventures of Captain Zoom," the Rob Nilsson adaptation of the Rod Serling classic "A Town Has Turned to Dust" for the Sci-Fi Channel, "The Magnificent Seven" (marking his second collaboration with CBS), "Primal Force" and "Operation Sandman," the latter two being movies of the week for URN.
