RON PERLMAN (Nino) 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 Checkov with two 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 starring in Jean Pierre Juenet and Marc Caro's award-winning "City Of Lost Children,” and costarring with Sigourney Weaver and Winona Ryder in Juenet's "Alien Resurrection.”

Other film work includes roles in studio ventures such as "The Island Of Dr. Moreau,” "Romeo Is Bleeding,” "Fluke,” "The Adventures Of Huck Finn,” "Sleepwalkers,” "Happy Texas,” "Enemy At The Gate,” "Blade 2,” "Star Trek Nemesis,' and Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy” as the title character. Perlman's independent film credits including "Cronos,” "The Last Supper,” "When The Bough Breaks,” "Frogs For Snakes,” "I Woke Up Early The Day I Died,” "Tinseltown,” and the Academy Award® Winning short "Two Soldiers.”

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, and "The Magnificent Seven.”

Most recent credits include Stephen King's mini-series "Desperation” for ABC, Larry Fessenden's indie, "The Last Winter,” "In The Name Of The King” with Jason Statham, a "Masters Of Horror” episode directed by John Carpenter for Showtime, the independent feature "The Mutant Chronicles,” opposite Thomas Jane and John Malkovich, "I Sell The Dead,” opposite Dominic Monaghan, "Outlander” opposite Jim Caviezel and John Hurt, and "Bunraku” opposite Demi Moore, Josh Harnett and Woody Harrelson. Perlman reprised his role in Guillermo del Toro's sequel, "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army,” and next will be seen in "Season Of The Witch” where he stars opposite Nicolas Cage.

Perlman is currently shooting the third season of the critically acclaimed FX series, "Sons Of Anarchy” where he plays ‘Clay,' the president of a motorcycle gang.
