While famous for working under prosthetics in iconic feature film roles, Doug Jones is also a versatile character actor who has performed as “himself” in guest star roles on shows like “Criminal Minds,” “C.S.I.” and NBC’s horror anthology “Fear Itself.” A veteran of over 100 commercials, Doug was Mac Tonight, the moon-headed piano player in the long-running 1990’s McDonald’s campaign. He also starred as the lead villain in “Hush,” an Emmy-winning episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” long considered a fan favorite.
In 2005, he played the title role of Pan (as well as the nightmare character, The Pale Man) in Guillermo del Toro’s Oscar-winning Spanish language fantasy/horror feature “Pan’s Labyrinth.” But it was his sensitive and elegant performance as Abe Sapien in del Toro’s 2004 box office hit “Hellboy” that brought Doug’s unique work to a wider audience. He went on to voice that same character for the Emmy-nominated Cartoon Network animations “Hellboy: Sword of Storms” and “Hellboy: Blood and Iron.” In 2007, Doug’s title role performance in “Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer” was hailed by fans and critics alike. 2008 saw Doug reprise his starring role (as well as two other characters) in “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” once more under the direction of del Toro. He currently stars in “Gainsbourg,” a stylized biopic of the famous French poet/ singer/composer Serge Gainsbourg, in which he plays Gainsbourg’s dark alter ego. The film has won three Cesar Awards, the French equivalent of The Oscars. Soon fans will see Doug in the upcoming film Neighborhood Watch, starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Jonah Hill.
Critics have loved his TV guest work in the highly praised “Skin & Bones” episode of NBC’s Fear Itself, as the lead gentleman in Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “Hush” episode, and in episodes of CSI and Criminal Minds. (Bio provided by OmniPop Talent Group)
