Doug Jones is perhaps one of the most brilliant actors of our time. Some say he is this generations “Boris Karloff”!
Doug’s illustrious career spans 30+ years in television and on film! Currently Doug can be seen as Captain Saru on the CBS series “Trek Discovery” (perhaps one of the best “Trek” series to hit airways)!
Fans will long remember Doug for his work as THE SILVER SURFER in FANTASTIC FOUR RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER. He’s also breathed the life and soul into ABE SAPIEN in HELLBOY and HELLBOY II THE GOLDEN ARMY.
In the Oscar winning film he wants to be remembered for, Doug portrays 2 characters, that of both Pan and The Pale Man in PAN’S LABYRINTH. 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!
Another fan favorite is the Halloween cult classic, HOCUS POCUS, in which Doug plays a goofy zombie (ex-boyfriend of Bette Midler’s character) BILLY BUTCHERSON a role he will reprise in the upcoming HOCUS POCUS II. And his earliest comic book movie appearance was alongside Danny De Vito as a circus clown henchman in BATMAN RETURNS.
Doug teamed up again with director Guillermo del Toro to bring an original story to life in the Oscar winning film “The Shape of Water”.
Doug moves seamlessly from film to TV. He can currently be seen in “What We Do In The Shadows”! Previous notable television work includes FALLING SKIES, TEEN WOLF, FEAR ITSELF, THE NEIGHBORS, and the lead Gentleman on the Emmy-nominated “Hush” episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER!
