Fantastic Beasts movie adds Hellboy star

Yet another big name has joined Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts

The cast of David Yates’ Harry Potter prequel/spinoff (delete as appropriate) Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them has been gradually expanding for some time. Now, we have another devilishly great addition in the form of Hellboy star and Guillermo del Toro regular Ron Perlman.

As told by The Hollywood Reporter, Perlman has taken on a role that is unspecified, although he is believed to be a goblin. We can get on board with that. Perlman would make a great goblin. Hell, he’s great in pretty much everything he’s in, so we’re definitely happy.
