Doug Jones Education

Doug attended Bishop Chatard High School. He is a Ball State University graduate, where he parlayed his background as a mime into portraying the school mascot “Charlie Cardinal”. The “dyed-in-wool Christian from the Midwest”, as he describes himself, was at a point that he was initially apprehensive about his role in Hellboy, as the titular character is a demon.

Doug Jones Career

Jones career started in 1980s in the television and movie industry as a television advertisement character of the, Mac Tonight. Doug, has also performed without prosthetics in such films as Adaptation, Mystery Men, and Batman Returns, and indie projects such as Stefan Haves’ Stalled, AntiKaiser Productions’ Three Lives, Phil Donlon’s A Series of Small Things and as Cesare in David Fisher’s 2005 remake of the 1920 silent classic The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.

But mostly he is known for his work under prosthetic makeup in the lead spy Morlock in the 2002 remake of the 1960 film, the Time Machine such as the Walt Disney Pictures Halloween film Hocus Pocus named zombie Billy Butcherson. Jones’ likeness was used for Nvidia’s “Human Head” tech demo in February 2007. Doug appeared in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer as the Silver Surfer although Laurence Fishburne provided the character’s voice in June 2007.

He reprised his role as Abe Sapien in Hellboy II: The Golden Army, once more under the direction of del Toro, for which he provided both the voice and body performance. He played two other roles in the film: the Angel of Death and the Chamberlain, both under heavy prosthetics. Del Toro announced on BBC Radio that Jones would be playing the monster in his upcoming version of Frankenstein in 2009.

In Sockbaby 4, Jones starred as himself, the fourth installment of the Internet martial arts comedy series Sockbaby. Gainsbourg Vie héroïque is a French-language film that Jones appeared in, written and directed by French comic book author Joann Sfar and produced by Universal Europe. Jones role was that of La Gueule which translates to “The Mug”, the grotesque fantasy muse and malicious doppelganger who teases, guides, and accompanies Serge Gainsbourg throughout his life.

His prosthetics were designed and created by the Academy Award-winning Spanish FX shop DDT Efectos Especiales, the people he had worked on Pan’s Labyrinth. Jones ability to perform with heavy prosthetics and elaborate special effects led the FX technicians to request specifically that Jones be given the role of the Mug creature. Jones performed his lines speaking in French; his voice was redubbed by Éric Elmosnino, who also played Gainsbourg.

The film released in France on January 20, 2010 by director Joann Sfar who liked Jones’ speech patterns so much that he asked Elmosnino to mimic it when he performed the creature’s lines. Jones signed a book deal with Medallion Press to model a nonfiction comedic coffee table book called Mime Very Own Book in January 2010, co-written by Adam Mock and Scott Allen Perry and photographed by Eric Curtis which was due for publication in December 2011.

Jones plays Dr. Henry Vataber in the web series Universal Dead. It was announced that Universal Dead would be made into a feature film in late June 2010. American film studio Whitestone Pictures, saw Jones appearing in the independent film The Candy Shop, a “modern fairy tale” shedding light upon child sex trafficking.

Jones also was the Slender Man who acted as the Operator, a fictional entity based on the Internet myth, in Always Watching: A Marble Hornets Story a 2014 film adaptation of the popular Marble Hornets YouTube series.

Discovery, which premiered September 24, 2017, cast Jones as Commander Saru in Star Trek. That same year, Jones played the Amphibian Man in The Shape of Water after reuniting with Guillermo del Toro in 2017, this time in a romantic lead role.
