From serving as the shiny messenger of a world-devouring alien in "Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer" to drunkenly singing as Hellboy’s brainy bud Abe Sapien, actor Doug Jones has held some of the most coveted supporting roles in comic book film history. That’s why when rumors of the actor’s involvement in fan-favorite properties arise it’s easy to believe the hype.
Unfortunately, for those awaiting Jones’ appearance in certain cosmic roles, there might be a wait.
In an interview with Itsjustmovies, the upcoming "Legion" actor revealed that while things have been quiet regarding the Silver Surfer of late, he’d be happy to hang ten in either another Fantastic Four film or a self-titled spinoff.
“There are still a couple of years left on their option for two more pictures with me, as a three-picture deal is quite standard when starting a franchise-potential character. But with all the “re-boot” talk of the Fantastic Four, I have no idea where that leaves the Silver Surfer end of things. I would love to re-visit this character. I do love Norrin Radd,” said Jones.
Even though the surfer is unlikely to appear in the "Fantastic Four" relaunch being scripted by Michael Green, there’s an entire universe of space-dwellers to play—most notably a rumored role in the upcoming “Green Lantern” adaptation starring Ryan Reynolds. According to Jones, however, he’s yet to receive an offer.
“Am I going to play a part in the “Green Lantern” movie? I did hear such a rumor a couple of months ago, but no one has called me regarding this one yet. But if there’s a character I’m right for, I’d be quite interested to hear about it,” said Jones.
Would you be into watching Jones catch some cosmic waves reprising his Norrin Radd role? How about an appearance in the upcoming “Green Lantern?” What are you really jones'n for Jones?
