Ron Perlman, best known for playing Clay Morrow in Sons of Anarchy and, of course, the title character in Hellboy, has added his imposing presence to the cast of the Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, joining Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, Gemma Chan and Sam Waterson’s daughter, Katherine Waterston in the David Yates’ directed film.
No details on who he will play have been released yet, though the rumor is that he’ll play a goblin in the first of a planned trilogy, which kicks off on November 18, 2016.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a book written by J.K. Rowling about the adventures of Newt Scamander. Scamander himself wrote the fiction book Fantastic Beasts about his adventures in the secret community of witches and wizards as he attempted to document magical creatures. It was a textbook that Harry Potter had to read in Hogwarts. The events in the book took place 70 years prior to the time that Potter attended the magical school.
