Ron Perlman Reveals Details About His Role In CONAN THE BARBARIAN
Ron Perlman stars in the upcoming film Conan The Barbarian as Conan's father. He recently was interviewed by The Examiner where he went into details about the role.
"I play Conan’s father," Perlman said, "There’s big-time sword action. But I’m only in the movie for 10 minutes. I can’t tell everything, but the first sequence is huge. It’s epic. All I can tell you is that I work with the Conan who’s 11 years old. And there’s a jump cut to Conan the adult, and I’m no longer on the scene... I never worked with [Jason] Momoa, who’s the adult Conan. I only worked with this kid [Leo Howard], who’s a phenomenal actor. And he’s like a North American champion of swords since he was 4 years old. He had a black belt [in martial arts] by the time he was 4. He’s a swordsman and he’s mind-boggling. He made me look like a piker."
I am excited about seeing Perlman this friday in Season of the Witch opposite Nicolas Cage, As of right now the jury is still out on my interest in Conan.
Conan The Barbarian arrives in theaters on August 19, 2011.
