2009 Fangoria Horror Hall of Fame inductee, he’s probably
the most famous person you’ve never seen. After a twenty-three-year
career under heavy makeup, but in such memorable roles as the
goofy zombie Billy Butcherson in Hocus Pocus,
Doug Jones was thrust to the forefront as the blue fish-man
sidekick Abe Sapien in Hellboy. He took this
kind of work to new heights with his award-nominated dual role
as Pan and the Pale Man in the multi-Oscar-winning
Pan’s Labyrinth. He also played the Silver
Surfer in 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and three
roles, including his multi-award-nominated performance reprising
Abe Sapien, in Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Critics
have loved his TV guest work in the highly praised “Skin
& Bones” episode of NBC’s Fear Itself,
as the lead gentleman in Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s
“Hush” episode, and in episodes of CSI
and Criminal Minds. He has made several film appearances
using his own flexible face, including the upcoming indie release
of My Name Is Jerry. Be looking for more of Doug’s
epic, costumed character work in 2010’s Legion

About Josh “Ponceman”
And what of the one they call Ponceman? Despite the challenges
accompanying Down Syndrome in a world where people make judgments
without any real knowledge of those they judge, nothing has
stopped the Ponceman on his quest to become an actor. Comedy
goo oozes from his pores. He bleeds wit and weeps tears of pure
ha-ha-larity. He is an actor with subtle/sledgehammer performances,
playing such characters as the Retarded Policeman,
MC Outdoorz’s sidekick DJ Ponce, and
the hot, foxy, easy-on-the-eyes, and easy in general Poncietta.
And the drama has been kickin’ too. His performance in
the short film Wunderkammer, which premiered at Sundance
2009, has brought him accolades from audiences and peers alike.
