Doug Jones – Dr. Havel Allard
This multi-award winning actor is possibly the most famous person you wouldn’t recognize. After a 28-year career under heavy make-ups, but in memorable roles such 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 roles as ‘Pan’ and the ‘Pale Man’ in the multi-Oscar winning PAN’S LABYRINTH. He also played the ‘Silver Surfer’ in FANTASTIC 4: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER, and the award-winning performance reprising ‘Abe Sapien’ in HELLBOY II: The Golden Army. His favorite movie as a “human” is the sweet, underdog title role in MY NAME IS JERRY.

This niche in science fiction / horror / fantasy / comic book films garnered Doug Jones a coveted slot in FANGORIA Magazine’s Hall Of Fame in 2008.
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 as the harrowing ‘William Barrow’ in MTV’s popular TEEN WOLF. You can also see him as a goofy recurring neighbor in ABC’s comedy THE NEIGHBORS. Most recently, Doug joined the series regular cast of Steven Speilberg’s FALLING SKIES on TNT, and continues with the show as the smart, helpful alien ‘Cochise.’
The newer medium of Web Series has been good to Doug with series regular, recurring, and guest roles on the popular shows THE GUILD, DRAGON AGE-REDEMPTION, FALLOUT-NUKA BREAK, LEAGUE OF S.T.E.A.M., THE JEFF LEWIS 5-MINUTE COMEDY HOUR, CHATROOM OF SOLITUDE, THE DANGER ELEMENT, and the hilarious RESEARCH with Barry Bostwick.
Doug also loves short films with a special purpose, and has starred in a few that he loves to talk about — THE BUTTERFLY CIRCUS about a man born without limbs who finds a sense of family; SUDDEN DEATH! a hilarious musical; and THE CANDY SHOP addressing the harrowing issue of child sex trafficking happening right here in the USA.
