The above image is truly the stuff of nightmares, Ron Perlman in drag in a new comedy called Frankie Go Boom. Now, I know comedy is not usually our thing here at HCF, but every now and then something turns up which warrants some coverage, and this most certainly does. Just look at that image and tell me you are not a little unsettled by it!
Ron Perlman, bless him, is fully aware of his unique facial features, features which have probably done his career more good than harm. When discussing the film, which will debut at the SXSW festival, he said: “you’ll see me be the ugliest broad you’ve ever seen, in the history of womanhood. I can’t wait to see it. I have not seen it yet, but it’s quite funny.”
SXSW described the film:
A comedy about two brothers, a girl with a broken heart, a sex tape, an angel and a pig…
Frank (CHARLIE HUNNAM) has been tortured, embarrassed, and humiliated — usually on film — by his brother Bruce (CHRIS O’DOWD) his entire life. Now that Bruce has finally kicked drugs and turned his life around, things should be different. But when Frank’s one-night stand with a distressed young woman (LIZZY CAPLAN) goes not quite as planned, Bruce’s camera is ready, as always, to capture it…and share it with the world.
