Doug Jones will provide performance and movement references for the Silver Surfer in the upcoming sequel film The Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Jones will take part in a process similar to that in which Andy Serkis portrayed Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The voice casting of Silver Surfer has yet to be determined, the trade paper reported.
Jones is widely known for his performance and mime-like work under prosthetics. He has become a regular player in the oeuvre of director Guillermo del Toro, who previously cast Jones in 1997’s Mimic and 2004’s Hellboy. Jones also co-stars in del Toro’s upcoming Pan’s Labyrinth, in dual roles as Pan and the villainous Pale Man. Labyrinth is set to open Dec. 29.
