It’s a good week to be Ron Perlman. The cult actor isn’t usually a recognizable face, due to roles that put him behind masks and tons of prosthetic makeup (a la Hellboy). Yet the past week has seen his name pop up as an actor in demand, both as a Bruce Campbell replacement and now in a thriller that will see Perlman as a carjacker.

Hollywood Reporter announced Perlman has been cast opposite Saffron Burrows in the appropriately titled Carjacked for Arclight Films. The story is about a single mother and her child, who are both kidnapped when a bank robber jacks their ride.

It’s good to see Perlman getting his due. Who knows, if all of these roles come to fruition maybe a lot more people will start recognizing his face instead of just his name.
