Crave

The mind is the only bastion of sanity. Inside we’re meticulous prisoners, making thousands of decisions a day just to keep our keel straight. From blinking to sniffling to ordering a pizza there isn’t a single moment spared the conflict of possibly doing something different at that exact time. At the controls we’re in charge, often times falling back on auto-pilot; letting our quiet subconscious take the reigns, silently navigating us through a world taken for granted in all its pandemonium and possibilities. Aiden (played feverishly by Josh Lawson) makes a living as a crime-scene photographer, snapping graphic images and selling them to interested buyers. His days are long and monotonous: checking the police scanner for possible work, chatting with his cop buddy Pete (Ron Perlman) and attending 12 step programs to keep busy. He believes in God, tells him of his plans to be a better man and about the man he wants to become. On the outside he’s sheepish. Tucked inside an unassuming package of an everyday guy with a scruffy beard and near permanent half smile. Inside though, there’s someone else grabbing at the controls, working overtime to let it be known they want their turn. Someone with a similar voice but a whole different perspective on how things should work.

Ron Perlman has been a force in television and film for three decades. He’s no stranger to fans, especially those he won as Hellboy and as Clay Morrow on Sons of Anarchy, and he’s appeared in a handful of movies every year since 1993 (with 1996 and 1999 being the only years he appeared in only one). You know him. You love him. Now, we’re ready to pronounce 2011 The Year of The Perlman because while he’s worked steadily in movies small and big alike for a long time, this was the year that he really ate his spinach and showed his face in an almost absurd amount of flicks. What’s more, his performances spanned the quality spectrum enough to earn him the Shyamalan Award For Bizarrely Up and Down Work. It’s important to note that his acting was rock steady throughout, but even with (and with the addition of his talents), he was in some terrible (and some amazing) movies. From prestige films, to independent action, to summer epics, to that one thing with Nic Cage, Ron Perlman was everywhere doing everything.
