Doug Jones Is Cinema’s True Master Of Disguise


Unless you’re a huge fan of Guillermo del Toro and sci-fi, you probably don’t know Doug Jones by name. But you should. This guy’s a legend and after the Oscar wins for The Shape of Water at the 2018 Academy Awards, he deserves our attention.

Odds are, you’ve probably seen him a thousand times, but didn’t know it. So here’s some of his most notable roles both under tons of make-up and even roles where he just looked like himself.

That’s some serious talent.
