I just re-watched Hellboy from 2004. At the beginning of the movie, I thought, again, as I have every time I watched this movie, what a perfect fit Ron Perlman is for the role. This time, though, I started wondering, realizing that I don't know anything about the guy except that he played Hellboy and Vincent in the TV show Beauty and the Beast. Before, that wouldn't have bothered me. Today, I went to Wikipedia and looked him up. I found myself relieved that it said in there that he described himself as a lifelong Democrat in November 2016, and found myself tremendously relieved.
Does anybody remember not caring about the political views of the actors in the movies we liked?
