We're just a hop and skip away from the start of filming for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, so naturally, curiosity is rising. Before heading off to Budapest for production, villain Luke Goss recently spoke to Shock Till You Drop about his bad-guy role. While he warns that he has "got so many restrictions from Universal [that] it's ridiculous," the actor has slipped a few details about Guillermo Del Toro's sequel. It's not much, but it's a start. To recap, Universal will only say that Goss is "A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures." His name is, simply "The Prince."

Now, according to the actor: "The great thing about him is he's not trying to take over the world, he's a rounded character that's not just driven by greed, and I think people are going to enjoy the depth Guillermo brings to him." What depth? Goss describes: "From Guillermo's script, without giving it away, let's just say I'm a big fan of internal pain and anguish. All of these things elicit a truthful direction rather than just greed or ego." But then he even goes a step farther: "This character, the Prince, his father's the King so... It's just a bloody great role." Just what was Goss going to say about the Prince and his King father? Will this tie into the Bible? Perhaps that's too obvious, but it certainly fits with the "Hell"ish theme. Ooo! Will Alanis play God again?! We're bound to get more tidbits as the actors try to talk around Universal's secrecy guidelines.
