Providence, RI, October 17, 2015 –(PR.com)– With just three weeks before The Biggest Show in the Smallest State, Rhode Island Comic Con announces a rare convention appearance by Selma Blair, widely known for her role as Liz Sherman in Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II (2008). Blair’s appearance rounds out a Hellboy cast reunion for the Rhode Island convention, running November 6th through the 8th at the Rhode Island Convention Center and the Dunkin Donuts Center arena.

Blair joins Hellboy cast mates, Ron Perlman and Doug Jones, at the three-day convention. She is scheduled to appear Saturday November 7th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. only.

In addition to her role as Liz Sherman, Blair has also appeared in Cruel Intentions, and is currently filming American Crime Story, in the role of Kris Jenner. Most recently, she co-starred with Charlie Sheen in the popular television series Anger Management as Kate Wells.

Attendees of The Rhode Island Comic Con will enjoy opportunities to meet the actors face-to-face, as well as take advantage of autograph and photo opportunities.

Ron Perlman Would Like You to Help Make ‘Hellboy 3′ Happen

Ron Perlman has been trying for years to make Hellboy 3 a reality, and even seven years later he isn’t giving up. The actor took to social media to rally fan support for his dream project. This time, he got co-stars Doug Jones, Selma Blair, and Jeffrey Tambor to chime in as well. See the Ron Perlman Hellboy 3 campaign after the jump.

The latest Ron Perlman Hellboy 3 campaign started on Twitter and Facebook.

It’s great that these stars are so eager and willing to dive into another Hellboy movie. But as they say, wishes aren’t horses, and it’s unclear whether Perlman’s latest campaign will actually get anywhere. The first two Hellboys were modest successes, financially speaking, but they clearly weren’t big enough to guarantee a sequel.

Perlman and others have tried valiantly to get a Hellboy 3 off the ground. It seems like every few months for the past several years, we’ve seen another quote from Perlman or director Guillermo del Toro saying how badly they want to make it happen. But at this point, even del Toro has admitted it probably won’t come together anytime soon.

The major sticking point is money, as it so often is. “Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively,” del Toro told Reddit last year. “But it is proven almost impossible to finance.” He added, “[W]e have gone through basically every studio and asked for financing, and they are not interested.”

That’s not to say Perlman shouldn’t try. Things do change. Comic book movies are hotter than ever, and del Toro might have a hit in this fall’s Crimson Peak. Plus, if Hellboy 3 is unlikely to happen as it stands, it definitely won’t happen without people like Perlman reminding studios and financiers that, hey, there’s still an audience for a Hellboy 3 out there.

To show your support, tweet under #HellboyIII. It can’t hurt, right?
