Ron Perlman is currently making the press rounds in support of this weekend's only major release Season of the Witch, and of course talk soon turned to his role as Conan's father Corin in this August's Conan the Barbarian reboot. Apparently he won't be in the movie for very long, but he does makes up for his absence with a brutal fight sequence that is sure to please longtime fans of the popular comic.
Here is what he had to say:
I play Conan's father. There's big-time sword action. But I'm only in the movie for 10 minutes. I can't tell everything, but the first sequence is huge. It's epic. All I can tell you is that I work with the Conan who's 11 years old. And there's a jump cut to Conan the adult, and I'm no longer on the scene. I don't want to give away anything. I never worked with Jason Momoa, who's the adult Conan. I only worked with this kid [Leo Howard], who's a phenomenal actor. And he's like a North American champion of swords since he was 4 years old. He had a black belt [in martial arts] by the time he was 4. He's a swordsman and he's mind-boggling. He made me look like a piker."
