Jones Conflicted Over Silver Surfer Voice

by | May 16, 2007 | Comments

Most people would love to have a voice like Laurence Fishburne. Doug Jones has mixed feelings about it. He spent months performing the Silver Surfer for "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" and only found out last month when the announcement was made that his voice would not remain in the final film.

"This is a painful issue for me," Jones said. "For any actor, it would be. No actor wants to see a portion of their performance taken away, myself included, especially when I really like the sound of the Surfer that I gave. A lot of people involved with the film told me that they got goose bumps and chills when I would talk as the Silver Surfer, so I am sorry to see that go."

On the other hand, Jones gives props to his replacement. "Now, that being said, I also want to say Laurence Fishburne is a fantastic actor. You could do worse and I’m very honored to be billed alongside of him. That’s great. I also think 20th Century Fox knows how to market a film much better than I do, and if this is what it took to get people in seats, God bless ’em and good luck. I have to back away at this point and let them do what they need to do."


Doug Jones: From "Silver Surfer" to "Golden Army."

Jones has moved on to "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army," but should "Rise" raise the demand for more Surfer, it might not be such an easy gig the second time. "We’ll have a look at that when it happens. The studio does have options for part two and three for me. I did sign a three picture deal going in so we’ll always investigate what’s up for the next movie."
