He may be known for playing Hellboy, but Ron Perlman has just earned his wings.

The 62-year-old actor made one little boy's wish come true when he showed up in his full Hellboy makeup and costume for a day of hanging out with his big screen hero.

Six-year-old Zachary had expressed to Make-A-Wish his desire "to meet and become Hellboy." The boy is undergoing treatment for leukemia, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Enter Spectral Motion, the creature effects house that brought to life the many fantastical characters in Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy 2 (2008).

They in turn approached Perlman, who "loved the idea and donned the makeup once more," Spectral Motion said on its Facebook page.

Perlman then underwent the four-hour makeup application procedure it takes to become Hellboy and shocked a delighted Zachary -- who later got the opportunity to become a pint-sized Hellboy himself. More photos of the memorable encounter are posted on Facebook.

'Nuff Said?

As a Comic-con attendee, it makes me smile when kids genuinely enjoy grown-ass men wearing costumes. Ron Perlman is now my second favorite actor to be featured alongside Katey Sagal in a long running drama/comedy overtaking both Ed O'Neill and John Ritter.

That's a great story.  Kudos to Ron and Spectral Motion's make-up staff for going through with it, too.  Especially for not only Ron but also Zach.

Although I want to know if, when Zach was Hellbaby, he got to eat pancakes.
