Ian McShane will Portray Professor Trevor Bruttenholm in Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Ian McShane will portray Professor Trevor Bruttenholm in the upcoming Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen film.

Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm (who was originally portrayed by the late John Hurt in the first two Hellboy films) is often seen as Hellboy’s adoptive father and plays an integral role in “Big Red’s” life as well as in the formation of the B.P.R.D. in the original film and the source material. Bruttenholm has even starred in some of his own comic stories, most notably in B.P.R.D.: 1946, B.P.R.D.: 1947, and B.P.R.D.: 1948 which establishes much of the Hellboy mythos for the entire Hellboy series. read more

The character appeared in a handful of scenes across four episodes, but some internet crusaders couldn’t get over the secondary character’s death and the lack of impact it had on the main story and its main characters. “Justice for Barb” memes could soon be found all over the internets, along with wild speculation that the character wasn’t dead, or that the second season would surely right the wrongs of its predecessor. read more
