For those gutted by yesterday's presidential-election results, the work for a better tomorrow starts today. And, well, it seems Ron Perlman was early to the jump. Taking to Facebook on Wednesday, Perlman announced himself as a challenger to Kanye West and presumably Donald Trump come 2020's presidential election. He wrote: "I am hereby using my immense Facebook presence to announce my candidacy for President of United States, 2020." He's joking — we assume — but if he's not, he really needs to telegraph the sincerity of his political aspirations more clearly! For those of you who are still capable of finding humor in the concept of write-in candidates, having Hellboy himself on the ballot should really put the nail in that coffin.
