Never mind what I said about Mickey Rourke maybe playing Conan's dad Corin in the new Conan movie. Vulture says a different big, weird-looking old guy will take the part of a single dad raising a barbarian: Hellboy's Ron Perlman.

Remember the days when you'd expect news of Ron Perlman replacing Mickey Rourke in a film to be about something going straight to the Sci Fi Channel? How things have changed. Now they're big names in big franchise films, competing over roles, and Sci Fi is left wondering, "Now who's going to play the battle-hardened general in Zombie Starship if Eric Roberts doesn't pick up his phone?"
