The candid, hilarious, and inspiring memoir of the iconic star of Beauty and the Beast, the Hellboy movies, and Sons of Anarchy A classically trained actor who cut his teeth in the East Village's off-Broadway scene, Ron Perlman-a Golden Globe winner with starring roles in the Hellboy movies, Drive, Pacific Rim, and Sons of Anarchy-has traveled an offbeat path to showbiz success. His story involves rising from New York's tough Washington Heights neighborhood, enduring incredible hardships, and ignoring the naysayers who taunted him for his distinctive looks. It's a tale that demonstrates the power of persistence. With a filmography of nearly two hundred credits working alongside countless stars during his forty-year career, Perlman knows the ins and outs of filmmaking. In Easy Street (the Hard Way), he shares his inspiring story for the next generation of performers.

Professional reviews

"You donÕt need to be familiar with Ron Perlman's TV or movie career to appreciate this entertaining audiobook. PerlmanÕs down-to-earth memoir takes you backstageÑway backstageÑinto the mind of a struggling actor sorting out a life that intersects with some of the great talents of the last 30 years. What really sets this audiobook apart is the engaging honesty of the narration. Perlman has an excellent reading voice, has great comic timing (check out his chapter about the making of THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU), does accents flawlessly, and is a superb mimic (listen to his Sammy Davis, Jr., and Marlon Brando). Plea to Ron: Considering all the voice-over work you do and considering the occasional lean times described in your memoir, couldnÕt you fit in a few more audiobooks? PS: Language alert, Perlman makes regular (and effective) use of swear words. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
