Body actor Doug Jones has played too many creatures to list, but he’s got a knack for aquatic cryptids. He played the amphibious Abe Sapien in Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy movies, and will be playing a similar monster in The Shape of Water (also helmed by Del Toro) this December. What most fans don’t know, however, is that Jones played another “Fish Man” in a gruesome Scooby Doo parody vid from Nerdist!
