Doug Jones, who played Abe Sapien in the Hellboy live-action film, told The Continuum that he has every intention on returning for the sequel.

"I would love to be involved and I plan on being involved, but I don't have a commitment yet," Jones told The Continuum Friday night at Wizard World Los Angeles. "I recently worked with (Hellboy director) Guillero del Toro on another movie, Pan's Labyrnith, and he told me that he has big plans for Abe Sapien, and he was talking with me in those plans."

Jones performed the entire character in Hellboy, but he was voiced over by David Hyde Pierce in the final product. Jones said it was disappointing that his voice was replaced but that del Toro had his eyes on Pierce even before he was cast.

Jones' voice is being used as Abe Sapien these days, however. He is voicing the character in two direct-to-DVD animated Hellboy films.

"So hopefully, that bodes well for Part 2," he said about his voice chances in the live-action sequel.

Jones said he's already completed recording on the first film and will begin work on the second next week. Abe Sapien's role is larger in the second animated movie than the first.
