HELLBOY star Ron Perlman is set to step into Arnold Schwarzenegger's CONAN THE BARBARIAN shoes by voicing the gruff hero in a new cartoon film.

The actor will voice the Barbarian in CONAN: RED NAILS, the first animated film featuring the mythical barbarian.

Perlman will join CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION beauty Marg Helgenberger and Star Wars veteran Mark Hamill as the voices behind the project.
