Actor Jeffrey Tambor talks about his portrayal of Jesse's favorite television character -- Hank Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show. Then, an interview with Doug Jones. He's tall and skinny, with a skinny face. His physicality and mime training paved the way for his performances in prosthetics for Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth and the Silver Surfer. Plus, Andrew Noz suggests the rap songs you should check out this week and God spills the truth about Noah and the Ark.

Bullseye with Jesse Thorn: Doug Jones, Jeffrey Tambor, Andrew Noz and God on Noah

Great stuff with Jeffrey Tambor, and I'm thrilled that God is going to become a (semi?) regular occurrence on Bullseye.

We've got one more appearance by God coming up in the coming weeks. You should really check out the book, it's hilarious.

Really enjoyed the interview with Doug Jones. I remember seeing Pan's Labyrinth and being blown away when I saw in the credits that the Faun and the Thin Man were both played by the same guy.

I have met Doug Jones at a horror convention. He's great. And I will bet one million dollars that he hugged Jesse within two minutes of meeting him for the first time.

If anyone hasn't seen Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (starring both Doug Jones AND Jeffrey Tambor), Jones is pretty much worth the ticket alone. He plays three or four characters in it and all of them are awesome (especially the Angel of Death, which is incredible). The story's kind of iffy in places, but because it was post-Pan's, Universal let del Toro go crazy with the production design, which makes for some remarkably gorgeous sequences.

The Troll Market and Forest God sequences are just amazing. Here's a sampling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY1HyTONAT8

So wait, why was there any part of this episode before Sam Cooke singing?

It's the only part we need.

I've twittered this idea before: In the inevitable Mass Effect movie, Doug Jones pretty much has to play a Salarian of some sorts.

You know, there's a KVLT AS FCUK genre show Jeffrey Tambor was a cast member of before Larry Sanders not mentioned here or in the extended TSOYA segment . . .Max Headroom

Well this episode of Bullseye made me cry. MAYBE I'm in an emotional places but PROBABLY it was the fucking perfect pairing of interviews about people finding their niche, with Sam Cooke to drive the point home.

I love that my old favorite show has become my new favorite show. The Tambor interview is a great example -- I really enjoyed it the first time I heard it on TSOYA, but in the context of this episode of Bullseye, it resonated even more. How great is it when Tambor teases Jesse about "alchemy?" SO GREAT!

The troll market and the forest god are the only things I remember from Hellboy 2 (oh and a few other amazing creatures, most of them by Doug Jones), but they're so *spectacularly wonderful* that they make it well worth seeing. Almost every creature in there was a practical effect! I wanted to leave the conventionally-structured superhero movie surrounding it and go live in this other, much weirder movie.

Both Hellboy movies are the best. I am not even a fan of the genre but Hellboy 1 and 2 are SUPER COOL. It's what The Punisher or the Wolverine movie should have been! Cool, not silly.

Comic book guys should be super bad ass and they should be played by Ron Perlman because he sounds like a super bad ass.
