When you’re Guillermo del Toro and you’re making a new film that features a fish-like man (a merman, basically), there’s really only one guy for the job: Doug Jones. The famously prosthetic-friendly character actor has appeared in several del Toro projects, including Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth and The Strain, and recently reunited with the filmmaker for his next film, The Shape of Water — in which he’ll play the merman, of course. Though the official synopsis is intentionally somewhat vague, Jones has revealed a few details to help fill in the blanks.

Unfortunately, The Bye Bye Man looks like a late ’90s / early ’00s horror film, complete with an opening that mimics The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and a boogeyman who seems like he’d be right at home among the villains of the post-Blair Witch wave of studio horror.

Given that 'Falling Skies' just recently started shooting its third season, due to arrive in the summer of 2013, casting announcements and new details are skittering around just about everywhere.  Earlier today we reported a few very cool bits of casting in both a former 'House' star and one of Noah Wyle's former 'ER' co-stars, but the latest news might be the coolest yet for sci-fi fans.  A major movement performer is joining the ranks, known for roles in 'Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer' and 'Hellboy,' but who is this mystery man, and what's his 'Falling Skies' role?
