The candid, hilarious, and inspiring memoir of the iconic star of Beauty and the Beast,the Hellboy movies,and Sons of Anarchy.

A classically trained actor who cut his teeth in the East Village's Off-Broadway scene, Ron Perlman—a Golden Globe winner (Beauty and the Beast) with starring roles in the Hellboymovies, Drive, Pacific Rim, and Sons of Anarchy—has traveled an offbeat path to showbiz success. His story involves rising from New York's tough Washington Heights neighborhood, enduring incredible hardships, and ignoring the naysayers who taunted him for his distinctive looks. It's a tale that demonstrates the power of persistence.

With a filmography of nearly 200 credits working alongside countless stars during his forty-year career, Perlman knows the ins-and-outs of filmmaking. In Easy Street (the Hard Way), he shares his inspiring story for the next generation of performers.

Fascinating, candid, and, at times, wonderfully sentimental. I loved this book for so many reasons...the most notable was Mr. Perlman's gut-wrenching honesty. I can definitely see him thriving as a fiction writer.

Easy Street (The Hard Way) The language is not for the faint of heart. I was curious about life behind the scenes of an actor. This is Mr. Perlman's story. He writes so that his stories are very captivating. Most of the reviewers agree that once you open the book you don't put it down until you've finished. That was my experience, too. It is very charming, very funny, very eye opening, very moving. I had to check out the movies, again if I had already seen them, to experience his behind the scenes memories during filming. Being a movie star is not all that glamorous. I found most of Perlman's movies at my local library and watched those that he was most proud of.

I have  loved  Ron Perlman every since first seeing him on Beauty and the Beast.  I love his voice, his look, his acting and the man that he is.  I loved this book so much.  I am also a Sons of Anarchy fan and loved him as Clay Morrow.  The show wasn't the same after he was killed.  When he writes its like he is in your living room talking to you.  He is great and can't wait to see what he does next. Buy and Read this book.

Unfortunately, I am unable to review this book because, YET AGAIN, the lousy handling/packaging by B&N resulted in ALL the books in my order to arrive so damaged that I had to return them...These were meant as Christmas gifts, too, so, Thanks loads, B&N!!! Once again I BEG, I PLEAD, follow Amazon's model of vacu-sealing the items onto a piece of cardboard sized to the interior of the box. Just as cheap as tossing a bunch of ineffective airbags and 100% more secure!!! :(
