To promote the upcoming release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army
, the film's distributer has teamed with NBC to create promos for the movie featuring NBC show stars. These hilarious and brief clips have been airing between their hit summer series like America's Got Talent
and are so unexpected that they've caught the attention of many TV viewers.
Two of the clips feature Hellboy and Chuck
's Chuck (Zachary Levi
) hanging out and playing video games. Seeing as how both have experience being involved with top secret government agencies, and how both are just big kids at heart, their not-so-unlikely partnership is especially amusing to watch.
Several of the clips have already been posted online. Two involve Chuck and Hellboy, as seen here:
Hellboy also found himself wandering onto the set of American Gladiators
and meeting one of the series' breakout gladiators, Wolf
. Thinking him a new gladiator in a fancy costume, Wolf hands Hellboy a joust and . . . well, see for yourself:
Finally, Hellboy sat down with James Lipton, star of the NBC-owned Bravo series Inside the Actor's Studio
. In addition to a clip discussing Hellboy having to fight literal demons in addition to personal demons, he also discussed what it's like to be a giant demon in today's harsh and judgmental world:
Hellboy II: The Golden Army
is the sequel to the 2004 action move Hellboy
. In the first film, Hellboy battled a resurrected Rasputin and a regenerating hellbeast. This time, Hellboy is reunited with his other super-powered cohorts and must take on a whole new otherworldly evil. Hellboy II: The Golden Army
will be released in theaters on July 11.
In the meantime, new episodes of American Gladiators
starring Wolf can be seen every Monday on NBC. Assuming his back isn't broken after Hellboy's tremendous high five, Zachary Levi will return to NBC when Chuck
begins airing its second season on Monday, September 29 at 8pm.
