Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film The Shape of Water marks the first time Hollywood’s go-to fish man Doug Jones will play the lead in a del Toro movie. He’s usually a big part of the cast, but secondary to the protagonist. Not this time. He’ll be playing a half-man-half-fish being who’s being studied by scientists until an empathetic woman takes pity on him, and that’s about all we know, plot-wise. But Jones has been pretty talkative about the project, and gave a few more clues in a new recent interview.
