Out of make-up, you may not be familiar with Doug Jones. But odds are you've seen the 'The Shape of Water' star for years and didn't realize it.

With the 90th Academy Awards this weekend, all eyes are on 'The Shape of Water' with the most nominations at 13. However, its a crime that the movie wasn't nominated for Best Makeup or Best Actor for Doug Jones' performance as the Amphibian Man. But who is Doug Jones?

If you see Doug Jones without heavy make-up, you'll likely wonder what you've seen him in. But with over 150 acting credits since the mid 80s, you've probably seen Doug Jones many times on both the big and small screens. Trained in the art of Mime at college, Jones parlayed that experience into a career as possibly the most successful make-up specialized actor of all time.

So what has Doug Jones done that you've seen? Here are some of his more recognizable roles...
