A few months back, word broke that Apple would enter the scripted series game with a new drama loosely based on Dr. Dre’s life, dubbed Vital Signs, though the tech empire had nothing to say. Now, actor Sam Rockwell confirms his presence in the cast, as well as cast members like Ian McShane and Michael K. Williams, as well what we can expect from the surreal new series.
Recent weeks have seen Game of Thrones Season 6 star Ian McShane surprisingly cavalier with details of his character, especially unusual given the lengths HBO has gone to keep spoilers under wraps. Enough time has even passed that the surprise has reached McShane himself, who has a surprisingly Swearengen response to fans.
Game of Thrones has taken the spoiler warnings against Season 6 far more seriously than guest star Ian McShane, who gladly confirms his appearance involves the return of a fan-favorite character. We had our likely guesses, sure, but now McShane almost explicitly confirms which of Game of Thrones’ fallen will return to hound us once more.
Even as HBO extends the cone of silence around Game of Thrones Season 6, Ian McShane isn’t historically one to keep his mouth shut on the cable network. Ergo, the former Deadwood star offers a few new key details of his Game of Thrones Season 6 character, likely confirming another major resurrection.
Bryan Fuller may be busy putting mortals in space, but that hasn’t stopped him from appointing American Gods at home. Following the initial announcement of Shadow Moon, Fuller reveals that Deadwood’s foul-mouthed Ian McShane will take the coveted regular role of Mr. Wednesday, himself among the famed American Gods.
Hope of hopes, the long-awaited Deadwood revival got our hopes ups a few months back with talk that the movie reunion had finally gotten off the ground, but in the world of TV, months can be a lifetime. Now, HBO’s president swears up and down that the movie will happen, just as soon as David Milch finds the opportunity (and cast).
Game of Thrones Season 6 has enough mysteries on its plate to fill a banquet, but one among them has gone largely overlooked. We may not know who Deadwood alum Ian McShane will play in his brief appearance, though new word suggests he may have something to do with returning a fan-favorite character into the mix.
Reviving old TV series practically seems like old hat at this point, though HBO’s Deadwood ranks up among Firefly as a fabled reunion we’d come to relinquish hope for. Well, you may want to start practicing your swears, as HBO has unofficially resumed negotiations for a Deadwood movie, as confirmed by one its stars.
We don’t know who Ian McShane is playing in Game of Thrones and the original announcement seemed to indicate that his role may remain a secret for at least a little while. We do know that his screen time will be limited but that “his character is of key importance.” With only those clues to go on, we can narrow this down. There are five characters that we think he can play in Game of Thrones season six.
Pardon the pun, but all the cloak and dagger mystery of Game of Thrones Season 6 just got a major shot to the gut. The 2016 return to Westeros just swore in its biggest addition yet, adding Al Swearengen himself, Deadwood alum Ian McShane for a major new role.
