Ian McShane says Game of Thrones fans need to “get a f*cking life”

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year Ian McShane drew the ire of Game of Thrones fans, firstly by revealing a pretty big spoiler surrounding the return of fan favourite character The Hound, before responding to online complaints by describing the epic fantasy series as “only tits and wizards”.

Well, he’s probably not going to endear himself to fans too much with his latest comments, telling Empire (via EW) that anyone who was upset about his spoiler-dropping need to “get a fucking life.”

“Can you believe it?,” said McShane. “‘Oh, you’re giving it away.’ Firstly, you love it and secondly, you’ll have forgotten by the time it comes out. And what am I giving away? A character beloved by everybody returns. Get a fucking life. The show is huge but some fans seem to identify with it [too closely]. You want to say, ‘Have you thought about your lifestyle? Maybe you should get out a little more. »

Ian McShane Wants 'Game of Thrones' Fans to 'Get a F**king Life'

19 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ian McShane is throwing some major shade at Game of Thrones fans.

**Spoiler alert: If you’re not caught up with the latest season, stop reading here.**

The British actor appeared on the HBO series last year, making his debut as Brother Ray in a very crucial episode.

During that episode it was revealed that The Hound, played by Rory McCann, was still alive. But, prior to the episode airing, McShane shared a few too many details about his role, making many Thrones fans extremely upset.

"Can you believe it? 'Oh, you're giving it away.' Firstly, you love it," the 74-year-old actor told Empire magazine in an interview published in its April 2017 issue. "Secondly, you'll have forgotten by the time it comes out...and what am I giving away? A character beloved by everybody returns. Get a f**king life."

Ian McShane Tells Game of Thrones Fans to "Get a F--king Life"

24 February 2017 12:27 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Ian McShane? More like Ian McShade! The British star appeared on Game of Thrones for one lousy (okay, it was pretty good, but regardless) episode and not only does he appear to not respect the fans, he also seems to reckon he can tell them what to do. And what do we say to the Lord of Shade? "Not today!" McShane made his debut as Brother Ray on HBO's cult fantasy series last summer. Months earlier, he had angered many viewers who hate spoilers when he revealed in interviews what they felt was too much info about his role and the plot line and also teased the return of a character. "Can you believe it? 'Oh, you're »

Ian McShane played a memorable — albeit short-lived — role on the last season of “Game of Thrones”, but was taken to task by spoiler-averse fans last year when he seemingly let the cat out of the bag about Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) resurrection by revealing a beloved character who died would be returning. “You say the slightest […] »

Bloody New Look at American Gods [Trailer]

24 February 2017 10:40 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

I must admit that considering the release of "American Gods" is just around the corner, I'm just not that excited about the project. I'm having a hard time putting my finger on exactly why that is but I have a feeling it may have something to do with the fact that I'm still not really sure what the show is about beyond the plot that has a guy named Shadow taking the job of bodyguard to a guy named Wednesday.

Based on Neil Gaiman's much-beloved novel, the show comes to us from Bryan Fuller (of "Hannibal," "Dead Like Me," "Wonderfalls" and "Dead Like Me" fame) and Michael Green (of the short-lived but amazing "Kings," "Heroes" and "Everwood") and stars Ricky Whittle ("The 100") as Shadow, Ian McShane as Wednesday as well as Gillian Anderson, Emily Browning, Dane Cook, Peter Stormare, Or [Continued ...] »

Ian McShane Says Game of Thrones Fans Need to Get a Life

23 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ll be the first to tell you that I like Ian MacShane.  He’s one of the best “gruff” actors out there.  No one does “man” roles better than Ian MacShane with the exception of maybe Sam Elliott.  You might remember McShane appearing on Game of Thrones last season.   While he wasn’t on the show long he definitely left his mark and fans loved his appearance.   McShane, who played Brother Ray in “The Broken Man,” just said something he may very well regret about Got fans. Here’s the full rundown from Digital Spy Ian McShane was pretty awesome in his one-off

Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

American Gods features a cast that includes Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, »

"American Gods" - The Old and The New

23 February 2017 1:40 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From TorontoFilm.Net, Sneak Peek more of producer Bryan Fuller's TV series adaptation of "Sandman" author Neil Gaiman's "American Gods", premiering debuting April 20, 2017 on Starz:

"....'Shadow Moon' is a man serving three years in prison for assault. With only days remaining in his sentence, Shadow is given an unexpected early release after his beloved wife 'Laura' dies in a car accident. Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man calling himself 'Wednesday', who offers Shadow a job, he seems confident Shadow will accept.

"Arriving home, Shadow finds that the life he thought was waiting for him is gone. With no other options, he accepts Wednesday's offer. At first, it appears that Wednesday is nothing but a con artist who runs scams for cash and needs Shadow as a collaborator and bodyguard. Shadow soon learns that Wednesday is in fact the god 'Odin' of 'Norse' mythology. »

Though it was previously confirmed that Bryan Fuller’s highly anticipated small-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods would receive its world premiere at SXSW next month, we still hadn’t heard anything about when fans could expect to see it debut on Starz. However, good things come to those who wait, and the network has finally announced that the first episode of the fantasy series will be with us on Sunday, April 30 at 9:00 P.M.

Starz Sets ‘American Gods’ Premiere Date for April 30

23 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Starz’s “American Gods,” the long-gestating TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel, finally has a premiere date: April 30.

Bryan Fuller is at the helm of “American Gods,” with Ricky Wittle starring as protagonist Shadow Moon. Shadow is an ex-con who finds himself in a tug-of-war between America’s old gods — the ones brought here via millennia of immigration, like Ian McShane’s “Mr. Wednesday” (Odin) and Orlando Jones’ “Mr. Nancy” (Anansi) — and the new kids, like Gillian Anderson’s Media. America is intrinsically poor spiritual soil for gods in Gaiman’s world, leading to inevitable conflict among the generations of deities.

Other cast members include Emily Browning as Shadow’s wife Laura, Pablo Schrieber as Mad Sweeney, Jonathan Tucker as Low Key Lyesmith, Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya, Peter Stormare as Czernobog, Kristin Chenoweth as Easter, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Chris Obi »
