Warning: Game of Thrones spoilers ahead! This Sunday, the Game of Thrones audience was all too briefly introduced to the magic of Ian McShane in "The Broken Man." McShane delivered one of the most effective and powerful speeches in the series' history, before being brutally murdered for his inherent goodness. Because, Thrones. The Deadwood actor must have inspired his former boss, because iconic TV producer/Deadwood creator David Milch has taken it upon himself to introduce audiences to what they missed by reading the full passage from George R.R. Martin's novel that McShane's indictment of war was based on. Take a look below. »

Premiering tonight at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival is Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir, a neo-noir-infused horror film that follows a reporter (Jessica Lowndes) investigating a mysterious man by the name of Jebediah Crone (Dayton Callie), who collects the rooms of violent crime scenes as part of his plan to build a home based entirely upon murder. Abattoir also co-stars Lin Shaye, Joe Anderson, J. Larose, and Michael Paré.
Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Bousman about his return to horror for his latest film, why he thrives on making “un-makeable” films, and the long journey of Abattoir from page to screen.
[Writer’s Note: Full disclosure, my significant other (and sometimes contributor to Daily Dead) edited Abattoir, so while we will not be reviewing it, we thought an interview with Bousman would be an appropriate way to give Daily Dead readers insights into the film.]
Let’s start at the beginning and talk about the evolution of Abattoir from the graphic novel to the feature film version. This has been a long time coming.

“Violence is a disease.”
Possession, loss, reclamation; these are mile markers on the endless circuit of war down which great houses and their hapless draftees trudge, marching ever lower on a corkscrew path like a frozen whirlpool, like a huge mouth sucking up men and spitting out corpses. But why? Why keep fighting even, as Jaime says, after the war is over? To fix one’s own mistakes and reclaim pride of place as Cersei does in trying to make an ally of Olenna? To honor pacts a thousand years old? Or simply, like the Blackfish, to die at home instead of in the wilderness? It’s that last that resonates most strongly through ‘The Broken Man,’ an episode with the beaten soldier firmly on its mind.
The first walking wounded to stump his way onto the screen is none other than Sandor Clegane, the erstwhile Hound. Having survived his »

Ian McShane is currently in a pretty good groove, appearing on the most recent episode of “Game Of Thrones” and filming the upcoming Starz series “American Gods.” But it’s still his role in “Deadwood” a decade ago that is his best loved. The good news is that HBO confirmed their commitment to a “Deadwood” movie earlier […]

Along with Reeves, another familiar face returning for this outing is former "Deadwood" alum Ian McShane who reprises his role of The Continental Hotel's proprietor, Winston. McShane has offered some additional details about the next instalment to EW, confirming that "Burnt" actor Riccardo Scamarcio is playing the villain in the film in which Reeves' John Wick is called upon by a former associate.
Said associate plans to take control of a Rome-based 'shadowy international assassins' guild' with Scamarcio's character serving as the current head of the guild. McShane praises his co-workers and confirms the sequel picks up shortly after the events of the first film:
“I'm kind of the only one left from the first ['John Wick']. This is same kind of premise. It's not like two years later, »

“Game of Thrones,” you are a cruel god. You bring us the delightful Ian McShane as Ray, the leader of a free group of people living in peace and building a simple country sept. The amiable Ray was highly entertaining as he dispensed simple wisdom and led a peaceful community not nearly as violent or as hard-drinking as the one located in Deadwood, S.D.
And then, “Game of Thrones,” you killed him. But it was hard not to see that coming. It wasn’t by chance that “The Broken Man” ended by focusing on two characters who were completely alone. This episode — like much of the rest of this saga — was about the building of strange alliances and uneasy but necessary coalitions. »

What is dead may never quite die the first time on "Game of Thrones."
If ever an episode needed an extra 10 minutes, it's "Game of Thrones" Season 6, Episode 7, "The Broken Man." The June 5 episode was only 51 minutes, the shortest episode of Season 6 since the 50-minute premiere, just starting the Riverrun siege storyline, stabbing Arya Stark, and introducing (then immediately eliminating) an awesome new character.
The good news is that the next three episodes are much longer, including a super-sized finale. But the bad news is the season is already wrapping up right when it's just starting to pick up.
"Deadwood" alum Ian McShane returned to HBO for the one-off episode he spoiled himself as bringing back Sandor Clegane, aka The Hound. His peace-loving septon character, Brother Ray, was like a cross between Septon Meribald and the Elder Brother of the book. In "A Storm of Swords," Septon Meribald gave a great speech about broken men, »

HBO's western drama was filled with dozens of colorful characters supported by superb performances, but no single one was more beloved than Ian McShane's saloon owner Al Swearengen.
With that show having wrapped a decade ago now, there's been talk of a revival ever since but none of it had much weight until recently when a few months ago the network confirmed that a film wrap-up of the series is "going to happen" and they're ready to proceed when creator David Milch is.
In a new interview with EW this week, McShane says he's very enthusiastic about potentially returning to the role and that Milch is currently in the midst of writing the script:
"Of course I'd love to reprise that. How could one not, when it was snatched away rather unjustly by a combination of forces we'll never know about – hubris or money or whatever. But [Deadwood] certainly finished too early. »

Deadwood is one of the many HBO shows that had its life cut too short. Ever since the series was canceled, there have been talks of creator David Milch wrapping the series up with a film. One year a Deadwood movie appears likely, the next year it’s reported as dead. A few months ago, though, HBO confirmed “it’s going to […]

He played the character of Al Swearengen on the hit TV show Deadwood, which ran for three seasons over a decade ago, and now Ian McShane has chimed in on the movie, which is said to be in the works at HBO with series head David Milch currently penning the screenplay.
The actor, who appears on this season of Game Of Thrones, which also plays on HBO, spoke with Entertainment Weekly, saying that he would absolutely love to reprise his role.
“How could one not, when it was snatched away rather unjustly by a combination of forces we’ll never know about – hubris or money or whatever. But [Deadwood] certainly finished too early. At the time, most of us working on the show were incredulous. It’s been announced by HBO so its not like I’m saying it. I know for a fact David is working on the script. It »
