Ian McShane

by Charles Pooter

While channel hopping though the effluence that passes for British TV, I stopped on Sky 3, which was showing HBO's Deadwood. It was excellent. A well plotted Western TV series with swearing and everything! I was very surprised to see that the character Al Swearengen, proprietor of the Gem Saloon, is played by Ian McShane. Yes, Lovejoy himself:

...apparently he has even won a Grammy. This makes me wonder if any other British TV antique dealers will go on to star in HBO dramas. Will we see Eric Knowles getting whacked by Vito Spatafore or will David Dickinson end up in Oz, buying drugs from Adebisi?:
