In case you were wondering who an excellent counterpoint to Jessica Lange is, you can sleep easy knowing that person is Ian McShane. McShane, who’s best known for his work as the foul-mouthed and heartless Al Swearengen on HBO’s defunct Deadwood, will undoubtedly bring some brooding gravitas to Ryan Murphy‘s Halloween-y soap opera.

While American Horror Story isn’t a favorite show of this site, the hope, however unlikely, that McShane will call matron Jessica Lange a “cocksucker,” while indignantly tossing back whiskey, then storming out of the room is enough to make us mildly excited about this news.

But mostly it reminds us that we miss Al Swearengen.

He was like a father to us.

Shit just got real between the dueling Snow White projects with Snow White and the Huntsman inching ahead in the casting category by naming their first dwarf. Ian McShane, who you can currently see in theaters (next to large, natural boobs) in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, will play Caeser, the leader of the dwarves. Great casting! I’ve always said he’s got dwarf upper-management written all over him.

McShane will join Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, and Thor in the revised take on the fairy tale where the Huntsman, rather than kill Snow White, trains her to defend herself against her evil stepmother. Between this film, Relativity‘s Snow White, and The Hobbit, we’ll need a good amount of character actors to fill all these dwarf roles. And still, no phone calls to Warwick Davis? That’s messed. (THR)

Pirate battles, killer mermaids, fireballs coming right at you. Fast cuts between those elements. An Inception-esque brawwwwwwm-filled soundtrack. The new TV spot above is making you very excited to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It’s why we’re all seeking the Fountain of Youth: so we can spend eternity absorbing Disney’s marketing for the movie.

Directed by Rob Marshall, On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Penelope Cruz as Lady McPirateberg, the boobiest pirate of them all. There’s also Ian McShane‘s Blackbeard, who is totally not cool, you guys.

On Stranger Tides pillages theaters May 20, 2011 in 3D, IMAX 3D and RegularVision 2D.

Warner Bros and New Line decided on release dates for their two upcoming tentpole films. So, no, they’re not just gonna sit on an executive’s shelf as multi-million dollar dust catchers. They’re coming to theaters.

Let’s start with Rock of Ages. The cliche karaoke soundtrack turned Broadway musical turned feature film directed by Adam Shankman hits theaters June 1, 2012. Phew. For a moment there, I stopped believin’. Rock of Ages stars Tom Cruise, Mary J. Blige, Julianne “I’m From ‘Dancing With The Stars’ ” Hough and Alec Baldwin.

Meanwhile, Jack The Giant Killer, the Bryan Singer helmed fairy tale adaptation, shimmies down the beanstalk on June 15, 2012. It’s just got to steal a bunch of giant treasure first. Jack The Giant Killer stars Nicholas Hoult, Ewan McGregorStanley Tucci and Ian McShane. McAwesome cast. (TheWrap)

Actor Ian McShane will play Blackbeard the Skull-Loving Pirate in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. He’ll then jump across that thin blue line of law-abidingness and play a king in director Bryan Singer‘s ginormous fairy tale adaptation Jack The Giant Killer for New Line.

McShane plays a disapproving dad king, which I imagine will be exactly like his role in Hot Rod, only kinglier. As King Brahmwell, he will hate-on farm boy Jack (Nicholas Hoult), who’s trying to get into the royal panties of his princess daughter (Eleanor Tomlinson). Hopefully, McShane’s scepter doubles as a shotgun.

The kickass cast also includes Ewan McGregor, John Kassir, Bill Nighy and Stanley Tucci as the villainous royal advisor. (Hollywood Reporter)

Blackbeard And His Pet Skull Featured On ‘Pirates 4′ Poster http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/blackbeard-and-his-pet-skull-featured-on-pirates-4-poster/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/blackbeard-and-his-pet-skull-featured-on-pirates-4-poster/#comments Sat, 19 Mar 2011 03:42:01 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202643 It's time to liven things up with somber ol' Blackbeard from 'On Stranger Tides' and that skull he's always carrying.

A few days ago we saw Captain Jack Sparrow about to cry gentle tears in a new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides poster. Now it’s time to liven things up with somber ol’ Blackbeard and that skull he’s always carrying. The one he brings to parties as a hilarious ice breaker. Check out Disney’s newly released poster below.

Ian McShane (“Deadwood“) will play Johnny Depp‘s nemesis in the new installment of the Pirates series. At first, you might think Blackbeard’s a badass, the way he carries around a skull. But maybe he’s just a sad old actor, practicing for a Hamlet audition? Or maybe he loves his little skull and wants to protect it. That’s why he’s giving you a cold stare. He’s saying, “stay away from my Skully, who I partially named after Agent Scully from ‘The X-Files.’ That was a great show. I wish the last movie was better.” Depp’s other rivals in the film include a bunch of zombie pirates, but they don’t seem to carry human skulls, so they’re not nearly as interesting to me.

You can watch Depp fight the whole lot of them May 20th. (Cinema Blend)

Disney has dropped the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides: Longest Movie Title Ever. Johnny Depp reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, and this time Penelope Cruz is along for the bumpy ride as they search for the Fountain of Youth. I bet you he thinks that fountain is full of rum. I just bet you.

This Pirates seems to be chock full of everything that we haven’t seen in previous Pirates films. They even capitalized on the whole zombie phenomenon. This could have been intentional or the writers received a mandate to work everything ever into the film. The fourth time around you have to do that. Let’s just hope they keep it under five hours long. Kids can only take so much convoluted plotline.

Renee Zellweger Puts Up With A Lot Of Crap In ‘Case 39′ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/renee-zellweger-puts-up-with-a-lot-of-crap-in-case-39-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/renee-zellweger-puts-up-with-a-lot-of-crap-in-case-39-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Die Antwoord? Paramount has finally set a release date for Case 39. After sitting on the shelf for close to three years, the Renee Zellweger horror flick will see the light of day on October 1st. And probably DVD on October 11th. B-ZING!!! In the film, Zellweger saves a little girl from an abusive home, only to find out that evil follows the kid everywhere. People start dying all around them, and it turns into a fight for survival. That's pretty admirable. I'd be all like, "Sucks to be you. Good luck with that whole being haunted thing." Seriously though, check out the trailer after the jump. It's spooky.
