Ian McShane Likes The Kiddies

Look at Ian McShane's upcoming roster of performances and you'll be forgiven for thinking he's sick of the sight of himself.

A voice in Coraline, a voice in Kung Fu Panda, the voice of Iorek Byrnison in The Golden Compass. Family films, and not one requiring more than a little bit of mic time in the studio.

After those, however, he'll be getting his mug back on the silver screen as Andy Samberg's evil stepfather in The Lonely Island's Hot Rod. It's a good role, but then I'd say that about Rip Torn's part in Freddy Got Fingered and he refuses to acknowledge that the film even exists.

It's nice to see ol' Lovejoy can still get good roles.
