Oh, this is exciting news… Ian McShane, currently being awesome in Ray Donovan, has signed on for Season Six of Game of Thrones.

The Deadwood actor, who older UK fans will remember as Lovejoy, will play an undisclosed role and “has a relatively small amount of screen-time during the season, yet his character is of key importance.”

Game of Thrones returns in 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
