Here comes our second entry in our new comic strip series Connect Them All. In Connect Them All, every film and TV property in existence takes place within the same shared universe. Whether linked by an actor, a setting, an item, or any other possible connecting tissue, Connect Them All will explore the connections between various shows and movies.
For this week’s strip, we take a look at the recent casting of Ian McShane in season 6 of Game of Thrones. Though the British actor will fit in with his primarily Anglo-Saxon cast mates, McShane is perhaps best known for playing an American. In HBO’s 2004 series Deadwood, McShane portrayed Al Swearengen, the proprietor of The Gem Saloon, the town’s most prominent bar, stage, and brothel. Ironically, not long after McShane’s casting was announced, HBO, home to both Deadwood and Game of Thrones, stated that a Deadwood movie was in consideration. McShane’s role in Game of Thrones remains unknown.
