IAN MCSHANE (Frank Powell) will next be seen in Paramount's "Case 39,” in which he plays a detective opposite Renée Zellweger. McShane starred opposite Matthew McConaughey in the Warner Bros. true-life drama "We Are Marshall” and in Woody Allen's "Scoop” alongside Scarlett Johansson and Hugh Jackman.

He is currently filming the adventure fantasy "The Dark Is Rising,” directed by David L. Cunningham, in which he plays Merriman Lyon. Following production, Ian will relocate to New York City to return to Broadway in Daniel Sullivan's revival of Harold Pinter's "The Homecoming.” It's a 40th anniversary for both as Ian made his Broadway debut in a production of "The Promise” in 1967, the same year "The Homecoming” made its Broadway debut.

McShane's unique voice will be heard in two upcoming DreamWorks Animation releases, first as Captain Hook in "Shrek the Third,” due out this year, as well as the voice of the villainous snow leopard Tai Lung in "Kung Fu Panda,” which will hit theaters in 2008.

He will be voicing the role of Mr. Bobinksy in Laika Entertainment's first animated feature, "Coraline,” an adaptation of Neil Gaiman's international best-selling book and directed by Henry Selick. In addition, he voiced the role of Iorek Byrnison in "His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass” alongside Nicole Kidman and directed by Chris Weitz.

Voted by People Magazine in 2006 as "TV's Sexiest Villain,” McShane is still capturing audiences as the charismatic and alluring Al Swearengen in HBO's hit series "Deadwood.” In 2005, he carried home the coveted Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Drama, and also received a 2005 Emmy and SAG nomination for Lead Actor for his versatile Swearengen performance.

Having starred in over thirty films including the recent critically acclaimed indie "Nine Lives,” written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, McShane's impressive résumé also includes roles in "The Battle of Britain,” "The Last of Sheila,” "Villain” (co-starring Richard Burton) and "Sexy Beast.”

McShane's diverse career in both British and American television includes the seminal 1970s miniseries "Roots” and the BBC and BBC America's "Trust.” He has played starring roles in many superb miniseries, including "Whose Life Is It Anyway?” for Granada TV; "Wuthering Heights” for the BBC; and Harold Pinter's Emmy Award-winning "The Caretaker.” McShane played Judas in NBC's "Jesus of Nazareth” directed by Franco Zeffirelli, and Prince Rainer in the network's "The Grace Kelly Story.” He also played the title role in Masterpiece Theatre's exceptional miniseries "Disraeli.”

In the late '80s McShane produced, directed and starred in the much-adored series "Lovejoy” for the BBC and A&E, which is currently enjoying a revival with audiences worldwide.
