McShane will portray Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm, a role previously played by the late great John Hurt in the Guillermo del Toro series.
Ian McShane has meanwhile been killing it in television, appearing as Mr. Wednesday in American Gods and a one-off appearance in an episode of Season 6’s Game of Thrones.
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is set to start shooting next month, but no word as yet as who will be playing the “Blood Queen”.
