Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions. Their lives a mimicry. Their passions a quotation.

Trivia that mentions this person:
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides [2011]
  • Sam Claflin (Phillip) and Ian McShane (Blackbeard) had previously starred together in The Pillars of the Earth.
    John Wick [2014]
  • Ian McShane replaced Jason Isaacs as Winston.
    Hellboy [2019]
  • Milla Jovovich, according to her Instagram, wanted to work on the movie due to being a fan of both [Stranger Things (2016)] and [Deadwood (2004)], which starred David Harbour and Ian McShane respectively.
    John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum [2019]
  • Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, and Lance Reddick are the only actors to appear in all the John Wick films to date (2019).
  • The title "Parabellum" comes from the Latin phrase: "Si vis pacem, para bellum" which means "If you want peace, prepare for war." It is also an alternate name for the ubiquitous 9mm handgun cartridge ("9mm Parabellum"). The phrase itself appears three times in the movie: it is tattooed on the back of the ballerina girl in the beginning, it appears on the door of a bus outside the hotel, and Winston (Ian McShane) says it out loud later in the movie.
