I got to meet him once, he was supposed to be teaching at our math camp all week but something came up and he could only swing by for a day. Still, it was enough to see he was exactly the character he appears to be. Fascinating guy.

If Ian McShane does not play this guy in the movie, it'll be a crime.

That guy is frightening looking. Billy Connolly would be better.
