‘Jack The Giant Killer’ Nabs Ian McShane

Ian McShane Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Ian McShane has got his sights set on another adventure. McShane is the latest addition to the cast of the Bryan Singer, darkly envisioned version of Jack and The Beanstalk, more appropriately titled Jack The Giant Killer. The actor joins the long list of actors already claimed by the Giant, including Nicholas Hoult as Jack, Stanley Tucci as a villain, Eleanor Tomlinson as the princess, and Bill Nighy, Ewan McGregor and John Kassir as well.

The Englishman will take on the role of the fair princess’ father, King Brahmwell, who of course disapproves of her interest in a mere farm boy, Jack. Talk about a terrifying father-in-law. I doubt anyone would think twice about crossing an angry Ian McShane. I guess this will only add to the ways Jack has to buck up his bravery in this Singer adaptation.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
