Ian McShane on Professor Broom in new ‘Hellboy’ with David Harbour

The Hellboy reboot will reimagine the demonic comic book hero with a darker take on the source material than the previous two films from director Guillermo del Toro and actor Ron Perlman.

Deadwood star Ian McShane discussed the role of Hellboy’s adoptive father and how his portrayal of professor Broom will be different from the previous version during an interview with Fandom.

“You don’t start with the birth of Hellboy… but the relationship between [Hellboy and Broom] is quite crusty. Does he trust his father? [Hellboy asks], ‘Why didn’t you kill me? I’m a monster.’ It’s a little bit of a psychological battle against Hellboy.” There’s one important moment in [the film] when [Hellboy] sort of thinks he’s fighting his own people, the outsiders. So, he’s being used by the insiders, which is me, if you like.”

McShane also noted that his performance will be a “slight homage to John [Hurt],” who portrayed professor Broom in the first two Hellboy films.

Plots details on Hellboy are currently unknown as Stranger Things star David Harbour will be taking on the title role alongside McShane (American Gods) as Broom.

Hellboy is being directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones) with Sasha Lane (American Honey) as Alice Monaghan, Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) as the Queen of Blood, Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-O) as Major Ben Daimio, Penelope Mitchell (The Vampire Diaries) as Ganeida, Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as Lady Hatton, Brian Gleeson (mother!, 28 Days Later) as Merlin, and Alistair Petrie (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Lord Adam Glaren.

Hellboy is set for release on January 11th 2019.
