My "in" with Ian McShane?

Maybe I can parlay my "night job" as a "sportswriter" into some quality sit-down time with Mr. Albert Swearengen himself.

How so, you might ask?

Well, it turns out Ian McShane is something of a Detroit sports fan. Tell me you ever would've figured that.

From a Q&A at

SI: You moved to Venice Beach in 2003, when you signed on for the Deadwood role. Have you become immersed in any of the Los Angeles teams?

McShane: My wife is American and she's from Detroit. My teams are the Red Wings and Pistons. I am very sad that Brendan Shanahan has left the Red Wings and Ben Wallace has left the Pistons.

Me too, Ian. Me too. I wouldn't mind throwing one of Al's favorite terms at Mr. Wallace, though.
