It’s been announced that American Gods actor Ian McShane will be joining the cast of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen as Professor Trevor Broom. The adoptive father of Hellboy in the comics, Broom has a genius level intellect and is well versed on the occult and paranormal phenomena. Broom adopts Hellboy when he’s a small child at the end of World War II and raises him like a son until they both join the newly formed Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD).

McShane will join actor David Harbour (Stranger Things) in the film co-written by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent/ Game of Thrones). According to reports, the film will focus on the BPRD and Hellboy facing an ancient sorceress who is seeking the destruction of mankind.
