    • [Was he uncomfortable with the colorful language on 'Deadwood']
      Ian McShane: No, not at all. Totally comfortable. People swear in everyday life. And the words become meaningless themselves after a time. It does get even more colourful, but it's part of it. I mean, it's been around since Chaucer, as Milch talks about himself. Language is language. Especially when he uses the vernacular in the midst of these long, complicated 19th century monologues, because it's almost like Shakespeare in terms of the complexity of the dialogue and the thoughts behind it. So it's a constant surprise, and it's a pleasure to do it.
