McShane joins Lonely Island folks for laffer

“Deadwood” star Ian McShane has been cast in Paramount Pictures’ “Hot Rod.”

Pic — a collaboration of “SNL” comedy team the Lonely Island, Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer — is being produced by Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn through their Michaels Goldwyn. Shingle’s Jill Messic exec produces.

Samberg stars as an accident-prone daredevil who plans to jump Snake River on a moped in an effort to emulate his hero Evel Knievel and win over his hard-to-please stepfather (McShane). Pam Brady wrote the script.

Schaffer is directing with Taccone taking a supporting role.

McShane next stars on the bigscreen in Woody Allen’s “Scoop,” followed by Warner Bros. Pictures’ “We Are Marshall.”
