Britain World Premiere of Cuban FuryIf you want to win the "Game of Thrones," you don't play nice. The best way is to be as funny as Tyrion Lannister, as foul-mouthed as The Hound, and as badass as Arya Stark. So Ian McShane can spoil whatever he bloody hell wants about the show he'll be on for one episode in Season 6 -- he just won the whole game with "tits and dragons." Come on, it's gold!

McShane basically spoiled his role in a series of interviews, spelling out that he brings back a character who was thought to have died. Here's what the "Deadwood" alum told BBC Breakfast:

"My character is an ex-warrior who's become a peacenik. So I have this group of peaceful...it's like a cult, peaceful tribe... who have brought back...I bring back this beloved character that everyone thinks is dead. So, I'll leave it at that."


Some fans (especially book readers) thought that was a pretty big spoiler, but don't expect an apology from McShane. Here's what he told the Telegraph about the reaction:

"You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f---ing life. It's only tits and dragons."


GORGEOUS. Put it on a T-shirt, stat! Everyone should wear that slogan to this year's Comic-Con. Bless him. Of course, fans know there's more to the HBO show and George R.R. Martin's book series than that, but it's so hilariously Grumpy Old Westerosi Man of him to dismiss it like that.

McShane really doesn't give the first sh-t about the show, adding to the Telegraph:

"They asked me if I wanted to do Game of Thrones and I said, 'Sure, I'll be able to see my old pals Charlie Dance [Tywin Lannister] and Stephen Dillane [Stannis Baratheon]' and they said, 'No, we've killed them off.' I wasn't sure whether I could commit, but then they said it would only be for one episode, so I said, 'So that means I must die at the end of it. Great, I'm in.'"


He may not die at the end, that's not always the way it works, but his casual attitude -- I'll just go on the most popular show in the world to hang out with old friends, oh are they not on anymore? -- is so too-cool-for-school it has actually won some fans over. Of course, some fans are offended and think he's being an "arrogant arsehole," but if we all agreed on everything, life would be boring.

"Game of Thrones" Season 6 premieres Sunday, April 24 on HBO.
