He's a fine actor; in fact, John is a major Lovejoy fan, so he was hot to get
Ian on board.

No, and I'm very pleased. I'm a huge fan of his work and have been forever. I
was knocked out when we got him...he considers it one of the best parts he's
had lately on a creative level, and he's been a kick to work with.
