Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods continues to be rather meticulous while using casting to date, and today the floodgates may have started out. Not only has Sean Harris joined up with in the favorite part of Mad Sweeney, but so too has American Gods observed its Bilquis and Technological Boy.
According to TVLine, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation baddie Harris plays Mad Sweeney as “some sort of down on his good luck leprechaun who is having a difficult time understanding how he missing his charm as well as way. Always up for a good combat, Sweeney is never deprived whilst in the employment of Mr. Wednesday.”
Additionally, Yetide Badaki will play Bilquis since “an ancient goddess of love that craves the praise she inspired in eras long gone,” as well as Bruce Langley‘’s “Technical Boy” as “a New God who’s going to be purveyor of all things technology. Needing to prove himself, as well as hungry for admiration and power, he / she struggles to keep his impulsivity and petulance in check, making her dangerously unpredictable.”
To time, the series functions The 100 star Ricky Lower as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednedsay along with Emily Browning as Shadow’s wife Laura Silent celestial body.
For those unfamiliar with Sandman originator Gaiman’s novel, American Gods employs ex-convict Shadow Moon, whom partners up with strange con-man Mr. Wednesday (confidentially a god herself), becoming embroiled within a battle between basic mythological gods who have gone down out of style, as well as the “new” American gods based on hpye, technology and celebrity.
Hannibal creator Fuller as well as Heroes alum Michael Green will write and as well as showrun the series, having Gaiman acting as EP (and writing a few episodes), produced by FremantleMedia North America, as well as shooting set to begin with in Toronto within April. As with Hannibal, Donald Slade will also direct symptoms (including the pilot), as well as produce.
We’ll listen to plenty more illuminating in the coming several weeks, but what else might we be expecting from Starz and Fuller’ohydrates adaptation of American Gods?
