Casting news! Firstly, here’s the current cast listings for American Gods on IMDB. The aforementioned casting of McShane as Mr. Wednesday is perfect, of course. Jonathan Tucker is playing Shadow’s former cellmate. This one I am unsure of. I like him - he was great in Season 7 of Justified - but you know this is an important role. So we’ll see.
Crispin Glover is playing Mr World, which is yes please just get Crispin Glover into it in any way possible. I missed that Emily Browning had been cast as Laura. Sean Harris - perhaps most famously (but not best) seen as playing a stupid scientist amongst a bunch of other stupid scientists in Prometheus - is cast as Mad Sweeney.
News recently is that is that Cloris Leachman and Peter Stormare are joining the cast (Zorya and Czernobog). Part of this case is just amazing. Hope the rest and the writing hold up.
