Adapted from the award-winning novel of the same title, American Gods follows the story of a war brewing between old and new Gods: the traditional Gods of mythological roots from around the world, steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of Gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and travelling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but one of the older Gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.
The cast of American Gods includes Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon; Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday; Emily Browning as Laura Moon; Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney; Yetide Badaki as Bilquis; Bruce Langley as Technical Boy; Crispin Glover as Mr. World; Jonathan Tucker as Low Key Lyesmith; Gillian Anderson as Media; Kristin Chenoweth as Easter; Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya; Peter Stormare as Czernobog; Omid Abtahi as Salim; Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy; Chris Obi as Anubis; Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis; Corbin Bernsen as Vulcan and Mousa Kraish as The Jinn.
