Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have our first look at Shadow and Mad Sweeney duking it out at Jack’s Alligator Bar in Bryan Fuller’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods for Starz.
This picture alone makes me almost as gleeful as Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday looks as he watches the fight. You can just tell that the casting for each of these characters, not to mention the set, are dead on.
Additionally, Fuller recently announced Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, which seems about as perfect as perfection can get, and Demore Barnes as Mr. Ibis. Plus, earlier this month, we found out that Gillian Anderson was cast as Media.
I think I’m dreaming. This really is going to be amazing.
