by Doc on Jun.05, 2016, under Movies
X-Files alum Gillian Anderson is the latest actor to sign on for Starz’ series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, about the struggle between the old gods of mythology and the new gods that represent modern society’s influences – money, power, technology, etc.
Anderson will play Media, who is – surprise – the spokesperson for the New Gods. Ricky Whittle (The 100) portrays the protagonist Shadow Moon, an ex-con who becomes the bodyguard of conman Mr. Wednesday, who is actually on a mission to marshall the old gods in preparation for battle.
