For fans of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel, the news that STARZ would be bringing American Gods to the small screen shocked some and intrigued others. But how would they bring this unique world to life, and would they be able to do it justice? With Gaiman at the helm, and showrunners Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Dead Like Me) and Michael Green (Heroes) by his side, the answer is a resounding “yes!”
Having tapped an incredible cast that includes the likes of Ian McShane (Ray Donovan, Deadwood), Crispin Glover (Back to the Future, Willard) and Kristin Chenoweth (The West Wing, Pushing Daisies), is the icing on the proverbial cake. We sat down with a handful of the show’s extensive cast to talk about the new series, and were invigorated by the cast’s genuine passion for this project. Watch our exclusive interviews below, and make sure to catch episodes 1 & 2 before new episodes of American Gods air every Sunday at 9/8c only on STARZ.
