Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane and Emily Browning have already joined the new series AMERICAN GODS and now Starz has announced the casting of three more series regulars: Sean Harris (THE BORGIAS) has been cast as Mad Sweeney, Yetide Badaki (AQUARIUS) as Bilquis and Bruce Langley (DEADLY WATERS) as Technical Boy.
The series, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, is being showrun by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. Here’s what we know about the characters:
Harris plays Mad Sweeney, a down on his luck leprechaun, who is having a hard time understanding how he lost his charm and way. Always up for a good fight, Sweeney is never deprived while in the employment of Mr. Wednesday.
Badaki plays Bilquis, an ancient goddess of love who craves the worship she inspired in eras long gone, and who is eager to find that same relevance in today’s world.
Langley will play Technical Boy, a New God who is purveyor of all things technology. Desperate to prove himself, and hungry for respect and power, he struggles to keep his impulsivity and petulance in check, making him dangerously unpredictable.
