Gillian Anderson has been cast in AMERICAN GODS, the new Starz series adapted from Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel of the same name.
Anderson plays Media, “the mouthpiece for the New Gods, functioning as their public face and sales representative, by taking the form of various iconic celebrities. She lives off the attention and worship that people give to screens-to their laptops, their TVs, to their iPhones in their hands while they watch their TVs. Ever the perky spokesperson, and always in control, she spins stories in whatever direction best suits her.”
Anderson joins Ricky Whittle (who will be playing the main character, Shadow Moon), as well as Ian McShane, Emily Browning, Sean Harris, Yetide Badaki and Bruce Langley in the series.
