The cast list for AMERICAN GODS is growing. In addition to the recent news that Gillian Anderson has been cast in the new series, Starz has announced that Orlando Jones and Demore Barnes will also be joining the cast.
Jones will play Mr. Nancy, “the old African trickster god more commonly known as Anansi, and one of Mr. Wednesday’s (Ian McShane) oldest confidantes. Like Wednesday, Nancy is ready to bring this new America (and its new gods) to its knees, desperate to light a fire and watch the whole world burn.”
Demore Barnes will play Mr. Ibis, “the keeper of stories, past and present, and he recounts them with great relish. His old fashioned sensibilities do not preclude a wry wit.”
