SDCC 2016: ‘American Gods’ Trailer From Starz; Kristin Chenoweth Cast As Easter
  |  @   |  

The cast and producers of American Gods, the upcoming Starz television show based on the Neil Gaiman novel, made their first appearance together at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where they debuted the first trailer for the show!

Watch the trailer here below, which includes the first looks at Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Chris Obi as Mr. Jacque, Mousa Kraish as the Jinn, Peter Stormare as Czernobog, and Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya.

Also during the panel, there was a surprise casting announcement — Kristin Chenoweth has joined the series as Easter, and joined her colleagues on stage at the Con. The actress previously worked with co-showrunner Bryan Fuller on Pushing Daises.

Let me just say that being a great fan of the source material, I can say with certainly that this television looks like it’s going to be amazing.

American Gods comes to Starz in 2017.

If you’ll be at SDCC this weekend, visit the show’s spot at Booth 4029 on the convention floor to see “The Bone Orchard.” And be sure to check out all of our coverage of this year’s SDCC.

Before their big panel, the cast and crew stopped by the Nerdist “Conival” stage, where Gaiman reportedly said “You haven’t lived ’til you see Gillian Anderson as I Love Lucy saying ‘You want to see Lucy’s tits?'”

So far, several “First Looks” have been revealed, which you can see in the gallery here below.
