American Gods season two adds three key cast members
While the sophomore season of the Starz adaptation of American Gods might have lost two stars and original showrunners, it has just added three new cast members for key guest and recurring roles!
Dean Winters (John Wick), Devery Jacobs (Mohawk Girls) and Kahyun Kim (Shameless) have been cast as Mr. Town, Sam Black Crow and New Media, with Kim taking on the role following Gillian Anderson’s departure from the series last year.
The second season of the acclaimed Neil Gaiman adaptation will see Mr. World (Crispin Glover, Back to the Future) task Mr. Town with tracking down Shadow (Ricky Whittle, The 100) and finding out what he knows about Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane, Deadwood)’s plan. Town’s methods are brutally efficient and may help him get to the root of his and World’s curious questions.
First Nations actress Jacobs will portray Sam Black Crow, a college student that is spiritually cynical for someone, despite claiming to believe in so much. She lives life with fierce confidence and openness, selling the chainsaw art she carves by the roadside for extra money.
Kim will take on the recurring role of New Media, the goddess of global content — and in this age, a cyberspace chameleon, who is also a master of manipulation. She will be a new, younger version of the character following Anderson’s portrayal of Media in season one.
The second season of American Gods is set to debut on Starz sometime in 2019.
