Five Things You Didn’t Know About Demore Barnes

Actors are often assumed to be the most outgoing, confident people possible. This is a fair assumption, given that their profession demands they perform in front of millions of people if they land large enough parts. However, many actors do not have such confidence.

American Gods Renewed For Second Season

For those who aren’t completely familiar with the television calendar, we are now entering the culling. As the networks get ready for their Upfronts, it becomes time to bring the hammer down on the shows that won’t be returning, which means it is obviously also time to announce renewals.

In the midst of a ton of shows getting killed off over the last few days, Starz has renewed American Gods after the show has barely begun airing, which isn’t that unusual these days, but is surely a great relief to a lot of fans. In the release, Starz announced that the show has managed more than 5 million multiplatform viewers, and that number is growing. That’s an impressive number for a truly bonkers show on a cable network.

Watch the Newest ‘American Gods’ Trailer, Featuring Ominous Ian McShane

Watch the Newest ‘American Gods’ Trailer, Featuring Ominous Ian McShane
By now, you’ve probably seen some sort of promotion for Bryan Fuller’s upcoming series “American Gods.” But the latest trailer for Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel lays out the conflict a little more clearly than the previous, more oblique promos: The old gods brought to America by various groups of immigrants are fading, supplanted in the public consciousness by the new gods of tech and media and conspiracy theories. There’s not enough belief to go around — but the old gods, led by Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) aren’t going to go quietly.

In the middle of all this is Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), an ex-con widower. He tags along as Wednesday’s muscle, encountering other gods in dire straits like Anansi (Orlando Jones), Czernobog (Peter Stormare), and Easter (Kristin Chenoweth) during Wednesday’s attempt to drum up an army. “We’re at war already,” Wednesday
