‘Battlestar Galactica’ alum Tricia Helfer’s next role: the mother from Hell, literally

21 June 2016 12:47 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tricia Helfer is set to play the mother from Hell. No, really, actually from Hell — the Battlestar Galactica alum has been cast as the Devil’s mom in Lucifer, Fox’s show loosely (very loosely) based on the Lucifer DC Comics series that is itself a spin-off of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman. The model-turned-actress has got alluringly devious down, so this seems like an excellent fit. Season 1 of Lucifer ended with the Prince of Darkness being tasked by God with capturing a soul that’s escaped from Hell. That soul is none other than Lucifer’s mum. Here is the official character description for Helfer’s character, named Charlotte: “Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Once reunited with Lucifer, it will become clear that she’s the one he takes after. Mom is fearless and »

First look images from American Gods featuring Shadow Moon, Mad Sweeney and Mr. Wednesday

18 June 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got some first look images from American Gods, Starz’s upcoming TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed 2001 fantasy novel, which feature Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) and Mr. Wedensday (Ian McShane) in Jack’s Crocodile Bar; check them out here…

“It was one of the sets that we were the most excited about and an opportunity to do a tonal landgrab for what we are and what the style of the show will be,” states executive producer Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies). “[Jack’s] is a kind of hillbilly chic aesthetic for Shadow’s entrée into the world of the gods.”

“Neil created this wonderfully stuffed toy box filled with all sorts of cultural points of view on how American operates as a system, and that was so fascinating and mythological in and of itself,” Fuller continues. “It’s really much more »

"American Gods" - Set Images

17 June 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From TorontoFilm.Net, Sneak Peek newly released set images from the currently shooting Starz mini-series "American Gods", featuring the characters 'Shadow Moon' (Ricky Whittle), 'Mr. Wednesday' (Ian McShane), and 'Mad Sweeney' (Pablo Schreiber), in an adaptation of author Neil Gaiman's 2011 supernatural fantasy novel, "American Gods":

"It was one of the sets that we were the most excited about," said executive producer Bryan Fuller. "An opportunity to do a tonal landgrab for what we are and what the style of the show will be..."

"I think the comedy and charm and ease of Wednesday’s appeal is very well-suited for Ian McShane.

"He has a vibrancy as 'Wednesday' that could have gone so many different ways in other actors’ hands, but has such a specificity and reality, despite the situation at hand."

"...in 'American Gods', a war is brewing between old and new gods: the »

First American Gods Images Feature Shadow, Mr. Wednesday And Mad Sweeney

16 June 2016 8:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

The first couple of official images from Starz’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s mega-popular fantasy novel, American Gods, have been released by EW. They provide glimpses of the three of the story’s weird and wonderful characters in action while enjoying an evening at Jack’s Crocodile Bar: Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber).

McShane’s Wednesday will become a mentor of sorts to Shadow (we won’t reveal their real identities/relationship just in case you haven’t read the book and would rather be surprised), and in these photos he seems impressed that the youngster is able to hold his own against Mad Sweeney, who is actually a rowdy, drunken leprechaun.

Yeah… things get even weirder, trust me.

In a recent interview, co-showrunner Michael Green provided an idea of what to expect from the story, »

Entertainment Weekly reported Sleepy Hollow star Orlando Jones and 12 Monkeys' Demore Barnes have joined Bryan Fuller's Starz series starring Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon. "Jones will play Mr. Nancy on the show, one of the gods Shadow meets – and, arguably, befriends – during his visit to the House on the Rock, a.k.a. the American landmark where the gods assemble," they write. "Nancy is the human form of the West African trickster god Anansi, who is classically depicted as a spider and has a penchant for telling stories." Gaiman fans also know Mr. Nancy is also the lead of his other novel, Anansi Boys.
