American Gods Cast, EPs Talk Coin Tricks, Road Trips, Kardashians and the Dangers of Loving a Goddess

26 July 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Much like Michelle Obama in her DNC speech Monday, American Gods executive producer Bryan Fuller is skilled at throwing shade without mentioning his target(s) by name.

The object of the Ep’s ire? The Kardashian family, though you won’t hear him speak the ubiquitous surname even once in this interview from TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by Zte.

A tiny bit of backstory: Fuller’s upcoming series, produced with Michael Green (Heroes), follows Neil Gaiman’s novel about a recently released convict’s run-in with gods both ancient and modern. »

First Look @ "American Gods"

26 July 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Thanks to TorontoFilm.Net, Sneak Peek the first Comic-Con trailer footage from the new Starz mini-series "American Gods", featuring 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:

"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."

Will we have the patience for American Gods?

26 July 2016 10:27 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes and clips and puts it all in perspective. I tried to read the book American Gods two times. So much time elapsed between attempts that I had to start over from the beginning. The first time I got to page 80, the second time I made it to about page 180. It obviously didn't hold my interest. Which is odd because I'm a huge fan of writer Neil Gaiman, having read every comic he's ever written, the entire run of Sandman multiple times, etc. But I still couldn't make it through his novel. American Gods is known for picking up steam after a slow start, but I still couldn't muster the patience for it even though it was written by one of my favorite authors. Being semi-familiar with the material, I recognized many aspects of the book in the trailer: the coin tricks, »

Gillian Anderson channels Marilyn Monroe in new image from American Gods

24 July 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month Gillian Anderson shared an image from American Gods teasing her character Media, which suggested that the New God would assume the identity of the iconic Marilyn Monroe in Starz’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed novel. Now, following the release of the first trailer over the weekend, Anderson has posted another image, this time showing her in full Marilyn getup…

American Gods posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.

‘Game of Thrones’ Blooper Reel Shows Peter Dinklage Trying to Say ‘Benevolent’ (Video)

22 July 2016 6:16 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Maybe Peter Dinklage was drinking real wine while playing Tyrion, because it seems he has trouble saying the word “benevolent.” During their panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the team behind “Game of Thrones” revealed a special blooper reel from this past season. Highlights from the take outs include Emilia Clarke mangling the Dothraki language while trying to deliver Daenerys’ rallying speech from Drogon’s back. The Hound actor Rory McCann‘s return to the series was also a little rough, as he struggled to chop wood while filming his return episode with Ian McShane.

American Gods: Kristen Chenoweth Joins, First Trailer Revealed!

22 July 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

American Gods is coming to Starz, and it looks fantastic. 

The show's cast and crew took to the stage at San Diego Comic Con and brought the first trailer with them. 

Rickey Whittle is one of the leads, and boy, it looks like he's had a pretty great rebound from The 100. 

He plays Shadow, who is totally not loving life. Getting out of jail after a three-year stint, he returns home for the funeral of his beloved wife, Laura.

He is seated next to a man named Mr. Wednesday who knows a little too much about Shadow. Things take off in a crazy direction from there. 

With Bryan Fuller behind the show, you can bet your bottom dollar that this is going to be a good one. 

Fuller has a great track record, so he wants people who have and haven't read the books to know that "you’re in good hands. »

‘Game of Thrones’ Cast Reveals Lighter Side in Blooper Reel (Watch)

22 July 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On “Game of Thrones,” it’s a fierce battle for the Iron Throne, but during the “Games of Thrones” panel at Comic-Con, fans got treated to a Season 6 blooper reel that proved that not everything is so serious on the HBO drama.

Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion Lannister opens the blooper reel with some major struggles, chewing up the word benevolent — much to the amusement of the usually somber Grey Worm.

Although “Game of Thrones” is known for its exemplary final product, not everything is a “one-take” wonder. Take for instance The Hound, played by Rory McCann, struggling to chop a measly chunk of wood during a scene with special guest star Ian McShane. Surely Sandor Clegane is much more impressive than this!

Emilia Clarke was unfortunately also a victim. Daenerys’ guttural Dothraki proved to be a harder task than working with a fake dragon and a green screen.

And last but not least, there »
