American Gods Actor Pablo Schreiber Lobbies To Play Wolverine; Starz’s Second Season To Be “More Exciting”

23 June 2017 7:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even before Hugh Jackman hung up the adamantium claws for the final time thanks to the release of James Mangold’s Logan, many considered his version of Wolverine to be irreplaceable, and any attempt to do so would only tarnish a 17-year legacy.

But in a time when moviegoers are bracing for the sixth Spider-Man movie in almost 15 years (Spider-Man: Homecoming), recasting Hugh Jackman seems inevitable. Heck, even the actor himself has been fairly candid about the possibility of another actor playing the iconic hero, and if Pablo Schreiber has his way, the American Gods star could become Jackman’s successor somewhere down the line – either that, or Schreiber could play the part of Sabretooth.

Chatting to ComicBook.com, the actor, who plays Mad Sweeney on Starz’s acclaimed series and is actually the younger brother to Liev Schreiber (Sabretooth), revealed his desire to don the adamantium claws.

I was a huge fan growing up of Wolverine and of Daredevil. Those are my two favorite guys and I would jump at the chance to play either one of them in a second. And you know I think Hugh is done now with Wolverine, so maybe it’s time for a reboot Maybe it’s time for a new Wolverine. Maybe we can reboot Sabretooth. I don’t think he would agree to play Sabretooth to my Wolverine.

Whether Fox takes heed of Pablo Schreiber’s lobbying is another question entirely, but we can at least look forward to his return in the second season of American Gods – a second season that will seemingly be much more exciting than the first. That’s according to showrunner Bryan Fuller, who told The Wrap that the extended season 2 will run for ten episodes in total.

Much of the pacing and dreamlike quality of Season 1 was about Shadow Moon’s mental state, and now that he’s been activated [as a believer], we can expect something a little different from how we’re going to tell the stories. Whenever anyone engages in a faith bargain and they commit to it, they change their perspective in a massive way.

So the story we get to tell with Shadow in the future is one of a character who’s crossed that first benchmark, which was non-believer to believer. Now that he believes, how does he believe? And how will what’s happened with his wife and Mr. Wednesday shift those beliefs? Suffice to say, Shadow will have a much more exciting arc in Season 2 than he did in Season 1.

Starz’s roster of deities will return for a ten-episode second season of American Gods sometime in 2018. »

We Need to Acknowledge Pablo Schreiber's Smoldering New Look in Real Life

21 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Warning: this post contains spoilers for Orange Is the New Black. On Orange Is the New Black, Pablo Schreiber is a horrible person. His character, George "Pornstache" Mendez, is a careless and corrupt corrections officer who becomes increasingly more maniacal while under the assumption that he's the biological father to Dayanara Diaz's daughter. In real life, however, the guy's pretty damn handsome. If you watched the fifth season of the Netflix original series, you may have noticed that Pornstache's signature, well, pornstache was gone and replaced by a thick beard. The last time viewers saw the character in the third season, he was bare-faced and had quite the questionable mullet. This season, Pornstache's hair appears much shorter and more clean cut. So, why the drastic change? Though little is revealed about his character's current state, we've since realized that his new look is likely due to Schreiber's role in American Gods. In the surreal series based on a novel of the same name, Schreiber plays a tough leprechaun - yes, really - hence the beard. American Gods may have already wrapped production of its first season, but Schreiber has stuck with his more rugged look, and we fully support the decision. These days, the actor seems to be enjoying the great outdoors, taking it easy at the beach, and surfing, like, a lot. We may still hate Pornstache - honestly, fair - but we're definitely warming up to the man behind the 'stache.

While there may be a lot of focus on Twin Peaks, there is of course one more show that refuses to be ignored. The American Gods finale is here, and we finally get to meet Easter (Kristin Chenoweth). More importantly the Gods have a face-off that may set the scene for a war in Season two.

Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) and Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) arrive at a party to try to recruit Ostara, also known as Easter. With Laura (Emily Browning) and Mad Sweeney (Pablo Shreiber) also arriving looking for help with resurrection, it doesn’t take long for a few newer Gods to join the party.

American Gods "Come To Jesus" Recap

19 June 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Courtesy of Starz

Well, here it is: the eighth episode. The season finale of Neil Gaiman’s novel turned television series. So, without further ado, here’s what happened on the American Gods season finale.

As Shadow and Wednesday sit back in silk robes, waiting for the completion of Mr. Nancy’s specially tailored suits, he tells them the story of a specific queen: Bilquis. He tells them of her reign in her land, how she moved throughout the ages, adapting to the changing eras and taking her followers through her sexual exploits. His story culminates on how weakened she is after Isis destroys her altar and is given her power back due to an arrangement with Technical Boy.

Upon completion of their suits, Shadow and Wednesday arrive in Kentucky at their next stop; the next God who’s allegiance they need. Walking into a colorful and vibrant party, the two of them meet Ostara, »

Newswire: American Gods’ Pablo Schreiber wants to reboot Wolverine

19 June 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The development history of the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods was almost as mythic as the story within; HBO took first crack at a proper homage about 10 years before Starz brought it back from the dead. Despite the long wait, the results have been overwhelmingly positive, and a second season is already in the works. And so, following the Jesus-packed conclusion to the first season, one cast member is looking to tackle a similarly impossible-sounding project.

In a recent chat with ComicBook.com, Pablo Schreiber, who plays Mad Sweeney on Bryan Fuller’s series, says he’d be up for a Wolverine reboot. Turns out, the Wire alum was drawn to character back in the ’80s, and has been a big fan of the rage-filled, fast-healing mutant ever since. So, sure, if “Hugh [Jackman] is done now with Wolverine,” Schreiber says, “maybe it’s time for ...

American Gods actor Pablo Schreiber wants to play Wolverine

19 June 2017 5:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Hugh Jackman hanging up the claws for good after his excellent swan-song in this year’s Logan, there has been steady speculation regarding who his replacement will be. Honestly, who could replace an actor who has made a part his own for 17 years? Even X-Men producer Hutch Parker can’t comprehend the post-Hugh future right now.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans casting actors, Hugh Jackman has his pick for a successor, and of course actors will now start to cast themselves in the coveted role as well. American GodsPablo Schreiber (Mad Sweeney) recently told ComicBook.com that he would love to play Wolverine in an upcoming X-Men film, and whether his brother Liev Schreiber would join him:

“I was a huge fan growing up of Wolverine and of Daredevil. Those are my two favorite guys and I would jump at the chance to play either one of them in a second. »

The 5 New TV Dramas That Deserve Emmy Attention

16 June 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

American Gods” (Starz)“You can’t weave the stories that are necessary for belief unless you have a personality,” Mr. Wednesday tells Shadow Moon. And personality is definitely not lacking on “American Gods.” After building a devoted fan base with Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel, this gritty story of war between the old gods and the new had big shoes to fill. Starz has succeeded with its impressive new series starring Ricky Whittle, Gillian Anderson, Pablo Schreiber, Emily Browning, and a superb Ian McShane. Set in modern times, the series follows Shadow Moon (Whittle) and Mr. Wednesday (McShane) as they reluctantly team up to wrestle power back from the gods that are worshipped today: technology, media, money, and war. Dreamlike visuals combined with some perfectly camp performances make for a surrealist fantasy reminiscent of a crossover between “Game of Thrones” and co-creator Bryan Fuller’s gone-too-soon “Hannibal.” —Briana Rodriguez “The Crown »

American Gods Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘A Prayer for Mad Sweeney’

13 June 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the seventh episode of American Gods

Narrated by an erudite mortician with a talent for finely tailored calligraphy, American Gods unfurls like a genteel acid trip without the paranoia and better dialogue. Naturally nuanced and inventively old-fashioned, ‘A Prayer for Mad Sweeney’ does away with tricks in favour of solid storylines built around fantastical characters. Featuring faery tale visuals combined with Pilgrim father prison ship overtones, Gods throws its audience by cross cutting between time and place. Seguing seamlessly between modern-day road trip compatriots Sweeney and Laura Moon, before jumping back to pick up with their latter-day doppelgängers.

By mixing soundtracks and incidental musical influences between Fifties rockabilly and saxophone swing jazz, Gods continues to challenge whilst delivering a story of breadth. Browning in dual roles plays the middle incarnation of our ‘Made In America’ protagonist raised to believe in leprechauns, magic and mystery. From youth through »

Exclusive: Dascha Polanco Is 'Proud' of Her Character for 'Having a Moment' on 'Oitnb': 'It's About Time'

12 June 2017 10:20 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning! This article contains spoilers from season five of Oitnb. Do not proceed if you haven't watched the first episode of the new season.

Dascha Polanco can sum up season five of Orange Is the New Black in one word: revolutionary. 

The all-new season, which is now streaming on Netflix, picks up exactly where season four left off, with Polanco's character, Dayanara "Daya" Diaz, pointing a gun at correctional officer Thomas Humphrey (Michael Torpey). It's all a result of the riot that broke out in the cafeteria after inmate Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley) was accidentally murdered by prison guard Baxter Bailey (Alan Aisenberg).

"Right now, everyone collectively has unified to take things and to just not take it anymore. To say, 'We won't tolerate it,'" she told Et of the inmates' reactions to the injustices happening inside Litchfield Penitentiary. "And I think as women, politically now we're going through the same thing, where we're unifying »

'American Gods' Recap: Who Really Killed Laura Moon?

11 June 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

If any character in season 1 of American Gods has been the breakout star of the series, it is Pablo Schreiber's Mad Sweeney. Schreiber has been excellent as the gruff and incredibly tall leprechaun of American Gods. It is not much of a surprise then that this episode, titled a "Prayer for Mad Sweeney," devotes almost all of its runtime to the foul-mouthed creature of legend. It's equally unsurprising that it might just be the best episode of the series thus far.

Emily Browning continues to impress in American Gods. Here's our review of the latest episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.7 A Prayer For Mad Sweeney

It’s strange to think that Emily Browning might just become the breakout star of American Gods, but here we are. You’d expect someone like Ricky Whittle to blow up, or perhaps Corbin Bernsen will get that career renaissance I spoke about last week. Maybe Omid Abtahi will translate the beatific charm of Salim into a big career, or Chris Obi will become a household name after displaying both calculated menace, kindness, and comic timing, usually in the same scene. And yet, Emily Browning, who played the lead in several huge-budget movies, is poised to make a career leap with performances like her most recent in A Prayer For Mad Sweeney.
