‘American Gods’: Neil Gaiman’s Guide to The Show’s Incredible Cast

28 April 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

American Gods” might be one of the most exciting series launching this spring. Adapted by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green from Neil Gaiman’s novel, the supernatural drama leans way into the weird for a highly imaginative tale about Shadow (Ricky Whittle), a former convict who finds himself drawn into a strange world of old gods and new by Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane).

Whittle and McShane are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the cast accumulated for this show, representing some of today’s greatest talents — and Gaiman himself will not hesitate to sing their praises. In fact, when IndieWire got the chance to speak to the lauded author via phone, we took the opportunity to find out exactly what he thinks of his equally lauded cast.

For the record, »

American Gods: Bryan Fuller interview

As the terrific American Gods TV series finally arrives on screens, here’s our chat with showrunner Bryan Fuller

I met Bryan Fuller to talk American Gods in early December 2016 when he and the rest of the world were reeling from the fallout of the Us election. It was an uncanny experience, Fuller said, being in post-production on a show about immigration, religious belief and opportunistic power grabs while the Clinton V Trump circus played out. Inadvertently, his and Michael Green’s fantasy drama adapted from Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel had taken on real-world significance that none of them had seen coming.

Knowing this interview would be embargoed until the series launch in five months’ time, I joked that we had no clue what kind of world we’d be facing then. »

Ian McShane on reviving Lovejoy and becoming the saviour of America

10 April 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As the king of the mullet returns as one of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, he shares his idea for a Lovejoy comeback, forgets the names of his own films – and reveals all about his bizarre new portrayal of Dr Dre

Ian McShane went under the knife recently but the operation and its aftermath have done little to curb his foul-mouthed joie de vivre. “I had surgery in the shoulder over Christmas,” says the 74-year-old Mancunian, fixing me with eyes full of mock sorrow, before dropping his voice a comedy octave. “I’ll never bowl googlies again, never deliver a chinaman to a left-hander.” He cackles as he explains the cause: “Too many action films and too much sport. Takes about four months to get over it, but I’m not down.”

We have met to talk about his latest role, in the unexpectedly pertinent TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel American Gods. »

In preparation for ‘Chapter Two’ here’s our A-z of ‘John Wick’

9 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of Chapter Two, here’s our A-z of the world of John Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017. The film is a sequel to 2014’s John Wick, the film that re-established Keanu Reeves as an A-List action star. The story told of a retired hit-man who found himself back in the seedy criminal world after his beloved dog, a gift from his deceased wife, was murdered. The film is all kinds of brilliant, perfectly blending various elements to create a real-life graphic novel.

But in case you’re a little rusty on the world of Wick we’ve compiled this handy A – Z guide.

A is for Assassins

For those not acquainted with the world of John Wick, it’s all about the underworld of hit-men and hit-women. The most decorated of these is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hit-man who managed to »
