28 January 2016 10:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The series will begin shooting in April. Here's what author Neil Gaiman had to say about the casting in a statement.

"I'm thrilled that Ricky has been cast as Shadow. His auditions were remarkable. The process of taking a world out of the pages of a book, and putting it onto the screen has begun. American Gods is, at its heart, a book about immigrants, and it seems perfectly appropriate that Shadow will, like so much else, be Coming to America. I'm delighted Ricky will get to embody Shadow. Now the fun starts."

‘American Gods’ Casts Its Shadow: ‘The 100’ Actor to Play Lead Role in Starz TV Adaptation

28 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

American Gods,” Starz’s TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved fantasy novel, has cast Ricky Whittle in the lead role of Shadow Moon, the premium cabler announced Thursday.

The series 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. The plot centers around Shadow Moon, 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.

Gaiman said in a statement, “I’m thrilled that Ricky has been cast as Shadow. His auditions were remarkable. The process of taking a world out of the pages of a book, and putting it onto the screen has begun. »

Sharon D Clarke: from Holby City to siren songs

17 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Sharon D Clarke studied to be a social worker before becoming a doctor … on Holby City. Now she’s an Olivier award-winning stage star, singing the blues in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. She talks roles, racism - and the year her voice broke

In the late 1980s, a young audience member was indelibly impressed by London productions of two plays by American dramatists: a revival of James Baldwin’s 1954 classic The Amen Corner and the UK premiere of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom by August Wilson.

“That was the first experience I’d had of seeing strong roles for black women, where they weren’t just maids in the background,” says Sharon D Clarke who, almost three decades later, is speaking during rehearsals to complete a National Theatre double of her personal favourites.

I’ve never said the n-word, and anyone saying it to me, I will punch their lights out. »

Don Warrington: 'I can be angry. I can want to kill'

10 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

He’s done everything from Rising Damp to All My Sons and Holby. But now Don Warrington is facing the biggest challenge of his career: playing Lear. He talks about becoming a Geordie, wanting to be Brando – and why England has never felt like home

Don Warrington is remembering crying in London’s Old Vic when he was a drama student. “I hadn’t seen much Shakespeare. I didn’t know anything about anything really.” On stage was Eric Porter as King Lear. “I sat there and I thought, ‘That miserable old git,’ but he was breaking my heart.”

Nearly half a century later, Warrington is to play the heartbreaking old git in a production directed by Michael Buffong, artistic director of Talawa, Britain’s leading black theatre company. As we chat over samosas and deep-fried okra in an Indian restaurant, Warrington looks serene and sartorially elegant. But nearly everything »

Star Wars: Rogue One - what we know so far

We look at what we know so far about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - plus round up some of the juiciest rumours and bits of speculation...

Nb: The following contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and speculation about Rogue One.

Even the return of cinema's most charismatic fish can't quite match the anticipation surrounding this year's Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One. That's according to a much-shared survey which suggests that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the movie cinemagoers are most looking forward to in 2016 - beating Pixar sequel Finding Dory to second place and superhero face-off epic Batman V Superman into third.

That level of fervour isn't bad going, really, when you consider that: one, Rogue One isn't a full sequel to The Force Awakens, which is still cutting a swathe through multiplexes, and two, we don't really know a huge amount about it yet. »
