Pablo Schreiber Drops Major Clue About Mad Sweeney’s Real Identity (Video)

Fans of the Starz hit drama “American Gods,” have come to know the character of Mad Sweeney as an abnormally tall, out-on-his-luck leprechaun with a mean right hook.

Throughout the show’s two seasons, Sweeney, played by Pablo Schreiber, has dropped hints that his past may stretch further than a rainbow to a pot of gold. On Sunday, viewers will finally find out who Sweeney really is.

“He’s never been a leprechaun,” Schreiber told TheWrap. “We meet the character of Mad Sweeney in Season 1, episode 1, when he describes himself as a leprechaun. By the last time we see him in Season 2… we sort of finally realize what that meant, and that there was a certain irony to him calling himself a leprechaun.”

‘Halo’ enlists its Master Chief: Pablo Schreiber goes from Pornstache to Leprechaun to Showtime’s Xbox hero

Fans of the Xbox video game series “Halo” have waited a long time for an adaptation. Showtime announced a series version almost a year ago, but the show has finally found its Master Chief. Pablo Schreiber will don the Spartan uniform as the heroic lead in the sci-fi saga. He’s currently known for playing prison guard Pornstache in “Orange is the New Black” and the leprechaun Mad Sweeney in “American Gods,” among other roles in TV and film.

The “Halo” games are first-person shooters set in the 26th century, when the human race battles an alien species known as the Covenant for control of a mysterious super-weapon, the artificial ring-shaped worlds that give the series its title. The TV version will “weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future,” according to Showtime’s press release.
