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.”

Fans of the Dceu have been wondering who will be chosen to become the new Green Lantern for a while, and one talented individual has now decided to continue the campaign to get Tom Cruise to wear the ring with some solid new fan art imagining the performer as one epic Hal Jordan.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Ricky Whittle

You know you’ve seen him at least once or twice but you might not have known his name. Ricky Whittle is hard to miss when he shows up since he’s just that intense in his look and his act and at the same time is pretty awesome to be honest. The shows that he’s been seen in throughout the years have been made just a little bit better for his presence since despite the fact that he’s kind of been downplayed in a couple of them it was still possible for his character to become someone pivotal after a while

American Gods star Ricky Whittle has “had conversations” about Green Lantern role

Green Lantern Corps is one of those DC projects like The Flash and Cyborg that were initially announced as part of the DC Extended Universe slate, but have since found themselves languishing in development hell in the years following.

Originally slated for release in July 2020 – a date which now looks impossible to meet – the last update came back in June when it was announced that former DC Cco Geoff Johns had boarded the project as screenwriter and producer.

And, while it’s current status is unknown, it seems that DC Films may have been putting the casting feelers out recently as American Gods star Ricky Whittle has revealed to Syfy Wire that he’s “had conversations” about the project.

‘American Gods’ Names Charles ‘Chic’ Eglee Showrunner, Gets Season 3 Renewal
American Gods” is returning with a new showrunner.

The Fremantle-produced Starz television series based on the Neil Gaiman novel has officially been picked up for a third season and has tapped Charles “Chic” Eglee to lead the season as showrunner and executive producer. The news comes less than a week after the show launched its second season.

He will now be the third showrunner at the helm of the series.

American Gods Season 2 Episode 1 Review – ‘House on the Rock’

Martin Carr reviews the first episode of American God season 2…

Gestation for this new season has been glacial with departing show runners and cast members plus months in stasis while obstacles were overcome. For those who missed American Gods first time round shame on you, as invention comes no thicker or faster, no fresher nor vibrant than in this visually arresting Neil Gaiman adaptation. There is a folkloric quality which pervades every frame and a dark edged humour which punctuates some of the more unsettling imagery on offer. Even for those familiar with the meandering structure, freewheeling characterisation and outlandishly saturated colour palette House on the Rock requires multiple viewings.

At the heart of this tale sits a literal and metaphorical deconstruction of American consumer society, which challenges existing belief systems and more conventional modes of worship. This world is changing and bending to the will of a new set
