Gillian Anderson joins American Gods

Gillian Anderson has joined Starz’s TV adaption of Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods.

The story follows a war between the old and new gods. The old being traditional ones formed by spiritual understandings and mythologies around the world and the new being reflections of America’s obsession with money, technology and celebrities.

Casting so far has Ricky Whittle playing Shadow Moon an ex- con and travelling buddy / bodyguard to Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). Anderson on the other hand is playing Media, the sassy agent of influence for the new gods. Should be a blast!

If you want to see more Anderson in action she returns later this year in the third and final season of The Fall.
