‘American Gods’ Clip: Meet Mr. Mr. Nancy

Mr. Nancy American Gods

It seems like most of us who watched American Gods this past Sunday are already finding ourselves engrossed in the ambitious Starz series. With the Neil Gaiman adaptation, co-creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green took their time introducing Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Bilquis (Yetide Badaki) in a character-driven and atmospheric pilot. They got fantastic introductions – giving us a clear sense of who they are, not so much what they want.

On the next episode of American Gods, the brewing war between the old gods and the new may get more attention, but there’s still a few key new players to introduce, such as Mr. Nancy/Anansi, played by Orlando Jones. Below, you can watch his introduction in a new American Gods clip.

deadwood movie

When Deadwood, one of the greatest television shows of all time, was cut down in its prime following a spectacular third season and a melancholy finale, fans took comfort in the knowledge that a series of TV movies were apparently on the way to tie up loose ends and give the series a proper send-off. Thanks to regime change at HBO, those sequel movies never happened. However, those who were enthralled by David Milch‘s dusty, profane, and poetic western series have kept hope alive – maybe it will come back. Someday.

Now, according to series star Ian McShane, the blueprint for TV movie follow-up has been finished. It’s all in the hands of HBO.

John Wick 2 Shoot Date

Like many of you, John Wick kicked my ass when it was released in 2014.

John Wick 3 is already in development, and I’m very excited to see more chapters in this world.

Lets take a look at what may await us in John Wick: Chapter 3, pieced together from interview comments from director Chad Stahelski, screenwriter Derek Kolstad, actor Keanu Reeves, and more.

American Gods director

This year, something doesn’t feel quite right with Comic-Con. That’s true for a variety of reasons, but it’s mainly because Hannibal is no longer making appearances. A room packed with the enthusiasm of a large pack of Fannibals was always a treat. Hannibal may be off the air and out of Comic-Con, but that’s not stopping Bryan Fuller from attending. Yesterday, he brought with him his new show, American Gods (co-created by Michael Green).

Below, watch the American Gods trailer.
