But yes, American Gods I have read and so I have images of the GODS in my mind that now have to be recast in front of me. Who will play my Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday. I know already, of course and for the most part I am very happy with the choice of actors. Ian McShane is a gift with that sickly sweet delivery, who is better to play a trickster on a battle to get back what has been lost?
Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident. Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, he is greeted by a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.
