Starz’s American Gods Casts 3 Series Regulars!


The casting for Starz’s American Gods TV series continues to thrill fans to the point of wanting to explode from excitement. (Or is that just me?) Starz previously announced the casting of Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Laura Moon (Emily Browning). According to their press release from today, they’ve now cast Mad Sweeney, Bilquis, and Technical Boy.

Sean Harris will play the scrappy, down-on-his-luck leprechaun, Mad Sweeney. Yetide Badaki will play Bilquis, ancient goddess of love longing to be worshiped once again. And Bruce Langley will play Technical Boy, a new god who seeks to establish himself among the gods of old.

Harris, Badaki, and Langley join the previously announced Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane and Emily Browning. Seriously, let’s all give a standing ovation to anyone involved in casting American Gods. Bravo, good men and women. Bravo!
