Are you a God if no one believes in you?

That’s the question that the upcoming HBO series American Gods revolves around.

Based on the best selling novel, American Gods, by Neil Gaiman, the show has been green lit for a 6 series run by HBO.

Gaiman told MTV News: “I’m worrying about it one episode at a time [and] one season at a time. The overall plan right now is that the first season would essentially be… the first book, with a few interesting divergences. You don’t want the people who’ve read the book to be able to go, ‘I know everything that’s going to be happening.’ Well, no. You know a lot more than anybody who is starting from here, but we will do things that will surprise you, too.”
“There was always so much more plot for American Gods and… what happens in the fall-out, so we’re just going to follow it along.”

Set to be released sometime in 2013, there’s not much information on this right now. I’m curious to see who they are going to cast, especially as Shadow! Typically, when I read a book I try to cast it as a movie in my head, and after having read this book 4 times, I still have no idea who would fit the part best.


So, I would like to start a poll- Who would you cast as the following main characters in American Gods:


Mr. Wednesday:

Mr. Nancy:



Mad Sweeney:

Low-Key Lyesmith:


Mr. Ibis:

Mr. Jacquel:
