‘American Gods’ First Clip Offers Low-Key Rules for Flying
We may not have met the American Gods, but we sure know some of their rules. Specifically, don’t upset any airport employees, and other such helpful tips revealed by Low Key Lyesmith in our first official clip from Starz’s Bryan Fuller-adapted series.
American Gods released its first official clip from the April 30 premiere, as Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) takes advice from fellow inmate Low Key (Jonathan Tucker) on flying home after his release. In addition to the clip below, Starz also released a two-minute featurette with new looks at the characters and story:
For those unfamiliar with Sandman creator Neil Gaiman’s novel, so reads the Starz American Gods synopsis:
“American Gods” posits a different kind of war brewing—one between Old Gods and New. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the New Gods. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
In addition to Corbin Bernsen as Vulcan, Kristin Chenoweth as Easter, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, Gillian Anderson as Media, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy, Dane Cook as Robbie, Jonathan Tucker as Low-Key Lyesmith, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis and Bruce Langley as “Technical Boy,” Gods features The 100 star Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednedsay and Emily Browning as Shadow’s wife Laura Moon.
We’ll likely see more soon, but watch the first American Gods trailers below, and stay tuned for the April 30 premiere.
