Having only recently table read, it could be some time before Starz’s American Gods delivers any real first look, but Bryan Fuller’s cast continually proves itself worthy of Olympus. Latest to join the series in God-ly roles are none other than Jonathan Tucker and Back to the Future icon Crispin Glover, but as whom?

Among the many questions raised by CBS’ announcement of a new All-Access streaming Star Trek for 2017 under Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller, fans had to wonder if a TV return would follow the J.J. Abrams reboot films, return to the original timeline, or perhaps exist independent of both. Now, reports suggest that not only is the original continuity back in play, we know which Star Trek properties the new CBS iteration will fall between.
Starz and Bryan Fuller’s American Gods has been rather meticulous with the casting to date, and now the floodgates may have opened. Not only has Sean Harris joined in the favorite role of Mad Sweeney, but so too has American Gods found its Bilquis and Technical Boy.
The casting of Starz’s Bryan Fuller-adapted American Gods has been slow going, but grows more divine with every addition. After the casting of our Shadow Moon and Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednedsay, Emily Browning has joined American Gods in the role of Laura Moon, a “tricky character” from Neil Gaiman’s original novel.
Star Trek fans have likely heard of some disparity between the movie and TV branches that kept the franchise off regular TV in recent years, seemingly broken by CBS All-Access’ 2017 launch of a new Bryan Fuller series. That said, the two were apparently required to keep six months’ distance, which could spell a questionable future for the film franchise.
Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access revival of Star Trek has upped its fan cred twice over with the additions of Nicholas Meyer and Rod Roddenberry, though many also point to Fuller’s diversity pledge with past suggestions of Angela Bassett and Rosario Dawson. Sadly, Bassett doesn’t believe herself available, and we have American Horror Story to blame.
Early buzz around Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller’s 2017 return to Star Trek for CBS All-Access has seen Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer joining the project’s old-school appeal, and the legacy of Gene Roddenberry will be kept intact as well. The legendary Star Trek creator’s son Rod Roddenberry has now joined the project as producer.
Bryan Fuller may be busy putting mortals in space, but that hasn’t stopped him from appointing American Gods at home. Following the initial announcement of Shadow Moon, Fuller reveals that Deadwood’s foul-mouthed Ian McShane will take the coveted regular role of Mr. Wednesday, himself among the famed American Gods.
We still don’t have the clearest picture of what Bryan Fuller’s CBS All-Access Star Trek could look like in 2017, but out of the Mutara Nebula comes a familiar face. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan writer/director Nicholas Meyer will return to the franchise for its newest TV iteration, both as writer and producer.
CBS has kept mum on details of a new Star Trek TV series since the announcement that it would debut on CBS All-Access in 2017, and its first announcement brings mostly good news. First off, Hannibal and American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller will return to his Star Trek past to topline the new series!
