Before Starz hits us all with the awesome might of American Gods in 2017, you may be wondering why everyone's going nuts about the casting.
Neil Gaiman wrote the fantastic book that's being adapted into this show. If you're a fan of his (or of Bryan Fuller, the AG showrunner/helmsman), you can already appreciate why the casting is so brilliant.
However, if you're just intrigued and want to know more (and don't care about possible spoilers), Comic Book Resources is here to introduce you to the key players.
Now, to be clear, we don't know how exactly the TV series will follow the book just yet. We suspect the answer is 'very,' because that's how Fuller tends to roll, and also because Gaiman himself is deeply involved (he even approved each and every casting choice).
CBR's speculations are all based on the book version of events, but they're solid. We'll drink to that.
