My cast for the "American Gods" movie

Sort by: Showing 21 items
Rating: List Type:
As Shadow

This was the most difficult casting. It seems impossible to include a big tough guy without turning the whole movie into another blockbuster. So, The Rock goes to the list only for the appropriate look; I don't think that as an actor he's good enough to play Shadow.

Other suggestions:

Vin Diesel
Neil Gaiman himself said that:
"In my head at least heโ€™s one of those people whose race doesnโ€™t read easily โ€” in the celebrity world, Vin Deiselโ€™s an example of the same kind of look."

As Mr.Wednesday

Hopkins already has an experience portraying Odin, so why not?

Other suggestions:

Brian Cox
As Czernobog

Other suggestions:

Christopher Lee
As Zorya Utrennyaya or Zorya Vechernyaya

Other suggestions:
As Zorya Polunochnaya

Zorya Polunochnaya actually has dark eyes, but I thought blue eyes would also be OK.

As Mr.Nancy

If you can think of any other old black man, please tell me. I think he's perfect for this role.


Samuel L. Jackson
As Mad Sweeney

Well, doesn't he look like a leprechaun?

As Mr.Ibis

He doesn't look like a Egyptian at all, but he has this heron-like appearance. It'd be great having him in the movie.

As Bast

Because she has beautiful cat-like eyes.

As Easter

Because she's a beautiful, tasty, healthy-looking blonde.

As Sheba

Average listal rating (529 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
As the Fat Kid

As Mr.Town

Other suggestions:

Matt Dillon

Jason Isaacs
Average listal rating (381 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 0
As Laura

Average listal rating (424 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
As Audrey Burton

As Samantha Black Crow

As Marguerite Olson

As Alison McGovern

As Sophie

As Hinzelmann

Average listal rating (817 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0
As Chad Mulligan

This is an incomplete list.

I've just finished reading "American Gods", it's a masterpiece!
It was announced that the book will be adapted in a movie, so I keep thinking what the casting may be.

Please, share your thoughts and suggestions, and I will include all of them.
