Starz has just revealed that Mr. Wednesday will be played by Ian McShane in Bryan Fuller and Michael Green‘s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel "American Gods".
Neil Gaiman said about the casting: “When you write a beloved character like Mr. Wednesday, you get to watch the Internet trying to cast the role. I’ve seen a hundred names suggested, but few make me grin like Ian McShane does… Yesterday was Super Tuesday. Today is Wonderful Wednesday.”
Ian McShane recently appeared in "Ray Donovan" and will soon appear in "The Game of Thrones" in unknown role. He is also set to return to "John Wick: Chapter Two" as Winston, the owner of The Continental, hotel for assassins.
