Casting

I just wanted to check what's your take on the cast, how did you imagine the characters prior to the announcement(s)? Did you picture someone else or are you excited about the hired actors?

Initially I wanted to use "ginger" in my description, but I quickly googled it and according to this , turns out that's considered to be an offensive term in the UK, therefore just to stay in the clear I used a synonym. At the same time the US commenters said that they've been introduced to the word by the Simpsons in 2005... :D 

I think it was actually South Park, not Simpsons, and I never knew it was derogatory in the UK.

I stand corrected, though that might've been due that when I googled "typical /stereotypical leprechaun" one of the pics were from Simpsons, and there were no pics from South Park, but you are right.

Three new cast members have been announced! Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy? STFU! This show is making me cry so happily and they haven't even released a trailer yet.

So, Ricky just let slip in his latest periscope that Tracie Thoms was in his favorite scene to film so far, a scene with him, Media, Technical Boy, etc.... I saw someone mention back when she was first tagged on set a month ago that they wondered if she might be a genderbent Mr. Town and I am really sold on this idea now.

Hold your horses! Even though I like the idea, this qualifies as a spoiler imo. So pls next time write "spoiler alert" so ppl who want to be genuinely amazed, can avoid reading any extra bit of info regarding the TV version of the story.

I think that's just speculation? But I'll add the spoilers tag to this and move in into the spoiler forum just in case. ;)

With Sleepy Hollow finally being canceled (I stopped watching when they introduced that annoying Betsy Ross character), it reminds me how much I love Nicole Beharie. I want her on American Gods, too! Maybe as Bast?
