AMERICAN GODS has cast LOST soul Jeremy Davies as the Son of God!
Jeremy Davies has been cast as Jesus in the Starz 2017 series American Gods.
wille character Jesus will be closely connected with Easter aka Ostara played by Kristin Chenoweth. The official character description for Jesus explains:
Resurrected on Ostara’s feast day, Jesus has always been generous in sharing the Easter holiday with the ancient goddess. But the overly empathetic Son of God would be crushed to know that Ostara harbors some deeply buried resentment over the issue.
Davies is an Emmy award-winning actor known for his role as Dickie Bennett in FX’s Justified and as Daniel Faraday in Lost. He will not only appear in American Gods but he will also appear in the next season of Fox’s Sleepy Hollow and Showtime’s Twin Peaks.
The series follows a thief named Shadow (Ricky Whittle) who finds himself at the center of a conflict brewing throughout America, unbeknownst to the country’s regular humans: A war of worship is being waged between the old gods — those who arrived in America from the world’s immigrant cultures — and the new gods of media and technology. Both are desperate for mankind’s attention.
American Gods is coming to Starz in 2017.
