American Gods Has Found Jesus

Joining the near-perfect cast of the Starz show is Jeremy Davies (Lost and Justified) as Jesus. The son of god one.


Davies won an Emmy for the recurring role of Dickie Bennett on Jutisfied and also has a history with American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller. He played Peter Bernardone in two episodes of Hannibal. They were good. You should go watch them right now.

Anyway, Davies’ Jesus will probably share a bit of a plotline with Kristin Chenoweth’s Easter, whom Chenoweth described at San Diego Comic-Con as being a bit pissed off that Jesus stole her holiday.

Love Jeremy Davies, I do, and I think the cast for this show is stellar, but first they were bringing in the Greco-Roman gods, now they’re bringing in Jesus? I’m worried they’re going to deviate way too much from the book.
