American Gods: Kristin Chenoweth as Easter Revealed in New Image

American Gods Easter Teaser

Over this summer hardly a week goes by without some tidbit of American Gods information trickling through from Bryan Fuller’s (Hannibal) adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel of the same name. The more that gets revealed about the Starz television project, the better it looks, and anticipation is now skyrocketing ahead of its premiere next year. Its star-studded cast hasn’t hurt in the slightest, and more and more it’s looking like American Gods may just be the show to beat in 2017.

Like Gaiman’s novel, the show follows Shadow Moon, played by Ricky Whittle (The 100) as he’s drawn into a world of gods both old and new by the mysterious Mr. Wednesday, played by Ian McShane (Deadwood). As the world moved on from the gods of yesteryear, new gods—like Gillian Anderson’s (The X-Files) Media and Bruce Langley’s (Deadly Waters) Technical Boy—have risen to take their place, leading to an impending war between gods. The new gods will be squaring off against the likes of Orlando Jones’ (The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea) Mr. Nancy and the recently announced Kristin Chenoweth as Easter, whom fans got their first peak at earlier today.

Fuller himself tweeted out the first photo of Chenoweth as Easter in all her pastel glory. While the image doesn't reveal the actress in full, it provides a decent glimpse at what to expect from the character, shown here decked out in an overly fancy, floral headdress like you might see at Easter services each spring.
