American Gods 3: Orlando Jones (Mr. Nancy/Anansi) licensed
American Gods is not new in the change actors between one season and another, more to problems of production choices dictated by the plot: after Kristin Chenoweth and Gillian Anderson, this time to leave is Orlando Jones, directly fired.
The actor, who in the series has until now interpreted Mr. Nancy/Anansi (the ancient god-spider in ghanaian swindler) has announced through a video posted on Twitter, lunging the new showrunner for the third season Charles Eglee.
According to what was written by the actor, Eglee was not satisfied with the interpretation of the message sent (of a black America is too violent, according to him) by the character of Jones; after the outburst, the actor has, however, thanked Neil Gaiman and the creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green.
Thank you #AmericanGods fans.
I know ya'll have LOTS of questions about the firing. As always I promise to tell you the truth and nothing but. ❤️ Always, Mr. Nancy🙏🏿 pic.twitter.com/sDouoQlUMd
