Playtone, Tom Hanks’ production company, is currently working on a television series based on Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods, which is expected to show on HBO in late 2013 or early 2014.
Playtone has several successful series to its credit, including Band of Brothers, The Pacific, John Adams, and Electric City. The series is to be directed by Robert Richardson (cinematographer for The Aviator, Hugo and Django Unchained) and the script written by Richardson and Gaiman.
No word yet has been released on the casting, so I thought I’d play the fore-casting game (haha) and propose my pick of actors. I want to emphasize that this is a wish list, not news I read anywhere.
Shadow Moon: Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo in A Game of Thrones, Ronon Dex in Stargate: Atlantis). He’s got the physique and the mixed heritage.
