Mr. Nancy/Anansi, played by Orlando Jones, is a trickster God come to life in Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. In this exclusive clip Mr. Nancy gives an explosive speech to a group of slaves aboard a ship bound to America. Clad in a sharp purple suit he gives a rousing speech about racism in America, what they’ve got coming for them when they land, and the future of their owners.
For many, including myself, Mr. Nancy’s vignette is the most memorable ‘Coming to America’ story you’ll experience in American Gods. It’s socially relevant, show-stopping, and gives you only but a taste of who Mr. Nancy is and the lengths he’s willing to go to survive.
