This Pushing Daisies reunion is already in full bloom.
Kristin Chenoweth has reteamed with Bryan Fuller for Starz’s adaptation of American Gods, Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel. On Wednesday, Fuller tweeted a photo of Chenoweth decked out in a flowery headpiece for her role as the goddess Easter. While the novel finds the goddess struggling to find someone who can remember her origins, the Hairspray Live! star already looks unforgettable.
“Easter in her Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it!” Fuller rhymed.
American Gods follows mysterious ex-con Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) as he finds himself caught up in a battle between old and new gods. Easter, a free spirit who meets Shadow in San Francisco, may be doing better than some of her fellow old gods, but she still wishes to be known as more than an annual excuse to dye eggs.
Starz’s buzzy fantasy series — which also stars Ian McShane, Gillian Anderson, Orlando Jones, Bruce Langley, Yetide Badaki, Crispin Glover, Jonathan Tucker, Pablo Schreiber, and Cloris Leachman — debuts in 2017.
