American Gods Gillian Anderson

American Gods Video: Gillian Anderson Channels Bowie as New God Media

After watching this clip of Gillian Anderson from Sunday’s American Gods, (Starz, 9/8c), you’ll likely have the same reaction as Technical Boy: “Are you f–ing with me right now?!” (And we mean that in a good way.)

Per the network, “Gillian Anderson stars as the New God Media in the critically acclaimed series American Gods. Media assumes whatever form will deliver her message most effectively and is often personified by iconic celebrities.”

In this clip, the X-Files star is clearly doing her finest David Bowie impression as she instructs Bruce Langley’s character about how best to proceed.

“You have an image problem,” she tells him. “You need to think about your brand.” She then informs him that Mr. World would like to “re-gift” his apology — which is apparently a thing that gods can do — to Wednesday and Shadow Moon, to which Technical Boy replies… oh, we’ll just let you watch and find out.
