So I finally got around to reading Anansi Boys

… and I’ve heard that it’s probably going to be integrated in the American Gods TV series. Nevertheless, I’ve put together my fantasy cast for a potential Anansi Boys movie:

  • John Boyega as Fat Charlie Nancy
  • Jermaine Fowler as Spider
  • Garrett Morris as Anansi / Mr. Nancy (though I love Orlando Jones in the show)
  • Katie Leung as Daisy Day
  • Nathalie Emmanuel as Rosie Noah
  • Tracy Ifeachor as Bird Woman
  • Alfre Woodard as Mrs. Noah
  • David Thewlis as Grahame Coats
  • Joanna Lumley as Maeve Livingstone
  • Loretta Devine as Callyanne Higgler
  • Idris Elba as Tiger
  • Nichelle Nichols as Mrs. Dunwiddie
