‘American Gods‘ has just grown slightly larger as they have added Corbin Bernsen (‘L.A. Law’,’Psych’) to the cast as Vulcan. Vulcan looks to be one of the major players in the series as he is described as one of Mr. Wednesday’s oldest friends. Not only that, but he found a way to use his powers in the modern world in a way which makes him not so eager to jump into a war that might endanger his way of life and some of the friendships which he may have formed with the newer Gods.
For those unfamiliar with the plot of the novel and the soon series, the story depicts a war brewing between the gods of old whose power is waning against the new Gods which were created by Humanity’s more modern views on life and love for things such as money and technology. At the heart of it all is Mr. Wednesday who is the one setting this war into motion.
