JONES FIRED; BURNS ALL HIS BRIDGES
MEDIA NEWS-011720
Problem Plagued Series Loses a Principle Actor Over Racial Interpretation

American Gods’ Orlando Jones, who played Mr. Nancy on the show confirmed in a video posted to Twitter that he was fired from the Starz fantasy series in September. He then blamed third season showrunner Charles “Chic” Eglee for it, saying said the new season’s showrunner is “Connecticut-born and Yale-educated, so he’s very smart, and he thinks that Mr. Nancy’s angry, get s— done is the wrong message for black America. That’s right, this white man sits in that decision-making chair and I’m sure he has many black BFFs that are his advisers and made it clear to him that if they did not get rid of that angry god Mr. Nancy, he’d start a Denmark Vesey uprising in this country.” Eglee took the high road and simply said the character didn’t fit the tone for the season and so he was dropped. It’s another in a series of issues with the show which had fired showrunners Bryan Fuller (season one) and Michael Green (before season two even started). Both had problems with the production company Fremantle US over budget and creative direction. So Jones took his firing and decided to make a racial thing about it which meant he wasn’t really paying attention to the fact that the show lives in total chaos.
