'American Gods': 'The 100's' Ricky Whittle Cast As Shadow Moon

"The 100's" Ricky Whittle has another project in the works.

The actor is set to star in "American Gods" for Starz.

Ricky will play Shadow Moon in the upcoming series, based on Neil Gaiman's book, and from showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green.

"We searched every continent and country and all the islands in between for our Shadow Moon, and we are lucky to have found Ricky," Bryan said in a statement. "Fans of the novel will find he has every bit of the heart of the character they fell in love with."

The author complimented Ricky's auditions.

"I'm thrilled that Ricky has been cast as Shadow. His auditions were remarkable. The process of taking a world out of the pages of a book, and putting it onto the screen has begun. 'American Gods' is, at its heart, a book about immigrants, and it seems perfectly appropriate that Shadow will, like so much else, be Coming to America. I'm delighted Ricky will get to embody Shadow. Now the fun starts," Gaiman said in his statement.

Currently, Ricky stars on The CW's "The 100" as Lincoln.

"American Gods" begins shooting in April.
