Dane Cook has joined Starz’s American Gods adaptation, the newest member of a cast that also includes Ian McShane and Gillian Anderson. Deadline reports that Cook will play Robbie, friend of lead character Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), a role that honestly does not seem like a very big stretch. You may laugh at this casting now, but know that you should never underestimate the power of Bryan Fuller: In a year, Dane Cook GIFsets are going to be everywhere on Tumblr.
