Orlando Jones Transforms Into Drunk Aunt Orlandra Jones, Tries to Understand American Gods


American Gods, a fantasy series that would probably take hours for you to fully explain to your elderly family members, is a trippy good time. (Despite some behind-the-scenes drama.) The delightful Orlando Jones, one of the cast members, knows that all too well, so he indulged Vulture with a game while swinging by our New York Comic Con studio this weekend: If he were to play a drunk family member over the holidays who had no idea what the show was, how would his fellow castmates respond? Enter stage right, his “inner black woman” Orlandra Jones. “I’m happy to degrade myself for the content,” he joked.
