Cole‘s character is described as a “heartthrob with a philosophical bent and former best friend of Archie Andrews. He is still smarting from the rift that took place between the two.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about these casting choices?
Earlier today, it was announced that Ricky Whittle had nabbed the role of Shadow Moon in American Gods.
After the news broke, some fans didn’t know whether to be happy or mad at him or the news — since he’d ultimately be leaving The 100 behind for the new Starz series.
It makes us question if, or when, Lincoln, will be killed or how he leaves the hit CW show, which just started it’s third season on the network.

The 34-year-old The 100 actor will star as Shadow Moon in the project, from Neil Gaiman‘s book of the same name, Deadline reports.
American Gods centers on a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.
Shadow Moon (Whittle), is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.
Neil took to Twitter to comment on the “white-washing” potential of the project. Read his tweet below:
