Gillian Anderson just lined up her next TV gig—and no, it's not more episodes of The X-Files.
The actress is re-teaming with her Hannibal boss Bryan Fuller for the new Starz series American Gods, the network announced on Friday. Anderson will star in the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's novel as Media, a character described as "the mouthpiece for the New Gods, functioning as their public face and sales representative, by taking the form of various iconic celebrities. She lives off the attention and worship that people give to screens — to their laptops, their TVs, to their iPhones in their hands while they watch their TVs. Ever the perky spokesperson, and always in control, she spins stories in whatever direction best suits her."
