American God Orlando Jones' super awesome Lightning Round

Last night's American Gods episode was praiseworthy for a number of reasons, first and foremost because of Orlando Jones' fiery introduction to the series.

Well into our second episode of Bryan Fuller's new Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman's beloved novel, Jones' Mr. Nancy -- one of the Old Gods falling out of power and prestige in modern day America -- enters the hull of a seventeenth century slave ship bound for the States, then promptly and powerfully incites mayhem.

Honestly, after the intensity of such a scene, it's hard to imagine Jones laughing around and having as much fun as he does in our Lightning Round video below. But of course, Jones is a comedian above all, so fun and laughs are expected and delivered. And that quick wit certainly helps Jones while being pummeled with our important pop culture questions, about everything from his weirdest role to the last comic book he read.

Check it out, and be sure to leave proper praise for Anansi in the comments below.
