American Gods star Ricky Whittle has joined the cast of Netflix’s Haifaa Al-Mansour-directed movie Nappily Ever After. Many people in the U.K. will remember Whittle from his role as Calvin in Channel 4 soap Hollyoaks. Filming for the adaptation, which is based on Trisha R. Thomas' novel of the same name, began on 28th August and will see Whittle star alongside Sanaa Lathan. A launch date has not been set.
Nappily Ever After focuses on Violet Jones (Lathan), who has a revelation about what her life is and what she wants it to be after an accident of sorts at the hairdresser. Whittle plays Clint, a doctor from London who has a long-term relationship with Violet. The duo separate when Whittle’s character begins to feel he doesn’t really know Violet, no matter how close they are or want to be. (Deadline)
