wossname: (Good Omens)
Now that's what we call a newsflash... in a coup of perfect casting, it's been announced that David Tennant will play Crowley, opposite the hugely talented Welsh actor Michael Sheen as Aziraphale. Anyone who's seen Tennant's deliciously louche portrayal of Peter Vincent in the fun 2011 remake of Fright Night will have no doubts that he can do a fantastic Crowley:

"Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been cast in the lead roles in the Amazon series adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s “Good Omens,” Variety has learned... co-produced by BBC Studios with Narrativia, the production company of Pratchett’s daughter Rhianna, and the Blank Corporation and in association with BBC Worldwide for Amazon Prime Video and the BBC. Gaiman, Caroline Skinner, and Chris Sussman are executive producing for BBC Studios, and Rob Wilkins and Rod Brown will executive produce for Narrativia. Gaiman adapted all six episodes of the series and will also serve as showrunner. Following its exclusive launch on Amazon Prime Video, the series will also be broadcast on BBC in the U.K...."

"Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons... Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it." – Neil Gaiman

...and here's a wee reminder of what the lead actors look like...

Bring it on!
