NBC casts its Constantine

NBC have announced the lead casting for their ‘Constantine’ adaptation: Deadline is reporting that Matt Ryan, best known for roles in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behaviour, Layer Cake and the Sundance film Flypaper has the bagged the role. Adapted from the DC Comic Hellblazer, John Constantine is a scruffy, chain-smoking Scouse magician and Occult detective – and quite far removed from the role as played by Keanu Reeves in the 2005 movie adaptation. He’s a great character and the universe is rich to mine for ongoing arcs and supernatural stories, but Ryan is fairly unproven as a lead. Definitely one to keep an eye on as it develops anyway.
