NBC Casts John Constantine for Upcoming Pilot


NBC has recently found an actor to play the part of the sometime-con-man/sometime-mage John Constantine, for their upcoming TV adaptation of the long-running comic book series HellBlazer. According to Deadline.com, the studio has chosen Welsh actor Matt Ryan, whose past credits include Assassin’s Creed IV and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior).

Plot details are still sparse so there’s no telling where they will go with the pilot – whether it’s going to be a faithful adaptation of the comic book franchise or something that takes a lot of liberties with the source material, much like the Keannu Reeves-helmed film, which we personally consider as a good action-horror film but a very bad adaptation of the comic book.
