Casting done on Good Omens leads.

I dunno. Michael Sheen isn’t quite doing it for me, somehow. Not sure why, but the casting there doesn’t thrill me.

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.

The show is set in 2018 on the brink of an apocalypse as humanity prepares for a final judgment. But Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a demon, aren’t enthusiastic about the end of the world, and can’t seem to find the Antichrist. Sheen will play the role of Aziraphale, while Tennant will play Crowley. It will consist of six one-hour episodes.

Good Omens coming to TV THANK YOU GOD THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER

Everything is awesome, the world is a wonderful place, and things will be OK:

Amazon has confirmed Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens will be adapted into a TV series to air next year.

It’s appropriate timing as the 1990 novel is set in 2018. Something of a dream collaboration among sci-fi fans, it’s a comedic tale of an angel and a demon who try to stave off the Apocalypse, having decided they enjoy life among humans too much. There’s also a mix-up about the true identity of a young boy identified as the Antichrist.

Ignore the petulant whining from the BBC about the state of the universe: clearly a world where Good Omens is coming to the screen isn’t a horrible place.  By freaking definition, in fact. Comes out in 2018, six part series, don’t know who is directing or starring in it yet.  And I do not care.

Interesting rumor on Good Omens BBC(?) adaptation.

That being Neil Gaiman and Rhianna Pratchett (yup, Terry Pratchett’s daughter), respectively. I’m calling it a ‘rumor’ because I’m not seeing this reported anywhere else, but the first two at least make sense: Neil Gaiman co-authored Good Omens and Rhianna Pratchett is herself a scriptwriter*. So we’ll see

Moe Lane

*I imagine that having that last name can be a burden in this field, though.
