Good Omens has found both good and evil. TVInsider reports David Tennant and Michael Sheen have joined the upcoming Amazon TV show.
Based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, the fantasy-drama revolves around the birth of Satan’s son and the efforts of an angel and a demon to try and stop the coming apocalypse.
Sheen has been cast as the angel, Aziraphale, and Tennant will play the demon Crowley. Good Omens is slated to premiere on Amazon in 2019.
From Neil Gaiman:
f you are looking for actors to play two of the best-loved characters you and Terry Pratchett ever created, then, if you are very lucky and have been very good, you will get Michael Sheen and David Tennant to bring them to life. The best Welsh actor of his generation gets to be an angel, the best Scottish actor of his, a demon. Terry and I wrote Good Omens—I like to think it’s one of the funniest novels ever written about the end of the world and how we are all going to die—almost 30 years ago. It’s strange that it feels more relevant now than it ever did before. I only wish that Terry could be here to see it come to life with such a fantastic team.”
