FIRST LOOK: Jon Hamm and Derek Jacobi in Good Omens adaptation

December 19th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens TV show is shaping up to be something pretty special.

Today we have tow awesome bits of casting, Firstly, Jon Hamm as the Angel Gabriel looking fabulous as the Angel Gabriel, who is tipped to have a more prominent role in the series than he did in the books with his character being fleshed out by ideas that Gaiman and the late Pratchett had put together for a proposed sequel to the original book which will sadly probably not happen now, given that Pratchett is no longer with us.

Next up is the great Derek Jacobi as the voice of God, Metatron.

These are two awesome bits of casting, joining David Tennant and Michael Sheen as as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale

Let us know if you’re as excited for the series as we are…

 Good Omens hits Amazon Video worldwide and the BBC in the UK in 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
