Michael Sheen and David Tennant Will Star in Amazon’s ‘Good Omens’ Adaptation

We’ve known for a while that Neil Gaiman was adapting his and Terry Pratchett’s amazing novel Good Omens for television. The series eventually landed at Amazon, and is being co-produced by BBC studios. The big news everyone has been waiting on though is who the heck are going to play Aziraphale and Crowley?

Well, thanks to Variety, we now know. According to the publication, Michael Sheen and David Tennant have been respectively cast as the Angel and Demon. Sheen is best known for his roles in the Twilight saga and Masters of Sex, but to me he’ll always be 30 Rock‘s “Wesley Snipes.” David Tennant is, of course, David Tennant.

The casting is pretty ideal (even if Tennant’s a little thin for how I always pictured Crawley). Often I get nervous when my favorite books get adapted for screen, but since Neil Gaiman himself actually wrote the six episodes and is showrunning, I’m pretty confident we’ll get something true to the text at least.

I’m excited.
