NBC has cast their Constantine. Matt Ryan (Layer Cake, Flypaper) will portray the character originally created by Alan Moore for DC Comics. 

“The project centers on John Constantine (Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. John Constantine is described as a working-class Londoner with rakish good looks, scruffy blond hair, deadpan humor, and signature trench coat, who has been studying the dark arts since he was a teenager. When the daughter of a late friend is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her”.

Constantine is being written by The Mentalist’s executive producer Daniel Cerone. David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) is co-writing the script. Will Constantine be able to survive the pilot? Sound off below Maniacs!
