First look at Michael Sheen and David Tennant in Good Omens

Unlike a lot of authors, Neil Gaiman has actually had some pretty successful adaptations of his work, such as STARDUST and the recent STARZ series AMERICAN GODS. Sure, it's true, he's also had his ups-and-downs (including a still-unproduced SANDMAN adaptation), and he's been less adapted than some other writers, but his track record isn't too shabby. This bodes well for Amazon's upcoming GOOD OMENS, which was written by Gaiman and fellow fantasy author Terry Pratchett (DISCWORLD).

Anyway here's the official synopsis:

According to The Nice And Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies) the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon - both of whom have lived among Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle - are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist...

And this is our first look at the recently cast David Tennant and Michael Sheen as Crowley and Aziraphale, respectively:

Here's what Neil Gaiman himself had to say about the casting:

People have fallen in love with an angel and a demon in a book by Terry Pratchett and me, and they have been excited and nervous to see how they would appear on screen - and I was probably the most nervous and excited of all. This is a first look. Michael Sheen is the best and finest of bookseller angels, David Tennant the coolest and most delightful of demons. Together they are one hell of a double act (or do I mean one made in Heaven?)

Joining Tennant and Sheen on the series are Adria Arjona (Anathema Device), Nina Sosanya (Sister Mary Loquacious), Jack Whitehall (Newt), Michael McKean (Shadwell), Miranda Richardson (Madame Tracy), Ned Dennehy (Hastur) and Ariyon Bakare (Ligur)

So, any fans of GOOD OMENS out there? And if so, what do you think of the casting? Either way, sound off below!

Meanwhile GOOD OMENS will premiere on Amazon Prime in 2019.
