David Tennant On His Good Omens Casting: "It's A Dream Team And A Dream Gig"

Image

 “Michael Sheen, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, it’s a dream team and a dream gig. I am very excited that I’ve been asked to be part of this amazing project. Bring on the Apocalypse!” declared David.

 David will star opposite Michael Sheen who takes on the role of the angel Aziraphale.

NEW INTERVIEW: David Tennant Talks Broadchurch The Final Episode And The Future For Hardy

Image
The critically acclaimed award-winning drama Broadchurch concluded its third and final series on BBC America last night.

The series saw David Tennant and Olivia Colman star as detectives Alec Hardy and Ellie Miller, who were reunited in the hunt for the perpetrator of a serious sexual assault.

The final episode saw Hardy and Ellie uncover the truth behind the rape and lives in Broadchurch are changed forever...

David spoke to Yahoo! about the end of an era... “I think the journey that Miller and Hardy go on is so beautifully summed up in that final scene,” David says. “They’re both broken people, really. They’re people who don’t have anyone other than each other. They’re sort of the closest thing to best friends that the other one has. They’re both kind of disconnected from their families, and they’ve been through some terrible, bruising experiences. They feel like slightly incomplete human beings. They found each other in this world, and yet even then they can’t quite connect.”

PHOTOS: David Tennant Returns As Kilgrave For Jessica Jones Season 2

Image
Big news broke in the Marvel Cinematic Universe earlier this week when it was revealed that David Tennant would be returning to the role of Kilgrave for Season 2 of Marvel's Jessica Jones. The new season has been filming in New York for several months already, but David was recently spotted on set with co-stars Krysten Ritter and Eka Darville.

Season One of the show saw former superhero Jessica Jones trying to lead a low key life as a private detective in New York's Hell's Kitchen following a traumatic experience at the hands of Kilgrave, a man with the power of mind control. Those who have already watched the show will have seen how Jessica dealt with her tormentor, so the new scenes have raised many questions for fans of the series. Marvel, however, are keeping tight lipped about David's involvement, so it looks like we'll all have to wait until Season 2 hits Netflix in early 2018 to find out!

In the meantime, enjoy some new on set photos here, courtesy of HQ Celeb…

Good Omens: Read The Novel Behind David Tennant's New Project

Image
As we posted yesterday, David Tennant and Michael Sheen have been cast in the new BBC Two and Amazon co-production of Good Omens. The six-part comic fantasy series has been adapted by Neil Gaiman from the novel that he co-wrote with the late Sir Terry Pratchett. 


Martin Sheen will star as the somewhat fussy angel and rare-book dealer Aziraphale, and David Tennant will play his opposite number, the fast living demon Crowley, both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle and of each other. So it’s really terrible news for both of them that, if Heaven and Hell have their way, the world will end on Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis has risen, tempers are flaring. The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse are ready to ride. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist…

BREAKING NEWS: David Tennant To Play Crowley In Good Omens TV Series

Image
David Tennant has been announced as the demon Crowley in the TV adaptation of Good Omens, the much-loved novel by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. David will star opposite Michael Sheen who takes on the role of the angel Aziraphale. The highly anticipated adaptation will be co-produced by BBC Studios with Narrativia, the production company of Pratchett’s daughter Rhianna, and the Blank Corporation, in association with BBC Worldwide for Amazon Prime Video and the BBC. 

The six-part comedy drama Good Omens will be set in 2018 on the edge of the apocalypse. An angel and a demon have been living on earth for centuries in an uneasy truce, and have become quite fond of their existence among humanity. Therefore, they're not too enthusiastic about the end of the world. Louche demon Crowley and fussy angel Aziraphale could probably stop it...if only they hadn't mislaid the Antichrist...


Michael Sheen told Variety: "I first read ‘Good Omens’ as a teenager and it’s been one o…
