Constantine has a lot more on his plate to handle than just a couple of demons.
Tag: Constantine (1-5 of 5)
Just in time for Halloween, NBC is about to get a little bit spookier thanks to its new supernatural series, Constantine.
Based on the DC Comics property Hellblazer, Constantine stars Matt Ryan as the titular con man-turned-occult detective who begrudgingly keeps dark forces at bay as he struggles with the sins of his past.
In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Friday night game plan:
Watch: The Amazing Race (CBS): Season 25 starts tonight in Times Square before contestants take off to locales like St. Thomas, Malta, and the Shetland Islands.
DVR: MasterChef Junior (ABC): A new group of 8- to 13-year-old chefs will try to impress the finicky Gordon Ramsay when season two premieres Nov. 7.
Watch: Shark Tank (ABC): Warning: The entrepreneurs are getting more vicious during season six, kicking off tonight. As Daymond John told EW, “We’re really nasty to each other now.”
DVR: Grimm (NBC): When season 4 premieres Oct. 24, Nick and Hank will be haunted by four terrifying new Wesen.
Watch: Constantine (NBC): The new series follows the story of John Constantine, the antihero of the Hellblazer comic books, described as an “irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective.”
DVR: Go out. It’s Friday.
Fans first got a visually stunning and startling look at NBC’s upcoming thriller Constantine, based on the D.C. Comics character, on Saturday at the Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2014—and now the full trailer is online. Matt Ryan stars as the titular character, a working-class con man and demon hunter battling the forces of darkness, both real and internal. NBC previously stated that the character would be slightly different in his television incarnation, and has already replaced co-lead Lucy Griffiths with telenovela star Angelica Celaya.
Constantine premieres on Friday, October 24 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
NBC’s Constantine centers around John Constantine, a supernatural detective who finds himself having to defend the world against dark forces. The hour-long drama is based on characters from DC Comics and stars Matt Ryan as John Constantine. And now, the show has completed its series regular casting by adding three more name to the call sheet.
Sons of Anarchy‘s Harold Perrineau has joined the cast as Manny, “an authoritative angel assigned to watch over Constantine.” Manny is described as having the ability to “step into other people’s bodies.” His role is mainly to observe, but he is known to take action if it means saving a life.
Next up, True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths has also joined the cast. Griffiths will play Liv, “an offbeat young lady who finds herself teamed up with Constantine after she’s marked for death by a powerful demon.” Liv’s ability to see the supernatural among the human makes her a hot commodity in the war against evil.
Finally, True Detective‘s Charles Halford will play Chas, “Constantine’s oldest friend and staunch companion.” Chas is known for his survival skills, which might not be human after all.
