Charles Halford discusses how Chas' past will play out on 'Constantine'

If you work with John Constantine, there’s a good chance you might not make it out of a job alive.

That’s a refrain John (Matt Ryan) has proven to be true for several weeks on NBC’s Constantine, but death doesn’t always have to mean the end of a friendship for John. His oldest pal, Chas Chandler (Charles Halford), has the uncanny ability to revive himself after a dance with death.

Chas has to take advantage of his gifts on tonight’s episode, “Danse Vaudou.” In anticipation of this larger showcase for the character, Charles Halford spoke with EW about what it’s like to play a guy who can come back from the dead, his history with the comic book source material, and teased about what fans can expect to learn about Chas as the season continues.

NBC's 'Constantine' completes series regular casting

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.
