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…
David Tennant is returning to Jessica Jones. He will appear in the second season of the Marvel Netflix drama about the titular super-powered private investigator played by Krysten Ritter. Entertainment Weekly broke the news today with a photo of the pair on set in New York.
Marvel have not confirmed specific details of how many season two episodes David will appear in. Fans of the show will know that his character, Kilgrave, met a grisly end at the hands of Jessica in the season one finale.
Season one is streaming on Netflix, and tells the story of Jessica who, after a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
Jessica Jones is set to return to Netflix in early 2018.
If you can't wait that long you can see Krysten in action as Jessica in The Defenders which premieres on Netflix on 18th August.
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…
David Tennant will be joining stars Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in the new Focus Features and Working Title movie, Mary, Queen Of Scots. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Josie Rourke, the artistic director at the Donmar Warehouse, who also directed David in the 2011 stage production of Much Ado About Nothing.
David plays an as yet undisclosed character in the film which follows the early life of Mary Stuart, who became Queen of France at 16 and a widow aged 18. It will also explore her relationship with Elizabeth I, rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a
masculine world. Mary's claim to the English throne, her determination to rule as more than a figurehead is a threat to Elizabeth's sovereignty.
Martin Compston plays Mary's third husband, the Earl of Bothwell, and the cast also includes Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn and Guy Pearce.
Mary, Queen Of Sots began shooting this week and is scheduled for release in 2018.
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… If you're not fa…
