TV’s Constantine Casts Welsh Actor Matt Ryan In Title Role

matt-ryan Deadline reports David S. Goyer’s Constantine adaptation set up at NBC has cast its titular role with Welsh actor Matt Ryan.

That’s him at the right. He’ll be playing John Constantine, the antihero who’s described in this incarnation as:

an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond.

Well, he’s not blonde or a Londoner (though, he certainly could be turned into one by the time cameras roll), but still a lot closer than Keanu Reeves, right? Daniel Cerone wrote the script, from a story he developed with Goyer.
