Our First Look at Matt Ryan as ‘John Constantine’

NBC has released this image of actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine from the pilot for ‘Constantine’. You will remember the 2005 film starring Keanu Reeves, which I thought was pretty cool but had many unhappy with how Reeves’ look was such a departure from the comic series. This time around they have nailed the comic book appearance with his blond hair and brown jacket (sort of like Cas from Supernatural if portrayed by the late Paul Walker).

Here is the NBC synopsis:

‘Constantine centers on John Constantine (Matt Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond. When Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of a late friend, is targeted by demons, Constantine steps in to save her. Griffiths’ Liv is an offbeat young woman tired of her ordinary life who comes to discover that she has the ability of seeing the supernatural world among us, which makes her a key player in the battle between good and evil. Liv teams up with Constantine to save lives, master her power, and learn more about her late father. Lost alum Harold Perrineau will play Manny, an authoritative angel assigned to watch over Constantine who has the power to step into other people’s bodies, and although he is meant only to observe, Manny will not hesitate to help out if he can save a life. Charles Halford will play Chas, Constantine’s oldest friend and staunch companion who possesses powerful survival skills that might possibly be supernatural.’

Should the show get picked up as a series, it should debut on NBC in the fall.
