David Tennant, Michael Sheen Debut Wild Hair in Neil Gaiman’s ‘Good Omens’ Photo
It was one thing to see David Tennant and Michael Sheen sporting dye jobs for Amazon and Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens, but it’s quite another to see them in costume. Meet Crowley and Aziraphale in a fresh photo from the 2018 limited series based on Terry Pratchett’s work!
Where previously we caught a glimpse of the Jessica Jones and Masters of Sex stars preparing to read their parts, showrunner Gaiman debuted a more official look at the pair in actual production. The photo is noted as a flashback, so we’d bet Tennant isn’t sporting those long ginger locks for long:
Good Omens is based on Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett’s acclaimed novel of the same name, which follows the angel Aziraphale (Sheen) and the demon Crowley (Tennant) attempting to prevent the End Times, as set in motion by the birth of Satan’s son. Here’s the synopsis:
Good Omens takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.
So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And… someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.
Additional cast includes Better Call Saul alum(?) Michael McKean as Sergeant Shadwell, Jack Whitehall as Newt, True Detective star Adria Arjona as Anathema Device, Miranda Richardson as Madame Tracy, Nina Sosanya as Sister Mary Loquacious, Ned Dennehy as Duke of Hell Hastur and Ariyon Bakare as fellow Duke of Hell Ligur.
Good Omens will start as a global release on Amazon Prime Video, and eventually broadcast on the BBC afterward. We’ll see more as Good Omens production continues, so stay tuned.
