In the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett novel, the Archangel Gabriel has what amounts to a bit part – but when he started adapting the book for TV, Gaiman decided angels should have a better/bigger role in it and Gabriel, God’s primary messenger, got a lot more lines.
Now Jon Hamm has been cast as the Archangel Gabriel, who is everything Aziraphale is not: tall, good-looking, charismatic and impeccably dressed.
Good Omens is an Amazon Prime Video series that is slated to premiere in 2019 and stars Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as the demon, Crowley.
Neil Gaiman posted a photo of David Tennant and Michael sheen in costume as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale for Amazon Prime Video’s adaptation of Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s brilliant fantasy novel, Good Omens.
The photo was shared on Twitter to announce the beginning of production on the limited series which will launch globally on amazon Prime Video in 2019.
