Matt Ryan Discusses “Constantine” Being a Smoker & Other Season 1 Goodies


His soul is damned to hell, he’s been locked up in a mental hospital and demons insist on possessing people to pay him a visit on here on Earth. Aw that’s just a typical day at the office for a seasoned demon hunter like John Constantine. Matt Ryan (No not the Atlanta Falcon’s football player. That would be another show entirely.) stars as John Constantine from the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC comics. Matt’s version of Constantine is a departure from the movie version Keanu Reeves made famous with his dirty blonde hair and British accent. Like both the movie and comic version of Constantine, Matt’s version will also be a smoker. Yes you heard me.

While American Television has strict rules about portraying smoking on TV, Constantine is a smoker even if we never get to see him take a drag from an actual cigarette. I had a chance recently to chat with Matt about this and his take on playing such an iconic comic book character. Full interview after the jump!

Dorothy of Oz Comic Unveiled at WonderCon; Plus Win the Comic Contest

Fans of the beloved “Oz” franchise will get a glimpse of the Emerald City with the official unveiling of the Dorothy of Oz limited edition comic book Saturday, April 2 at San Francisco’s 2011 WonderCon.  Ten lucky Ozians who can’t make the voyage to San Francisco will also win the comic in an exclusive Facebook Fan contest. Entrants must submit a personal video explaining in 60 seconds or less why they are excited about DOROTHY OF OZ and why they are the biggest OZ-fans on Facebook. It will run worldwide from Wednesday, March 30 through Wednesday, April 6.

There is also a forthcoming animated feature film starring Lea Michele (“Dorothy”), Martin Short (“The Jester”), Jim Belushi (“The no-longer Cowardly Lion”), Dan Aykroyd (“Scarecrow”), Kelsey Grammer (“The Tin Man”), Oliver Platt (“Wiser the Owl”), Hugh Dancy (“Marshall Mallow”), Megan Hilty (“China Princess”) and Patrick Stewart (“Tugg”).

Now, it has been a while since I’ve collected comics, so I’m not sure if this will be as big a buzz as the Godzilla one (which completely sold out in  one  day!), but it is an interesting concept based on the old classic.  The complete press release follows the jump.
