Based on the DC Comic formerly known as Hellblazer, the forthcoming TV series Constantine follows the misadventures and exploits of its title character John Constantine, a con man, skilled magician and occult detective. The comic book was last adapted, for the big screen, with 2005's Constantine starring Keanu Reeves, Shia LeBeouf, Rachel Weisz and Tilda Swinton. Though the movie adaptation was recieved well by general audiences, the Americanization of the title character upset fans of the comic book original.

John Constantine was created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissett, John Totleben and Jamie Delano for DC, and first appeared in the comic book Saga of the Swamp Thing #37, which was published in June 1985. John Constantines appearance was based on that of British rock legend Gordon Sumner, better known simply as Sting. The Character appeared as a main character in the comic book Hellblazer since, until last year when the character finally got his own, self titled comic book publication. 

The Cast

Starring as the series lead character will be Welsh actor Matt Ryan, whom previously starred alongside Man of Steel star Henry Cavill in the BBC's TV serial Tudors. Ryan will be accompanied by Charles Halford, whom has been cast as his loyal sidekick Chas Chandler. Joining the duo will be Lucy Griffiths as Liv Aberdine, and guiding them through their exploits will be an angel called Manny, portrayed by Lost and Matrix Revolutions star Harold Perrineau.

The new series, which looks set to be a firm favorite with fans of Supernatural, the Walking Dead and American Horror Story hits US TV network NBC Friday evening, October 24th, with subsequent episodes being aired every Friday evening.
