Variety is reporting that Michael Sheen (Midnight in Paris, Masters of Sex) and David Tennant (Dr. Who, Jessica Jones) have been cast in the Amazon TV adaptation of the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett collaboration Good Omens.  The 2006 book by Gaiman and the late Pratchett is a genre bending tale full of dry humor, wit, and of course, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

According to the report, “The show is set in 2018 on the brink of an apocalypse as humanity prepares for a final judgment. But Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a demon, (who are also best friends, in spite of the difficult circumstances and sides that they are on) aren’t enthusiastic about the end of the world, and can’t seem to find the Antichrist. Sheen will play the role of Aziraphale, while Tennant will play Crowley. It will consist of six one-hour episodes.” read more
