News: Jack Whitehall Joins Cast Of Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman Good Omens

Jack Whitehall has joined the cast of Good Omens - the forthcoming six-part television adaptation for BBC Two and Amazon of the acclaimed novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
Also revealed as appearing in it are Michael McKean (Better Call Saul, This is Spinal Tap) and Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter, Churchill).
Whitehall will be playing Newton Pulsifer aka Newt - an unfulfilled wages clerk turned witch-hunter - and McKean will take on the role of Sergeant Shadwell, the leader of the witch-finder army who sends him on his mission. Miranda Richardson will play Madame Tracy, the psychic medium and part-time courtesan who provides a helping hand to the pair as they try to save the world from Armageddon.

Commenting on his casting as Newt, Whitehall says: "I feel extraordinarily privileged to have been asked to play this part and cannot wait to get started."

Michael McKean adds: "I’m thrilled to join this amazing cast and creative team. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather enjoy Armageddon with than Gaiman, Pratchett, Mackinnon and company”

Equal parts humour and horror, fantasy and drama, the series is written by Neil Gaiman (American Gods), who will also serve as Showrunner. As previously announced, Michael Sheen will star as the somewhat fussy angel and rare-book dealer Aziraphale, and David Tennant will play his opposite number, the fast living demon Crowley.

Good Omens will launch globally on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories in 2019 including in the UK, where it will also air on BBC Two at a later date.
