Constantine comes to the small screen at the end of next month, and now we have a little more news to share about the occult detective; Jim Corrigan will be played by Emmet Scanlan, who was recently in the comic-book-live-action world as a riot guard in [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073)!
Scanlan (best known for Hollyoaks and The Fall) will be taking on the role of
... a homicide detective in New Orleans who is plunged into world of occult horrors. Furthermore, Corrigan is someone who is obsessed with justice, and who doesn't let police procedure or red tape stop him from putting away the bad guys, even if the bad guys turn out to be inhuman.
It will be fascinating to see how this character goes up against himself, and whether he is a help or a hindrance to the star character. We'll also have to wait and see how the character develops into the Spectre - but thankfully, we don't have long to wait!
This comic book/horror live action series begins October 24th.
