A “just for fun” mock-up – Pencilled concept, Tim Roth & Benedict Cumberbatch as Constantine and Morpheus respectively… following on from a conversation/debate on Facebook.

Anyway, from Book One here’s my first two definite choices.

  1. Oh god oh god oh god oh god oh god – that is the most perfect casting ever, and I never would even have thought of it.

    Even the full list I completely agree with regarding the actors I know (I shall have to go IMDB the rest 😉 )

    Now all we need is control of reality so we can make it happen. Oh man….. I medically need this to happen :/

  2. I’ve traditionally liked Callum Keith Rennie for Constantine stand-ins (alas, he lacks the accent), but your Tim Roth is inspired. Beautiful work, truly.

    • Oh yeah, I see what you mean with CKR, I think I tend to discount American actors due to him being a Liverpudlian who grew up in London…

      I’d previously always favoured the younger (pre Bond, Our Friends In The North era) Daniel Craig… but he’s to buffed and iconic now… Roth has the twitchy, slobbish edge. – laughs.
