NBC’s CONSTANTINE Will Keep His Blonde Hair And Accent
Here’s a little update regarding NBC‘s Constantine series that will have Hellblazer fans rather happy, it seems Hollywood has learned from their mistakes with the Keanu Reeves movie. Bleeding Cool is reporting that the Constantine series, which has just found a director for its pilot, will be sporting blonde hair and an English accent.
According to the site, Constantine will be a Londoner with an accent. This seems to indicate that the show may be casting someone from across the pond to bring the character to life. While these are largely superficial characteristics, many fans will be happy to hear the show will be sticking much closer to the source material than the divisive movie starring Keanu.
Now Constantine is actually from Liverpool and is occasionally based in London in the comics, but Bleeding Cool suggests that this version will actually be a Londoner. So while the first two bits are good news, it doesn’t sound like it will be 100% accurate to the source. I think getting an accent and blonde hair is good enough, but I’m sure some will disagree. What do you think about the news? What blonde (or at least someone willing to do a quick dye job) Brit can you see playing TV’s Constantine?
