Good Omens Casting News: Sir Derek Jacobi To Play The Metatron



As filming on the comedy drama series Good Omens continues, another cast member has been revealed. Sir Derek Jacobi has been filming today in the role of the Metatron, the angelic being which serves as the Voice of God.

Good Omens is a six part series based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The show is a co-production between Amazon, BBC Studios, Narrativia and the Blank Corporation. David Tennant stars as the demon Crowley, who, back in the Beginning, was Eden's serpent. Michael Sheen joins him as Aziraphale, once the angelic guardian of the eastern gate of Paradise. The unlikely pair, who have grown quite fond of their life on earth, are forced to join forces to avert the oncoming Apocalypse which is triggered by the birth of the Anti-Christ.

The ensemble cast also includes Michael McKean, Josie Lawrence, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson and Adria Arjona. The series will continue filming in the UK and South Africa until spring 2018 and is headed for a worldwide release on Amazon Prime in early 2019, with a terrestrial broadcast on BBC Two to follow. BBC Worldwide will manage overseas distribution. Good Omens was scripted by Neil Gaiman and is being directed by Douglas Mackinnon.
