If you had the choice...

#1 Posted by Constantine (16046 posts) - - Show Bio

to cast the actor who would play the Liverpudlian, John Constantine, who would you pick?

#2 Posted by Constantine (16046 posts) - - Show Bio

anyone?...
 
well I wouldn't mind seeing either:
 

 Kiefer Sutherland
 
or
 

 Ewan McGregor

Ewan McGregor is a good choice, I'm not too sure about Keifer Sutherland though. 
 
What about James Marsters taking his stride from his Spike (Buffy) persona?

Jim Sturgess  (:
He did a really good Liverpool accent in Across the Universe
& he's a top notch actor.

@Constantine:  Your probably right, I'm not too familiar with the character. :/ I just chose the first person who was a little scruffy and could do a  Scouse accent. lol

I like the idea of Ewan McGregor,  I think he'd pull it off rather smoothly.

Marsters has my vote.

I think his accent would be the hardest part to pull off. He's from liverpool but moved to london at 16, so it would change his accent, be a mix of the two.

But looks wise, Daneil Craig already looks like the older Hellblazer's John. Couldn't think of anyone who'd pull off the new younger Constantine...

Charlie Hunnam definitely hes great in sons of anarchy and green street hooligans plus i would like Constantine to be depicted a bit younger and he already has accent and i think he would play the part well

@thing150: He looks nothing like Constantine.
