The Atlanta Falcons quarterback will star as John Constantine in the upcoming NBC TV adaptation of the DC comic.
Deadline is reporting that Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan has landed the lead role in Constantine, the NBC TV series based on the DC comic. Ryan had a tough season with the Falcons unable to make the playoffs, and it snows in Atlanta now, so it looks like ol' Matty Ice will be giving up football to reprise Keanu Reeves' role as the roguish, hard boiled, cigarette smoking magician in the NBC drama, which is still in the pilot stage. It's probably for the best, as Ryan isn't getting any younger, and... what? Oh.
Sorry folks, it looks like it's not Matt Ryan the football player, but Matt Ryan the Welsh actor (NCIS: Law and Order Criminal Minds Suspect Behavior). That actually makes a lot more sense, especially as it means we'll have a (sort of... well, close enough) British Constantine.
We asked controversial Superbowl Champion Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman for comment, and he told us, "I'm the best critic in the game! You come at me with a sorry ass John Constantine like Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, that's the result you gonna get! Don't you ever talk about me!"
"Matt Ryan the actor, on the other hand, is a fine choice," Sherman added. "I'm looking forward to it.
