Good find! Seems like a nice bloke - a lot more charismatic than comic Chas, but that's fine by me. Wish they'd given him a bit more to do in the pilot, but hey ho. It looks like he's been upgraded to a proper sidekick for the second episode, so I look forward to seeing him in that.

He does seem a bit squirrelly and uncomfortable under questioning, like a guy who's signed non-disclosure agreements out the wazoo and basically can't talk about anything just yet. He also does that thing that everyone does, where they make some vague comments about 'having read the comics X years ago, and obviously I've read and enjoyed a lot more of them since I got the job...' - I recall Brian Azzarello and Denise Mina making similar remarks before their runs began. But that's fair enough, playing the PR game is part of the job, and you can't just shut down and interviewer by saying 'Nah, love, never read 'em - are they good?'

There's a little talk that Papa Midnite will turn up in the series, as will Jim Corrigan of The Spectre fame. I know this stuff was mentioned elsewhere, but it's nice to have it confirmed.

Had no idea he was the child abusing bloke (Reggie Ladoux) in True Detective - he's certainly got a presence when he needs it. It'd be nice if they did a Chas possession episode, or just had him unleash Chas's violent side, to see him segue from his natural, affable persona to a more malevolent one. Though we've got an 'evil' Constantine in the pilot now, so that might be overkill.

TL;DR - nice bloke, good actor, glad he got the job.

If he does at some point beat the living crap out of our man John, that would also not be unwelcome.

Was it in Carey's run he finally snapped and just went to town on John? I loved that scene. Dark, but completely believable.

Heh, I still remember he showed up with Gemma and Angie on Empathy Is The Enemy arc, only to beat John again. Then they reconciled with him in the end cause he's seeing and sharing conjob's memory and suffering.

I like buying these comics and they don’t know they’re selling them to Chas.
:laugh: :laugh:
Even better would be if Matt Ryan'd gone out and bought the books himself.

What a great interview, he sounds like a top bloke - hope the show works out for him!

And not just because I want to see a monkey stick her finger up Matt's arse in season 3.

Chas' mom Queenie was mentioned, too. There's now another possibility as to why Chas was able to survive the cable aside from my John putting a Sigil on him theory

FYI, Chas is not immortal. Great story behind him returning to life. Episode 10. #Constantine

I think in the show, their relationship is forged, however it came about, it's a fact they've known each other for a very long time, and Chas is very privy to Constantine's dealings, and he also realizes that there's things in this world, or the underworld - in this realm in life - that only Constantine can fix. At any cost. And he also knows that Constantine's a bastard, and he doesn't want to do any of it. He's a little bit lazy, and he's a drunk, and he'd rather not deal with demons, but somebody has to do it. And so Chas prods him along. He makes sure that he's fed. He makes sure that he's sober enough to handle his business, and he also makes sure that he lives up to all of these other people that have died in his wake, for the better good.

Swoon.
