ok why is everyone acting like crowley and aziraphale are the only characters in good omens and that means the cast is 100% white? i know they’re the only 2 y'all care about but why don’t you wait until the rest of the dozen major characters are cast before complaining?
God... I'm feeling you with the GO actors thing like people who are like "oh I always imagine Crowley as David Tennant!" Like did you??? No offence but you must have a very boring imagination
Look, I don’t like the cast but I’m not going to criticize people who like the actors or the actors themselfs (as far as I know they are good actors and good people) because this is just my opinion.
It’s true that we barely have a description for Crowley and Aziraphale, but the decition to cast Michael Sheen and David Tennant seems lazy, bland and boring to me (again this is MY opinion).
For Aziraphale we know that:
He has “plump” and “
He wears expensive and old fashioned clothes.
As Tracy says, he looks older than she thought.
And the infamous “
Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide.”
“Crowley had dark hair and good cheekbones and he was wearing snakeskin shoes, or at least presumably he was wearing shoes, and he could do really weird things with his tongue. And, whenever he forgot himself, he had a tendency to hiss. He also didn’t blink much.“
He wears sunglasses because his eyes are yellow
with slitted vertical pupils.
And I think that’s all (I really don’t remember if Crowley loking like if he was twenty-something and Zira 45, is canon or not).
Anyway, David Tennat doesn’t have good cheekbones and Michael Sheen is not “plump”. This is the only thing that differs from the descriptions we have.
I’m not suprised, I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed. It’s like if I was hungry and I wanted, let say, a soup, and someone gives me a bowl of soup but it turns out it’s insipid, it needs something, more flavour. I’m still gonna eat it because I’m hungry but it doesn’t satisfy me. That’s how I feel about this cast. I just hope we get more diversity with the rest of the cast (I’m not joking when I say that David and Michael look alike and I expected at least more physical or facial diferences between them)
