GOOD OMENS: Frances McDormand Cast in a Heavenly Role

July 20, 2018 by  

Holy…Frances McDormand has joined the cast of Prime Video’s GOOD OMENS as the voice of God, it was announced via a cheeky audio intro at Comic-Con.

“We knew that God had to be a woman,” executive producer/co-author of the book Neil Gaiman said during the panel. “We were talking about great American actresses. And then out of the blue one day, I got an email from Frances McDormand asking if she could borrow my house in Scotland [having never met before]. And I was like, by the way.”

The series is based on the book by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The series stars David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm, Anna Maxwell Martin, Josie Lawrence, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, and Nick Offerman.

Per Prime, “The End of the World is coming, which means a fussy Angel and a loose-living Demon who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.”

Given the book’s passionate fan base—”these copies are read to death!”—”I knew I had this enormous obligation to that fandom to give them something that would make them happy,” Gaiman said. “But, at the same time, I also knew it was my obligation to give them something they don’t know they want yet.”
