Nick Offerman will star in Good Omens, an adaptation of the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman book and will play the U.S. Ambassador and father of the child Warlock, who is mistakenly believed to be the Antichrist. Okay, so The Omen, only not The Omen because the kid isn’t really evil. Now, this sounds like something I could totally watch.

“There may not be anyone alive who can deadpan a line quite as well as Nick Offerman,” Gaiman told Variety. ”He’s a terrific performer and has to say a lot of things in Good Omens that are humanly impossible to deliver with a straight face. Fortunately, Nick is not entirely human.”

Offerman added, “If you had told me when I first read Good Omens in the early ’90s that I would one day visit South Africa to giggle with Neil Gaiman at laptop-screened footage of Dr. Who and David Frost dancing because I was essaying a role in the adaptation of said book, I would likely have offered to purchase some of whatever you must be smoking.But here I am, still giggling at the luck of it.”

The six-parter will also star Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, and Miranda Richardson, among others.
