CONSTANTINE Finds Its 'Papa Midnite' For Season One
USA Today reveals that relative newcomer Michael James Shaw will join the cast of Constantine this year in the recurring role of Papa Midnite, the Voodoo King of New Orleans. They describe the character as, "a formidable magical adversary for demon hunter John Constantine," though in the comic books he actually leads a violent street gang and is considered the deadliest sorcerer in all of Manhattan. That's all we know about his role in the series for now, but Midnite has been both an ally and enemy to John Constantine over the years, so it should be interesting to see how they handle the character. For those of you with a good memory, Guardians of the Galaxy star Djimon Hounsou played the character in the 2005 movie. What do you guys think?
There had been talk of classic Constantine supporting character Papa Midnite playing a role in the first season of the NBC series, but now an actor has been found to play the Voodoo King of New Orleans. Who is it? Well, you can find out that and more after the jump!
