News Break: Matt Ryan will play John Constantine on Arrow

We were ALL sad to say goodbye to the NBC show Constantine. While it doesn’t look like the series is being nabbed up by any network (yet, anyway), we can expect to see Matt Ryan reprise his role as John Constantine on Arrow this season. Here’s the official word from The CW:

As announced at TCA this afternoon, we have cast Matt Ryan as John Constantine in episode 405 of “Arrow,” entitled “Haunted.”

John Constantine is a weather worn exorcist and expert on the supernatural and the occult.  He is a detective, magician, and a hunter of demons, and will provide critical support to Oliver (Stephen Amell) when arrows aren’t enough.

EP Marc Guggenheim says: “We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow. Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to Arrow and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.”

And here’s the man himself letting us know to expect him in Star City:
