It occurs to me that in Good Omens, the Metatron is described as looking like a beautiful young man, and as being identical to Beelzebub in every way except the colour of their flames.

Wouldn't Orlando look fabulous doubling as an angel and a devil, with golden and red fire respectively?

...whu. Okay, that's it. They need to cast him in the Good Omens movie.

My goodness. You nearly broke my brain.

Are you trying to kill me? Good god, that's a fantastic mental image.

Mmm... nice mental images. *strokes them*

Think they'd let him be naked? *grin*

Goddammit, woman, you are a genius! Orlando made up of golden/red flames sounds very, very enticing. Now I must inform my fellow Good Omens-loving friends. :D

That's... brilliant.

However, I won't be sold until I see him play characters other than Legolas and Will Turner. Definite potential, though, very very smart.

I feel the urge to do a photomanip of Orlie's face to make him look like Metatron. Ooooh, firey!

Oh yes, he'd be delicious...but am I the only one wishing upon wish that Johnny Depp will play Crowley? Or perhaps Christian Slater...I don't care, they're morbidly pretty!

I always thought Orlando Bloom would do well to be Azaphireal (yes, I spelled it wrong, I can never spell it correctly, sorry), he's angelically handsome. I think another good person to play Metatron/Beezelbub would be Stuart Townsend (I'm still depressed over LXG--how could he be a part of that train wreck!). Townsend is just intoxicatingly evil. Beezelbub would do well to be so sinful.

Christian Slater as our dear Crowley? Perhaps. Johnny Depp as Crowley? Hell yes! :D I'd love to see Crowley with a little bit o' Captain Sparrow in him. I don't particularily agree with Orlando as Aziraphale, the two don't seem to click in my head. For some reason the Azzy in my head resembles Cary Elwes (Wesley in The Princess Bride). Scary. @_@
