Yes! General squeeing going on. and you didn't hear that.
There are several unofficial and some official pictures online. I can't imagine what Aziraphale is getting up to. That hat is just Not Him. Maybe he's playing a role, as he did with the gardener.

I saw in the latest promotional youtube video for staged season 3 that both Tennent and Scheen had both got their good omens hairstyles and that filming was just about done

That is Victoria Street, and on the R.H. side above where the railings are, there is a walkway from the Royal Mile which has steps all the way down to the street, at the bottom of Vic.steet is the Grass Market and an old pub called the Last Drop which is still there, where they used to have a drink when there was a hanging it looks up to the back end of the castle just a bit further down.

That Hat is in the unofficial pictures. He looks like Jimmy Olsen.

Ah. Yes, I agree: the hat doesn't suit him. The errant curls look like he has something written on his forehead. (He doesn't, I know, but it just looks like that).

The hat looks like a trilby, which should be worn with the brim over your face to protect you from the sun and wind. It's also a 'classic' look - see Humphrey Bogart rocking the look, below:



The slight 'tilt' on the hat also makes you look rakish, mysterious and handsome. ;)

I know some people will say that's a fedora, and indeed Humpy was famous for wearing fedoras. But the above had is definitely a trilby, because the brim is much sharper and permanently fixed downwards. It suits men with narrow shoulders.

A fedora is larger, and has a movable or "snap" brim. It suits men with broader shoulders.

But the brim is actually tipped up, not down.
I think it's a pork-pie hat.

Feegled from Discworld Monthly! :)

2.7 Good Omens 2 Casting news.
They started filming Good Omens 2 back in October up in the wilds of Scotland.

Filming will take place up until April.

Today's Casting announcement!

Derek Jacobi will reprise his role as Metatron

Also returning are Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Niamh Walsh

Added to the casting line-up are Sian Phillips, Tim Downie , Pete Firman, Andi Osho and Alex Norton. Who they play we do not know (and I practically begged Pete Firman to tell me - Rachel) , but it will be fun to find out!


My reaction?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen: It'd be wonderful to see Derek and Sian back on the screen again. :) I first watched them together on "I, Claudius" - they work beautifully together. ;)

They just announced that filming has wrapped. So now it's post-production for at least six months, would be my guess. No release date for Amazon Prime announced as yet. As Neil Gaiman says... wait and see.
