John Constantine is just a guy fighting his demons. In his case however, those demons fight back.

“He is a master of the dark arts and the occult and has extensive knowledge. He’s not a super hero. He’s kind of a working class, anti hero,” says actor Matt Ryan, who plays the DC Comics character.

Constantine has been a staple in DC comics for 25 years and is finally making the leap to TV.

“It’s awesome. He’s such an iconic character and there’s so much amazing source material,” Ryan said.

“Constantine” premieres Friday at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m. CST on NBC. Will you be watching?
