Michael James Shaw has been cast as Papa Midnite in NBC's Constantine, according to USA Today.
Papa Midnite is the voodoo king of New Orleans and a longtime adversary of John Constantine, played by Matt Ryan in the television series. Midnite had a presence in both Hellblazer and Constantine. The report suggests that Midnite and Constantine may find themselves uneasy allies as the threat of malevolent forces grows throughout the series.
Shaw's most recent work was in the film Don-O-Mite.
Constantine's cast also includes Harold Perrineau, Charles Halford and Angélica Celaya.
Constantine will premiere October 24 on NBC.
