Ewan McGregor is a good choice, I'm not too sure about Keifer Sutherland though. 
 
What about James Marsters taking his stride from his Spike (Buffy) persona?

Jim Sturgess  (:
He did a really good Liverpool accent in Across the Universe
& he's a top notch actor.

@Constantine:  Your probably right, I'm not too familiar with the character. :/ I just chose the first person who was a little scruffy and could do a  Scouse accent. lol

I like the idea of Ewan McGregor,  I think he'd pull it off rather smoothly.

Marsters has my vote.

I think his accent would be the hardest part to pull off. He's from liverpool but moved to london at 16, so it would change his accent, be a mix of the two.

But looks wise, Daneil Craig already looks like the older Hellblazer's John. Couldn't think of anyone who'd pull off the new younger Constantine...

Charlie Hunnam definitely hes great in sons of anarchy and green street hooligans plus i would like Constantine to be depicted a bit younger and he already has accent and i think he would play the part well

@ondskapt666:

Wasn't Kiefer Sutherland Big Boss? I don't think he even sounds like how you would think Constantine would sound.

I'm sure he can practice a good voice.
