Good god, I sound like Rita Skeeter.
A tantalizing rumor has cropped up that Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly funny Good Omens may be getting the BBC Radio Play treatment ala Neverwhere. After the successful release of the awesome Neverwhere radio play (featuring James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer and that loveable scamp Benedict Cumberbatch), Gaiman said he'd love to work again with the people that made it happen. He and the beloved Terry Pratchett were seen recently with Dirk Maggs, the man who brought Neverwhere to life for BBC Radio.
When asked during a random Twitter Q&A if more BBC radio plays would be produced, Gaiman cryptically answered "I mean, the omens are good...". DONE, THIS IS HAPPENING, GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME!
I mean, the omens are good.. . RT @HokusBloke: would you like to collaborate more with the marvellous @DirkMaggs on audio projects?

So this this news is true and the Good Omens radio play actually does exist, who would you cast in it? I'm throwing my complete and utter support behind Tom Hiddleston as Crowley the demon. I wonder how they'll cast Death? Who could speak in his iconic CAPITAL LETTERS?
Could anyone explain exactly what @neilhimself @DirkMaggs and Terry are doing...? pic.twitter.com/E7dDcTAA4K
