Smith Jerrod aka Jason Lewis is back, and this time he's an immortal angel with the best lob we've ever seen.

Another day, another epic TV series giving us an excuse to fill the Love Island gap with more boxsets instead of doing actual life things like exercising/cooking this week's lunches/reading real life books (delete as appropriate).

This time the addictive series in question is NBC's latest American Gods-esque offering, Midnight, Texas.

Based on the novel Midnight Crossroad, written by the woman behind True Blood, author Charlaine Harris, Midnight, Texas is that tale as old as time story about a group of misfits banding together conveniently in one tiny American town, except this time there's psychics, witches and talking cats...

Think Buffy's hell mouth meets Preacher's small town American religious weirdness and you're on the right lines.

Sounds like good solid boxset bingeing to us.

But wait, it gets better.

Nabbing a starring role as Joe Strong (an immortal angel with a husband who's also an angel no less) is SATC's all round dream of a man Smith Jerrod, or Jason Lewis as he likes to be called IRL.

Yup, the man with the best beach waves on TV has returned to our tv screens as a gay angel, and we're so on board.

According to NBC, Lewis' character is, 'an angel who has been on Earth for millennia. He lives in hiding with his husband, Chuy, and watches for the arrival of the One who can save Midnight from the great evil that threatens humanity.'

So. Epic.

Never realized how much I always wanted to be a tarot card… 'til I was one😉💪🏼😇

Ever since we rediscovered Lewis via Instagram, we've been a little bit obsessed with his love for the outdoors, passion for all terrifying sports and general ruggedness.

Add to that wings and a tortured soul and Smith Jerrod just hit peak fictional man goals.
