As I reported in January, AMC has placed the order for their new series ‘Preacher’, based on the graphic novel by Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon. Ennis will be working along side Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg on the show’s script, which is getting a modern update.

The ’90s comic book series ‘Preacher’ tells the story of a preacher in a small Texas town, who mergers with an entity that has escaped heaven. Preacher has the ability to make anyone do what he commands. Jesse Custer “the preacher” , Tulip O’Hare and Cassidy, a vampire, team up and go on a journey to find God and fight the evil they discover along the way. AMC has announced two cast members so far, Tulip and Arseface.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ actress Ruth Negga has been cast in the role of Tulip O’Hare. In the comics, Tulip is a beautiful woman who’s tough as nails. She also happens to be the girlfriend of the main character, Jesse (Preacher).

The role of Eugene Root (aka Arseface) will be played by Ian Colletti. Arseface is horribly disfigured, with a severe speech impediment. He blew his face off, trying to copy his favorite musician, Curt Cobain. Now he’s the local Frankenstein.

‘True Blood’ actress Lucy Griffiths has joined the cast of ‘Preacher’. Griffiths will play Emily Woodrow. Emily is the second love interest in the adaption.


The roles of  Preacher and  Cassidy have not been announced at this time. AMC also has not announced the shows premier date, but I expect we will see it some time early in 2016.
