Seth Rogen Shares Another Preacher Image

21 May 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

So what have we here then? Until Rogen gives us something else to go us, your guess is as good as mine... but it certainly appears to be a couple of slightly sinister looking nuns outside a church. Is this where the Reverend Jesse Custer preaches to his doomed congregation before his fateful meeting with Genesis? Only time will tell. We also have an unofficial set pic, giving us our first proper look at Dominic Cooper as Custer. #Preacher pic.twitter.com/OlKTKVlfhj — Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) May 22, 2015   Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip O'Hare, Joe Gilgun as Cassidy, Ian Colletti as Arseface, Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon and Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson as Betsy and Donny Schenck.We still don't know who'll play the Saint Of Killers, but he's definitely in the show....right? »

First Look at AMC's 'Preacher' Starring Dominic Cooper

14 May 2015 6:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that production is under way on Preacher, AMC's upcoming TV series based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic, executive producer Seth Rogen has shared a new photo from the set, featuring Dominic Cooper as the Preacher Jesse Custer and Ian Colletti as Arseface. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't give us too good a look at each character, but it appears that Custer is speaking with young Arseface in his room, which is adorned with posters for Jack White and other bands. Sports fans will also notice the University of Texas Longhorns pillow on his bed.

The series centers on Custer, a small-town Texas preacher who somehow ends up merging with a supernatural entity from heaven, which gives him the power to make anyone do what he says. He goes on a perilous mission to literally find God, after he abandoned his post in heaven. Jesse is accompanied on »

Seth Rogen Teases Start Of Preacher Filming

13 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Filing on the pilot of AMC's Preacher adaptation is apparently underway according to Seth Rogen's Twitter.  Rogen developed the adaptation with Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad's Sam Catlin.  The show will star Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip O'Hare and Joe Gilgun as Cassidy.  Also appearing on the show are Ian Colletti as Arseface, Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon and Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson as Betsy and Donny Schenck. The new AMC series will mark the first successful adaptation of Preacher in a long line of failures. Garth Ennis wrote a script for a film adaptation back in 1998 but financial concerns and religious pressure put a halt on development. Miramax then purchased film rights for Preacher but never developed a working script and ultimately let the rights lapse. Next up, was HBO, who secured rights and brought in »

AMC's 'Preacher' Series Adds Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson

6 May 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

AMC's upcoming comic book TV series Preacher has added two more cast members, Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson, as brand new characters who didn't appear in the original comic books. Jamie Anne Allman is playing Betsy Schenck, a timid wife who appears to be in an abusive relationship with her husband, Donny (Derek Wilson). Although, when Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) checks in on her, she tells a different story.

Derek Wilson's Donny Schenck is a Civil War reenactor and abusive husband who gets into several altercations with Custer, but still makes it to church every Sunday. Both actors will have recurring roles in the AMC series, but it isn't known how many episodes they have signed on for. Preacher is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's 1990s comic book series, which follows Jesse Custer, a small-town Texas preacher, who ends up merging with a heavenly entity »

AMC’s upcoming Preacher pilot continues to round out its cast, with Deadline reporting that W.

Jesse Custer, a conflicted preacher who finds himself bonded to a supernatural creature called Genesis and sets out on a journey to find God.

W. Earl Brown Joins Preacher As Sheriff Hugo Root

22 April 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC’s next comic book adaptation is quickly assembling a solid cast. News of the latest addition to Preacher hails from Deadline, who report that W. Earl Brown (Deadwood, Scream) has signed on to appear as one of the titular chappie’s most reviled enemies.

Known in the comics as Jesse Custer’s biggest adversary, Sheriff Hugo Root comes to fisticuffs with the preacher on more than one occasion, even roping in his son Eugene Root (aka Arseface) into his agenda of hate. While it’s his grisly fate that spurs his bumbling son into action, his earlier run-ins with Custer ought to be granted a substantial chunk of screentime.

In the initial rundown from Deadline, his character description suggests he may undergo somewhat of a transformation from page to screen. He’s dubbed “a flinty-eyed, conspiracy-credulous redneck who is not a fool,” which sounds about right, but he also “has a vulnerability to him. »

Deadwood's W. Earl Brown Joins Preacher As 'Sheriff Hugo Root'

22 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

W. Earl Brown (who played the formidable Dan Dority on HBO's western drama Deadwood) has joined the expanding cast of AMC's Preacher. He'll be playing Sheriff Root, who in the Vertigo comic series was just about the most vile piece of garbage you'd ever be unfortunate enough to meet. It sounds like they might be giving him a bit more humanity in the show though, as this is how Deadline describes the character: "The mean-hearted father of Eugene Root aka Arseface (Ian Colletti), a flinty-eyed, conspiracy-credulous redneck who is not a fool and has a vulnerability to him." Brown joins Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Joe Gilgun as Cassidy, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, Ian Colletti as Arseface, and Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon. »

Elizabeth Perkins Boards AMC’s Preacher; Creator Garth Ennis Talks Comic Loyalty

20 April 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

AMC’s Preacher is stepping up its game. Following months of speculation, which were likely part of a lengthy negotiation process, Dominic Cooper officially signed on last week to headline the series. In the role of preacher Jesse Custer, Cooper will lead his best friend, an Irish vampire, and his ex-girlfriend, a badass called Tulip across the Us to hunt down God. And no trek would be complete without loads of nasties along the way. While we already know Arseface is set to make an appearance – and what a delightful one that will be – there’s another newcomer set to make life hell for Jesse.

Elizabeth Perkins, aka the poufy-haired older lady who seduces Tom Hanks in Big, has signed on to star as a character created solely for the TV adaptation. Vyla Quinncannon shares a name with one of the most hideous villains from the source material – the repugnant »

Here's how Deadline describe this latest addition to Preacher: "A genteel but formidable businesswoman who owns the local slaughterhouse in Annville.

Dominic Cooper Will Meet God in Preacher

18 April 2015 1:04 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Rumors about a possible film or television adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult-classic ’90s comic series Preacher have eddied for a while. The gloriously gory, perversely hilarious comic about a small-town preacher named Jesse who merges with a demon-angel entity and gains the ability to control people with his mind has so much black-comedy potential, but the show remained in purgatory for years. Plans began to gestate this past December, when Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, weed smokers par excellence, announced that they were working on a TV pilot for AMC, working off of a script by Breaking Bad scribe Sam Catlin. Now Av Club reports that Dominic Cooper, best known for his portrayal of Tony Stark’s father Howard on Agent Carter and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been tapped to play the lead role. Elizabeth Perkins will join Cooper as Vyla Quinncannon, a woman »
