Preacher Adds Jackie Earle Haley As Odin Quincannon

9 February 2016 12:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though we still haven’t heard a peep about any potential Saint of Killers casting, AMC’s small-screen take on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s controversial comic series, Preacher,  has added a different villain in the form of the loathsome Odin Quincannon, who will be played by Oscar nominated Watchmen actor Jackie Earle Haley.

According to THR, Hayley has booked a six-episode arc on the show, which is being headed up by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. In the comics, Quincannon is the odious owner of the meat factory in the town of Salvation, and pretty much runs the town. He also happens to a member of the Kkk, and has a predilection for, well…. having sex with a giant woman made out of meat. There’s just no subtle way to put that.

From the sounds of the accompanying character description, the show will be relocating him to »

'Preacher' TV Series Gets Jackie Earle Haley as a Meat-Loving Villain

9 February 2016 10:30 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in September, AMC handed out a 10-episode series order for the comic book adaptation Preacher, with executive producer Seth Rogen teasing that the series will debut in May 2016. While he recanted that statement about the premiere date shortly thereafter, the series is set to arrive sometime this year, and today we have word from The Hollywood Reporter that the series has added Jackie Earle Haley to play a major character from the original comic books, Odin Quincannon. The actor has been set for a six-episode arc in the series.

In the original comic book created by Garth Ennis and Steven Dillon, Odin Quincannon is a member of the local Ku Klux Klan branch, who often clashes with lead character Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). Jesse eventually discovers that Odin has been having sex with a mannequin made out of meat. In the series, he's described as a small, decrepit man »

‘Preacher’ Casts Jackie Earle Haley as Meaty Villain Odin Quincannon

9 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Preacher was never going to make it to television without undergoing its fair share of changes. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s blasphemous and brutal comic series is very much a product of the ’90s, a story that gives political correctness a big middle finger being stomping its face in with a steel-toed cowboy boot. It’s […]

Jackie Earle Haley To Play Odin Quincannon on AMC's 'Preacher'

9 February 2016 8:30 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The AMC television network is getting ready to put its series adaptation of the Preacher graphic novels into production. Starring Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), and produced by Evan GoldbergSeth Rogen and Sam Catlin, the series has plenty of positive buzz around it. That buzz should only grow now as news spreads of the latest casting for the show.

Jackie Earle Haley (WatchmenA Nightmare on Elm StreetLittle Children) has just signed on for a six-episode arc on the show, and he'll be playing a character very near and dear to fans of the books: Odin Quincannon. 

Haley has plenty of geek cred amongst comic book fans thanks to his work as Rorschach in Zack Snyder's Watchmen, and his casting seems like a slam dunk for Preacher

Here's how The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news of Haley's casting, describes the series:

Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley Joins Preacher

9 February 2016 6:15 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When Elizabeth Perkins joined the cast of Preacher as a character named Vyla Quinncannon, we thought the vile Odin Quincannon from the comics must have been gender-swapped -  but it seems that's not the case as THR reports that the awesome Jackie Earle Haley has booked a six-episode arc as the notorious villain. This take on Quincannon is described as "a small, decrepit man with the unscrupulous iron will necessary to be the most powerful man in Annville County, Texas. The chief employer in town, Odin runs Quincannon Meat & Power, a 125-year-old family run cattle slaughterhouse business." Sounds about right - though fans of the comic will be all-too aware that he's also a Kkk member, and is fond of having sex with a giant meat-woman. Yeah, seriously. It remains to be seen if we'll get that visual on the show (that's one element I actually hope they disregard), which »

Sundance Breakout The Birth Of A Nation Lands Record Deal At Fox Searchlight

27 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As is so often the case with each passing year, 2016’s Sundance Film Festival ignited a flurry of activity among studios and filmmakers alike, with a number of the major players moving in to acquire the hottest properties in town. And while the likes of Casey Affleck’s Manchester By The Sea and the Ellen Page-starring Tallulah pocketed distribution deals of their own, it was Nate Parker’s boisterous The Birth of a Nation that stole the headlines after securing a lucrative deal with Fox Searchlight to the tune of $17.5 million. That’s the biggest sale in Sundance history, and it didn’t even go to the highest bidder.

Hot on the heels of receiving a standing ovation at the film festival, it’s understood that The Weinstein Company and Netflix had both expressed interest in the feature film – the latter reportedly tabled a $20 million offer – though Parker is »

‘Birth Of A Nation’ sets Sundance record after being bought for $17.5 million

26 January 2016 10:05 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Birth Of A Nation Sundance debut draws bid of up to $20 million. Birth Of A Nation Sundance debut attracts huge bids.

The Birth Of A Nation Sundance debut is quite something as Oscar is already being whispers for a year’s time.

Nate Parker‘s slavery drama The Birth of a Nation has been acquired at the Sundance Film Festival for a record $17.5 million. Fox Searchlight paid the huge amount for the film, which easily beats the previous record which was set by Little Miss Sunshine, which sold for $10.5 million ten years ago.

Comparisons to 12 Years A Slave are being made for the film which The Verge are reporting that Netflix apparently made an offer of $20 million for. The budget of the film is a reported $10 million – so effectively investors are already into profit.

Armie Hammer, Aja Naomi King, Jackie Earle Haley, Penelope Ann Miller, and Gabrielle Union star in the film, »
