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 »
Sure, sure, Jimmy Fallon and Jonah Hill pull an Oprah and give everybody in the audience a panda, but that's not the most important takeaway here. After watching this and seeing all the amazing Jonah faces that are possible, it should be seen as a travesty that the only Jonah Hill apps available in the App Store are the Get Him to the Greek and Superbad ones. Does this mean Jonah should fix that and think about making his very own Jonoji app? Probably. At least that way he (or you) could regularly share really expressive faces for really special scenarios.When your Bff Leo tells you to close your eyes and imagine how big the Academy Award for Best Actor is Irl, for example: Or when you rewatch that underrated bear bit you did with Channing Tatum at the Golden Globes: When someone says maybe Leo won't win that Oscar, »

First hatched in 2012, the dramedy appeared to bring together all then necessary ingredients for a sure-fire hit, chiefly former Community star Alison Brie and a Bryan Cranston who was still considered the apex predator of Albuquerque at the time. But then, Get a Job was ordered to the shelf where it’s remained ever since, a fate that even led Kendrick to question whether the film would ever see a release.
Now, out of the blue, CBS Films and Lionsgate Premiere has whipped Dylan Kidd’s picture into shape, premiering the first trailer and poster ahead of a limited theaterical release next month. Also starring Superbad alum Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, John Cho, John C. McGinley, Nicholas Braun, »

Centering on a band of wayward explorers lost in space, the pitch comes by way of Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street, Grudge Match), who is poised to make his directorial debut with the space-set comedy. Rogen will have a hand in producing The Something under his Point Grey Pictures banner, while Universal will handle distribution now that the project has been greenlit.
Cast astray in the inky blackness of space, Rothman’s feature will find Rogen, Hader and Galifianakis’ astronauts marooned among the stars for years, until they happen across another ship. But Event Horizon this is not, and given that the writer-director has cast such an impressive trio, it’s little wonder why Universal acted quickly to issue the go-ahead. It marks something of a reunion for Rogen and Hader, »

The movie tells the story of a team of astronauts who encounter another ship after being stuck in space for several years. The Something was written by Rodney Rothman, who penned 22 Jump Street and Grudge Match, and will also make his directorial debut with the film.
22 Jump Street writer Rodney Rothman has gathered an impressive cast for his directorial debut, a space comedy entitled The Something, which has been in the works for quite some time. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader have all been set to star. While it isn't known when production will get under way, it seems this project is finally coming together.
We first reported on The Something way back in February 2010, when Universal Pictures preemptively picked up Rodney Rothman's pitch. At the time, the project was described as an ensemble horror/comedy hybrid set in deep space, which was being compared to Zombieland. The story centers on a crew of male astronauts who have been stranded in outer space for years, when they finally come across another ship. Deadline adds that both of these crews hate each other, but they have to find a way to work together. »
Jesse Custer's bringing his vengeful rage to SXSW 2016, as AMC's Preacher series will have its world premiere at the festival ahead of the first episode's mid-2016 TV debut.
Along with five other titles, SXSW announced today that the debut episode of Preacher has been added to its 2016 lineup. The announcement was accompanied by a new photo from the series (shown above and below).
Specific screening details of Preacher are not yet known. SXSW 2016 will take place March 11th–19th in Austin, TX. The first of ten one-hour episodes of Preacher is expected to air on AMC around the middle of this year, meaning that SXSW attendees will have the opportunity to see Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's cult comic book series come to life onscreen before before it airs in living rooms nationwide.
