AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Comes Out to Pray in Full Cast Photos
May is nearly upon us, and with it comes the official AMC premiere of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher adaptation. Now, the entire cast steps into the sun (some umbrellas required) for the full cast photos from AMC’s next comic-adapted drama.
AMC released the full cast in a new photo gallery, including the unholy trinity of Jesse Custer, Tulip and Cassidy, but also new looks at Arseface and his father. New to the roster are Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc and Tom Brooke as Fiore.
In addition to Dominic Cooper’s titular role as Jesse Custer, the cast of AMC’s Preacher includes Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Ruth Negga as Tulip, Misfits star Joseph Gilgun as Irish vampire Cassidy, Jackie Earle Haley as Odin Quincannon, Ian Colletti as Eugene “Arseface” Root, W. Earl Brown as Arseface’s father, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon, True Blood vamp Lucy Griffiths, along with Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson as Betsy and Donny Schenck.
For those unfamiliar with the 1990s comic series from Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, AMC’s official description of Preacher reads:
Preacher is about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
The original Preacher had itself been optioned for various adaptations many times over the years, while AMC’s incarnation will deviate from the comic in certain respects. Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) will serve as executive producer and showrunner for the new series, while fellow producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg directed the pilot episode, having written the script with Catlin.
Preacher will officially premiere on May 22, so stay tuned for the latest.
