Yesterday, it was officially confirmed by producer and pilot co-director Seth Rogen that Dominic Cooper had finally secured the lead role as Jesse Custer in AMC's upcoming comic book adaptation series Preacher. Now we have news that Weeds alum Elizabeth Perkins has signed on for a co-starring role opposite Cooper. Perkins is set to star as Vyla Quinncannon. She is a genteel but formidable businesswoman and owner of the local slaughterhouse in Annville. She is described as ambitious, strong-willed and terrifying. It will be revealed that Vyla shares a past with Jesse's father, which gives her a singular hold over Jesse.
Preacher, which is co-executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, is based on the popular cult 90s comic book of the same name. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are directing the pilot episode from a script written by Sam Catlin. The series will follow a Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) who somehow merges with a creature who has escaped from heaven, and goes on a journey to literally find God, who has abandoned his place in Heaven.Read More
After more than a month of negotiations, Dominic Cooper has finally been confirmed to play Jesse Custer on AMC's upcoming series Preacher. Executive producer Seth Rogen confirmed the news on his Twitter page earlier this morning. The actor most recently starred in a recurring role on ABC's Marvel's Agent Carter as Howard Stark, but it isn't known if that show will be renewed for a second season.
The show is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic book of the same name, following a Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). He somehow merges with a creature who has escaped from heaven, and goes on a journey to literally find God, who has abandoned his place in Heaven. Jesse is joined on this journey by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). Other confirmed cast members include Lucy Griffiths as Emily and Ian Colletti as Eugene Root, aka Arseface.Read More
After languishing in development for several years as a feature film adaptation, AMC announced last February that it was developing a Preacher TV series with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The show was given a pilot order back in December, but we haven't heard much about the project since then. The Tracking Board reports that Marvel's Agent Carter star Dominic Cooper is the front runner to take the lead role of Jesse Custer.
Based on the hit comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith. He has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is one of the most iconic bad guys in print - an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers - a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.Read More
