Dive Into The World of PREACHER With This Host of 20 New Photos
I read Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic series Preacher in college and became a huge fan, so I'm very curious to see how Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) adapt it for AMC on the small screen. Thankfully fans don't have much longer to wait until we get to see the premiere, and now the network has released a big batch of new photos of the actors in costume to tide us over until next month. Check them out below, courtesy of IGN, USA Today, ComicBook, and EW.
Yahoo also added a couple of pics, along with a quick breakdown of all of the characters in that header image above (from left to right):
Hugo Root (W. Earl Brown): Root’s the nasty local sheriff who, in the comics, has a life-changing encounter with Jesse Custer, leading Root to a shocking act of self-violence.
Eugene Root (Ian Colletti): He’s Sheriff Root’s abused son, and he’s more commonly known by his nickname, “Arseface,” after he was disfigured when he shot himself in the face in an attempt to mimic his idol Kurt Cobain’s suicide.
Emily Woodrow (Lucy Griffiths): She’s sort of the Preacher version of Daryl Dixon, in that Emily is a character created just for the TV series. She’s a single mom who works as a waitress, bookkeeper, and church organist, and she has a bit of a crush on Jesse.
Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga): Jesse’s ex-girlfriend and current love interest, who, raised by her father, has serious gun skills.
Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun): Why’s that dude holding an umbrella? He’s Jesse’s BFF, and he’s a heavy-drinking Irish vampire.
Donny Schenck (Derek Wilson): Donny’s a Civil War re-enactor who learns how much Jesse hates bullies when Jesse finds out Donny beats his wife.
DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef): an angel who’s been tasked with keeping his eye on Genesis, and who will reveal some very key facts about Genesis to Jesse.
Fiore (Tom Brooke): DeBlanc’s partner, also an angel on the Genesis beat.
Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
Preacher debuts on Sunday, May 22 at 10pm.
