Preacher Star

Update: Seth Rogen has officially confirmed Dominic Cooper will play Jesse Custer in Preacher.

Original story follows.

An English actor will play a Texas preacher who gains incredible power in AMC’s series Preacher. After being floated as a likely lead for the series some weeks ago, Dominic Cooper is finally in the process of making a deal to play Jesse Custer, “a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is able to influence people after after he merges with a heavenly creature.”

That’s a nice way of saying that Custer sort of merges with Genesis, the offspring of an angel and a demon, which gives him power that may rival that of God. Or that’s how it is in the comics, anyway; sounds like there will be a few changes made here and there as Preacher becomes a TV show.
