Hot on the heels of confirmation that Dominic Cooper will play the title character comes this fun addition: W.

He’s the mean-eyed father of Eugene Root, better known as Arseface. What we know about Preacher‘s Sheriff Root is below. Read More »
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.

The producers of AMC’s Preacher pilot seemingly haven’t fully locked the actor who’ll play Jesse Custer, the title character, but the rest of the major cast is slowly being shown to the public. Ian Colletti plays the disfigured young man Eugene Root, aka Arseface, while Ruth Negga plays Tulip, the woman whose fierce love for Jesse is matched only by the ferocity she unleashes on anyone who crosses her.
Now the third person in the primary friendship triangle will be played by British actor Joseph Gilgun (This Is England). In this case, “person” is being generous, as Cassidy is a vampire, and a particularly voracious one at that, if not exactly in the traditional blood-drinking sense. (He does that, too.)
