AMC’s Preacher: Rogen Gives A First Look at Arseface

Seth Rogen went to Twitter again to with a set photo from AMC’s Preacher. The photo is dark but you can see Dominic Cooper talking with Ian Colletti.

Colletti plays Arseface, in the comics he is given this name after self-inflicted facial shotgun injury trying to commit suicide after Kurt Cobain’s death. Owen Williams from Empire pointed out the Jack White poster, so we might get a different origin.

AMC’s Preacher is an adaptation of the comic book series on the same name created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.

Preacher is one of the most celebrated graphic novels of all time, the story of a man of God in a small Texas town who sets out to avenge the decimation of his hometown by supernatural forces.

According to the potential plot of the show “revolves around Jesse Custer, a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a powerful creature that has escaped from heaven. Along with his ex-gal, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God”.

Seth Rogen will work as a feature writer on Preacher, and will certainly have input along the way in various aspects. AMC’s Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Jesse’s Irish vampire best friend Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Jesse’s girlfriend Tulip O’Hare, Ian Colletti as Arseface, and W. Earl Brown as Arseface’s father Sheriff Hugo Root. There is no firm day for when Preacher will hit the airwaves, but we do know 2016 will be the year.
