AMC’s Preacher has added Jackie Earle Haley as Odin Quincannon, one of the comic’s most twisted villains.
The report at i09 describes Odin, via the AMC Press Release, as a “’small, decrepit man with the unscrupulous iron will necessary to be the most powerful man in Annville County, Texas’ who, like his comic book counterpart, runs the slaughterhouse in Salvation.” If anyone can do small and decrepit, it’s Jackie Earle Haley.
Odin Quincannon is easily the most disturbed of the villains in Preacher, and asking him in the first season of the show also hints that storylines will be shuffled around a bit. Odin didn’t appear until later in the series. He also was a little disturbed when it came to meat lying around his slaughterhouse, but the less said about any spoilers of his character (for people who never read the comics) the better.
Preacher doesn’t have an official release date yet, but expect it at the end of 2016 some time.
