FINALLY, people! It’s official; Dominic Cooper is Jesse Custer in AMC’s adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic. The news was confirmed by Seth Rogen on Twitter just a little while ago…
and it looks like they’re ready to start production. I know more than a few comic readers don’t think there’s any way this series can be pulled off on a non-pay cable network, but I’ve got my fingers crossed Rogen will stay true to his word.
Cooper’s casting rounds out Preacher’s main trio of Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joe Gilgun).
Locations are already being scouted,
and the series is expected to debut on AMC in 2016. I’ve got to step up my reading!
