Preacher is the next comic book television show gracing our screens. Taking its first breaths on May 22 on AMC, the show follows the story of Jesse Custer, a preacher who is inhabited by a strange entity that gives him unusual power. Set in West Texas, Jesse, who is played by Captain America/Agent Carter alum Dominic Cooper, is joined by fellow Marvel actor Ruth Nega, who plays his ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare. The trio is made with the character Cassidy, an Irish vagabond played by Joseph Gilgun.
The show was developed by Seth Rogen (yes, that Seth Rogen) and Evan Goldberg (Breaking Bad).
