We’ve had several behind-the-scenes glimpses into the production of AMC’s small screen take on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s controversial comic series, Preacher, but this is our first proper look at some of the principal cast members, namely Joseph Gilgun and Ian Colleti, in wardrobe as their characters.
Gilgun (This Is England, Misfits, Pride) will play hard drinking Irish Vampire, Cassidy, and he does bear quite a resemblance to his comic book counterpart – minus his trademark sunglasses, that is. Colleti (Baby Mama, Rake), on the other hand, is Arseface: a troubled teen who attempts to commit suicide with a shotgun blast to the face. Somehow, he survives, but winds up with a mush that looks like… well, you caught his name, right?
Production on Preacher continues as the show marches ahead for its 2016 premiere. It will star Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare, Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon and Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson as Betsy and Donny Schenck, respectively.
