AMC’s Preacher Gets Its Cassidy

I still want to know who will play Bill Hicks.

Deadline reported Tuesday that admitted British person, Joseph Gilgun (This Is England, Misfits) has been cast as Cassidy in AMC’s production of Preacher, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 90’s cult comic. Produced by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, Preacher is:

…about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.

And what about Cassidy?

Cassidy is described as the most wild-ass, bestest “bro” you’d ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead but no one’s more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy. An incorrigible mischief-maker, Cassidy’s up for anything — joyriding, bungee-jumping, bank robbing, peyote dropping. He’s also a relentless conversationalist with opinions on everything from religion to politics to pop culture to theories on why people are better able to tolerate the odor of their own flatulence.

Did that paragraph have the word “bro” in it while describing Cassidy?

In case you missed some of the earlier news:

In addition to Negga, Gilgun joins Ian Colletti who was cast as Eugene Root, aka Arseface. Dominic Cooper has been in conversations for the lead, Jesse.

No announcement has been made yet regarding filming let alone a premier date.

About the Author - GHERU


RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
