What Do You Think of the New Preacher Photo?
TV adaptations of comic books are big business right now, with a variety of series currently running that are either inspired by or a direct adaptation of various series, from The Walking Dead, Arrow, The Flash to Jessica Jones, Gotham and Daredevil. Well now there is another long-awaited adaptation of a popular comic book, Preacher. The show, starring Dominic Cooper as the protagonist Jesse Custer is slated to premiere on Sunday, May 22 at 10pm ET/PT on AMC. The premise of the show is as follows:
‘Preacher’ is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. A tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, Jesse has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned his responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down and is demanding answers, making Him answer for his dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. During their quest, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.”
During the Preacher WonderCon Panel, a new photo of the show’s character Eugene, aka Arseface (played by Ian Colletti) was released. Eugene used to be bullied when he was younger, so he attempted suicide, inspired by his idol Kurt Cobain. He put a shotgun under his chin, however, he only managed only to disfigure his face severely, thus gaining the nickname of Arseface (his face resembling an ass). He will join the protagonist in his search for God, wishing to get forgiveness for what he has tried to do.
