Jackie Earle Haley has been cast to play white supremacist Odin Quincannon in AMC's upcoming Preacher series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Watchmen alum will reportedly appear in six episodes of the upcoming debut season based on the DC/Vertigo comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
In comic books, Quincannon is the patriarch of a powerful family in Annville County, Texas who runs the local slaughterhouse, Quincannon Meat & Power.
In addition to playing Rorschach in Watchmen, the Oscar-nominated actor also had roles in the short-lived Human Target series as well as Shutter Island, Lincoln, and Dark Shadows.
AMC's Preacher is anticipated to debut sometime in mid-2016.
