AMC has found Preacher's resident blood-sucker.
Deadline reports that AMC has cast British actor Joseph Gilgun for their television adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic series Preacher in the role of Cassidy. Gilgun recently started in This Is England, and has a role in Vin Diesel's upcoming movie The Last Witchhunter.
Preacher is being developed by Sony Television and AMC Studios, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg spear-heading the project. Gilgun joins the previously cast Ruth Negga as Tulip and Ian Colletti as Arseface; the titular star, Jesse Custer, has yet to be cast.
