It looks like Preacher finally has their main cast completed and it seems that main character, Jesse Custer, will be played by Dominic Cooper. This was confirmed in a tweet by Seth Rogen, the writer and executive producer of the show.
Cooper is best known for his role as Howard Stark (Father of Tony Stark) in Captain America:The First Avenger movie and Agent Carter of SHIELD TV show. The rumors of Cooper’s casting had started last week, but we didn’t want to jump the gun until we saw it confirmed.
Preacher is an adult comic produced by Vertigo, written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Steve Dillon. It is the story of a clergyman from Texas who wanders the world with his companions in an attempt to make God return to his job and remove a divine entity from him. Jesse Custer’s companions are his girlfriend Tulip (played by Ruth Negga) and his Irish drinking buddy, who also happens to be a vampire named Cassidy (played by Joseph Gilgun.)
