For those of us who aren't lucky enough to attend its screening and Q&A at SXSW on Monday, AMC wanted to show off its leading trio for Preacher: Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy.

Directed and developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, this dark, supernatural comic book adaptation follows Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a preacher who is granted a certain set of skills on his search for God:

Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse embarks on a journey to, literally, find God, joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun).

The premise alone had already captured my attention, but these three character stills have me all the more convinced.

Jesse Custer


Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) takes on the lead role as Jesse, a west Texas preacher on a search for God.

Tulip O'Hare


O'Hare, Custer's gun-loving ex-girlfriend, will be played by Ruth Negga (World War Z).



Gilgun (The Last Witch Hunter) will play Custer's best friend Cassidy, who also happens to be an Irish Vampire.

'Preacher' premieres on AMC this year.
