AMC is going to be developing a series based on Garth Ennis’ comic series Preacher. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing it. No casting announcements have been made so far. So, time for some fun…
Jesse Custer: if he wasn’t busy with Supernatural, I’d like to see Jensen Ackles in the role. He’s got the seriousness and gravelly voice as well as the comic timing to pull off the character. I’m kind of stumped as to an alternate choice so far, although apparently James Marsden had been connected with an earlier attempt to adapt it as a movie.
Tulip O’Hare: You need a kickass girl who can handle a gun and can also pull off sweet and funny. I’m thinking Jaime Pressly.
Cassidy the vampire: How about Colin Farrel?
The Saint of Killers: I’m not sure how well he can act, but the WWE’s Undertaker is the spitting image of the unkillable killer.
Herr Starr: Mark Strong could pull off this role with ease, I think.
More later, but who would you see in the main roles?
