AMC’s Preacher Season 1 premieres this upcoming Sunday, May 22, 2016, at 10:00 pm EST. To tide you over until then here is a massive Preacher photo gallery of 20 new pictures. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon created the comic book series and Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin are bringing it to life on AMC. The characters all look as expected, and we are going to love this new TV series!
Hugo Root (W. Earl Brown): Root’s the nasty local sheriff who, in the comics, has a life-changing encounter with Jesse Custer, leading Root to a shocking act of self-violence.
Eugene Root (Ian Colletti): He’s Sheriff Root’s abused son, and he’s more commonly known by his nickname, "Arseface," after he was disfigured when he shot himself in the face in an attempt to mimic his idol Kurt Cobain’s suicide.
Emily Woodrow (Lucy Griffiths): She’s sort of the Preacher version of Daryl Dixon, in that Emily is a character created just for the TV series. She’s a single mom who works as a waitress, bookkeeper, and church organist, and she has a bit of a crush on Jesse.
Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga): Jesse’s ex-girlfriend and current love interest, who, raised by her father, has serious gun skills.
Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun): Why’s that dude holding an umbrella? He’s Jesse’s BFF, and he’s a heavy-drinking Irish vampire.
Donny Schenck (Derek Wilson): Donny’s a Civil War re-enactor who learns how much Jesse hates bullies when Jesse finds out Donny beats his wife.
DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef): an angel who’s been tasked with keeping his eye on Genesis, and who will reveal some very key facts about Genesis to Jesse.
Fiore (Tom Brooke): DeBlanc’s partner, also an angel on the Genesis beat.
