In some rather awesome news, Joe Gilgun has landed one of the main roles in AMC’s PREACHER series. Gilgun, of course, is best known for MISFITS and for the role of Woody in the THIS IS ENGLAND series.
Deadline is reporting the news that Gilgun will play Cassidy. The basic premise of PREACHER sees Custer, a preacher who’s losing his faith, merge with an entity called Genesis. Custer, accompanied by Irish vampire Cassidy amongst others, sets out across country to hunt down God and find out why he abandoned his duties.
Gilgun is a near-perfect fit for the Cassidy role and is always hugely enjoyable in pretty much everything he does. He joins a cast that already includes Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare and Ian Colletti as Arseface.
The lead role of Jessie Custer is still to be cast.
