AMC’s Preacher has cast another co-lead. British actor Joseph Gilgun (This Is England) has joined the drama pilot based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic. The project, from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, Sony TV and AMC Studios, is about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
In the final ever episode, the gang discover that their community service is over and begin to contemplate life after the orange jumpsuits. Still upset at the way Rudy (Joseph Gilgun) treated her, Jess (Karla Crome) seeks comfort elsewhere; however, she soon discovers that her companion has a terrifying power that threatens her very existence. Meanwhile, Rudy’s alter ego discovers that Helen (Ellie Kendrick), Karen (Kate Bracken) and Sam (Michael Winder) aren’t quite the superheroes he expected them to be.
