Seth Rogen recently hinted on Twitter that the title role had been cast on his and Evan Goldberg’s upcoming AMC series adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s acclaimed comic book series Preacher, the talent in question remains a mystery – although rumours insist that it is Dominic Cooper.
The Hollywood Reporter does have an update on the series, however, bringing word that Lucy Griffiths(Sugar Rush, Robin Hood, True Blood, Nazi Boots, Constantine) has signed on to play a character named Emily Woodrow, who seems to be an original character created specifically for the series. She has been described in teh casting notes as:
“a no-nonsense single mother of three. Emily’s a waitress, the church organist, bookkeeper and Jesse’s loyal right hand. Stoic and strong, wise beyond her years, she can’t help but have a little thing for Preacher Jesse.”
Griffiths joins Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip and Ian Colletti as Arseface.
