Preacher TV show reveals Arseface!

It was at the WonderCon Preacher panel in Los Angeles that AMC released a first-look photo of the show’s unforgettable character Eugene – aka Arseface (played by Ian Colletti).

Is he as messed up as he should be? No he is not but for a TV show we are hoping it remains effective enough.

Preacher-Jesse-Arseface-cover

In the comic Arseface is a boy who, having grown up in an abusive household, attempts to kill himself after trying to emulate his hero, Kurt Cobain.

He received his own single-issue comic book, Preacher: The Story of You-Know-Who. His father is a severe redneck racist who often beats him for trivial reasons.

Arseface and his friend “Pube” are regarded as outcasts because of their idol worship of Kurt Cobain, and because Arseface is a sheriff’s son; thus the two become the target of bullying tactics. After a severe beating by his father, and learning of Cobain’s suicide, Arseface makes a suicide pact with Pube. Pube puts a shotgun in his mouth and successfully kills himself, while Arseface places the shotgun under his chin, which severely deforms his face instead of killing him.

After being confronted in the hospital by Pube’s grief-stricken sister, the boy has an epiphany and resolves to change his outlook on life and try to be more positive. However, his suicide attempt prompted his long-suffering mother to abandon her abusive husband, leaving him an insulting goodbye note.

This causes the boy’s father to begin completely ignoring his son, refusing to acknowledge him or speak to him. The boy, maintaining his new upbeat attitude, continues to enthusiastically converse with his father despite never getting a reply.

The series will premiere on Sunday, May 22nd 2016 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
