Preacher Nabs a Saint
More casting news is here for AMC’s upcoming series “Preacher” as Deadline is reporting that British actor Tom Brooke has landed a series regular role in the tale based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic. Brooke will play Fiore. In the books he is one of the two Adephi angels sent to Earth to retrieve Genesis.
The project, from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Sony TV, and AMC Studios, centers on Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), 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 (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
