AMC has found its Preacher, and it is Dominic Cooper.
Cooper, who was earlier rumored for the role, is named to play Jesse Custer by co-producer Seth Rogen.
"We have Jesse Custer!" Rogen tweeted. "[Dominic Copper] is gonna save our souls.
The Preacher TV series is based on the DC Comics Vertigo comic book of the same name. Cooper is known for portraying Tony Stark's father, Howard Stark, for Marvel.
Preacher centers around 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 (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God. Ian Colletiti has also been cast as Arseface.
