Hi everyone, Bryan Here….
We’ve been talking about the ‘Preacher‘ series that is coming to AMC from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for quite some time. Well it looks like they have cast one a fan favorite character for the show, which is Arseface or as his real name reads, Eugene Root. Root got the name Arseface for trying to kill himself with a shotgun to the face, hence the name. However, he is the nicest kid anyone will ever meet, but he has a dark secret that he’s keeping.
And actor Ian Colletti is playing Arseface now, which makes him the second actor cast in the show. The first being Ruth Negga as Tulip (Jesse Custer’s girlfriend). Colletti hasn’t been in much, but he was on the tv show ‘Rake‘ where Negga has been in a few things, including ‘World War Z‘.
‘Preacher‘ centers on a man named Jesse Custer, who is a whiskey drinking and bank robbing preacher in Texas. He merges with some entity from heaven that gives him the power to make anyone do what he says. He, along with his girlfriend Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three journey to literally find and destroy God.
Below is what Arseface looks like in the comic book and the image below that is what HBO did as a makeup test when they tried to develop the comic book as a series several years ago. What do you think? Can AMC do just as good a job here?
