AMC hires Ruth Negga to play Preacher’s Tulip


It was reported before that AMC was going to cast Tulip O’Hare, originally a white character, as a black character in the upcoming Preacher series based on the comic by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon. I’m pretty sure the purists out there will have some issue with this news. According to Deadline, Ruth Negga (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will be playing Tulip, the ex-girlfriend of Reverend Jesse Custer who has a secret past.

Jesse is possessed by Genesis, a creature conceived by an angel and demon that gives him great powers. Now he’s on a journey to find God with the help from Tulip and Cassidy, an Irish vampire.

Pineapple Express‘ Rogen and Goldberg are developing the show along with Breaking Bad‘s Sam Catlin.
