AMC’s Preacher chooses Ian Colletti to be Arseface


It was reported yesterday that Ruth Negga (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD) was going to play Tulip in the upcoming Preacher series on AMC. Now we have news from Deadline that Arseface has been cast.

Ian Colletti (Rake) will be playing Eugene Root, aka Aresface. The character’s face has been deformed due to a shotgun blast to the face. The good news is that he survived. The bad news is that his friend didn’t. Don’t be deceived by his look, since he’s still a nice young person underneath the face.

Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, and has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned his responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making him answer for his dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is one of the most iconic bad guys in print – an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers —a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.

The series is expected to have a 2016 premiere date.
