AMC have already announced that the new series of Preacher will premiere Sunday, May 22nd at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT following the mid-season finale of “Fear the Walking Dead.” An encore presentation of the pilot episode will air the following Sunday, May 29th with back-to-back airings beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT providing new viewers multiple opportunities to catch up during the holiday weekend. New episodes will resume on Sunday, June 5th at the series regular time of 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

“Preacher” is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore,Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.

Preacher, which is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s popular ’90’s comic book series of the same name, is a Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production. The ten-episode season was developed for television by executive producers Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Superbad, Neighbors) and executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”).

AMC have released the first official images of Ian Colletti as Arseface. While I am really looking forward to the show, and it seems to be getting some great reviews, I can’t help feel that this version of Arseface isn’t quite ugly enough. Ha, who would have thought I would ever be complaining about that!

Check it out below and let me know what you think.

Here is a description of the comic book version of the character:

Arseface is a boy who, having grown up in an abusive household, attempts to kill himself after trying to emulate his hero, Kurt Cobain. He received his own single-issue comic book, Preacher: The Story of You-Know-Who. His father is a severe redneck racist who often beats him for trivial reasons. Arseface and his friend “Pube” are regarded as outcasts because of their idol worship of Kurt Cobain, and because Arseface is a sheriff’s son; thus the two become the target of bullying tactics. After a severe beating by his father, and learning of Cobain’s suicide, Arseface makes a suicide pact with Pube. Pube puts a shotgun in his mouth and successfully kills himself, while Arseface places the shotgun under his chin, which severely deforms his face instead of killing him. After being confronted in the hospital by Pube’s grief-stricken sister, the boy has an epiphany and resolves to change his outlook on life and try to be more positive. However, his suicide attempt prompted his long-suffering mother to abandon her abusive husband, leaving him an insulting goodbye note. This causes the boy’s father to begin completely ignoring his son, refusing to acknowledge him or speak to him. The boy, maintaining his new upbeat attitude, continues to enthusiastically converse with his father despite never getting a reply. – Wiki
