According to The Hollywood Reporter Lucky Griffith (True Blood, Constantine) has been cast in Preacher as Emily Woodrow, who’s described as a no-nonsense single mother of three. Emily’s a waitress, the church organist, bookkeeper and Jesse’s loyal right hand. Stoic and strong, wise beyond her years, she can’t help but have a little thing for Preacher Jesse.
The lead role of Jesse has yet to be cast, but thus far the cast is rounding up to be pretty impressive, we really liked Griffiths in the Constantine pilot.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is The End, Neighbors, The Interview) are directing and as well as writing along with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) for AMC, meanwhile James Weaver (This is The End, Neighbors, The Interview) will oversee the series.
