Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) has been cast as the female lead in the DC Comics imprint Vertigo, live action adaptation Preacher. The AMC television pilot is being written and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Negga will be playing the lead male character’s [Jesse Custer], former and only true love Tulip.
Tulip is described as a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to build helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.
Preacher doesn’t have a premiere date set as of yet, but once we find out we’ll be sure to report it!
