Just ahead of the series debut at SXSW this month, Preacher producer Seth Rogen shared a few pictures of the stars of the upcoming AMC adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Vertigo series.

I just started reading Preacher finally in an attempt to catch up on all the Vertigo comics I was too poor/too unaware to pick up when I was in high school and college, and I basically love it. There’s a bit of a black comedy edge that I typically wouldn’t go for, but Ennis’ actual storytelling chops are something to behold. Anyway, welcome to 1995, right?
I’m especially fond of how they’ve translated Cassidy to the screen, I think Joseph Gilgun is going to kill it. Ruth Negga and Dominic Cooper look to be pretty suitable as Tulip and Jesse as well.
