Not content to ride the success of The Walking Dead, AMC is bringing PREACHER to the small screen in May. Written by Garth Ennis and drawn (mostly) by Steve Dillon PREACHER is one of the most controversial comics in history. Needless to say that this is going to be crazy.

Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
