Watchmen’s Rorschach himself, Jackie Earle Haley, has joined the cast of Preacher and it’s a very exciting role.

Haley will play Odin Quincannon across multiple episodes of the first season, reports AMC.

Quincannon is a “small, decrepit man with the unscrupulous iron will necessary to be the most powerful man in Annville County, Texas” , he runs the slaughterhouse in Salvation and will appear in 6-10 episodes.

“In the books, Quincannon was both an unscrupulous, power-hungry businessman as well as a vile racist and active member of the KKK—constantly striking out at Jesse Custer and his allies in an attempt to take control of the town. He also does some, err, pretty lurid things with the meat left lying around in his slaughterhouse that will probably make you consider vegetarianism if they make their way to TV faithfully.”

We’re big fans of Haley here at FTN and look forward to seeing him in this role…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
