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…
