Preacher Gets His Sidekick, Cassidy

March 25th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



The AMC take on the comic book Preacher just got another key piece of their roster.

Cassidy, the Irish-vampire who is sidekick to lead Jesse Custer will be played by Joseph Gilgun.

“Jesse’s sidekick Cassidy is described as the most wild-ass, bestest “bro” you’d ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead but no one’s more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy. An incorrigible mischief-maker, Cassidy’s up for anything — joyriding, bungee-jumping, bank robbing, peyote dropping. He’s also a relentless conversationalist with opinions on everything from religion to politics to pop culture to theories on why people are better able to tolerate the odor of their own flatulence.”

Also, it’s been said by Deadline that Dominic Cooper is still being eyed for the role of Reverend Jesse Custer.
