The man we now know as Jesse Custer has become a household name across the globe since AMC’s adaptation of the wildly popular comic book series Preacher hit small screens earlier this year, but the fame game has been a long time coming for 38-year-old Dominic Cooper.

Cooper has worked the entertainment circuit since 2001, launching on the British scene via a TV movie called The Gentleman Thief and finally landing the lead role as Preacher in the twisted Sunday night staple 15 years later. And, with another lead performance on the way opposite Harry Potter’s Tom Felton and Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) in Stratton there’s no time like the present to learn all there is to know about this lovely Londoner.

1. James Corden was once his roomie!

The pair, who starred together in The History Boys, lived the highlife in an apartment that — as Cooper explains on The Late Show — only had one two-seater sofa, one bed and one piece of cutlery: a spatula.

However, a little digging within a 2011 interview with the Telegraph shows they neglected to mention one other item present in the cozy home they shared:

“I’ve got a fantastic picture of James naked except for a football boot. Actually, he used to wake me up like that.”

Now that’s an image I didn’t need.

The Dominic Cooper Q&A was one that I was looking forward to all weekend for Comicpalooza 2016. I’ve been a fan of Cooper’s since I first saw him as young Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger. Since then, I’ve been following him as he tackled the roles of Ian Fleming, Howard Stark (again), and, more recently, Jesse Custer.

It’s fitting that Cooper would be at a Con in Texas since Preacher is set in Texas.

Nevertheless, I was super excited for this Q&A. As one of my friends put it, Cooper is just “redonkulously” charismatic.

The Q&A itself was more conversational in tone with the moderator asking Cooper about the weather in England and Houston’s recent spell of rain. Cooper did confirm that it does, in fact and unsurprisingly, rain a lot in England.

The panel, for real, started off with a question about Cooper’s background. He talked about his college years at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. His love for the theatre, however, came from some really good secondary teachers. In Cooper’s own words, he was a “terrible, badly behaved” kid at school. The only thing that he liked about it was the excellent drama department where he was first really exposed to theatre and film.

The National will celebrate its half-century with a gala performance on November 2 that includes scenes from iconic productions such as The History Boys, The Beaux’ Stratagem, No Man’s Land and Pravda.

Judi Dench is to revive a key scene from her towering performance as Shakespeare’s Cleopatra in a glittering celebration to mark the National Theatre’s 50th birthday.

Dame Judi, who appeared in Antony and Cleopatra in 1987, will recite the elegy to Antony as part of a series of extracts from some of the landmark plays and performances since the theatre opened in 1963.

Maggie Smith will reprise her role as Mrs Sullen in George Farquhar’s comedy The Beaux’ Stratagem, Simon Russell Beale will return to Hamlet, while Michael Gambon and Derek Jacobi will take parts created by John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land in the two-hour show.

The National’s outgoing director Nicholas Hytner revealed he is even hoping for a reunion of The History Boys. “I don’t think we will get them all because they are unbelievably busy and successful. But I know that James Corden and Dominic Cooper will move heaven and earth.”
Actors, directors, writers and designers who have worked at the National will be in the invitation-only audience for the gala on November 2 but the show will be broadcast live on BBC2 and internationally.
