Five minutes into the first episode of Preacher, Amazon Prime’s new exclusive series from US cable network AMC, the series makes its demented objectives clear.

With a cartoon depiction of a spirit hurtling through space, an exploding African priest, and a brilliantly blasphemous church sign, it immediately sets out its no-holds-barred intentions.

“I haven’t done anything like it, ever,” says star Dominic Cooper, who plays titular preacher Jesse Custer – a conflicted man of faith who finds himself imbued with a supernatural power that sets him on an unconventional path.

“The first time I saw it I was completely mesmerised by the pristine green lawns, blue skies and vastness on a scale I’d never seen.”

Dominic Cooper isn’t talking about a film set – he’s talking about the place that makes film sets: Hollywood, Los Angeles, birthplace of the blockbuster and occasional crusher of dreams.

Not his though. Ten years on since Cooper’s first visit to promote The History Boys, the Londoner’s career has grown exponentially, and with it so have his air miles, as he’s returned again and again to this world, appearing in everything from Marvel films to Mamma Mia.

Now comes his biggest role to date, playing the titular anti-hero in Amazon Prime series Preacher. Adapted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg from a comic book series once deemed unfilmable, Cooper, you’ll be glad to know, makes the role of the demon-slaying drunk his own.

We sat down with the star to ask what lessons he’s learnt in Hollywood so far. Earnest, eloquent and highly entertaining, it’s one hell of an insight.

In episode 2 of “Preacher,” the AMC adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s 1990s comic book, lead character Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is finally enthusiastic about reinvigorating his small Texas ministry. He didn’t see the light or come to some grand spiritual revelation, though. It’s all because he’s been possessed by a celestial force.

It’s not yet clear how powerful Jesse can be, even as he’s able to channel the spirit into commands that people and animals can’t ignore. At first, though, Jesse sees nothing but positives. With this kind of ability to influence the behaviors of others, he begins to use his power for the greater good. Of course, the consequences aren’t so cut and dried.

Jesse also develops a stronger relationship with Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the Irish vampire drifter who’s become a fixture at Jesse’s church and a handyman who isn’t exactly so handy. Cassidy offers a smart-alecky counterpoint to Jesse’s forced piety.

Cooper talked to Speakeasy about Jesse’s spiritual journey, his relationship with Cassidy, and what the actor himself would do if he had Jesse’s powers. An edited excerpt:

He’s currently wowing audiences and critics alike as super powered man of God Jesse Custer in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s adaptation of comic book series Preacher, but Dominic Cooper hasn’t forgotten his original superhero roots.

The British actor first dipped his toe in the comic book universe as Captain America’s Howard Stark (aka Iron Man’s dad), and that’s a role he says he’ll never say no to reprising.

“I’d always love to play Howard”, Cooper tells RadioTimes.com on a sunny Friday morning in London’s Soho. “He’s such a fun character to play and that’s why I didn’t hesitate when I mentioned that there was a TV series being made.”

That TV series, Agent Carter – starring Hayley Atwell as the titular spy – ran for two series before being cancelled, much to the dismay of fans who immediately began petitioning for its return.

“I think it’s great that there are people campaigning and that they want it back” the actor says, “but it’s hard to say or to know whether certain shows have done their time or whether there is more to be said or more to be done.”
While he’s not too sure about the series returning, he is convinced we haven’t seen the last of its characters: “I’m sure those characters will be returning in some form in the future. They’ll be missed and I think that they will be brought back somehow.”

Dominic Cooper has revealed he landed his role in his new TV series after picking up a script he found at a friend’s house.

Cooper, 38, plays a small-town minister in comic book adaptation Preacher, while Ruth Negga, his partner of seven years, plays his gun-toting ex.

The pair team up with an Irish vampire played by Joseph Gilgun in the series, developed by actor and writer Seth Rogen.

He said: “During pilot season, when there are so many scripts flying around, there was this one script that had been mentioned a lot called Preacher.

“I saw it on the table in someone’s house and I stole it. I read it really quickly and put it back. I absolutely loved it. I knew nothing of the comics.

“But then I got hold of one … it was incredible. Crazed lunatic characters and mad storylines.” When pressed on whose house the script was in, he would only say it was “someone else who is in the cast”.

Cooper and Negga are fiercely private about their relationship. He said: “I remember reading some of the scenes with Ruth and you just couldn’t imagine anyone else playing her part.”

He had a modest upbringing in Greenwich and urged youngsters not to be put off by the financial barriers to the acting profession.

Cooper added: “Sometimes the acting world can sound elitist. But I got funding through Lewisham council, the Lottery and various foundations — there are ways to do it and you mustn’t be put off by the financial risk.”

Preacher is available on Amazon Prime Video.
