We’re incredibly excited to announce that Tulip O’hare and Jesse Custer – also known as Ruth Negga and Dominic Cooper – will be joining the theatre session and answering your questions this weekend. Join them on Saturday 28th May at 4pm in the Platinum Theatre. This is one not to be missed!

MCM London Comic Con is to host a special screening of brand new Amazon Prime exclusive Preacher, showing the first episode of the much-anticipated comic book adaptation on the Saturday of the Excel show.

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s much-celebrated comic book series, Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows the adventures of small-town West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper – Warcraft, Agent Carter), who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power.

Together with his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga – Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, World War Z) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun, This Is England, Misfits), Jesse is thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

Produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg (This Is The End, Superbad, Bad Neighbours) and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad), Preacher debuts on Amazon Prime on 23 May.

Religion is always a complicated topic in our society. Some people have no time for, and some believe its all that matters, and the divide between the two is such that discussions of religion are typically barred from polite conversation.

But when you’re working on a show called Preacher, that conversation becomes unavoidable. That’s especially true when you’re the one doing the preaching, as is the case for Dominic Cooper. We asked him about his character, Jesse Custer’s, relationshp with his faith and his God.
“He has a very complex relationship with God, and what I love about the show, the show never judges anyone’s opinion on it,” Cooper says. “There are two main characters in it who have very different opinions on existence and their beliefs, Cassidy and Jesse. I adore those scenes, and I was always told that, “It will be a repetition, this constant argument that they have with one another. The conversation, the dialog about it.” I think you’re on very dangerous ground when you start to have an opinion about religion in what is essentially a very religious country. It doesn’t judge and it welcomes anyone’s opinion and anyone’s ideas.”

Dominic Cooper didn’t grow up reading comic books, nor did casting agents chase him for TV’s newest comics adaptation.

Instead, the British actor landed the lead role in AMC’s “Preacher” through a bit of happenstance (or call it divine intervention).

“I found a script at one of my friend’s houses and I snuck off with it and read it and really, really liked it,” Cooper, 37, tells The Post. “I thought it was unlike anything I’d read before and was so amazed by the depth of it — and the landscapes and the characterizations — that I wanted to know more about it.”

On tonight’s premiere of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher, we are properly introduced to the struggles of one Jesse Custer. Jesse’s a preacher with a heart of gold, a possible drinking problem, and some mystical force that’s currently taken up residence in him (and given him the power to make anyone do anything he says, if he wants). Jesse’s losing (then finding) his religion while befriending a drunken Irish vampire and attempting to avoid his mercenary ex-girlfriend. Dude’s got a lot of problems; it’s amazing that he drags himself out of the bed every morning, and even wilder that he’s doing it as a man of the cloth.

Jesse spends his days chatting with the boy with the disfigured face during the day, then ending his nights in a jail cell after one epic bar fight with one of the meaner sonofabitches in Annville. In that one particular scene, Jesse shows compassion, humor, and aggression all at once. It’s a tough one to nail properly, but in Dominic Cooper, Seth Rogen and company have found the right man for the pulpit. Rogen himself has said that it was Cooper’s range—which has found him playing young Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and on the Agent Carter series to the insane Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter flick—that sealed the deal on Cooper, and judging by the pilot, we’re going to see him showcase all facets of his acting acumen while being flung through Preacher’s insane ringers of violence, humor, and drama.

We caught up with Dominic Cooper at a recent press stop for the Preacher cast and crew to talk how he manages Jesse Custer’s ticks, why he wishes he’d been into comics as a kid, and where the show could possibly go in a second season.

Hypable caught up with Preacher stars Dominic Cooper and Ruth Negga to get the scoop on how they set about bringing two of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s most unforgettable characters to life.

When AMC’s Preacher finally premieres, fans will get a chance to see what happens when a possessed man of God, his badass ex-girlfriend, and an Irish vampire team up. On the surface, the concept might sound like a great time for those who haven’t read the comics the series is based off of. Those who are familiar with Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s graphic novel however, will know there’s much more to the story than the adventures of a rag-tag trio.

Actress Ruth Negga put it best when we caught up with her back in April: “Preacher isn’t a lesson— it’s a question. It’s a big, fat, f***ing question,” said Negga.

She’s right, by the way. Just like the comics, as viewers move further and further into the series, they’ll discover that it deals heavily with the idea of faith, morality, and much, much, more.

At the forefront of the series is actor Dominic Cooper who brings the titular Preacher to life. Jesse Custer may be a man of God, but like many you’ll meet along the way as Preacher unfolds, you’ll soon realize he’s not as clean cut as his title suggests.

The Preacher and the creature are talking to each other.

Jesse Custer, played by Dominic Cooper, says, “Boring’s not the worst thing a person can be.”

Cassidy, played by Joseph Gilgun, replies, “I think you’re wrong. I think boring’s the worst.”

Same thing with TV shows, right?

Well, one thing you can say about the new TV series Preacher: It certainly isn’t boring.

The question, I guess, is whether you’ll find Preacher’s “not boring” characteristics to be new or numbing.

Debuting Sunday, May 22, on AMC, Preacher is based on a comic-book franchise of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. It was developed for television by executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and executive producer/showrunner Sam Catlin.

“I don’t want to ruin my favourite comic,” said Rogen, who, of course, is best known as an actor. “I am a fan (of Preacher). I love the comic book. I don’t want to lose anything, and when things get lost, I get scared about it.

“But what television seems to offer is the opportunity to make something that is truly unpredictable. That’s what draws me to it, honestly, even more than movies, because movies follow a three-act structure, and TV doesn’t.

“Every episode you can do something different. You can do an entire episode about a side character who you didn’t know was going to be important. We hope to make a show that isn’t only narratively unpredictable, and plot-wise unpredictable, but also stylistically unpredictable.”

Preacher is a supernatural tale that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Cooper), who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop unusual power.

There’s a trend in television over the past several years. People love to watch a broken man. AMC is home to some of the most iconic examples of this trend, including Don Draper of Mad Men, Breaking Bad’s Walter White, and even Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead.

Now Dominic Cooper is stepping into the shoes of AMC’s latest potentially tragic hero, Jesse Custer. Does Jesse fit the same mold?
“I suppose he does,” Cooper admits. “It’s an interesting idea and question about why we’re enjoying watching that. I suppose it’s because we can relate more to it, because we all are in some way flawed. Even if we’re not, we certainly think we have flaws in our own personality, or mistakes that we’ve made, or we’re trying to be better than we actually are.”

Cooper goes on to point out that a major difference between Custer and his peers comes from motivation.

“Don [Draper] works for an advertising agency,” Cooper says. “This man, I am spiritually led. I have grown up believing in something, but have a huge guilt from my childhood. That in itself is a different story. It’s another idea of why a man is broken. It’s interesting and exciting to see a man or woman dealing with his or her demons and trying to do something good and better.

“He really, genuinely wants to bring this corrupt, dilapidated town that’s at its knees to stand again,” Cooper continues. “Resurrect and be wonderful and be the place he remembers his father taking care of, but it’s really hard. I think it’s a good reflection on the difference in society in a small town then and now in all our society. He’s dealing with different people with different desires, and a different need for money.

“He wants to make it good. Whether that’s all coming from his own guilt towards his father, I don’t know yet. Where does that come from? He’s trying to make peace with what he did, the things he did to his dad. Was he the cause of his father’s downfall and death? He’s trying to make that right. I think they’re interesting complexities that we as humans like to watch, because we struggle with them. If we don’t struggle with them much, we probably know that more struggles will come along at some point. It’s interesting to see how people deal with them.”

Preacher premieres Sunday, May 22 at 10 ET on AMC.
