Ruth Negga (Misfits.) has been cast as the female lead in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher series for AMC.
Preacher is based on a 90’s comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
The book follows Jesse Custer, a Texas preacher whom has the ability to make anyone do anything he says.
Negga is the first actor cast in the pilot and will take the role of Jesse’s ex-girlfriend, Tulip, who joins him on a quest to literally find God.
She’s described as:
a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to construct helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.
