Check Out Cassidy’s Hidden Talent in AMC’s New Preacher Promos


In advance of AMC’s Preacher premiere this coming weekend, Chris Hardwick got his hands on a hot, new teaser that I like much better than most of the promos we’ve seen thus far. It’s a simple parade of characters (love that Meatman shot) to the tune of Wanda Jackson’s Both Sides of the Line, and hey, check out Cassidy’s handy dandy cigarette lighting trick.

Hardwick announced he’ll do yet another post-series talk show, Talking Preacher, which will air directly after this Sunday’s (May 22nd) premiere episode. His guests will be producers Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin, and Jesse himself, Dominic Cooper.

AMC also released this character featurette which while informative, doesn’t even begin to hint at the comic’s true nature and tone, and gives me slight pause. I’ll certainly hold my tongue until after I watch the first episode, but I do have concerns about how far they’ll be able to go with Preacher‘s (and Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon’s) essence. (Check out my cast suggestions.)

Preacher also stars Joe Gilgun as Cassidy and Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare; also featured are Jackie Earle Haley, W. Earle Brown, Tom Brooke and Ian Colletti.
