AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Chooses Jack Earle Haley To Play ‘Odin Quincannon’

In the AMC adaptation of Preacher, Odin is described as a small, decrepit old man who is a real “heavy-hitter” in Annville County, Texas. He also runs the Meat & Power slaughterhouse in town — his 125-year-old family-run cattle business.
In Preacher, Odin is well known as a racist being an active member of the local KKK branch. His conduct will also be highly controversial. For instance, during one run in with the Preacher Protagonist, Jesse, he was discovered having sex with mannequin made out of meat products.

This is just one of many pivotal moments of the Preacher franchise, and it will be interesting to see how AMC and Haley handles them.

Agent Carter alum, Dominic Cooper, takes on the role of the Preacher, himself, with a troubled past. His main goal now, on his walk of faith, is to track down God and hold him responsible for forsaking mankind.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress, Ruth Negga, was recruited to play Tulip O’Hare. Tulip O’Hare is Jesse’s ex-girlfriend who helps him out on his quest, loves beer, and is also a vampire.

Some other confirmed popular characters and the actors portraying them are, True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow — a church organist and Jesse’s loyal right hand. This Is England‘s Joseph Gilgun: As Cassidy — The Irish vampire. And Ian Colletti as Eugene Root (aka Arseface).
