In very exciting comics news, Dominic Cooper has officially signed on to AMC’s upcoming television adaptation of the Vertigo hit, Preacher. Seth Rogen confirmed the news on via his Twitter account:

Cooper will star as Jesse Custer, a Texan preacher who loses his religion – only to be imbued with god-like powers by an entity called Genesis. He joins already-confirmed cast members Ruth Negga (Tulip), Joe Gilgun (Cassidy), and Ian Colletti (Arseface).
Preacher was developed by Rogen and frequent writing collaborator, Evan Goldberg, and AMC ordered the pilot back in December.
