Weeds' Elizabeth Perkins joins Dominic Cooper in AMC's Preacher

Preacher Elizabeth Perkins

Weeds and BIG actress Elizabeth Perkins has been added to the cast for AMC's Preacher pilot from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, joining Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti and Lucy Griffiths. That's the good news; the bad news is just like Griffiths, it's looking like Perkins will be playing a character who doesn't appear in the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon created comic. Here's the description of her character from Deadline:

Vyla Quinncannon is a genteel but formidable businesswoman who owns the local slaughterhouse in Annville. Ambitious, strong-willed and terrifying, Vyla shares a past with Jesse’s father which gives her a singular hold over Jesse.

It sounds like Vyla Quinncannon is a combination of a couple of different characters: Jesse's mom and/or Marie L'Angelle (Jesse's grandmother), and Odin Quincannon, who doesn't appear until the seventh collected volume of the series. Does this mean the TV adaptation will be set entirely (or at least the first season) in Annville? I sure the hell hope not.

I'm quite interested in seeing what Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will do with a TV version of the violent (but also darkly funny) comic, but I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't just a tad concerned about AMC's Preacher.

Filming for Preacher should start soon, and it is expected to premiere sometime in 2016.

Wondering who's gonna play Herr Starr, Jody and the chicken-fucking guy. Those guys need to be in this.

A Preacher TV show is an amazing idea only if it stays true to the comics. Here's hoping it turns out well.

Boo

" Ambitious, strong-willed and terrifying, Vyla shares a past with Jesse’s father which gives her a singular hold over Jesse."
So we get characters not from the comic, with storyline not from the comic. So long as they don't sacrifice actual story to feed this shit screen time, it might not be terrible.

Mmmmmm....

Whatever the reason, any fucking around with the storyline is not gonna go over well. I'll be devastated if ODIN Quincannon gets cut and his [link] shows up on the show :/
