If you've been awaiting more news on AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990's comic "Preacher", which is coming at us from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, we've learned some casting news, but it's not the role of Jesse Custer (although we hope to hear word on that soon!).

Deadline is reporting that "Agent of SHIELD" actress Ruth Negga has been cast as the female lead, playing Tulip, the ex and only true love of Jesse Custer. Tulip is 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.

Rogen and Goldberg wrote the adaptation for Neal Moritz’s Original Film. That trio is exec producing through their Point Grey banner, along with showrunner Sam Catlin.

“Preacher” is about...

Jesse Custer, a preacher in a Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire, the three embark on a journey to find God…and make him answer for his sins.”
