Ian Colletti Cast As Arseface in Preacher TV Series



Following Ruth Negga being cast as the female lead, now Ian Colletti has been announced as Arseface for the AMC Preacher TV series.

Deadline reports Colletii will play Eugene Root, aka Arseface, with the character described as: “having a horribly disfigured face and severe speech impediment, Eugene’s still the nicest kid you’ll ever meet and really looks up to Jesse. Stomach-churningly difficult to look at, Eugene’s the town’s reviled Frankenstein’s monster, but that won’t change his earnest, sweet and pure outlook on life. However, he is troubled by something terrible he’s done in the past — something he fears might have turned God himself against him.”

Preacher follows Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says.

Preacher is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic; Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing the project for AMC and will direct the pilot, written by Sam Catlin who will serve as showrunner.
