Preacher Adds Jamie Anne Allman & Derek Wilson



Add two more to the cast of AMC’s Preacher TV series with Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson.

Deadline reports Allman, known for The Killing, will play Betsy Schenck, a meek wife who appears to suffer beatings by the hand of her husband, Donny; however, when the Preacher checks up on her, she tells a different story.

Wilson, known for Rectify, is playing the abusive husband, Donny, a Civil War re-enactor and abusive thug who gets into altercations with Jesse Custer (the Preacher) but nevertheless shows up to church on Sundays.

Preacher centers around Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), 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. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God. Ian Colletiti has also been cast as Arseface.
