Productor ejecutivo confirma que hay más canon de los cómics y nuevos giros en la S2
Por Scott Huver, 22 Junio 2017


"Preacher's" Jesse Cutler, Tulip, and Cassidy have finally hit the road together in the horror-comedy's second season, just as they were when they were first introduced in the Vertigo comic book. But executive producer Sam Catlin reminds you: even when things feel familiar to die-hard fans, the series promises a fresh twist around every corner.

A veteran of the "Breaking Bad" writers room who teamed with actor Seth Rogen and his longtime screenwriting partner Evan Goldberg ("Superbad," "Pineapple Express," "This Is the End") to develop the comics series first launched by writer Garth Ennis and the late artist Steve Dillon, Catlin tells Moviefone that -- after a first season that played much like a prequel to established mythology -- while the show's leaning closer to its roots -- fan-favorite the Saint of Killers has arrived, and Herr Star is close behind -- there are plenty of unexpected surprises on the road ahead as the characters start to feel more and more like the TV incarnation's own.

Moviefone: What were the creative lessons from the first season that you wanted to carry over into Season 2?

Sam Catlin: I just felt like there were certain things that we kind of discovered that only our show could sort of pull of, and we wanted to just do more of that. There's so much great TV out there, interesting TV, but there are certain things that we realized that only our show could get away with. So we tried to do more of that, in terms of the violence, and the comedy, and the perversity, and stuff like that.

I think we're excited by the fact that Jesse's sort of drive is an external one, and not sort of an internal one, a philosophical one. He's looking for God, not in himself, and not in the stars, but he's down the road somewhere and I'm going to find him. And sort of giving him a real external drive was really exciting and liberating for us as writers.

From the start, Season 2 is going to skew a little closer to what the comic book is, but you guys are still going to color outside the lines. So tell me about knowing that you've got this road map that you can follow, but you're making the show your own, you're making different creative choices and doing what you're able do for TV.

I think -- and Garth [Ennis] will tell you this -- you couldn't shoot the comic books as a TV show. And it's not even just a question of how much money it would cost you to be in the south of France and ancient Ireland from episode to episode. It's not just that -- it's just that we would actually run out of story pretty quickly.

So what we want to do is we always want to make "Preacher" feel like "Preacher," and we delve a little deeper into some of these, what look like little pit stops on the road in the comic book become whole episodes, or several episodes, or stuff like that.

We meet Herr Starr. How did Herr Starr become Herr Starr? What is this place, the Grail? How did the Grail start? The Saint of Killers -- what's in it for him? Why is he going after Jesse? What's his reward if he gets him? Stuff like that. So, hopefully, it feels like the show, in the sense of, it's a road show about a guy looking for God, and anything can happen, and has all these different genres, and we know all these characters. There'll be new characters – there just have to be. We're not going to leave any of the great set pieces, or the great characters, on the shelf for very long.

Give me some characters that you were excited making a little bit bigger. The Saint of Killers is one, I expect ...

The Saint of Killers -- having him in our world with Jesse and Tulip and Cassidy is very exciting. I think we'll probably spend some time and learn a little bit, we'll introduce the Grail, and some of its components -- very excited about that!

We're going to tease a little bit more about what happened to Jesse after his father was killed, and where he ended up after that, and how that sort of informs his search for God. We're going to learn a little bit more about Tulip back in the day, and when she and Jesse were sort of outlaws together, and what sort of drove them apart, and where she ended up as a result of their breakup.

And we're going to learn more about Cassidy in terms of, we're going to start to understand some of the wreckage that he left behind, and bridges that he burnt, and how will he try to make amends to people that he betrayed in the past, and how will that end up making things much, much worse as a result.

So, yeah, we get to sort of expand the world in a lot of different ways. We're getting much more in terms of, we're starting to pull more and more of these characters into the world, which is exciting.

Tone is the trick on any television show. You guys are standing right on that barbed wire fence with your mix of violence and comedy, and how you're able to portray it. Working with the network to know how far you can go, deciding amongst yourselves creatively how far is too far, and going over the edge when it can be fun. How do you work through those things?

The tone of the show -- it's a tricky tone. We're just borrowing and stealing from all these movies, and things that we like, that all work independently, but we're trying to put them all in the Monty Python, and Sam Peckinpah and Quentin Tarantino, and trying to put them all into one world where they don't sort of capsize each other. That's definitely part of the trick.

But I feel like the show can sustain more than I thought it could, in terms of its absurdity and all of that, in Season 1 for sure. In terms of the network, we definitely had more fretful calls from the network this year, but really, fewer. Whatever people are picturing in terms of handwringing, and you can't do that, I think everyone signed up for Garth's "Preacher," and that's what they're getting. American culture is so bereft and decayed at this point, that I think network executives have rightly just thrown up their hands and given up!

I love the show's use of music, often to a great comedic effect but still always with an awesome song. That's got to be a very tricky thing, too, to find those great pieces of music that are also commenting on the scene or enhancing a scene. So tell me a little bit about that aspect of it.

Yeah, that's the work of us and our music supervisors. Yeah, a lot of the fun is finding that right song. For "Come on Eileen," that was going to be something else. It didn't wear well over time. Then we were sort of running out of time because the actors had to learn the song.

It's a sort of nostalgic song. It's a sort of peppy song. It's a song that you shouldn't really enjoy, but you do, but you secretly do. So yeah, finding that right song is a lot of fun.

As you said, I'm sure at the beginning you thought, "How long can we sustain this with the material that we have to draw from?"I get the sense that you feel like you're pretty confident there's a lot of stories for you to tell, digging into the different corners of this world. Tell me about getting from there to here and realizing, "Oh, this is richer than I initially might have thought."

Oh, for sure. For this season, I won't say, but we were going to have like this season be two halves, and we were going to end up with one arc, and then move on to a whole other world for the second half. Then we kept pushing it off. It's like, "Well, maybe we can get to that world for the last four episodes." Then maybe just the last two.

Then we realized, there's so much story with this world that we're just with these characters that we're just bringing in, and we don't want to shortchange this other world that we're really excited about getting to. So yeah, it's exactly what you say: sometimes it's just a couple of issues in a comic book of places that Jesse winds up, but they're whole worlds for us on a TV show that we can really delve into.

Seth and Evan have known each other forever, worked together forever, and now you guys are a trinity.

Wait, no one's asked this! Is the question, who's who? Evan is Tulip. No, Evan is Cassidy! Evan is Cassidy. I'm probably Jesse because I'm the sort of the grim, distraught one. I guess that means Seth is Tulip. He's Tulip.

To have found your creative vibe together -- and you guys have your fingerprints on this in a lot of different ways, like getting behind the camera to direct -- how is that creative partnership experience now this deep into it all?

Oh God, it could have been a disaster. It really could have been a disaster. But they're great. It has all the elements of a failure to it, in a sense that you're bringing Seth and Evan, movie stars with a passion project of this thing that they've been loving for so long, and then bring it to me. They don't know me. I'm just some TV hack that they brought in. So it could have been fraught, and it just hasn't been.

I feel like, really from the beginning, we've wanted to make the same show. We talked about the same show. I think we see the show in the same way. There'll be times like, "Oh, that doesn't make sense." But in terms of the overall vision of the show, there's never been any arguments, really.

How often do you check in with Garth, either with a question or just to talk through ideas?

When was the last time I talked to him? Maybe a month or so ago. He'll just send an email saying, "The Saint wouldn't have that type of ammo." It's weird, because I know he really likes the show and is behind the show, but the details that he insists on when he insists on them, it's like, "Absolutely! Whatever you say, we're going to do that."

But I love Garth. He's also been a great collaborator. There's another thing that could have gone horrendously wrong, which is, my character, that's not the story. And he's been so gracious and generous with his magnum opus with us. He's just trusted us. I don't know why. Maybe it's just the cash, the simple money. It's a money grab for him, that greedy Irish immigrant! So yeah, keep watching it so we can enrich Garth Ennis

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven't watched the first season of Preacher.

Preacher, AMC's gothic horror fantasy sci-fi dramedy, is returning for its second season on Sunday, and fans are excited to see the long-awaited road trip kick off.

Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip O'Hare (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy the Vampire (Joseph Gilgun) are hitting the highway on a quest for God. But while the trio seem to be thick as thieves, that unity sounds like it's going to be short-lived.

ET recently caught up with the stars of the acclaimed series, where they shared a glimpse of what fans can look forward to (or possibly dread) from their grim journey.

"It's a great sort of cozy idea that the three of them are happy at last, having found friendship and comfort and a life that they've really missed, and there's an excitement between them. They've found sort of a purpose," Cooper explained. "But you know that they're lying to each other."

Before we delve into the ill-fated future of our anti-heroes, let's look back with a quick refresher for anyone who needs to get up to speed!

Jesse is a criminal-turned-Preacher who returned to minister his dead father's church in the small, bleak town of Annville, Texas. He's also the host to a mysterious entity called Genesis, which gives him a power he calls the "Word of God," and he can use it to make anyone do anything he says.

Tulip is a rough-and-tumble criminal with a dark past who used to be in a relationship with Jesse until something happened in their past that tore them apart. After coming back to Annville, Tulip spends most of the first season reacquainting with Jesse and being the devil on his shoulder.

Meanwhile, Cassidy is a 119-year-old vampire who literally lands in Annville after jumping out of a plane without a parachute. After befriending Jesse, Cassidy becomes one of his most dedicated allies.

In the season finale, Jesse discovers that God has abandoned heaven and the three of them hit the road on a journey to find God and make him account for his actions. However, the news that God has abandoned his creations doesn't sit well with the citizens of Annville, and the news drives them all insane.

Hours after Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy leave, a freak accident causes the entire town to blow up, killing off basically every secondary character on the show in an apocalyptic explosion. So, this new season is kind of a clean slate.

However, Cooper explained that, despite how cozy Jesse and his pals seem now, they're on a mission: "There's stuff that they're not telling one another."

"It's under the guise of a fun road trip with mates, but you know full well, that in the confined space of this car… that those very powerful, distinctive personalities are going to be at loggerheads with one another," he teased. "And that's what we feel is kind of bubbling under the surface in the beginning."

One thing that has defined Preacher is its wildly varying tones. In some scenes, the series is a bleak and existential examination of human nature and the meaning of faith, and other times it's slapstick, gore-filled horror comedy. For Cooper, that unpredictability continues just as boldly in the coming season.

"One minute, you're having a very serious debate or a reflective moment about your history," he said, "and then, within seconds, you're fighting or dealing with a conversation about foreskins or [battling] an unknown entity that's beyond the realms of possibility in our world as we know it."

One of the major sources of tension this season is the unspoken love triangle between Jesse and Tulip -- who have rekindled their relationship -- and Cassidy, who slept with Tulip midway through season one, before he knew she was his new friend's ex.

According to Gilgun, Cassidy "feels dreadful" about his fling with Tulip, and he wants to fess up to Jesse to clear his conscience, but he's also battling the residual feelings he still harbors for her.

"He wants to say, 'Listen, I didn’t know and I'm sorry. And I'm sorry I even feel anything for her now. I've tried to not feel that way, and I just can't,'" Gilgun explained. "It's not like there's any agenda or any malicious intent behind it. He's not trying to split anyone up."

Cassidy has perhaps had the biggest arc of anyone on the show -- going from a blood-thirsty drugged-out lunatic to a kinder, more conscientious friend who legitimately wants to help Jesse on his mission.

"This year has been very different. [We've seen] a different version of Cassidy. He's kind of a bit more domesticated this year. He's got responsibilities this year, and it's been a challenge," Gilgun shared.

As much as Gilgun loved "the fighting, the drinking, and the drugs" in past episodes, he admitted he's felt much more fulfilled portraying a more complex Cassidy in the second season.

"As an actor, you have to play a light and dark and sometimes you have to go to some dark places," Gilgun said. "Cassidy has been desperately trying to repent, since meeting Jesse. He's having a go at it. It doesn't work out, surprisingly, but at least he has a go."

Since his character has calmed down a bit, it means Gilgun hasn't had as many scenes in which he's drenched head to toe in fake blood and gore, and he actually misses it.

"I had accepted it as part of my role and I was proud of it. I was proud of my [bloody] handprints around the set. Proud of the fact that you could find me from a trail [of fake gore]. I loved being the Vampire," he said. "This season, there's not been as much blood, I have to say. There's been moments, there's been windows of it, but I'd like to see a lot more."

As for Negga, the tension between Tulip and Jesse is building as well, and it's all due to Jesse's mind-controlling superpower and his single-minded determination to find and judge God himself.

"It's an aberration for him to go on this quest, because it's not him and it's not how she envisions anyone she loves being," Negga explained. "It just doesn't make any sense to her." In her mind, Jesse's immense power is a "corrupting influence," and Tulip's trying -- and often failing -- to be his moral compass.

"Even if one thinks [what they're doing is] for the greater good, how does one know if there's no one to check it? And [Tulip] is trying to check it but how do you battle someone who is on a mission and has a singular vision of what they're supposed to do and really believes it? That’s where the tension in their relationship comes from, and the distancing," she said.

Although it doesn't help that Tulip has a few dark secrets in her past that come to light as the trio look for the Lord Almighty in the beautiful city of New Orleans.

While on their journey, Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy only have each other to rely on -- but with a whole lot of villians coming out of the woodwork this season, things are going to get even more dangerous than ever before. However, Cooper says he's looking forward to getting to kick some more ass.

"[The fights] really underline who [Jesse] is," he said. "He's a man who's just an addict, and when you see him finally give in to a fight, you see that kind of joy and that release. And I've loved doing them, and there's more and more in this next [season]."

Preacher premieres Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.

El elenco de Preacher sobre cómo la Season 2 abraza más completamente los cómics
Por Eric Goldman - 23 Junio 2017


This past spring, I visited New Orleans to pay a visit to the set of Preacher: Season 2. And what a set it was, as the show was filming at a huge and opulent mansion that day. I have to be vague about what exactly was occurring, but it did involve Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) once more using his “word of God” abilities to make others do his bidding – and Tulip (Ruth Negga) responding with her trademark deadpan “Really, Jesse?” vibe, in another fun and funny sequence. But as another scene I watched cast members film later in the day proved, things would get much more dramatic and intense during Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy’s stay at this place.

I spoke to Preacher’s central trio about what’s to come in Season 2, as the show more closely resembles the comic book source material than it did in its first year, the characters travel to New Orleans, and new foes surface.


Into the Comics

From the start, Preacher’s producers noted that while they were never going to be doing an exact, page-for-page adaption of the comic, Season 1 was intended as more of a prequel to the events fans consider to be Preacher’s main story – all taking place in the town of Annville, which in the comics was already destroyed when the story began.

Season 2 begins with Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy on the road, searching for God – the main quest that fuels them in the comics. The cast acknowledged that some fans of the comics would have liked to have seen this from the start, but that they felt it was important to lay the groundwork that they did.

Dominic Cooper: It was such an odd balance in the beginning trying to work out who we were and what we were doing. It made sense that we needed to establish who these people were and what they came from. What’s wonderful now is that we go back in time and start to see who they are, like a jigsaw puzzle, and everything starts to make sense. I love TV like that where it dawns on you, the realization of why someone is behaving the way they are and what motivated their behavior. And it was odd to play a character that seemed slightly removed from the person I came to learn about in the comics. It really feels like it’s been bubbling under the surface and now we’re letting loose these characters which the comic is so full of. We were slowly introducing them. Now I feel like the dynamic, certainly between the three leads in this, and knowing what we know as an audience and what they don’t know about each other makes for a compelling story - they’re completely locking heads with each other. It’s great when they know more backstory and information about them and slowly it’s being revealed how they behave toward one another and how they are with themselves. They’re all despicable in their own way.

Joseph Gilgun: This is going to be what I think the fans were looking for. But one thing we want to inject into the season is the reality of these kind of missions. The Hollywood version is high fiving and everything going great and in real life, that’s not how it works. People get in the way and effect what you’ve set out to do, which is ultimately to find God. Each one of us has a past in New Orleans that are holding it up for them and also are a distraction. The main drive is Jesse and this search for God. That’s what it’s about. That’s what the comics are about and what Jesse is about to some extent. But for Cassidy in particular, speaking for myself, there’s a whole bunch of s**t that’s going to f**k that up - that good fun search for God that he had in his head, the reality is different. That’s just life. That’s the way it is.

Cooper: I think [the producers] very much listened to the fans and what they appreciated in the first one and what they maybe thought was lacking. They always said it was like holding a race horse back. But if you did it with the speed as the comic did, the comic begins with such a smash. You’d be confused with what was happening. This has been a very clever way of starting it out and now we can really run with it. Where they’re full established and you can do anything you like.


Group Dynamic

Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy begin the season united and on the same mission. But suffice to say, it won’t be that way all the time.

Cooper: What’s great is that you expect it to be so joyful. And it is. It’s a joyful moment in their life. They’re in search of something. They have a purpose - certainly Jesse does. He truly thinks he knows what his aim is. And you see the wheels start to fall off and it becoming more clear that everything is not what it seems and the conflicting viewpoints and struggles of what they want and the lies that they’re hiding start to infect the relationship. Three is a tough relationship in any capacity. That dynamic is very interesting as well to see who sides with who, who harbors secrets from each other to protect the other. All that is happening and then we’re introducing other people into that dynamic. It should make for quite explosive television. It certainly does in the comic and that’s what we’re doing now. I think it was clever to take time and space with the first [season] and get the temperature of it and gauge what the audience.

Ruth Negga: I don’t think the vibe is different. We still have our threesome. But I think we can dig a little deeper and kind of explore the depths of their relationship and the nuances and the history of Jesse and Tulip and the fracture lines of their relationship. Certainly for Tulip a lot of the past comes back to haunt her in a very tangible way, a real way when they hit New Orleans. There’s a reason that she’s reluctant to come back here and it’s something to do with the very recent past. It’s exploring that unknown time between leaving Jesse and coming back and what happened to her. We can explore that a little further. I think the three of them and how their relationships deepen and also how the things that happened to them can also pull them further apart from one another. This idea that Jesse is a man on a mission, quite literally and how that kind of can create a dissonance between what he desires and their desires and what they want from him.

Gilgun: Familiarity breeds contempt. We all know that. We have all had that at some stage with our friends or our family whatever that may be. They’re essentially living out of a car really, all of them together, every day, off the back of this really intense experience. They’ve got this f**king lunatic after them that they don’t understand. There’s a lot of tension and irritation. They love each other but I think tensions will only get worse. But it’s not this -- we’re trying to make it real. It’s an insane storyline. A f**king preacher, his assassin girlfriend, and they meet this vampire. That’s enough. The reality of a mission like this, it’d be really f**king hard work to stay on track, especially if you’re a wayward vampire or a f**king assassin. Definitely tensions get high.


The Saint and the Starr

The “f**king lunatic after them that they don’t understand” that Gilgun mentioned (and yes, he curses constantly, in a wonderfully amusing way) is, of course, the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), a popular character from the comics whose own origin we saw play out in Season 1. We’ll also meet another iconic comic book character villain in Season 2 as well, Herr Starr, played by Pip Torrens.

Cooper: They’re vital to the overall arch and journey of the entire comic. What they’re finally threading in is to embed it in a reality. You have these larger than life characters that they need to establish and are integral to the story. I don’t know yet how that’s really going to unfold. But that’s going to be the main [obstacle] -- certainly for Jesse and what he is and what he thinks he can achieve, the good he thinks he can do where he’s constantly fighting and struggling against this darker, evil side. With that looming over him, we just slowly discovered these characters and who they are and the grail and Herr Starr and what he represents. They’re still just giving us enough and in certain scenes so far, I’m still finding out as well as the audience at the same time, “Who are these people? What is this entity? What is my purpose, my role? What can I do for the greater good?” They’ve been constantly fighting this terrible darkness. But they’re all going to come about and I’m like a kid in a candy store. And I’m thrilled by who is playing Herr Starr because I’ve worked with him before and those scenes are going to be very imaginative and fun to play out. Same with Saint of Killers. There’s going to be some great stuff where their full power, their strengths will come head to head and you can’t imagine how that will unfold.

Negga I’ve read some of his scripts and it’s brilliant. [Herr Starr’s] humor is there and that dry, twisted vulgar human being is there. All there.

The Fights and the Gore

Preacher made an impression from the start with its wild fight scenes mixed with wild, gory moments – all of which will continue in Season 2. And perhaps even go bigger.

Cooper: I think they’re being pushed to get more of the gore, more of the fighting. We’re on the road and you see what they’re capable of and what they can possibly do. I’ve had a lot of fight training and done a lot with our stunt director and he’s been given much more freedom to do whatever he pleases. Because he’s absolutely brilliant. He came up with our original bar fight in the first one. I think people wanted a little bit more of that or felt like they wanted to see more. You know he’s a dangerous, volatile man and what he’s capable of. You want to see the man he could be and how dangerous he could be.

Negga: I think that’s one of the huge driving forces behind why Seth [Rogan] and Evan [Goldberg] got this off the ground. That’s what people fall in love with is that kind of really elegant punch in the stomach. Because it is. The thing about our fight scenes and all these blood and guts and gore, it’s very base but there’s an elegance to it and an intelligence to it. So yeah there’s lots more of that and we have [John] Koyama, our fight director. He choreographs everything so beautifully and in tandem with the spirit of the comic books. It’s a thrill. It really is. And the thing is, I don’t think anyone goes “You shouldn’t be doing this.” Yeah, we should be doing this! Let’s go there. That’s the whole point. For me, that’s the whole point of Preacher is that he wanted to push the envelope. He wanted to shock and awe. But not just for the sake of it, to actually generate thought and I think that’s what we do. Plus it looks really beautiful.

I love the fights. I think they’re brilliant. And I love the contradiction. They play brilliantly with the size of the dudes Tulip assassinates and me. That’s pretty cool. We’ve got a few cool fight scenes. I love the attitude of these characters. This is an everyday kind of occurrence. There’s always something up her sleeve but not in a mercenary kind of way. You get the feeling that she’s naturally good at this but it’s always in a thinking on her feet kind of way. There’s nothing premeditated about Tulip. That’s the thrill of watching her fight and doing those fight scenes. It comes from self taught, street fighting. That’s what people love about it, that’s what I love about it. There’s a ruggedness, an off the cuff ness. It’s not slick. That’s what makes it all the more exciting to watch and thrilling to watch.

Gilgun: Seth’s episode has all that. There’s one thing in particular where like this guy’s brain just sort of craps out of a hole in his head. It’s f**king appalling, dude. It’s my fault as well, I did that. It was on me, that one.


RIP, Annville

The destruction of Annville at the end of Season 1 seemed to wipe out, essentially, the entire original supporting cast of the series. But should we assume they’re really all gone, or could some have made it out?

Cooper: They just blew up! They blew up and they’re dead. …I think. That’s mainly what happened. But who knows. Again, with this project, what I love about it and what’s always so surprising is you never have a clue. You might suddenly discover that one of the characters is somewhere or escaped or got away. They can decide that on a whim. They can suddenly have a creative idea and expand upon it and risk going completely into it. That’s the nature of it and the fun of it.

Negga: I think you will [discover more specifics about Annville]. And it’s tied in to a lot of different things. There will be a lot to absorb. A lot will start to make sense and a lot of things will make you more curious, which is what Preacher is really good at.

Gilgun: F**k the town! I’m glad to be out of it man. I’m glad to be on the road. New Orleans is sweet!

Sam Catlin habla sobre la S2 de 'Preacher' de la AMC, los nuevos enemigos para Jesse, Tulip y Cassidy

Ruth Negga as Tulip O'Hare, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer - Preacher Season 2

As Preacher’s long-awaited second season dawns, Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Oscar nominee Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on a mission to find God—and otherworldly folks are hellbent on catching ’em.

“This is when the show really turns into the Preacher of comic book lore,” says showrunner Sam Catlin, who also co-executive produced Breaking Bad. “The show is bigger, it’s more dynamic, it’s on the move and the stakes are much higher. There’s more bad guys [oh hey, Herr Starr], there’s scarier bad guys, and there’s real rifts between our main characters. In a lot of ways, the story of Season 2 is how much stress can this partnership survive?”

Get the scoop on one of the best characters on AMC's comic-based series.

With Annville, the show’s fictional Season 1 locale, obliterated (along with most of its characters), the lusty pals have little in the rearview but trouble as they take to the road, affording Jesse new freedoms when it comes to wielding his powers.

"He doesn't have any of the same responsibilities that he had of staying in place and trying to save souls here in the little West Texas town," Catlin says. "He's still very much driven by his sense of guilt and obligation and responsibility and duty and all of those things, but in Season 2, he's much more able to draw on his darker skills — his ability to fight and control and to be a criminal. He's incorporating those more freely now into his mission and he's unshackled from his ‘good preacher’ obligations."

Here, Catlin updates us on our Preacher faves.

Jesse, Cassidy and Tulip
Sam Catlin: They have a few moments of fun and relaxation, and then all hell breaks loose. These Three Amigos will be put under stress from lies and jealousies and secrets and secret passions. As the stress builds from the external world, as the enemies and antagonists close in on our characters, it will put real pressure on this friendship.

The Saint of Killers
The Saint [Graham McTavish] was in a parallel world last year. He was in the 19th-century hell, and it’s great bringing him into the same world with Jesse and Tulip and Cassidy and seeing him interact not just with them, but with 21st-century America. Graham is such a amazing actor, and the work he's doing this year is so exciting. In a lot of ways he's the dark conscience of the show, and it's just been exciting giving him more and more stuff to do and bringing him more and more into our present day.

Eugene
We still have a story to tell with Eugene [Ian Colletti], that's for sure. What happened to him and what he's going through and what his prospects are for happiness are dim, but not impossible. We're definitely going to reconnect with him, and he makes some interesting friends this year in some very surprising places. If the Saint is the dark conscience of the show, then Eugene is the light conscience, or the Christian conscience, of the show.

Herr Starr
The Grail is a big part of the comics, and it’s headed by this wonderful character by the name of Herr Starr [Pip Torrens], who is this grotesque but formidable villain for Jesse and our gang, and has enormous resources. He’s one of the most powerful men in the world, but has foibles and weaknesses and perversions of his own. When we were breaking Season 1, it was like, "Oh, we can't wait to get to Herr Starr and the Grail and all that stuff." But we wanted to make sure that he had his due, and his due is Season 2.

La estrella de Preacher Ian Colletti adelanta lainfernal season 2 de Eugene
Por Clark Collis - 23 Junio, 2017 a las 6:51pm EDT


In the first season of Preacher, Ian Colletti’s character Eugene Root was accidentally banished to Hell by Dominic Cooper’s superpower-possessing man of God, Jesse Custer. So, how will Eugene cope with this turn of events in season 2 of AMC’s comic book adaptation, premiering June 25?

“Hell’s a pretty scary place filled with some scary characters,” Colletti tells EW. “I think Eugene — a pretty good and innocent person — is going to have to adapt to survive. In the first season, Eugene would come to Jesse with these feelings, and Jesse would often walk away, but in the second season, I think we’ll see more of a focus on Eugene himself, as he comes to grips with his own demons and realizes who he is.”

In Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s original comic, Eugene is widely known as “Arseface” because of a facial disfigurement caused by his trying to take his life with a shotgun. Colletti’s character is similarly scarred in the TV show and performs the part with a prosthetic covering his mouth and nose. “It can be rather difficult and gross,” he admits. “I can’t eat when I’m wearing it, and it gets spitty and snotty, and all kinds of lovely bodily fluids get caught behind it. It’s also a practical challenge as an actor. It’s an inch-thick of foam, so I often have to emote my face in a very unnatural way for it to read through the thick prosthetic — with something as simple as a subtle smile, it’s almost like you’re puppeteering something on your face.”

The irony? The main cast member who has to undergo the longest makeup routine before stepping onto the set is also the one least likely to be recognized off it. “There have even been times when I’ve hanging out with Dom, and Ruth [Negga], and Joe [Gilgun], and I’ve had people hand me their phone and ask if I could take a picture of them with them, which is always very funny,” he says.

Colletti should be more recognizable in his next project, Mohawk, the second film from We Are Still Here director Ted Geoghegan. Set in 1814, the action-horror movie concerns two Mohawk warriors and their British lover who are pursued by murderous American military renegades. Geoghegan’s film will receive its world premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal.

“It’s a unique story and it’s set in a time period that I don’t think we see enough onscreen,” says Colletti. “I think it’s going to be a really special, cool film.”

Preacher season 2 kicks off with a two-night event, beginning with the season premiere on AMC on Sunday, June 25 at 10 p.m. ET, followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26 at 9 p.m. ET in the series’ regular time slot.

El elenco y los productores prueban que las audiendias están para un endiablado viaje
Por Sydney Bucksbaum 23 Junio, 2017


Whether you're a fan of the comic books or not, Preacher is going to look a lot different this season. After discovering that the big man upstairs (as in God with a capital G) has officially gone missing, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) set out with his on-again girlfriend Tulip O'Hare (Ruth Negga) and vampire best friend Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) on the road trip of a lifetime to track him down and make him answer some questions. With Genesis, aka the Word of God, on Jesse's side, nothing can stop this trio from finding God. Right?

Not so much, actually. For those who have read Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Vertigo comic book series, it's pretty well known that Jesse's road trip to find God is going to be one hell of a bumpy ride. But in watching the first season of AMC's adaptation, it seemed as if Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin's TV version was following its own path, one much different from the comic book source material. For starters, Season 1 took place mostly in the small, corrupt Texas town of Annville instead of on the road. It mostly followed Jesse's discovery that Genesis was inside of him and learning about his newfound "Word of God" power and that God was missing. It was basically a prequel to the popular comic book series, an origin story for Preacher.

But then the Season 1 finale literally blew up the town of Annville. Now Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy are finally hitting the road in a quest ripped straight from the pages of the comics, so Season 2 (premiering Sunday, June 25 at 10 p.m. followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26 at 9 p.m. in the series' regular time slot) will feel a lot more like the story fans expected from the beginning. But according to showrunners Rogen and Goldberg, that was a "conscious decision" to make Season 1 the origin story.

"We discussed how the comic just goes from zero to 60 and hurls you into it, tells you a lot of info very quickly," Goldberg says during a press conference for Preacher Season 2. "And it never shows the Preacher preaching."

While Rogen laughs about "hopefully" having more time to tell their interpretation of the Preacher story (depending on how many seasons AMC gives them), he's glad they were able to take their time in setting up the characters, the world and the story in Season 1.

"To explore his relationship with God a little bit more was something that we thought we could do," Rogen says. "If you read comics, it's not that crazy, a lot of the ideas. But if you're someone who just watches television and doesn’t read the comics, they're pretty out there ideas. We tried to be aware of that and to slowly build up to some of the things [in] these completely alternate universes with completely alternate rules, very large world building ideas. We thought, in order to ground the show, we would build up to some of that stuff."
AMC

Now that they've laid the groundwork, "everything does shift" in Season 2. "I think all the characters shift and change in ways that are unexpected," Rogen says. "We're kind of changing what the show is. And we will keep doing that."

And according to executive producer Catlin, now that they're on track with the comic books, they're going to stay pretty true to the story.

"In terms of the worlds and the tone and the characters that we're bringing in and the larger story of what are Herr Star's [Pip Torren] plans and where is Jesse going to go and what happened in his past, all those things are faithful to the comic," Catlin says. "What we're trying to do is find these little moments and these little pit stops along the way from the comics and then dig into them, like learn more about why is Herr Star who Herr Star is? There's a little bit of his origin story in the comic book but we have this opportunity on a long-form television show of let's really get into his childhood and this and that. That's really exciting."

Cooper was pleased that Rogen, Goldberg and Catlin took their time in Season 1 to "establish something about the world and the characters for people who didn't know anything about the comics originally."

"It was good to inhabit a real world and a real space and truly understand what motivated these people before we went on this epic, crazed adventure," Cooper says. "If people had no idea about this and they started at this point, like in the comics, then you wouldn't quite be able to grab hold of exactly what it was that was going on. Now they have very distinctive goals, especially Jesse who is just absolutely, 100 percent guided by this necessity to find this entity that he feels is missing. He has a very specific objective."

In terms of the overall story of Season 2, Catlin promises Jesse's road trip is the same as it is in the comics.

"At the end of the day, we want it to feel, and I think this season will because he's not looking for God in himself, he's looking for God around the corner, that part of it, that road show, kick down doors and find God one way or another, that is the show and the comic," Catlin says. "How we get there in terms of the plot-by-plot narrative, it's always going to diverge in certain places and sometimes we're going to have things that are exactly alike. There are going to be new characters and all the great iconic characters. I'm confident that people will recognize the comic book much more in this season."

But that's not all I learned about what's coming in Preacher Season 2. Read on for everything there is to know about the new season, with scoop from Cooper, Negga, Gilgun and more.

Meet the Saint of Killers (officially and finally)

All throughout the first season, casual viewers may have been confused by the seemingly random storyline of The Cowboy (Graham McTavish) from 1881. Diehard fans knew who he was, of course, but it takes Preacher all the way until Season 2 to officially label him as the Saint of Killers, the legendary, unstoppable, supernatural killing machine freed from Hell and sent to kill Jesse after the angels were unable to separate Genesis from the Preacher.

"We wanted the first season to be more mystery and for the second one to be where it takes off," Goldberg says of keeping "The Cowboy's" real name under wraps for so long. "Now that it's taking off, we don't want there to be any mystery anymore. If you're unfamiliar with the comic, it's a discovery, but if you're familiar with the comic, it's pretty clever."

Rogen adds with his trademark laugh, "We liked the idea that you literally did not have any idea of why you were watching this Cowboy's side story and how it would play into anything on the show at all until the very end, basically. But those kinds of mysteries, there is less of this season. There's no huge, 'why the f*ck am I seeing this?'"

For those unfamiliar with the Saint of Killers from the comic books, McTavish reveals there will be a scene in an upcoming Season 2 episode where the trio research the mythological figure and find all kinds of information in books about his legendary life and afterlife. And viewers will also get to learn about who the Saint is now that he's been called up from Hell and is hot on Jesse's trail.

"I get a little bit more to say in this season. He starts opening up," McTavish says with a small smirk. "The Cowboy, that's not my name. It's the Saint of Killers. I think the Saint, not uniquely but certainly among a few of the characters, is very true to the book. We don't stray really away from who he is and why he's doing what he's doing."

Physically, however, the Saint might look a bit different. "The whole look of him, we adjusted the look and color palette and makeup and physicality, mainly because he'd been in hell for 100 years," McTavish says. "It takes its toll. But we did very consciously want to stick to that because he is such a pure character in the story. Not in his actions but because of what he does and the motivations he has, it's important that we stick to that."

But the Saint of Killers isn't the only one Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy have to fear. This season also sees the introduction of Herr Star and the Grail, a super secret religious government military organization. Rogen reveals that Star and the Saint "are both very prominent this season" as villains.

While Jesse may be searching for God, his past comes back to bite him this season, as viewers will get to meet his maternal family. And there's a reason he doesn't talk about them at all: they are extremely disturbed and abusive, to say the least.

"You'll learn more about Jesse's other side of the family," Rogen teases.

"The family he grew up with, the grandmother. It's coming. It's coming," Cooper adds. "The damage that has been done to him by two major things that have happened: the implication that he believes he's the cause of his father's death and then he went to live [with his] grandmother … It's grim and we're slowly getting there. You'll see towards the end there is a very specific reason why he has to engage in that life again and it terrifies him more than anything in the world."

Tulip and Cassidy's roots

When Jesse's quest leads him, Tulip and Cassidy to New Orleans, the truth about both Tulip's past and Cassidy's history will come to light.

"I think we've veered so far away from a lot of how you're invited into Tulip's world [on the show vs. the comics]," Negga says. "She's quite broken and meek when you meet her [in the comics] and that's not how we started off with our Tulip. This season we have an opportunity to explore her more vulnerable side. We disarm her, both physically and mentally in this season. That's a very naked place for Tulip to be. She's been defanged in a way this season by certain events."

For those waiting for the AMC series to get into Cassidy's comic book arc, don't hold your breath.
"We haven't really broached much of Cassidy's stuff from the comics this year. The intention is to do that next year," Gilgun says. "I was looking forward to that this year, I'll be honest. But the story is taking a new turn. We've got this sort of domestic version of Cass. I don't want that to sound like I'm bored, because that's certainly not the case. He's just a little different."

Having responsibilities this season will have a big effect on Cassidy.

"Since meeting Jesse, who is on this path of redemption, I think he's having a crack at [redemption] himself this year," Gilgun says. "He had the option of not running into these problems but he chose to face them head on. In this trio, he doesn't want to just be this idiot Irish sidekick. It's important for him to prove to the group that he is of some use, so the first thing he does is try and set everyone up with some free digs."

He adds, "Unfortunately free digs means responsibility for Cassidy, something that he's not been able to put into practice for that last 120 years. He's been avoiding his problems, and this is a 73-year-old problem that's been under the rug for a long, long time and he's having to broach that. The idea of this year is that we're going on this adventure but normal life gets in the way."

According to Negga, both Tulip and Cassidy will struggle with their new reality on the road.

"There's a definite tension because there's an equilibrium that's been lost. This is Jesse's mission," Negga says. "Both Cassidy and Tulip are very dubious about that because they're used to having certain independence and autonomy. But they don't really have any other options. Annville is gone, it's been exploded away. Tulip is on the run from God knows how many people and so is Cassidy, he has no friends left. They keep dying because he's so bloody old. They've found this itinerant misfit-ty family. Hopefully they can keep all their demons at bay but you find that everyone is keeping secrets this season and how that creates huge cavernous fissures between one another. Secrets are exhausting and they can only be secrets before they explode in one's face and we'll see that happen."

The most uncomfortable love triangle

One of those secrets bound to blow up in all their faces is the fact that Cassidy and Tulip slept together before they realized what they both meant to Jesse. And now they're all stuck together in one car on a seemingly endless road trip ... awkward.

"It's a real dilemma for Cass, because he's got a very unusual moral compass," Gilgun says. "He prides himself on his loyalty to his friends. To have no integrity is like the worst thing you could f*cking have as a human being and Cassidy knows that to some degree. He's seeking redemption. I think Cassidy is having a stab of it but the whole relationship with Tulip and just being honest with Jess, I think he's really struggling with that."

He continues, "It's a really horrible position to be in. We all know unrequited love. You don't pick who you fall for. It's a f*cking nightmare when they don't like you back. Cassidy still really likes Tulip but loves his friend and ultimately knows he needs those people to keep him on the straight and narrow."

And just for the record, Gilgun hates talking about Cassidy and Tulip. Seriously, don't ever ask him about that. When I started to ask a question about their dynamic this season, he cut me off with, "That's so f*cking boring. I'm sick of answering this f*cking question."

But then he smiled, let me finish, and still answered my question with a pretty thoughtful answer, ending our interview by giving me a fist bump after ragging on me, so I guess there's no hard feelings there? (I still love you, Gilgun!)

- Graham McTavish comparte información sobre la Season 2 de "Preacher" (denofgeek):

Graham McTavish comparte información sobre la Season 2 de "Preacher"
Por Michael Ahr - 25 Junio, 2017


The cowboy known as the Saint of Killers, who was relegated to flashbacks seemingly unrelated to the main action in season 1 of AMC’s Preacher, may have snuck up on some viewers, but that’s about to change as the Preacher season 2 premieres tonight with a two-hour episode that promises to feature Graham McTavish’s cowboy in a way that will leave little doubt as to his central role in the ongoing story.

“He is more prominent in season 2,” McTavish promises. “Right from the get-go in episode 1, he’s contributing to the action, that’s for sure!” Those who enjoyed the first season of Preacher may remember the cowboy showed up in modern times and was able to permanently dispatch an angel while making his intentions clear about finding “the preacher,” Dominic Cooper’s Jesse Custer.

“It pretty much picks up straight off from where we left everybody in season 1,” agrees McTavish, “and he has a singular purpose, and that is to get ahold of Genesis and thereby be reunited with his family. He doesn’t have anything personally against Jesse; he is merely a means to an end, and all the poor folks that stray into my path are merely people to be removed — again, without any personal animosity.”

Whether the cowboy will have much more to say as he becomes a more important figure isn’t really up for question, as McTavish will almost certainly continue to fill his mostly silent performance with a quiet but powerful menace. “He’s a man who’s economical with his words and his movements, so you have to retain this sort of skilled silence a lot of the time and allow that silence and stillness to be very eloquent in their own way,” McTavish admits. “If you were to suddenly place massive pages of dialogue in the hands of a character like the Saint of Killers, it just wouldn’t fit properly.”

McTavish asserts that his character’s slow pace is part of what makes him so intimidating. “I move at a measured pace in the show because that’s more frightening, I think, then seeing me run down the street,” he says. “There’s something much more menacing about a man that can take his time coming after you than somebody that needs to rush.”

McTavish’s performance is all that much more remarkable given that viewers do actually sympathize with the Saint of Killers in some ways. “You do feel sympathy for him because of what happened to his family,” McTavish argues. “He was a man that was trying to do good. He went back to help people, and where did it get him? And as the season progresses, I think you see me, certainly in relation to Dominic’s character, that you’re unsure who the bad guy is in those scenes.”

As for how the cowboy, whose scenes in Preacher season 1 take place in the 19th century, adjusts to modern times, it’s really irrelevant, according to McTavish. “He’s unencumbered by those things. He relates to them only in as much as sometimes he might destroy them or push past them,” he explains. “He’s not like us who go through our lives compromising and having to accommodate other things, other people, other views. He has none of that, none of those issues. He’s the Saint of Killers; he’s not the saint of conversation or yoga or whatever.”

McTavish brings great gravitas to his role in a show filled with humor, darkness, emotion, and violence. In the end, the cowboy is as gritty as Preacher itself. “I think that one of the great strengths of the show is that it doesn’t give you easy answers,” concludes McTavish. “It’s not neat. This show is about, I think, the inner struggle that humanity has with the good and bad sides of our natures.”

The struggle continues as Preacher season 2 premieres with a two-hour episode tonight on AMC starting at 10pm ET. The full audio of this interview will be available in the July edition of our Sci Fi Fidelity podcast: iTunes | Stitcher | Soundcloud

Ruth Negga adelanta la madurez de Tulip en la Season 2 de "Preacher"

Preacher returns to television screens tonight, with many eagerly anticipating what the sophomore season of the AMC series has to offer. According to one of the show's leads, Ruth Negga, fans can expect quite a bit of emotional development with her character, Tulip O'Hare.

In an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com, Negga revealed that Tulip will feel much more at home in the second season, with her, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), and Cassidy (Joe Gilgun) hitting the road, leaving the now-destroyed Annville behing them.

"I think for Tulip, initially, that's very exciting." Negga explained. "Cause she wants to get back out on the road again and seek out adventure and fun. And try to regain some of that intimacy she had with Jesse before things went awry."

But according to Negga, the trio's stop in New Orleans will lead to a surprising emotional journey for Tulip.

"But I think what she's certainly not expecting is for it to take them to New Orleans." Negga revealed. "And I think there's a lot of history there that she doesn't wish to share with Jesse. Tulip is very good at compartmentalizing the truth, and sharing what she only thinks she needs to. In many ways, for her own safety and her own self-preservation. So there's a lot of interesting tensions that arise."

The actress hinted that one of those tense situations will result from the group - and Tulip in particular - coming face-to-face with the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish).

"For Tulip, especially, that is a very terrifying encounter." Negga teased. "I think it's unexpected, and I think the legacy of that encounter, or those encounters, opens up for her vulnerabilities and things that she really hadn't been dealing with. And the idea that she's not always able to protect herself, and perhaps others that she would rely on or have faith in to do that may not be there either."

That ominous hint aside, fans can expect an even stronger dynamic between Tulip, Jesse, and Cassidy. Negga and her costars recently teased the complex relationships in store for the trio in season two.

Preacher Season 2 premires June 25 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.

Dominic Cooper adelanta una temporada muy fiel a los cómics de "Preacher"

Tonight, Preacher will return to AMC for its second season, and the show will be something comic diehards want to check up on. Following its first season, Preacher is making a more comic-centric comeback this time around, and Dominic Cooper stresses the show’s new season is going in a totally different direction than it was previously.

Speaking to ComicBook, the star of Preacher promised fans that series will more closely follow its comic origins in season two.

“It’s going in a very different direction,” Cooper revealed.

“I think they were very clever to lay the foundations of who these people were and the world in which they existed and inhabited before. We know now it could be as crazed and manic and as ludicrous as the comics are. Now with the introduction of these larger-than-life, peculiar characters from the comic, they can go as far as they’d like. I think that not holding back and that carefree idea of a storyline going anywhere is what makes this particular season so exhilarating.”

For those of you unfamiliar with Preacher, the original comic was created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The story follows a preacher named Jesse Custer after he becomes bonded to a supernatural creature known as Genesis. The being, whose powers rival that of God, sends Jesse on a journey to find the heavenly creator. Jesse travels around the U.S. with his former girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vampire named Cassidy to find God, and the trio takes on various supernatural missions during their extended road trip.

Cooper is not the only actor who feels Preacher’s tone has made a total turn in season two. Ruth Negga, who plays Tulip, told ComicBook the same. “It's basically like reading the comic book, I suppose, with their road trip and shenanigans and hijinks that they get up to,” the actress said about season two.

As for Joeseph Gilgun, the actor said his character Cassidy create a new dynamic with Jesse and Tulip with Preacher’s new season. “I can tell you the dynamic filming really changed. Obviously, new place, new crew, new vibe. The first two weeks there was just a f***-ton of filming. It's gone from being stationary to now constantly being on the move. I think that's going to be the case every single season.”

While Preacher begins its sophomore season later tonight, many are still wondering about the fate of some of season one's most memorable characters. This is particularly true with Eugene Root/Arseface, who grew into a surprising fan-favorite in Preacher's first season.

According to Ian Colletti, who brings the character to life on the show, the goal has always been to make audiences sympathize to Eugene, despite his unique cosmetic characteristics.

"I think the thing especially with playing this character Eugene," Colletti revealed to ComicBook, in an interview that you can watch above, "was just wanting to make him very human and pathetic and grounded."

The actor expressed his hope that Preacher's regular viewers have been able to see the nuances to Eugene that are beyond skin-deep.

"The first thing people see when they see a trailer or a picture of the show or something, they see Arseface and get this surprised reaction." Colletti explained. "But I hope that fans of the show and people that are coming in to watch every week eventually don't really see him for the prosthetic, but see him as a character. And and often surprisingly empathetic and relatable one."

Neverthless, Eugene is set to endure some pretty surprising circumstances in Preacher's sophomore season, with the character having previously been banished to hell.

"The last we saw Eugene - the real Eugene, not Jesse's projection of him - was when he was sent to hell. We've already established that hell is a very real place, and Eugene was sent there. And there will be consequences for that. He's gonna have to deal with a lot of that this season."

Fans will have to see exactly how Eugene/Arseface does when Preacher Season 2 premieres June 25 at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.

Showrunner de 'Preacher' sobre la 'Perversa y Absurda' búsqueda de Dios de la Season 2
Por Josh Wigler - 26 Junio, 2017 7:00pm PT


[Warning: this story contains spoilers for the first two episodes of season two of AMC's Preacher, "On the Road" and "Mumbai Sky Tower."]

"Find peace."

Who knew two calming words could yield such violent results? Certainly not Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), the wandering holy man imbued with the powers of Genesis, a divine entity that speaks with the Word of God. Season two of AMC's Preacher sees Jesse and his fellow traveling companions — trigger-happy girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and blood-sucking vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) — channeling the preacher's power in a quest to find God, who has abandoned his post in Heaven for as yet unexplained reasons.

In the process, they find Fiore (Tom Brooke), a down-on-his-luck angel turned hotel magician, who has hired a literal monstrosity from Hell called the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) to assassinate Jesse and Genesis. Cassidy convinces Fiore to call off the hit, using nothing more than almost three hours of drug use and heaping helpings of charm. But Jesse's power screws up the whole deal, as he offers those two divine words as a command unto Fiore: "Find peace." The fallen angel's interpretation of those words leads him to not only keep the Saint's killer contract in place, but to commit suicide as well, permanently killed at the Saint's own hands.

Heavy, right? There's certainly a lot to meat on the bone (and meat on the ground, thanks to the copious scenes of violence) in the first two episodes of the new season, which aired on AMC across two nights as a special premiere event: main character deaths in the case of Fiore, a massive new force to be reckoned with in the form of the Saint, a complete overhaul of the show's structure as it takes to the road and leaves season one's small town of Annville behind. And while many if not most of the story beats are unique to the show, the second season of Preacher feels more spiritually linked than ever before to its comic book source material, which was created by writer Garth Ennis and the late illustrator Steve Dillon.

For more on the two-part premiere, showrunner Sam Catlin talked to THR about killing Fiore, unleashing the Saint of Killers, turning Jesse Custer's search for God into a literal journey, and more.

Even though the first two episodes of season two feature characters from the comics, the events themselves are all-new for the show. But there's still a sense of channeling the spirit of the original work. Exiting season one and heading into season two, what elements from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion's comics did you aim to emphasize or lean on more to further distill what it means to tell a Preacher story?

First and foremost, it would be Jesse. Jesse's drive last year was largely an internal one, almost a theological one — the search for God in himself, and sort of redeeming himself through becoming a good preacher. None of that is part of the comic. I think we were excited to get to the point when Jesse isn't looking for God in the abstract; he's looking for God in the horizon, or down the road, or at a bar. That seemed to us the part of the comic that we were excited to get to: basically a manhunt, a god-hunt.

It gives the show a propulsive quality that maybe didn't exist in season one, given that you were in Annville for the whole year. This year, it looks like you're truly taking the show across America.

That's one of the things that was so exciting about the comic when I read it: the scale. But it's also what made me initially wonder if we could even make the show. There's this sense of globe-trotting, of a road show. They're definitely out in the wide world now. They're in New Orleans, which in a way could not be any further away from Annville. They're in a big city. With Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy, whatever qualities of themselves were being kept in check by having a day job, which in Jesse's case was being a preacher, all of those limits have been taken off now. All three of them are now back in their natural environments: chaos, debauchery, drugs and drinking. It's not like they shied away from those things too much in the first season, but now they're just in the city of sin there.

You mentioned how when you first engaged the comic, you were wondering if a show would be able to tackle the road trip quality. How did you solve that obstacle heading into season two?

Obviously, or maybe not so obviously to some of the comic book fans, there's just no way we were going to be able to create a narrative where we were in the south of France in one episode and San Francisco in the next. We had to dig into each one of these places along the way that they stop in and still give the show that epic quality and that sense of even though they may be in New Orleans for an extended stretch, it still has that sense of movement and searching and going into unfamiliar worlds. We really, really stressed in season one that we wanted to ground the show in a familiar and almost archetypal small-town America setting with familiar characters that people could identify with and recognize. Now, with the benefit of being in a place like New Orleans, and the benefit of Jesse actually looking for somebody called God, it's created so many opportunities for us to just make the world that much more Preacher and that much more perverse and absurd and foreign.

Speaking of God, the late great Tammy from She She's tells Jesse before she dies: "You're going to shit yourself when you meet him." That's a pretty high bar for the almighty, whenever we get to meet him on the show. How do you plan on clearing it?

Well, he's probably going to have to shit himself, I guess! (Laughs.) We think of God, at least in the writer's room… we've talked about him a little bit as kind of a Keyser Söze, this mythical character who is real. People have seen him, or people know of people who have seen him. But he's still larger than life, almost a mob boss. We want Jesse to find him, but we're also a little worried about what's going to happen when he does.

The Saint of Killers is an active force on the show now, after first appearing in flashbacks and hellscapes last year. He's described as "a beast straight out of Hell," and even Jesse bristles when he hears the Cowboy's name; he's heard of the Saint through ghost stories. The Saint is an exciting character to have in the mix, but a challenging one as well, given how powerful he is. Can it almost be limiting in some respects?

Yes, the Saint of Killers is in a lot of ways the hardest character to write, in the sense that… especially since we removed the ability, initially, for reasons we'll delve into as we go, that [Jesse's] Word doesn't work on him.

Right, which is a departure from the comics.

It's a difference from the comics. We felt that if Jesse could use the Word on him, does that diminish the Saint? How is the Saint the ultimate and perfect choice as an assassin for Genesis if Genesis can work on him? So we made a conscious decision, at least initially, that the Word wouldn't work on him. It leaves us with a force of nature, a Terminator. Jesse is in a way defenseless from him, at least in terms of his obvious powers. He's going to have to use his wits to escape him. Later on, that's not always going to work. He'll have to find another method for how to deal with the Saint. But it's a very challenging character. It's also a really fun character. It's very fun to have this character we've seen now let loose in the 20th century; this pitiless force just laying waste to everything in his sight. We're very much in our hero's point of view about the Saint, that he's somebody on their heels, he's somebody who's coming, he's somebody who's just over the horizon, he's somebody they're escaping from. But as the season goes on, we'll learn more from the Saint's point of view. We're going to learn more about his past, more about his own relationship with God, more about his own life before the fateful journey into Ratwater, and more about the deal he struck with DeBlanc [Anatol Yusef] and Fiore and what he gets if he's able to kill Genesis and Jesse.

Speaking of Fiore, "Mumbai Sky Tower" sends him out the door in grand fashion — multiple death scenes, an epic drug interlude, even a complete makeover as the Amazing Ganesh, with plenty of heartbreaking beats to boot. It's a great episode for Tom Brooke, and killing Fiore marks the end of an era of sorts on Preacher. How did you arrive at the choice to move on from this character, to fully end the legendary friendship of DeBlanc and Fiore?

It was a very painful decision, to be honest. I'm a huge fan of Tom Brooke, and Anatol as well. It was very hard to kill off DeBlanc last year. And then Fiore was just as difficult a decision we made. We had a plan for him. The reason why we loved the idea of him being on his own was this idea of him as Starman, experiencing the Earth and its pleasures and temptations and disappointments. He would be the ultimate immigrant, in a lot of ways. We were going to have that story play out over many episodes. But then as we started talking about other elements of the season and other stories we wanted to tell and other stories we were going to bring forward that we haven't even done yet, it felt like we were short-changing some of those other stories. So we decided to make it a little bit of a one-act play or a short story, and try to condense it into one episode. In Preacher, you can die, but it doesn't mean it's the last we've seen of you. We all love Tom so much as a performer, and even more as a person. So we have some plans. We have some plans to resurrect, if not his character, then his persona at some point down the road.

Fiore brings up the big question of what happens to angels when they die. I don't know that even the comics have an answer for this, despite killing off more than a few angels along the way. Do you on the show have an answer for the question?

Absolutely. All of the questions we ask, it's only in Garth and Steve's world of Preacher where you can ask questions like that and hope to answer them. Absolutely, there's ample opportunity for us to go to Angel Heaven or Angel Hell.

One of the most compelling aspects of the Fiore story is how it relates to Cassidy. The drug bender works as a distilled example of what it's like to be Cassidy's friend: he makes you fall in love with him, then he breaks your heart and leaves you behind to pick up the pieces. In Fiore's case, he can't pick up the pieces at all. Was that a conscious decision, to show the full scope of what it means to let Cassidy into your life?

Exactly so. To me, Cassidy's greatest super power is one of… "conviviality," let's put it that way. He was able to get Jesse to open up to him in that first minute in the jail cell. There's something about Cassidy where he's a great listener. You really trust him. And yes, most people — as we'll learn more and more, especially as this season goes on — the people who trust him usually end up regretting it. It's a double-edged sword with Cassidy.

Preacher Q&A — Dominic Cooper 'Jesse Custer'
Por Adam Bryant - 25 Junio 2017


Dominic Cooper, who plays Jesse Custer on AMC’s Preacher, discusses why Jesse has become more reckless with his power, what he thinks of the Saint of Killers, and having “Come on Eileen” stuck in his head.

Q: What has it been like for you filming the show “on the road” this season? Do you think Jesse is different now that he’s freed from his responsibilities in Annville?

A: He’s freed from them, and I think he’d like to escape and keep moving. He’s relaxed and happy to be with his friends, and with a sole and specific purpose in his life that he has not had for a long time – one that he thinks deserves the fight and the search. He’s constantly tormented by the demons of his past, but I think it’s relieving to get away from a town where he failed. He’s running away from the realization that he is extraordinarily useless and not great at preaching.

Q: Jesse encourages Tulip to get into the car chase with the cops. Do you enjoy seeing him let out his dark side more?

A: It’s great, but it’s a constant battle for him. That’s the real him – the smile as he fights, the enjoyment he gets from the danger. He’s a criminal, and he tried very hard to suppress the criminal aspects of himself. Now, he’s completely protected by this power, and I think the ugly side of that will emerge. He doesn’t quite know what this is, and he thinks he’s on a mission that is wholeheartedly good. But actually he chooses to do all these dangerous things he shouldn’t be doing because he’s completely protected by this power that he doesn’t understand.

Q: After everything that happened with Eugene, are you surprised that Jesse is using Genesis for “fun”? Is he being reckless?

A: He is reckless. He starts just throwing this new power around and every so often, you see he’s a kid who hasn’t learned. You see people change when they have power in their work or in regards to money. People do change more often than not. That’s what he’s dealing with. … I’ve been thinking about this, and it’s outrageous that he’s not on a mission to get Eugene out of Hell. I know that deep down, there’s guilt [but] Eugene is not at the forefront of his mind. He doesn’t know how to achieve that, but he should really be determined to help him and get him out of that place.

Q: Even in the midst of that huge fire fight with the Saint of Killers, Jesse remains pretty calm at first. Is that arrogance or just not knowing what’s after him?

A: It’s all of those things. He’s comforted by the knowledge that he’s all-powerful, and he thinks he can stop him. But there’s a tiny moment when he first sees the Saint of Killers, and I wanted a different reaction. I thought, “He should be in awe of this man and of this entity and this person.” But now nothing can compete with him because he’s protected. He doesn’t realize the true damage that the Saint can cause. It’s arrogance. Jesse is quite arrogant. I’m discovering that more and more.

Q: What is going through Jesse’s mind when he finally gets a look at the Saint of Killers and realizes Genesis doesn’t work on him?

A: The moment Jesse says, “stop” and he doesn’t stop, he’s in deep trouble. [Laughs] But this is a transformation in his life. This is all good, however dangerous, because remember, he loves the danger and the violence. Jesse knows this is an accomplished fighter, but he doesn’t yet know the full power. He’s just seen a gun battle, which was pretty horrific, but in that moment, the realization kicks in that he’s in a tricky situation.

Q: Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy get “cozy” in bed together on Jesse and Tulip’s first night together. Although Jesse doesn’t know everything about that triangle that the audience does, how awkward is that for him?

A: I doubt Jesse’s ever been in bed with another man – certainly not with Tulip – and Tulip and him have shared a bed for many years, growing up together. He hasn’t known Cassidy a great deal of time, so it makes him very uncomfortable, but that’s the instinctive reaction. Is it better than being alone in that church for all those months when he left her?

Q: When Jesse and Tulip are finally able to be together, she makes it into a bit of a challenge, asking Jesse to knock the bathroom door down. Why do you think their relationship is so charged by danger?

A: That’s what they grew up knowing. That was their life and how they ran around together. That’s the trouble they used to get into together. They were immersed in a life of no beauty and care. It was hard-edged and scathing and volatile and when you get used to that, I suppose the other things are mundane. It goes against everything for them. They can’t function like that. They don’t get it.

Q: We learn that Mike had a past with Jesse’s dad. Do you think Jesse values those people in his life who can remind him of his father?

A: I think it gives him some comfort in just knowing a man that knew his father, but he’s not proud of who he became or who he was or what he’s done. It’s quite painful.

Q: How does Jesse interpret the information Tammy gives him about God being a fan of Jazz?

A: In the actual moment, he thinks she’s lost her mind and that the whole thing is ridiculous and a waste of time. But because it all stems from Mike, there’s a certain level of trust in the information and he believes him. He’s forced her, with his power, to speak these words and if God were to like music – and why wouldn’t he? – it would be the complexity of Jazz. So, it makes no sense but it makes perfect sense. He continues to follow it through and chase the idea. He’s seen lots of weird stuff. [Laughs] I don’t know that there’s anything that can shock him or prohibit him from believing that it’s a path worth walking down.

Q: Do you ever wish Jesse’s wardrobe changed? Or do you like the simplicity?

A: Sometimes a new outfit, if it’s right, can be another element that can be quite effective. The costume does help, and the moment I put it on, it comes to life. It’s so distinctive, and it’s perfect, but I’m in 90 degree heat in tight jeans, boots and a black jacket. [Laughs]

Q: How many times did you have to sing “Come On Eileen” during that car chase shoot?

A: More times than anyone should ever sing that song in their life! And I’ve already sung that song a lot in my life for the last 30 years at New Year’s Eve and Christmas. We were trying to think of other options, but it was the perfect song for that scene, and it just plays so strangely. It gets stuck in your head.

Preacher Q&A — Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg -Executive Producers/Directors-
Pot Adam Bryant - 26 Junio 2017


Executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who directed Episodes 1 and 2 of AMC’s Preacher, discuss upping the action in Season 2, why the Saint of Killers is so scary, and why they’ll always have a soft spot for Fiore.

Q: Taking what you learned from Season 1, what was your chief creative goal coming into the second season?

Evan Goldberg: When we made the show originally — based off just how many comics, including Preacher, had different artists — we wanted to make the seasons and different locations have different vibes and create a different kind of cinematic language. So, we always planned on having the first season have one vibe, a little more mysterious and brooding, and the second one amp up the action and the road trip element, and kind of really embrace New Orleans, where we end up.

Q: Is it difficult to amp up the action and the crazier aspects of the show but still keep things a bit grounded? How do you find that balance?

Seth Rogen: Who knows if we do? [Laughs]

EG: I mean the balance of action is budgetarily something you just have to deal with. We’re always limited in how many fights we can have, but I feel like we got a much higher amount of cool action and a lot more tense situations into this season than the first one, because the first one kind of answered the basic mystery of “What is this all about?” and the second one has us on a mission to find God, and we are on that mission.

Q: How do you think having that mission changes Jesse Custer as a character?

EG: It definitely focuses Jesse and puts his eye on the prize, possibly to the deficit of his relationships with other people. It certainly starts to become strenuous throughout the season.

Q: How did directing these two episodes compare to the ones in the first season? Since you weren’t setting up the world as much this time around, were you able to dive into the crazy more?

EG: It was incredibly fun the first time, but [this time] the team was established and … the speed at which everyone worked and how well they all understood each other really enhanced the experience. And it just felt like whatever the opposite of putting on a wet swim trunk is. Putting on a nice pair of socks? [Laughs]

SR: The scripts are really different and the themes are really different. The show is kind of always throwing new stuff at us directorally. It’s one of the reasons it’s one of the most fun things for us to do because really, it’s always pretty different. There were no massive shootouts [or] weird ‘70s car chases last season. There’s more in the first few minutes of this season that’s different than what we did at all last season. So, it’s just always fun because we get to try new things.

Q: What was more fun: the highway shootout with the Saint of Killers or killing Fiore over and over again?

EG: There will always be a soft spot for the Fiore story. The Fiore story was just so weird and not something I think anyone would ever be able to predict what happened because of how unbelievably weird it is. For me, that holds a place in my heart.

SR: That was a lot of fun to do. We enjoy doing non-verbally driven sequences, so it was cool to do a long sequence that really had no dialogue — that was kind of just visual joke after visual joke.

Q: What about Cassidy and Fiore’s day of debauchery?

EG: That was just fun to film because those kinds of things you always have no time whatsoever to film them. If you’re doing some kind of crazy montage you have to run around like maniacs just getting shot after shot after shot because you need so many to make a good one. It’s always fun to film something like that, and it’s fun to film Fiore and Cassidy together because they have kind of a magic, brotherly bond.

Q: What are some of the other challenges of doing those big set pieces?

SR: Sometimes it’s just logistical things, like for the vending room scene, the actual vending machine was not at the same place as the actual hotel and things like that. So there’s just little, logistical things like that you have to wrap your head around at times. But it was mostly just really fun, honestly.

Q: We can already see in Episode 2 that Tulip is becoming less and less enthused about this road trip. How do you think this mission to find God will impact the relationships of our core trio?

EG: The emotional journey of the three main characters becomes pretty tumultuous over the course of this season. They start to find some fractures in their fellowship.

Q: What do you think having that triangle at the center of the show does for Season 2?

EG: Someone can always relate to one of the three characters. [We have] three big, main characters who have different agendas. It allows you to keep things feeling energetic and threatening at all times because different teams can team up and different dynamics can form over the course of the season.

Q: We know you guys love the Saint of Killers. What’s it been like seeing him wreak havoc in the modern world?

SR: That was actually maybe the most challenging part of the season was finding how to integrate him into the real world, because as soon as he’s not in Western town, you kind of have to reimagine his presence a little bit. But I think it turned
out really well, and he’s very scary. He killed a lot of people. [Laughs]

Q: What aspects of the comic are you most excited to see brought to life this season?

EG: For sure, Herr Star.

SR: For sure. It’s a little different [from the comic] as to how it all plays out, but the cornerstones are the same.

Q: Now that you’re adapting the comic more directly, are you still in disbelief that this fantasy from your youth is actually coming true on TV?

SR: It’s crazy. It’s very exciting. We feel very fortunate, more for this than our own families. [Laughs]

EG: If you liked the first season, you’re going to get more of the same but with more action. And if you didn’t see the first season, you should see the first season, and then see this one!

Preacher Q&A — Tom Brooke 'Fiore'
Por Adam Bryant - 26 Junio 2017

Tom Brooke, who plays Fiore on AMC’s Preacher, discusses why Fiore is so lost without his friend DeBlanc, why he dislikes Jesse so much, and his favorite part of dying again and again.

Q: Given that almost every character from Season 1 was wiped out in the finale, did you expect to return in Season 2?

A: If I remember, he was seen in the last episode just sitting on his trunk, having come back from Hell. My visa was for two years, so I thought the likelihood was that I might get a little sniff of Season 2, and I was very happy that I did. I was just really grateful that they gave me [this] episode, really. They’ve all been really supportive… so it was just lovely to have an episode where I got to do so much stuff, loads of different emotional scenes, and a really nice storyline. It was a lot of fun.

Q: Fiore is clearly lost without DeBlanc. What was it about their relationship that he misses so much? Is part of his depression also knowing he’s stuck on Earth with no way back to Heaven?

A: They got on really well. We don’t really see much of their backstory, but it just feels like they’d been on a journey, and they’d enjoyed each other’s company. Fiore’s a bit of a lost soul, and I think he really appreciated having someone there to take control or guide him. There’s definitely a brotherly thing that came out. Maybe they’re just two people who really got each other the moment they were put together for that particular job. Earth is not somewhere he wants to be. He was an architect, so he has a scientific approach to stuff. I think with being in Heaven, he’s somebody that looks down on people in general but to be forced to come down and mix with mortals is the last thing he’d ever want to do.

Q: How much fun was it shooting Fiore’s endless death montage? How did those scenes compare to the hotel room fight in Season 1 where Fiore and DeBlanc keep dying and reinvigorating?

A: One day, there were three of us dressed identically and a fake head of mine. There were some lovely moments like that. They got my stunt double, Bryant Burnett, back from Season 1. We got on very well for that first season, and it was nice to hang out with him a bit more. That was a real highlight. It was different because the way we talked about shooting it was that it was a montage. The idea is such a good one – that he’s desperate to kill himself. In a way, when someone comes up with an idea that good, you really don’t want to do too much because it’s more about the sequence as a whole, working. The acting side of it is sort of taken out of my hands because I just had to die loads of times and not overdo it. [Laughs] I think it’s brilliant.

Q: Why do you think Fiore rejects outright Jesse‘s request for Fiore to call off the Saint of Killers?

A: When we see him at that stage in his story, his sadness has turned into frustration and his frustration has turned into anger. I feel like he’s lashing out and wanting other people to feel his pain. If life is as difficult for him as it is, why should anyone else’s life be any easier? And he’s not prepared to lift a finger to help him. He’s still smarting from Jesse using the word of God on him. That’s been a bit difficult to take. In a way, perhaps it’s a way to get back at him for that.

Q: Do you think Fiore genuinely likes/appreciates Cassidy? Does that day with him remind him of what he’s lost?

A: If you are given drugs of that high quality, a friendship is going to develop. I guarantee you, whether that person is human or animal or anything. This is the first time in his life he’s been off his face. With Cassidy, he would be the perfect person to do all of that stuff with, I would imagine. I think he spent a day where his brain has been opened, and he experienced emotions that were dead in him or not even experienced before. It’s the quality of the drugs and the charm of Cassidy that totally wins him over. There’s a line where he says, “I know what you’re doing.” He’s not an idiot. He’s aware that Cassidy’s trying to get him high to get information out of him, but what’s he got to lose? He’s stuck in this Groundhog Day situation. Why not do a speedball or two and see if it perks him up?

Q: Did you have a favorite moment from Fiore and Cassidy’s debaucherous afternoon?

A: I think that was my last day, so it was a lovely day to finish on. We were doing a bit of basketball in the room and there was a great moment where the camera was going around 360 and we cleared the whole room but obviously you’ve got people behind the camera. The camera was coming around and [a camera guy] was about to be in the shot and he leapt across this massive four poster bed in this incredible move and landed on the other side just as the camera swept around and faded out the shot. That was a great moment. It was so professional and insanely acrobatic at the same time. It was just brilliant. Basically, it was a day of hanging out with Joe [Gilgun], and I’ll always take a day of hanging out with Joe. He’s lovely.

Q: Fiore says he will call off the Saint but then he doesn’t. Why does he back out of it?

A: I think right up until the moment he does it, he’s not going to do it. But if he tells the Saint where they’re going, he’ll permanently die and he’ll be okay. That’s too big a thing to pass up even with the brief friendship he’s experienced with Cassidy. He’s in too bad a place to pass up the one opportunity he will ever have to get out.

Q: Was it also an unintended consequence of Jesse’s using Genesis to command Fiore to “find peace”?

A: I don’t think Jesse’s quite thought that one through. It’s a touching sentiment, but it’s too open-ended. It’s too all-encompassing. It allows him many options, so I think he should have been more specific with his choice of commands there. [Laughs] That’s definitely going to come back and bite him in the ass.

Q: How did you feel about how Fiore goes out?

A: I like being surprised by acting, so if there’s a sad death – and this might be a sad death – I wanted him to go out with a bit of a smile on his face like he’s innocently happy and he’s okay. If that reads, it will be bittersweet and it might be touching. I love the storyline of the episode and it was such a great way to go. It was a really lovely thing to play.

Q: Do you have a favorite memory from being on the show?


A: The wrap party for the pilot was actually the first day that I hung out with Dominic [Cooper]. I knew Ruth [Negga] a little bit, but it was the first day I met Joe as well. That was a great night. We went to a drag night/catwalk party and ended up drunk in someone’s house. It was really lovely. It’s a great bunch of actors, and I had a lot of fun with them.

Julie Ann Emery habla sobre el causar problemas en ‘Preacher ’y ‘Better Call Saul’
Por Ashley Bissette Sumerel - 03 Julio 2017


A new character is about to start causing trouble on AMC’s Preacher.

Julie Ann Emery makes her appearance as Lara Featherstone tonight on Preacher Season 2 Episode 3, “Damsels,” and it’s a role unlike anything you’ve seen her in before.

I recently spoke with Emery about her part on Preacher and why it’s a “worthy follow-up” to her character on another AMC series, Better Call Saul.

As a fan of the show already, Emery couldn’t pass up the opportunity to audition for a role on Preacher.

“The show itself is right up my alley. I watch most of what’s on AMC. There’s a quality of television on AMC that’s attractive to me. But also I am a sci-fi / supernatural fangirl. I was a big fan of Season 1. I thought it was really beautifully done,” Emery said.

So when Emery had the chance to be a part of Preacher, she gave it everything she had.

“When I auditioned for the role, I really went after it,” she admitted.

“It’s such a brilliantly written role for a woman, and that doesn’t come along all that often,” she continued. “She’s one of the best the Grail has to offer. She’s uber dedicated [and] very focused. She is willing to do anything for her cause — and that means anything. She will use her sexuality, violence, whatever. There is no line that she won’t cross to serve the cause. She’s wildly committed, and she has a wide range of tactics in her bag.”

“It’s thrilling to play her. I am just in actor heaven right now. She is a really thrilling character to play.”

In fact, this is exactly the sort of character Emery had been looking for, and she compared her to another character she played recently.

“I’ve gotten to play some really wonderful female characters over the last five years, but this character in particular was kind of… she’s a worthy follow-up to Betsy Kettleman on Better Call Saul, and I’ve been looking for that for a while. Sometimes as a woman in the industry, you end up auditioning for very kind of milquetoast roles, and Featherstone is not that. She’s actionary in her own right — the opposite of a lot of what the industry writes for women. I knew that immediately, and I knew I wanted it. Frankly, I wanted it so badly that I thought, ‘there’s no way I’m gonna get it.’ I thought I was just gonna blow it for myself entirely,” Emery said.

Of course, Emery was also excited to join the show because of the people involved.

“Sam Catlin is from the Breaking Bad world; I was a big fan of his writing already. He’s our showrunner. And Seth Rogan — I see all of his comedies. I think he’s wonderful.”

Emery said she didn’t know the comics before she began working on the show, but she started reading them to prepare for her role as Lara Featherstone.

“I got into them during the audition process,” she said.

“I sort of scanned through for the Featherstone bit, and now I’m deeply into them. They’re like reading this really wacky, screwed up novel. They’re wonderful!” Emery laughed.

“I wish that I had the comics on my radar earlier in life. They’re really, really well-done. There’s a lot of depth there.”

Emery enjoyed working on AMC’s Better Call Saul as well, and she was a fan of Breaking Bad before being cast on that show.

“It’s always a thrill to be cast in something that you’re a true fan of already. I mean, I thought Breaking Bad was just the best that we ever had on television,” Emery said.

“Sometimes, some of our really high-end television has a pretentious air to it, and Breaking Bad never had that,” she continued. “I just thought it was so brilliant. So to walk into that universe was such a thrill, and it’s the same with Preacher. There’s such a level of excellence there.”

With that, however, comes a bit of pressure.

“You want to live up to the material, because you’re working with all of these wonderful artists. That’s definitely true in the Preacher world too,” Emery noted. “We have some wildly talented people on both sides of the lens.”

Emery also spoke a bit about what it’s like behind the scenes of Preacher, including the welcoming atmosphere.

“Dominic [Cooper], and Ruth [Negga], and Joe [Gilgun] are very welcoming and fun — and genuine, nice people. The staff is wonderful. The crew’s very happy,” she said.

“Everyone is working really hard. Everyone is very dedicated, but there is a great focus on the work and a nice, fun atmosphere as well. I’m not sure if that’s influenced by New Orleans,” she laughed. “New Orleans is such a fun town to be in, but our crew in particular is a very happy crew. It’s a pleasure. And you know, Featherstone is a bit of a dive off a cliff for me as an actor, and it’s a relief to be in that atmosphere.”

Filming in New Orleans is also significant to the story itself. “New Orleans plays such a giant role in Preacher this season,” Emery explained.

“New Orleans is a character unto itself, and no matter where you look in New Orleans, there’s a feeling that there’s a little bit of up to no good going on, which really serves our show very well.”

Playing the part of Lara Featherstone has given Emery the chance to expand her acting skills in a new way. “The Featherstone in the show has added dimensions to her from the comics that can be challenging at times — in a great way. My skill set as an actor is being pushed in all directions, almost to its limit. It’s really wonderful.”

“It’s such a mashup of tone and genre,” she continued. “You know, it’s very pulpy, there’s some great amazing humor in the show to play, but there’s also wildly dramatic stuff to play. At it’s beating heart, the show is a human drama. We push the edges in terms of genre so much.”

Another show Emery enjoyed watching before she joined the cast was the short-lived ABC series, October Road, where she played Christine Cataldo.

“I was a fan of the show before I was on it because I loved the tone of it. It felt like my world,” Emery said.

“My character was just hell on wheels, you know? I mean she was just there to cause trouble for everybody. I like playing women who cause trouble for everybody, apparently. Featherstone causes a lot of trouble. Betsy Kettleman causes a lot of trouble. I like these women,” she laughed.

Emery also shared one specific memory from filming October Road.

“I had a lot of stuff with Laura Prepon. I’m very short, and she’s much taller than me. I remember there’s that scene where she punches me in the face, and I had on these giant heels because they really wanted us sort of eye to eye with each other. I walked through that yard on apple boxes. They taped apple boxes together, and I walked on apple boxes with my heels. And they were kind of wobbly and wonky,” Emery recalled.

“I think we need shows like that right now. We went through kind of like an anti-hero moment, which served us up some great television, but we kind of abandoned that world that October Road fits in so well,” she said.

“I found that show very relatable. I recognized people I know on it. I recognized myself in it. I really loved it.”

Emery mentioned at the beginning of our chat that she was a “sci-fi / supernatural fangirl,” so of course, we had to talk about some of her favorite shows from that genre.

“I’m wildly into Game of Thrones, and I read the books before the show was ever on the air, which I recommend. If you’ve not started watching Game of Thrones, read the books first! I loved the books. The books were crack for me. I mean, I could not get enough of them,” Emery said.

“My favorite of all time is Battlestar Galactica, no question,” she continued. She also named Firefly as a favorite. “I must have watched those thirteen episodes at least, I don’t know, fifteen times.”

Be sure to catch Julie Ann Emery on Preacher, airing Mondays at 10/9c on AMC.

Arseface (AKA Ian Colletti) sobre el interpretar la horrible historia del origen de Eugene se convirtió en una experiencia extra-corporal
Por Steve Greene - 3 Julio, 2017 10:00 pm


Just into its second season, “Preacher” has been no stranger to tragedy. The AMC adaptation of the Garth Ennis comics series has touched on lost pregnancies, revisited parental abandonment and unleashed a citywide explosion that wiped away most of the first season’s recurring characters.

But Monday night’s episode, “Damsels,” may have seen the show at its most heart-wrenching. Watching a frightened Eugene attempt to replace the violently displaced brains of his high school crush Tracy Loach — and have the same shotgun be the source of Eugene’s infamous facial scar — was a twisted answer to one of the show’s biggest looming questions.

It’s a scene that Ian Colletti’s been preparing for, ever since getting the part. “As an actor, so much of your time is spent off camera in your preparation, meditating on your backstory and filling in the puzzle pieces. It’s very rare that to be able to have the opportunity to then act out that backstory. It was very intense and very graphic on the set, blood strewn everywhere. I had this strange out-of-body experience,” Colletti said to IndieWire.

Fans of the comic knew early on in the show’s run that the introduction of the Tracy character meant that the origins of Eugene’s distinctive scars would be deviating from the source material. (In the comics, it’s Eugene’s own failed suicide attempt, not Tracy’s, that’s the original catalyst.) With this foundational change in the character’s origin story, Colletti turned to “Preacher” showrunner Sam Catlin for some extra guidance.

“Halfway through Season 1, Sam had given me a summary of what they were thinking Eugene’s backstory would be in our universe of ‘Preacher,’” Colletti said. “Having been informed of what this story was, it really informed a lot of the decisions I made the first season. So to be able, this season, to have the blood on my hands and looking at her head blown off was a very interesting and rare opportunity.”

The bedroom sequence was filmed during production on the rest of the episode and only took a single shooting day to complete. It’s the first time that audiences have had a chance to see Colletti without anything covering his face. Instead, it was his scene partner Gianna LePera’s turn in the makeup chair, who was fitted with a practical wig contraption that reduced the amount of post-production blood and viscera spurting which had to be added digitally later.

As much as Colletti relished the opportunity to help give viewers the missing piece of this teenager’s sad accident, he took some strange comfort knowing he’d be going back to playing scenes with his character’s distinctive prosthetic face. “I was relieved on a practical end, with not spending hours in makeup and being able to actually eat throughout the day. But when we had to go back to the scene, I was nervous because I felt so naked,” Colletti said.

After building the fundamental emotional building blocks of Eugene, Colletti had to revert to a time before any of what the show had been planning out for an entire season’s worth of episodes. “The voice of the character is all a direct result of this event, even his body language. In the first season, he’s very much hunched in the posture he takes up,” Colletti said. “For me, he’s become this monster of the town. Insults are thrown at him in every direction so he’s inverted into himself, so that becomes kind of relevant in his body language. So when you take those things away, what do you really know about a character?”

While that opening scene touched on the tragic, the episode’s bookending time with Eugene delivered something far more terrifying. The audience sees him walking through Hell, the result of his accidental banishment. As he’s sucked back into the present, Eugene tentatively feels out his new surroundings — and meets an unwelcome neighbor in the process (as shown in the clip above).

That corridor down through the evil abyss might be enhanced, but as a performer on set, Colletti still felt the scale of this horrific world his character had been thrust into.

“It’s a massive setup on this massive stage,” Colletti said. “David Blass and the guys that designed it are incredibly talented and it’s absolutely incredible just walking through it. I’m not sure how much I can say about what we see of it, but the scale is impressive and it’s just the beginning of a very exciting world that we’ll explore throughout the season. It’ll look even better as it airs, the way they’ve shot it and cut it together, even down to the coloring, is unique and interesting.”

For Colletti, the appearance of Adolf Hitler is an example of how the show is able to turn what would be shocking on other shows into something strangely matter-of-fact. “Only in ‘Preacher’ would that be something that’s almost expected,” Colletti said. “At this point, by the time we’ve gotten there, it’s like, ‘OK. Well, this makes sense.’ If you’re gonna be in Hell, you might as well have the worst of the worst.”

So where can fans expect Eugene to go as this season progresses? Colletti explains that this is a season where his isolation isn’t a coincidence.

“Throughout the first season, I think Eugene’s relevance as a character was really directly related to Jesse in the sense that Eugene would come to Jesse with these feelings of anguish and feeling like God has abandoned him,” Colletti said. “This season, Eugene’s focus becomes more on him asking these questions of himself, questions that Jesse had to ask himself the first season: ‘Can people change? Can you move beyond your past to forgiveness, redemption?’ These are the themes that we’ll see Eugene explore and he’s gonna be exploring them in Hell.”

“Preacher” Season 2 airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. on AMC

- Ruth Negga Revela la Sorprendente Inspiración Punk Rock para su Papel en 'Preacher' (etonline):

Spoiler: mostrar
Ruth Negga Revela la Sorprendente Inspiración Punk Rock para su Papel en 'Preacher'
Por Zach Seemayer - 07 Julio, 2017


In AMC's gothic action dramedy Preacher, Ruth Negga stars as the hard-drinking, tough-as-nails Tulip O'Hare, and despite the delicate nature of the flower she shares her name with, Tulip proves time and again she's not someone to be messed with.

The actress recently sat down with ET during a press junket promoting the second season of the acclaimed series, where Negga opened up about the surprising real-life icons who inspired her performance -- and revealed how her character is a far cry from how Tulip appeared in the comic book series Preacher is based on.

In the comics, Tulip is a skinny, blonde white woman who is getting her life back on track after kicking her drug habit. In the TV series, Tulip bites a man's ear off while fighting him in runaway car careening through a field and then kills him with an ear of corn. Then, she builds a bazooka out of tin cans and duct tape and uses it to shoot down a helicopter. This takes place all in the series' first episode.

The differences from comic to screen were immediately apparent, and Negga -- who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar earlier this year for her role in the biographical drama Loving -- said the radical departure from the character in the comics was a conscious choice.

"They wanted to sort of update Tulip," Negga tells ET of the intentions behind the show's creators, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. "The comics were written in the '90s and I think they all wanted to make her more present and more modern. Which is important, especially with the conversations we have about women's place in comics, and women's place in TV and movies."

In recent years, there has been a major (and long-awaited) resurgence when it comes to strong, independent bad-ass female heroes -- from the recent blockbuster success of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman to Charlize Theron's scene-stealing performance as Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. Negga explained how Tulip fits in among the groundbreaking female heroes who came before.

"This is a woman who denies all projects and refutes any sort of traditional definitions of what a woman in an action piece should be," Negga, 35, shared. "So I think that was just a necessary kind of update."

However, when it came to fleshing out Tulip, the actress admitted that she looked to real-life female icons for inspiration.

"What influenced me was sort of the punk era, and that kind of androgynous nature of all these musicians, who refused to be one thing or the other -- they're kind of slippery," Negga said. "David Bowie, for example, was a huge influence. Siouxsie Sioux, Poly Styrene, all those women -- Debbie Harry playing CBGB's -- they kind of intelligently cut through a really male, seemingly aggressive scene. I just love what they did."

"I like it when you kind of refuse to be boxed in by your gender, and by what people assume," she added. "I mean, can you imagine what people thought when they first saw Bowie? I mean they must have been astounded."

For Negga, the importance many people place on preconceived notions of gender have long been a point of contention.

"It's always troubled me that one must play with certain toys as a child because of how you came out of the womb. Or you must dress a certain way, and it signified this or that," she said. "I like not being contained by that."

When it comes to Tulip, there's nothing about the former-criminal-with-a-strong-moral-compass that ascribes to any particular expectations. She's involved in a relationship with Jesse Custer -- the eponymous preacher, played by Negga's real-life boyfriend Dominic Cooper -- but the romance isn't her defining motivation. And Tulip is never afraid to throw down or stand up for what she believes in.

Among other sources of inspiration, Negga said she's always felt connected to women like "Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt. [They had] that sort of energy that people [describe as] masculine, by why is it masculine? Because I'm sure women have had that energy too."

Ultimately, the actress explained that her character's traits, motivations, personality quirks and human flaws were informed by the challenges and relationships she's experienced and the revolutionary men and women she's idolized as ground-breakers.

For Negga, Tulip is a character who has "been amassed through a lifetime of not liking boxes."

Preacher airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC

- Preacher Q&A — Ian Colletti (Eugene “Arseface” Root) (amc):

Spoiler: mostrar
[size=150]Preacher Q&A — Ian Colletti (Eugene “Arseface” Root)
Por Adam Bryant 11 Abril 2017)
[/size]

Ian Colletti, who plays Eugene on AMC’s Preacher, discusses sharing a cell block with Hitler, finally shooting a scene without his prosthetic face and the irony of Eugene going to Hell to become a bad person.

Q: Eugene is in Hell! Although we saw a version of Preacher‘s Hell last year, was this what you expected it to be?

A: We kind of established last year, with the Saint of Killers, that Hell is living your worst memory or the worst day of your life over and over again for eternity. So, I had an idea that it would look like that for Eugene and had a pretty good guess what that day would be, but throughout the season this year, the universe of Hell has very much expanded and it’s not just people living the worst day of their life over and over. It’s a real place and it’s pretty scary. … It was absolutely incredible. [Production Designer] David Blass and the guys that designed that are absolutely brilliant. It was incredible to work on those stages because it was just down to the last detail. It was so well put together and as an actor, it helped to immerse myself in that world.

Q: What was it like shooting an entire sequence without your prosthetics?

A: From a practical point of view, it was wonderful to not have to get in hours early and to be able to eat lunch with everybody else was a great thing. But as an actor, I felt suddenly very vulnerable and I had to re-look at what I really knew about Eugene. I emote my face in an extreme way to read subtly through the mask, I do this slurred voice for the character like it is in the comic and even his body language in the first season is very hunched over. Now, in this moment, this is before any of that took place and I had to take a hard look at what I knew about the character. I didn’t have the voice and the body language and this is before the traumatic event that started this domino effect of all these things that’s come to fruition. I tried to maintain that essence of purity and morality in approaching this same character in a very different position in his life.

Q: The last time we spoke, you joked about never getting recognized by fans without the makeup. Do you think you might get recognized with the cast now?

A: Yeah! I guess we’ll be able to tell once it airs, but I think there’s a good chance.

Q: The scene with Tracy is pretty gory. What was it like to literally get your hands dirty in the brains and blood?

A: It was pretty crazy. Lots of blood, lots of brain. The effects and the blood on this show is always crazy. It was definitely an interesting scene to shoot. We had a good bit of fun doing it.

Q: It’s not a shock that the scene with Tracy is Eugene’s worst memory. But what aspect of it do you think haunts him most?

A: I think one of the great things about Eugene is also one of his biggest vulnerabilities and what leads him to be so hard on himself. He always sees the best in others. I think as an audience, we see Tracy and we see a very vain and selfish girl, but he’s in love with her and doesn’t see those characteristics. When he goes into kiss her and she blows her head off, it’s very obvious that it’s not his fault from an outsider’s perspective, but I think he very much takes responsibility for it. In his mind, I think he feels he’s the reason Tracy’s dead — and in a way, he killed her — because he takes so much and puts it onto himself. As an audience member, I think you can see it’s not fair for him to do that to himself, but he does and that’s his journey throughout the second season in Hell. He has to come to grips with if he deserves to be there, and that’s the question we ask.

Q: What was your reaction when you learned that Eugene would be hanging out with Hitler?

A: [Laughs] That crazy idea came from Evan Goldberg. At the end of last season, he mentioned to me that this was an idea they were toying with – that if we were going to be in Hell, we would have someone in Hell, and who’s on the top of that list. I thought it was perfectly Preacher. Eugene definitely finds himself in some interesting positions this season with some larger-than-life characters.

Q: What do you think Eugene makes of Hitler’s hell? Is it surprising that Hitler’s worst day is so…tame?

A: He tends to see the best in people. Adolf Hitler is clearly not a great guy and is notoriously one of the most evil human beings in history, but Eugene [thinks he] sees a certain goodness in him or thinks maybe he’s changed. I think seeing Hitler’s worst Hell will affect Eugene’s perception of Hitler as their relationship continues.

Q: What does Eugene make of the other characters in Hell? He’s always had a guilty conscience, but does he feel he belongs in a place with all of these people?

A: Eugene’s perception of himself is different than the audience’s perception of Eugene. He really does believe he’s guilty and that is his journey. By being in Hell and surrounded by all these people, will it help him realize he doesn’t belong here and that he was dealt an unfair hand? Hell is a dark and tough place and it’s an “eat or be eaten” world. I think being in an environment like that is going to force Eugene to adapt and evolve as a character.

Q: Why do you think Eugene joins in on beating up Hitler?

A: He has to make certain alliances to be able to survive in a place like Hell. Whether or not he feels he deserves to be there doesn’t change the fact that he wants to make it. He’s going to have to make some choices. He kind of becomes the moral compass of the show, and that’s going to be tested this season as he comes to face certain characters and plot points that will make him question his own identity and make him adapt for better or worse. I think his journey to Hell will certainly help him realize certain aspects of himself as a character and I definitely see the irony that it takes him going to Hell to realize who he is and where he fits in the world.

Q: Has it been difficult being so separate from the rest of the cast this season?

A: Speaking as someone who’s become really good friends with these guys, I was a little bummed not to be working with them as closely as I was last year, but as far as the character goes, I thought this season was interesting. In the first season, his relevance to the characters very much coincides with Jesse. He comes to Jesse with these big moral questions and it serves a purpose for Jesse to end up asking himself these same questions. Eugene becomes a catalyst for Jesse’s own self exploration. In this second season, Eugene’s storyline is more about him and he has to ask himself these questions about his past and who he is and who he wants to become.

Q: What are you looking forward to fans seeing from the rest of Eugene’s journey?

A: I think what we’re going to see this season is very important in Eugene’s evolution as a character and I’d like to think there will be some justice this season for Eugene as audience members see the truth about who he is. And I hope he’ll see the truth as well. There are major moral questions asked this season by Eugene himself and by other characters he’s surrounded with, but at the end of the day, I’d like to think that people will empathize with him further.

Preacher Q&A — Ruth Negga 'Tulip O’Hare'
Por Adam Bryant 18 Julio 2017


Ruth Negga, who plays Tulip O’Hare on AMC’s Preacher, discusses whether Tulip and Jesse’s relationship is really “’til the end of the world,” how she really feels about Cassidy, and her love of bazookas.

Q: Were you thankful that Tulip’s intestine-aided gas siphoning in Episode 1 was done off camera?

A: I wouldn’t mind doing it on camera, to be honest, because it wouldn’t be real. [Laughs] It’s blood and gore, but as an actor, you know it’s not real so it’s much easier doing it than watching it.

Q: When did you find out that Tulip was secretly married? How, if at all, did that revelation impact the way you thought about your character?

A: It was when I got the script. Everything is under wraps. You get little tidbits about the arc, but I found that out when I read the script. It didn’t really surprise me because I think anything is possible with Tulip. She has so many secrets. I think a lot of what she does is for self-survival. She’s a woman who thinks on her feet and her decisions are really about self-preservation. I think that was one of those decisions. She’d just come through this trauma [of losing the baby] and she was looking for some sort of stability and balance in her life. She chose this particular person [Viktor] because he could offer that whilst she’s still a part of this world that she can’t seem to disconnect from.

Q: We know Tulip likes the dangerous side of Jesse, but she doesn’t like Jesse using Genesis, and she is incensed at the idea of him killing Viktor. Where does Tulip draw the line?

A: She does actually genuinely care for Viktor. He truly loved her and there’s a tenderness there. She’s not ruthless. There’s no psychopathy there. She’s a genuine human being, and I think she sees violence as a means to an end rather than something to do on a whim. She’s not a punisher. There has to be a reason and I don’t think she sees it as [Jesse’s] place. It kind of diminishes and belittles her a bit to have him think that he’s some sort of knight in shining armor who’s riding in on a white horse to save her because I think she’s got this. She’s seen evidence of his temper and he’s quick to use his fists. It doesn’t surprise her, but what surprises her is his arbitrary use of Genesis to solve dilemmas. I think she resents that. She’s keen on leveled playing grounds. There’s a fairness to her when it comes to certain situations. I think she also resents this idea of absolute power – that you can use power to control personal situations rather than his quest for God. He’s always justifying Genesis because he’s using it for the greater good, and I don’t think she sees it as a good enough reason in this instance.

Q: In the flashbacks, we see Jesse and Tulip after the loss of the baby. Why do you think Tulip was able to move on when Jesse wasn’t?

A: I don’t necessarily agree with that. I think people deal with grief in very different ways. For her, this idea that they can just make a replacement life isn’t good enough. I don’t think it feels truthful to her. I don’t think she’s moved on. I think she thinks it will deepen the grief and the fracture and you can’t just plaster over something like that. She doesn’t want to revisit the nature of that loss. It’s too painful for her. I think she wants to try to find a way to not revisit that. She doesn’t necessarily have a plan, but the only option is to find some sort of semblance of their life before Dallas. I don’t think it’s done with huge self-analysis in a distancing way. I think it has to do with coping mechanisms.

Q: Why do you think Tulip lied to Jesse about the birth control? How hard do you think it was for Tulip to go along with the ruse for so long?

A: It’s very hard for them to communicate. They’ve lost that communication and intimacy. Sometimes when something traumatic like that happens, this distancing happens and it feels like a very hard bridge to cross. They don’t seem to be on the same page anymore. They seem to be speaking different languages and that’s never happened to them before. They’ve always had an intimacy and a way of speaking to one another and she feels that’s lost. The only thing she can do is leave. That seems to be the only option.

Q: Given the awful things they say to each other in the flashbacks, how do you think they made it back to each other?

A: Obviously, Tulip returns to Annville, looking for him to do a job with her, but I think there’s this hope that they can reconcile and she hopes to lure him back to their pre-Dallas life. But she’s no fool. She realizes that there’s this fissure that’s opened up and I think that’s a cloud hanging over their road trip. She doesn’t have many other options. She’s on the run from – I assume – many people, which is her reluctance to go to New Orleans. Jesse’s now her only family. You see them try to restart that communication, but they’re both in very different places. Sometimes it’s hard to get the attention of someone who’s fully invested in something else, which is his God mission.

Q: Tulip admits that she and Jesse are bad for each other. Does she ever wonder if it’s futile for them to try to be together “’til the end of the world?”?

A: When your options throughout your life have been minimal, you take the best of a bad bunch. She does love this person. She spent her childhood with him and he looked out for her. I think she does see that that person is still there. The thing is that they’ve always needed each other in some kind of way. What worries Tulip more and more throughout the series is that he may not need her. Maybe she needs him more and he’s not always there. That’s a very hurtful and shocking realization for someone who’s very independent and autonomous. That need for someone becomes an Achilles’ heel.

Q: While the flashbacks demonstrate why Tulip would want to keep the secret of her and Cassidy from Jesse, it also shows how dangerous it is to lie to Jesse. How does she walk that tightrope?

A: She’s always had to be a quick thinker as you do when you’re an assassin. You really have to choose what the best option is. You can’t let your conscience get in the way of that because it’s about self-preservation, but she’s also trying to protect Cassidy because she’s seen what [Jesse] can do to people like with Reggie and what could potentially happen to Viktor. Tulip is very good at compartmentalizing things and if she sees that a revelation can make things worse, she’d rather lie about it. That’s an interesting concept – is it necessary to always tell the truth in certain situations if it protects people?

Q: Do you think Tulip is treating Cassidy as a sidekick, as he suggests? Does she not appreciate him as a friend?

A: I think she feels very fondly for him. In Season 1, we see that she hates people being treated unfairly and she thinks Jesse has treated Cassidy unfairly. [Cassidy’s] shown loyalty and she appreciates and admires that loyalty, but I don’t think she would ever acquiesce. I wouldn’t say she’d use the word sidekick, but he’s definitely not in charge. [Laughs] She’s very adamant about that, but they heavily rely on one another.

Q: What was the more interesting/fun weapon: an ear of corn or the wedding pager?

A: I really like the bazooka! The bazooka remains my all-time favorite. I really enjoyed that scene and the idea that it’s arts and crafts. She’s very crafty and that was so funny to me. It’s hard to beat a homemade bazooka that you make with two kids. [Laughs]

Preacher Q&A — Graham McTavish 'The Saint of Killers'
Por Adam Bryant, 24 Julio 2017


Graham McTavish, who plays the Saint of Killers on AMC’s Preacher, discusses the fun of being an unstoppable killing machine, how Jesse exploits the Saint’s Achilles’ heel, and why the Saint might become scarier than ever.

Q: This season you’ve caused explosions, ripped out tongues, thrown a grown man through a vending machine and repelled machine gun fire. Is there anything better than playing a killing machine like the Saint of Killers?

A: [Laughs] It’s worryingly satisfying, to be honest. All those pent-up feelings of frustration that one has during the day like being stuck in traffic – when you get to play a character like the Saint of Killers, it’s like therapy that you’re getting paid for. It’s very good. The vending machine guy was great. I just loved his performance. It’s a small little cameo, but he really nailed it. It was great to interact with him. The shootout on the highway plays into all of the dreams and fantasies one has when growing up, playing Cowboys and Indians. And the fact is, nobody can kill me. It’s a win-win.

Q: Even so, the Saint does have a softer side as it relates to his family. How do you think he’s he been able to hang onto that one piece of himself through all those years in Hell?

A: It’s love that keeps that little bit of hope and tenderness inside him. Even thinking back to Episode 2 when I killed Fiore, it’s an act of kindness. He’s releasing Fiore from the very Hell he also inhabits. He wants to escape and he understands Fiore’s motivations. When he kills Fiore, I wouldn’t go as far as to say it’s an act of love at that point, but it’s certainly not an act of cruelty. It’s interesting that the show explores how I do these appalling things and I am extremely violent with a huge body count, but the thing that motivates me and has kept that fire going inside of me is the love for my family and the desire to be reunited with them. That’s something anybody can relate to. If you were separated from your family and you knew there were certain things you needed to accomplish to get to them, I think anybody would do pretty much anything to achieve it.

Q: Is the Saint surprised when Jesse zeroes in on his Achilles’ heel in Episode 6?

A: With the very nature of an Achilles’ heel, you’re not surprised because you’re not even aware that it’s your Achilles’ heel. [Jesse] just pushes the right buttons with the Saint. At that point, I don’t think [the Saint] is concerned with manipulation or trickery or if Jesse will fulfill his side of the deal. He just sees this as his absolute best opportunity to get what he needs [to go to Heaven] and when he’s offered that, he doesn’t think of the potential consequences. It’s a moment that he quite literally lets his guard down and then, the tables have turned in lots of ways. The “bad guy” – if you want to call me that – and the “good guy” of Jesse Custer are flipped. I really think there’s a moment there in Episode 6 where the audiences’ sympathies are with the Saint and not with Jesse. Jesse becomes the rather cruel character in that particular relationship.

Q: Why do you think the Saint even lets Jesse plead his case and manipulate him rather than just blowing him away?

A: There is a point where you think that as soon as he sees Jesse, he’ll just kill him. That is, after all, what he’s been trying to achieve. But despite the fact that he’s been in Hell and all these terrible things have been done to him, he is human. He has that human side to him and that side is curious. That’s what we’re like. If somebody comes up to us and says, “I know you’re thinking this thing but if I tell you this other thing, maybe that’ll change your mind,” you’ll listen to them. I have him at my mercy. He’s not going anywhere. I could kill him at any moment, and I don’t think the delay in doing so is out of savoring the moment. There’s just no rush, in the same way that the Saint walks everywhere to achieve his goals. He doesn’t run. There is something much more disturbing and menacing about that and that’s what plays out in this scene.

Q: How surprised is the Saint when Genesis suddenly works on him after he has a soul? Does he instantly regret playing into Jesse’s hands?

A: Oh yeah. He knows. As soon as the word of God works on him, he knows he’s made a fatal error. He’s walked right into that trap. It’s really the first time you get to see the Saint afraid. He’s afraid of what’s coming, of the consequences of what’s just happened and that he won’t get into Heaven. … There is a change that comes over him once he’s eaten that soul and he can see the future, the good, the possibilities, the family and then the rug’s pulled out from underneath him. It was great fun to do.

Q: The Saint then manipulates Jesse to keep him from sending him back to Hell. After everything he’s learned about God and Heaven, what does the Saint think he has to gain by staying on Earth?

A: I think it was important for him to make it clear to Jesse that they are essentially the same. It’s not just, “I’ve got a little bit of your soul. You’re coming with me to Hell as well.” It’s, “You and I are not so different. You think you’re doing this great thing, but you’re not.” It is a threat, but he’s also welcoming it. He has lived through Hell, so I don’t think he’s afraid of that at all. The only thing he’s afraid of is not being with his family. He says to Jesse, “Do it. Do it. Let’s go. I’m taking you with me.” I think he’s motivated by making it clear to Jesse the consequences of what he’s done.

Q: For now, that means being in the back of a truck in a lake. What can you say about what the Saint is thinking of in terms of revenge?

A: Something that was impersonal – Jesse was simply a barrier for getting what the Saint wanted, which was Genesis – has now become personal. By doing what he did to him, Jesse has fundamentally changed their relationship. Once he’s in that armored car, with the time that he has to think and the confinements, I think something happens in there that changes the way he views his journey going forward, particularly in relation to Jesse. Now, he doesn’t just want to kill Jesse to get to Genesis. He wants to punish Jesse. And that’s a big change for him.

Q: Do you think he’s gained new respect for Jesse as an opponent, despite being bested by him this time?

A: I think that’s a fair point. It’s like a high stakes chess game between those two characters. He is going to respect Jesse as an opponent and not underestimate him. I think if he’s given the opportunity – which he hopes he will have – he will not underestimate him again. I think he does look at him as a worthy adversary whereas other people are not.

Q: Has the New Orleans humidity made it difficult to constantly be covered in so many layers of leather?

A: I was okay with it. My coat was lighter this season and they did something to the back of my vest so that it breathes more easily, but at the end of the day, I’m wearing a woolen costume, a leather coat, a hat, a big wig, boots, and carrying ten pounds of metal strapped to my waist. So, you’re going to get hot. The heat wasn’t necessarily the hardest thing. It was the sword. [Laughs] Even sitting down is a problem – not that the Saint really needs to sit down much because he’s not getting tired or going to have naps – but from a practical point of view, that was a bit of a pain in the ass.

Q: How have you enjoyed working with the cast regularly this season and seeing your character in the modern world?

A: It’s been less lonely! [Laughs] The Saint really was the Billy No Mates of the world of Preacher and now I get to interact more with Dominic [Cooper] and Ruth [Negga] particularly. That human interaction opens up all sorts of possibilities because up until that point, any guest star that came onto the show always had a short experience with me. I just killed them. In terms of him arriving in the modern world, he’s not particularly distracted by the modern world. He’s got such a singular purpose so he’s not going to be taking time to be like, “Oh, what are these things called ‘cars?’” He’s just going to be hunting down that bastard that has Genesis. He does look at the TV, but he’s more interested in the person on the TV than the invention of television. At no point would he turn to Jesse and say, “How does this work? There’s a little man in the television!” He’s just like, “Who’s this dick that’s talking?” And the smashing of the television was very satisfying!

Spoiler: mostrar
Preacher Q&A — Pip Torrens 'Herr Starr'
Por Adam Bryant - 31 Julio 2017


Pip Torrens, who plays Herr Starr on AMC’s Preacher, discusses the responsibility of taking on a fan-favorite character, whether Starr’s depravity is all for show, and why he sees potential in Jesse.

Q: How familiar were you with the Preacher comics before you got the role of Herr Starr?

A: I was not familiar with them at all. In fact, the world of graphic novels was one that I was virtually ignorant of. I was aware that there’d been great advances in the stories that they deal with … but I certainly didn’t know about Garth [Ennis] and Steve [Dillon] writing Preacher. After I met Garth, it was very interesting to realize the amount of dedication and the depth of the themes that they are trying to address. I read the volume that Starr first appears in and I subsequently read all six of them, and they completely blew my mind.

Q: It’s pretty uncanny how much you look like the character. Is that a happy coincidence?

A: [Laughs] Sam Catlin told me the story of how they were, at the beginning of the year, wondering about Starr and what qualities they wanted him to have. Everyone at that point had seen The Crown, which I was involved in playing Tommy Lascelles, who’s this behind-the-scenes guy who pulls a lot of strings without being seen. Someone said, “You know what? We need someone smart like that Tommy guy in The Crown. Who’s that?” They looked me up and found a picture of me with the wig and mustache on, and one of the writers said they’d have to shave my mustache, but didn’t realize I was in complete makeup. They Googled me again and saw a picture of me with a shaved head, which is how I normally have it, and they all did a double-take. When I went to meet Sam and Evan [Goldberg], I could see they were being polite, but they were also looking me up and down. It was quite funny.

Q: Herr Starr is a character beloved by fans of the comics, particularly by the show’s creative team. Do you feel pressure or responsibility in the way you bring the character to life?

A: I’m trying not to feel pressure because I do feel a huge responsibility. With meeting Garth and talking to this very erudite man about a series he started 20 years ago, you’ve got to be aware that you’re accountable to a huge pre-existing fanbase out there. My experience of meeting fans at conventions has been a really pleasant education in how well-informed people are who follow long-running shows. But I think people who follow long-running shows based on graphic novels are a separate department. They will know – if not more – about the history of the character than I do.

Q: Was it hard to keep your casting a secret?

A: The basic rule of thumb was that I initially could say absolutely nothing and then we got to a point where it was officially announced. Some of the fan sites had speculated as to who they might be seeing. My rule that I stuck by was, “Don’t say who you are, even though it’s pretty blinding obvious.” And certainly, don’t say what plot developments there might be because the writers are so selective about the storylines they take from the original material and what they hold back. That’s a really fascinating thing – seeing what they choose to prioritize and what they’ve got in their back pocket.

Q: How would you describe Herr Starr?

A: In some ways, he’s a monster in terms of how he behaves with other people and his cohorts, but in moments where he opens up as much as he ever does, he admits he’s dissatisfied with the world. He’s a pragmatist, if you will, and it tends to express itself in psychopathy and megalomaniac behavior, but he himself is accountable to other forces. He certainly feels his universe isn’t quite as it should be and it makes him angry and decisive. He certainly doesn’t have regrets, but he acts in a violent way and that’s how we’re introduced to him. That makes him fun as well. Fun to watch and fun to play.

Q: From the flashbacks, we can see that Herr is initially less than enthused about the Grail’s work, but has that changed over time?

A: I think from the moment of his first interview with Saltonstall, he had reservations about the Grail’s mission and it seemed to be underwhelming. He was thinking along the lines of nuclear warfare and he tends to think in very destructive and all-conquering terms. So, the idea that the Grail could have a mission to nurture something and bring something to fruition is probably something he’s never been comfortable with.

Q: Do you think Herr actually cares about rooting out false gods or does he view the Grail as a means to an end to act out his darker desires?

A: He’s the right man for the job. He’s the head of Samson Unit and doesn’t have ultimate authority. That’s the point. That’s quite clearly made in the books when it’s time to sketch out the hierarchy in the Grail and you see paramilitary aspects in the Samson unit. I think he has absolutely no compunction about tidying up. He’s a hit man in a way. He’s ridding the world of false messiahs.

Q: When Herr kills Saltonstall, it’s clear he’s nobody’s right-hand man. Are there levels of power he hopes to rise to beyond the Samson unit?

A: He is biding his time and he has perhaps found that increasingly difficult to do. We’re not shown many episodes from the 20 years of his recruitment to the time he becomes aware of Jesse. I think his skepticism has grown and he’s gone on committing these atrocious crimes in the name of the Grail, but he’s looking for something and didn’t quite know what it was until he meets Jesse. He’s intrigued by Genesis and of course, you would be because that seems like a genuinely biblical event. He doesn’t know as much as Jesse knows about where it’s come from but he’s keen on finding out.

Q: We get multiple looks at Herr Starr’s depravity in the training montage. How fun was that to shoot? Do you think he’s actually twisted, or just being smart in using those methods to his advantage?

A: I think he doesn’t know himself, perhaps. Dissatisfaction is his key thing and he’s quite happy to tell people as long as they have something to supply him with in return, but most people don’t. It was enormous fun to do that day. It was all one day and it was my very first day on the show. The first shot I did was the mass nude scene where we’re all standing there completely naked and I’d been in special effects for an hour, getting those prosthetic nipples put on and the chain put through them. That was a real “in the deep end” moment. This is such a crazy show that, in a way, I’m glad we start with the craziest moment so far in the script. It was great to do.

Q: By the end of the episode, Jesse is on Herr Starr’s radar. What can you tease about the dynamic between those two men this season?

A: I think Starr feels attracted to Jesse because of his power, but also because he senses depths in Jesse that Jesse doesn’t want to admit to. We know, even as viewers, that sometimes Jesse shocks himself with the things he can do in terms of physical violence. He has depths of anger and rage and therefore, potential in Starr’s eyes. Starr isn’t just a straightforward foot soldier. He does have connections to dimensions that we might not expect.

Q: Many actors enjoy playing villains instead of the hero. What about Herr Starr do you find most enjoyable?

A: [Laughs] It’s just so therapeutic to play bad guys. He says appalling things. Just being allowed to say dreadful things out loud and to behave in an appalling way – and that’s your day job – you feel cleansed. It’s sort of like a spiritual sauna to sweat out all this stuff you had in your system. It’s a joy. And the writing has just been fantastic and more than I could have hoped for. Especially in Episode 7, I was just giggling inside over everything I had to say. They give him such good dialogue in terms of undercutting what other people say. He doesn’t do regular conversations. He’s pragmatic and ruthless in conversation as well. That’s enormous fun because you don’t often get that in evil characters because they need people most of the time, even if only to manipulate them. Starr just deals with people before he can just tell them to shove off.

Preacher Q&A — Sam Catlin, Executive Producer
Por Adam Bryant - 01 Agosto 2017


Sam Catlin, executive producer and showrunner of AMC’s Preacher, discusses introducing Herr Starr, why Hell had to feature Hitler, and why Jesse and Cassidy are headed for a real confrontation later this season.

Q: What’s been your favorite aspect of seeing Jesse & Co. on the road this season?

A: Jesse has a clear external drive. He has someone he’s looking for that can be found. It’s not just God in the abstract. It’s not just the intellectual or theological idea. There’s a guy he’s looking for. We love leaning into that. We love being in New Orleans. It feels like the perfect Preacher location. It’s sort of corrupt and haunted and it’s a deeply religious and sinful town. That’s been amazing. They’re out in the wild world where so much more is possible.

Q: When you knew you were going to Hell, was Hitler your first choice to put on that cellblock? How do you think that story upends expectations of who that guy is?

A: I mean, who would be my second choice? [Laughs] What’s Hell without Hitler? For us, the intention is: Is Hitler the Hitler of old or has he turned over a new leaf? That’s the conundrum that Eugene is faced with – if Hitler is to be trusted or not. It’s not a question we really answer until perhaps the end of the season.

Q: The Jesse-Tulip–Cassidy triangle wasted no time rearing its head, particularly during Jesse and Cassidy’s heated stand-off in Episode 5. Do you think they can remain close friends or will this volatile streak between them grow?

A: I think it’s more the latter than the former. Those two are headed for a real confrontation. By the end of the season, I think things will be a lot worse for them before they get better.

Q: Speaking of Episode 5, that episode revealed a lot about Jesse and Tulip’s past. Do moments like that stand in the way of their “till the end of the world” love story?

A: It’s like any couple, really. There are little betrayals and mistrusts and slights – except theirs are obviously on a much bigger scale. That feeds a lot of the volatility between the two of them. On a certain level, they don’t think they deserve each other. It creates a lot of mistrust and doubt – and great sex.

Q: When did you decide Cassidy was going to have a son? How does Denis help you show off a new side of Cassidy?

A: I always liked the idea that Cassidy could have dozens of children scattered throughout North America and Europe. For all of Cassidy’s charm, he’s the quintessential, well-meaning dead-beat dad who misses 10 birthdays and shows up with two ponies. It felt like another window into showing Cassidy’s historic unreliability and something of a foreshadowing. People who know Cassidy over time don’t like him. He gives Jesse a warning. He tells Jesse of how he tells people he’s not a good guy and they don’t seem to listen. He’s a fan-favorite and we all love Joe and Cassidy, but I think as the season progresses, we’ll see a side of him that won’t be surprising in hindsight but hopefully will be disturbing.

Q: How did you come up with the idea for the “soul ID,” and Jesse’s clever con to neutralize the Saint of Killers, at least for now?

A: We didn’t want the Word to work on the Saint in the same way it did in the comics because it felt like Jesse would be able to neutralize him so easily. So, we asked ourselves the question of why it doesn’t work on the Saint and came up with the idea that it doesn’t because he’s absolutely without soul. He’s had his entire soul removed and Genesis needs some element of a soul to work and affect people. It allowed us to write Jesse’s backstory and maybe he knew a little bit about people selling their souls as a family business and saw it as an opportunity to pull a fast one on the Saint. But what he doesn’t anticipate, obviously, is that the only soul that’s going to work is his own.

Q: What was it like to finally introduce Herr Starr? What can you tease about the role he, Featherstone, and Hoover will play in the second half of the season?

A: We’ve been waiting to introduce Herr Starr, Hoover, and Featherstone ever since we started. We couldn’t wait to get to them, so it was a thrill to finally introduce him in a big way. He perhaps doesn’t know what he wants to do with Jesse besides kill him, but I think his plans will change. His and Jesse’s destiny will be intertwined throughout the rest of the series, hopefully.

Q: This season has been even crazier than Season 1. What’s the hardest part of amping up the action and supernatural elements, while also trying to ground the story?

A: It’s keeping the human element of these three characters. What do they want? What do they need from each other? What are they missing? What drives them? And then also, having the world be crazy and over the top and all of that without one stealing from the other. That’s the trick of the show and what we as writers, actors, directors and designers have to try to always figure out. That’s what they pay us for! I feel like by the end of this season, we understand much more about what this world is and what it can do.

Preacher season 2: Entrevista a Dominic Cooper
Por Dan Cooper - 07 Agosto, 2017


Preacher’s second season, airing weekly on Amazon at the moment, has really taken the show to new heights with some great character beats, more frenetic fight sequences and some startling revelations to boot. As the show’s titular character Jesse Custer, Dominic Cooper has been at the heart of it all. Adapted from the wildly popular series of 90s comics, Preacher is gaining acclaim for adopting the wild, renegade humour of the comic books whilst being unafraid to depart significantly from many of the source material’s plotlines. Den of Geek sent its own D.Cooper, (albeit a somewhat less talented and handsome one) to chat to Cooper about fisticuffs, mullets and the childhood trauma of having a surname that rhymes with ‘pooper’...

So, you’ve really been throwing yourself into action sequences of late. Your upcoming film, Stratton releases soon, which casts you in a Bond/Bourne type of role. I’m looking forward to that.

I hope you enjoy it.

And of course, you got to work with Simon West, director of the legendary Con Air.

Yeah, he’s cool.

When it comes to action sequences on the small screen, such as in Preacher, we’re seeing real improvements in action elements such as fight choreography. In this area TV is having to raise the bar somewhat.

It is having to. And it’s struggling because there’s a only handful of people that are astonishing at doing it and the guy that we’ve been working on Preacher has been incredible, and he loves doing everything in one sequence.

There’s a great fight scene in the New Orleans mansion in episode four. That was all done in one single tracking shot.

Yes, that was all one take and the one with the van, with the white guys in suits in episode three, that’s pretty much one take as well. And I ended up really loving doing them because you’re getting the scripts days before so you’re having to learn a lot of information and I was learning the choreography quite quickly. The fight sequences have a particular arc to them though, there’s a purpose to them, they’re not just violence for violence’s sake and I think that helps them to look incredible. And of course, Jesse’s meant to be a violent and dangerous guy who’s lived a very criminal life so it’s right that he’s able to take a lot of people down, it’s part of the comics and it’s certainly part of him.

He is certainly pretty handy with his fists. Both the comic version of the character and your incarnation share this seeming need for violence. In season two of Preacher we’re seeing Jesse choosing to use violence when it’s far from a final resort.

Yeah, that’s so true.

How do you think season two has dealt with that particular aspect of his character, looking for the violent answer first?

Well, I’ve not seen all of it yet, and it’s funny, but having done it but only seeing it now, I’m becoming aware of just how unpleasant he is. I’ve just seen episode four where he beats the crap out of Reggie, his friend in the flashbacks. Jesse, and it just comes out of nowhere, suddenly snaps and there’s more to that side of him, I think he’s constantly trying to quell this bubbling self-hatred and anger towards the world, in relation to his feeling to blame for the death of his father, so he's like a tightened coil just ready to go at any moment and it’s only going to get worse. As he becomes more arrogant, you see it happening, he thinks he’s the righteous holder of this entity, this power and he begins to totally believe in this idea that he’s the chosen one, and with that level of power and strength, I think he’ll become more violent, unpleasant and difficult to be around.

He does seem somewhat self-involved.

Totally.

Especially in season two, he becomes quite brooding, often he’s oblivious to the pain of those around him. One thing I noticed from going back to the original books was that he had this ghostly John Wayne figure, like a conscience that would appear to him at his darkest moments and guide him, but your version of Jesse doesn’t have that. You’re much more alone.

Totally, and it makes him kind of unbearable. And it leads to the most kind of narcissism. He has no idea when his friends need help or when the love of his life, who is the most important thing in his world, needs him. It just shows how important this mission is to him, finding God, because of the last words that his father uttered before he was killed, ‘Jesse, much bigger things are coming for you’, that’s what he’s believed. And yet his whole life has been a bit of a nothing until ‘Wow, I’m meant to be the Messiah.’

A messiah complex? Is that what he’s developing?

I think so. I think that’s where they’re going with it, from the material I’ve got, I get that sense but it’s a really good point that you bring up, because there’s only so much people can bear, I think that he needs to be led in a different direction, to have someone hold a mirror up to him and him realise the error of his ways every so often. You do sometimes start to wonder why are those other two sticking around? (Laughs) But they do, because they all need each other so much.

As part of the creative process did you talk about including that kind of Godfather figure, that Obi Wan Kenobi guiding presence?

We didn’t actually. I think it’s very revealing though and a great point.

Of course, Jesse’s violent tendencies stem from specific events in his past and fans of the comics would have shuddered when he introduces himself as Jesse L’Angelle in episode six. At some point he also makes a reference to not liking swamps. Will we find out more in season two about Jesse’s past and the root cause for so many of his issues?

Something extraordinarily dramatic happens at the end, that you won’t believe could ever possibly happen. It shakes everything, it turns the whole thing upside down and that leads to the necessity of finding the past. I’m looking forward to nothing more than seeing that family who used to place him in that coffin. That’s the real heart of darkness, I think, from the comics, I found it poignant and they were frightening too. Just the mention of his family frightens Jesse.

Will seeing further into his past help to humanise Jesse perhaps, given his direction this season?

I think so, and that will be a really good thing. I think it’s necessary, I think it’s been a really interesting place to go with him and see this side to him, but I think to humanise him and bring him back from this very bleak place would be good.

Preacher was of course created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, two legendary British comic book creators who like other icons of the industry from that era, left these shores to go and work in the U.S. We’re seeing a similar talent migration in the film industry at the moment. The British comic book industry never really recovered from that talent drain. Should more be done to draw more talent like yourself back to homegrown UK film projects or is that wishful thinking? What could be done?

It’s a very difficult one because the money’s a problem here. I don’t know, it’s not like people have given up on it here, but people go where the work is. A lot of our writers are there at the moment. We still make the best TV here in the UK, we make some fantastic stuff, it’s incredible but everyone goes. Even the film industry over there (the U.S.) is suffering somewhat because the writers want to work in television because they’re given such scope and freedom within their medium, therefore the material over there, well, you go where the work is, but what can be done over here? I have no idea, we have great studios here.

Our facilities are amazing.

Yeah, it all starts with the writing, doesn’t it? If they’re lured over there because there’s more opportunity… maybe there needs to be more financial incentive, maybe the government needs to open more doors.

Like the French model?

Like the French model. Do the French model. Exactly that. Like Canal Plus where channels have to put revenue back into homegrown film. And they’re making some brilliant films.

On the subject of Preacher’s British roots, it’s often been said that American satire has always been sharper when viewed through a UK prism, whether it’s John Oliver on Last Week Tonight, the GTA games or movies like American Beauty. Some of Preacher’s most satirical moments in this season though such as the soul-selling are completely original and the sole product of an American writing team.

I don’t think they’ve ever had a problem doing that. This is a very interesting comic because these two guys were drawn to America, and Preacher was a result of Garth Ennis observing this place that was completely peculiar and like nothing he’d seen before. I clearly remember arriving in that country for the first time ever and it was unlike anything you know from here. It’s a completely new world. It’s interesting now that scene you mention, the selling of the souls was produced by an all-American team but the original content was an observation of a society, and I think that sometimes people from afar can do that better, it’s much easier to look at something you’re not so close to and understand it or see it for exactly what it is. It’s why foreign filmmakers who makes films about London often have a really interesting take on it. I think they can be satirical. Sam Catlin, the show-runner is very dry, very witty and very observant of the society that he lives in.

He of course produced Breaking Bad, which was also very observant of certain aspects of American culture.

Yes. And he and I talk at length about what’s happening there at the moment, in the midst of this lunacy that’s going on in the country. You can’t help but feel sorry for the people there whose environment has just turned into chaos and carnage.

Speaking of Sam Catlin, his involvement with both Preacher and Breaking Bad led to one of the show’s cooler intertextual references, where one of the characters is whisked away to a new life from the same spot that Walter White was too.
What’s your favourite easter egg so far in Preacher?


I’m a bit shit at realising them! (laughs) Someone always has to point them out to me. That one did use the same place though, that one’s really cool. Same van as well.

So as Jesse Custer and Walter White technically exist in the same universe, who’d win in a throwdown?

Jesse would win, wouldn’t he? He’s got super powers!

Do you think he uses his powers a little too liberally?

Yes, I think it’s another really bad aspect of his character. He uses it too much and he uses it in the wrong places but when people are desperate for his help and they really need it, he doesn’t use it. And then he gets on his moral high horse about when it should be used but he doesn’t have a clue. It’s bad and it becomes even worse. Have you noticed yet, that by selling part of his soul, it stops? Because part of him is missing, to use the word of God he’ll need to get that back because it isn’t working properly.

Can we talk about the hair in those flashback sequences? That mullet was the look Jesse sported in the comic books. Did you ever talk about doing the hair all of the way through the show?

That fucking hair. It was terrible! I wanted that hair all the way through. Thank fuck I didn’t! (Laughs) I wouldn’t wear that piece. If I grew it and could make it look good, I would, but they didn’t seem too keen on it. I mean, you can’t really be a man and have that hair now, could you?

(Diplomatically) I think the updated look works.

I did want to. I would have loved to have had the hair and a pair of tight, white jeans, exactly as he is in the comics.

Are we going to see the white jeans at any point do you reckon?

Yeah, I’m really trying to get them in. (Laughs) I’m really trying to get them in, in fact, I got them to buy a pair just so we could try them on. I’m going to get them in next season, if there is one.

Finally, as a fellow Cooper, you may empathise with this: I was always pretty underwhelmed as a kid that our coat of arms had barrels on it. It seems to me that three-headed dragons would have been cooler. What would you stick on the Custer coat of arms?

Barrels are pretty depressing, aren’t they? What would Jesse Custer have on his coat of arms? It’d be that skull wouldn’t it? That awful L’Angelle skull.

So what should we stick on the Cooper coat of arms then, if barrels aren’t up to scratch?

Did you know that Fassbender is the German equivalent of a Cooper? A Fassbender is a barrel maker. Have I just made that up? It sounds right. I don’t know what would be on our coat of arms, what do you think Cooper?

Erm… don't know? It rhymes with ‘super.’ So maybe…

It rhymes with ‘pooper-scooper’. Did you used to get called ‘pooper-scooper’? That used to be a big one.

Yeah. My friends used to sing it to the sound of Super Trooper by Abba.

Oh nice! (Laughs)

(sings) ‘Pooper-Scooper, life like a…’

Like a lump of poo. Perfect. (Laughs)

Which seems like a great place to finish. Thank you Dominic Cooper!

Preacher Q&A — Ronald Guttman 'Denis'
Por Adam Bryant - 08 Agosto 2017


Ronald Guttmann, who plays Denis on AMC’s Preacher, discusses Cassidy as a deadbeat dad, why Denis wants so badly to be a vampire, and his knack for playing French characters on AMC.

Q: How familiar were you with the Preacher comics or the show before you landed this part?

A: I was only familiar with the script of the pilot, which I had somehow read two years ago. I remember reading the opening monologue and being extremely impressed with it. I wanted to do the role of Dominic Cooper! [Laughs] I was impressed with the intense dialogue and it had this exotic and metaphysical dimension to it. … I was not familiar with the graphic novel until I auditioned for Denis. I didn’t want to be too influenced by that. I did research the history of New Orleans. That’s what excited me: where these people come from, why I’m speaking French, the history of this place…trying to imagine that I’m a real person and not a character.

Q: How much were you told about Denis from the beginning? Did you know going in that you were playing Cassidy‘s son?

A: After the audition, I wanted to know what I was getting into. It was a few weeks in Louisiana and I needed to know what I was going to be able to chew on as an actor. Sam [Catlin] gave me a call and he gave me the arc. I knew the whole arc of the story and that Cassidy is my father. It makes it interesting because it creates a whole relationship between us that’s not obvious at all and comes as a surprise. And of course, it has an emotional content, having been abandoned by his father, that gives me something to play and something that goes beyond just being a bitter old man in a house. It’s usually the father that’s disappointed in the son – and of course, that’s what people could think because I look like his father. It was like a reversal of roles.

Q: How would you describe Denis and Cassidy’s history? Do you think they were ever close?

A: It’s shown how I was born, the love that he had for me through music that he sang and the lullaby. These are the kinds of things that develop on the set. You have a script, you have the graphic novel and you have the actors doing the job. Joseph [Gilgun] is an extraordinary prodigy and an unusual character in life and that really transpires on the screen –his spontaneity, sense of language, rhythm, his heart. … My experience with him on set was a touching experience with him becoming more human and feeling a sense of compassion for me and trying to create a feeling of love. With all the resentment, you still feel deeply connected. You’re still of the same blood. I think we established that as the story progresses.

Q: Denis clearly isn’t warm to Cassidy when he shows up. Is he angry because Cassidy was an absent father or are there other reasons he doesn’t like the guy?

A: I think it’s the lifestyle of the vampire. You imagine that he’s always with another girl or a prostitute. I’m assuming that he has a lifestyle and it’s not something I respect. He didn’t turn out to be a lawyer or a doctor. [Laughs] He’s my father and I think of him as an alcoholic who smokes dope. … I remember working on that and establishing a certain kind of contempt for his ways.

Q: What does Denis make of Jesse and Tulip? Why do you think he goes along with them all crashing at his place?

A: I show my displeasure that I have squatters in my house, but I think Denis is enthralled either way. He doesn’t know what’s going on until the Saint arrives and all of a sudden, he picks me up and almost kills me. He tolerates them and they do keep him company. It’s probably a nice thing for Denis to not be alone. Nobody is doing anything bad. There are no orgies or loud music.

Q: Once Denis gets sick, there is definitely a change in Cassidy. Does Denis recognize that or does he feel it’s too little too late?

A: I see him caring and singing a song to me. My goal as Denis is to reach his heart and ask him to save me and do something for me, which we see in Episode 7 where I beg him to give me life. I think I do see his resistance crumbling.

Q: Given what he’s seen of Cassidy’s life, why do you think Denis asks Cassidy to turn him into a vampire?

A: You can be judgmental of someone because you’re envious. In a way, one could say Denis has been envious of his father’s lifestyle even though he thought he was using it badly. [Denis] wants to have a certain lifestyle. He still has an appetite. This is not the end for him. He wants women and he wants to live and to partake in the fun.

Q: In Episode 8, Denis pleads and pleads with Cassidy to bite him, even calling him Papa. In that moment, is there some fondness for Cassidy, or is Denis just trying to get what he wants?

A: It’s not a manipulation. I’m so desperate and I’m at the end of my rope. Sometimes you have no choice. It’s almost like he’s killing me and letting me die while he knows he has the medicine. It’s like Angels in America. They had the medicine for AIDS at the time and didn’t want to give it to anybody. You’re sitting on the drugs that could save the life of people, but you’re so selfish that you keep them and you don’t want to share it. Cassidy feels like he has those drugs for me, so to speak. He can actually give me health, so why should he turn me down? What are the arguments?

Q: When Cassidy sings the lullaby, does Denis think he has finally convinced him?

A: Maybe he’s putting me to sleep and that’s the end for me. There’s absolutely no way to find out what happens next.

Q: Before Denis, you were on Mad Men as Megan Draper’s father Emile. Do you have a thing for playing French-speaking characters on AMC?

A: [Laughs] You’re right! Yes, let’s keep it going. I should have my own series about a French gallery owner or restaurateur in New York. My first language is French, indeed. I grew up speaking Dutch and French, so I have an easy way with that language and it comes in handy.

Q: What is your favorite memory from being on the Preacher set?

A: Listening to Joseph’s stories in the trailer and trying to understand his Irish accent, which is not always easy for me, and getting the energy he has at nine in the morning. To just be around him is great. He’s a rock climber and sometimes he would find a wall and start climbing like a lizard. [Laughs] I wanted to connect with him and enjoy his presence because he’s the character I’m dealing with the most. Love, hate, resentment, judgment, contempt, need, desire, friendship – all of these things that you have to play with emotion. For that, you want to know the person that is the character that matters the most to you. Of course, also hanging out with Dominic and Ruth [Negga]. It’s a great group of people. Sometimes you go see movies and you don’t see chemistry. You watch them fall in love or kissing and you say to yourself, “Uh oh. I don’t believe it,” but that’s certainly not the case with Preacher. This trio, this ménage à trois, so to speak, is real magic. That’s one of the appeals of the show. They have these long scenes where they just sit at a table and talk, like a French movie full of dialogue. There’s something very experimental and smart about it. You really have to listen.

Preacher Q&A — Julie Ann Emery 'Lara Featherstone'
Por Adam Bryant - 14 Agosto 2017


Julie Ann Emery, who plays Lara Featherstone on AMC’s Preacher, discusses why her character is such a zealot, the pressure of bringing Featherstone to life and her complicated feelings for Herr Starr.

Q: What was your exposure to Preacher before you were cast in this role?

A: I was a big fan of Season 1. I thought it was such a tone mashup of comedy and horror and drama and Tarantino-style violence. Those things shouldn’t all go together, but somehow on Preacher, they work beautifully together. I wasn’t familiar with the comics until I was cast. I think I was auditioning when I started digging in. I would go through the comics quickly to build out the history of Featherstone herself and I immediately got really sucked in, but I really wanted to give them a slow read because there’s a lot you can miss in the comics if you’re not paying attention. There’s a lot of story that happens just visually that you can miss if you’re giving it too quick of a read.

Q: How would you describe Featherstone? What about the character attracted you to her?

A: I think the best word that describes her is “zealot.” She really believes in the cause of the Grail and that the world has gone to Hell. She thinks the world is in trouble and if she has to blow it up to save it, that’s OK with her. She’s highly capable, she’s type A, she’s a badass. There’s a transformational aspect to her that drew me to her in the audition material. We’ve seen two personas now. When Featherstone goes undercover, she goes deep. As an actor, the possibilities of the personas is a really rich playground. The idea is that she can fully inhabit these personas. For example, the jazz singer is built on a lot of qualities that Featherstone herself would judge in other people, but she’s able to take them on to trap Jesse. That makes her diabolical to me. I think “Jenny” encompasses a lot of weakness and she has a lot of disdain for weakness in other people. There’s something about her willingness to go that far in those personas that speaks to who she is. She feels almost out of step with the rest of society, but these personas she takes on feel like people that do walk around in society.

Q: How, if at all, is the Featherstone of the show different from the Featherstone of the comics?

A: I think the interpretation of Featherstone is not unlike the interpretation of Tulip. From the comics to the TV series, Tulip is explored further than she is sometimes in the comics. The beating heart of Featherstone is straight out of the comics. What’s been added is that she’s much more of a badass on the show. … I’m so grateful that when they went to add another woman to the mix on Preacher, they were OK with adding another badass woman. She gets more physical and it’s a beautiful way to run with what’s already on the page. I did speak to Garth Ennis about it when he visited the set, and he’s really happy with the interpretation. When he said that to me, I think my shoulders lowered about six inches. I was like, “Phew!” [Laughs]

Q: In Episode 3, things get a little steamy between Featherstone and Jesse. Was she just putting on an act for her job or do you think there’s some chemistry there?

A: I think that was fully the persona. We see in Episode 9 that she’s got this idol worship of Herr Starr that borders on love, and he’s a cult-like figure to her. The thing with Jesse was fully an act, but I’ll tell you – she would have f—ked with him. She would have taken it all the way had he not shut it down. She would have taken it all the way for the cause, which makes her that much more complex and interesting to me.

Q: In Episode 8, Featherstone meets Tulip for the first time. What do you think she makes of her?

A: I think the connection is mostly between Jenny and Tulip. Featherstone creates Jenny to play on Tulip and appeal to her. Jenny is saying, “please empower me” to Tulip, but I do think Featherstone has a respect for Tulip. Tulip is decisive, actionable in her own right, and there’s a lot to respect there, but she’s ultimately this side character to Jesse. The Grail has Jesse under surveillance and Tulip is either going to be a help or hindrance. If she’s a help, I think Jenny will play her all the way, but if she’s a hindrance, I think she’s in danger when it comes to Featherstone.

Q: How would you describe Featherstone’s relationships with Herr Starr?

A: Herr Starr is a great thrill in Featherstone’s life. Featherstone is always in charge, even when she’s surrounded by SWAT guys who can do crazy kung fu kicks. She’s the alpha, always, but the tables completely turn on her when Herr Starr is in the room in such a way that at first as an actor, I was like, “Whoa! What’s happening?” It felt like the Earth was moving when we first had a scene with Pip [Torrens]. I think she’s in love with him, but I’m not positive it’s a romantic love. There’s even more than that going on. There’s devotion for him. She thinks the world has gone to hell and she thinks Herr Starr can bring it back. She hitches her wagon to him in a big way. It’s unsettling to play. [Laughs] She’s so sure of herself all the time and I never feel sure of myself in my scenes with Herr Starr. It’s a beautiful wrench to throw in the dynamic of the Grail.

Q: Unlike Starr, Featherstone appears to be a zealot for the Grail’s mission. How are their goals aligned?

A: I think she’s attracted to his strength. He makes these power moves. He’s after power. I think she thinks Herr Starr is the way and has the power to save the world. If there’s one thing you can say about Herr Starr, it’s that he makes things happen. That’s very attractive to her and she thinks if she can be of assistance and influence those actions, that’s really the way forward and the way to bring about the second coming. She spends so much time being the alpha over Hoover and the other Grail members that maybe she just likes the dominance in the room. There’s something to be said about someone suddenly dominating her.

Q: Does Featherstone like Hoover? What do you think of them as a team?

A: I think there’s a terrific balance between Featherstone and Hoover, and I think she knows that. As much as she disdains him, she does spend an awful lot of time saving his life and protecting him. [Laughs] Sometimes, Hoover feels like a little puppy dog with her, but I think there’s something in her that knows that she needs him. Hoover does have a conscience and he questions things and is more of a complete human being. He has something she needs that’s missing for her. She does keep him on the right path, but she’s just not always nice when she does it.

Q: When Herr Starr lets Jesse live in Episode 9, does Featherstone think that’s a mistake?

A: She does. When he calls off B.R.A.D. the missile and she says, “May I ask why?” that’s crude. There’s something solider-like about her. She doesn’t question her orders, so that moment of questioning him is huge for her. Any moment of questioning him or acknowledging that she has messed up is as emotional as Featherstone gets. Her personas get emotional. She’s absolutely capable of an emotional life as Jenny, but in her own life, it’s a place that she doesn’t go aside from devastating disappointment. It’s a good question. It’s another interesting opposite for her. I think she’ll fall in line with her orders, but somewhere in the back of her mind it will gnaw at her. … She’s a soldier, so she’s going to say, “yes sir and no sir,” but every solider lies in their cot at night and reevaluates the day at hand. Featherstone is no different.

Q: What type of fan reaction have you seen since joining the show? What was it like for you at Comic-Con?

A: The Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad fan world is intense, very intelligent and very specific, so I was used to that, but there’s such a dedication to the source material of Preacher. When it was announced what character I was playing, I started getting messages on Twitter from people who’ve been waiting 22 years to see this character brought to life. I had to take a deep breath. That’s some serious pressure, right? There are people who’ve been clamoring for decades to see these characters fully realized. There’s a big responsibility there. There were people at Comic-Con who camped out overnight just to ask us questions. That’s extraordinary to me. It’s an intense moment to realize that kind of love and curiosity and fascination for the show. Obviously, we wouldn’t exist without the fans and the show would not be as good as it is if we didn’t have those fans that were that dedicated and specific. The intelligence of the audience raises the artistic level of what you’re doing. I feel pushed by the fans.

Preacher Q&A — Joseph Gilgun 'Cassidy'
Por Adam Bryant - 22 Agosto 2017


Joseph Gilgun, who plays Cassidy on AMC’s Preacher, discusses Cassidy’s struggles as a father, why he feels betrayed by Jesse and his favorite scenes to shoot this season.

Q: At what point in the season were you told that Cassidy was Denis’s father? How, if at all, did that change the way you view Cassidy?

A: Sam Catlin had mentioned it when we shot the pilot. He said how funny it would be to imagine Cassidy having a string of unfathered children. I thought we’d touch on it and maybe meet one one day, but I didn’t think it’d be so soon. I knew we would calm and domesticate Cassidy ever so slightly and show a different side. An absent father is possibly the most shameful thing you can be. To not be around for your child is just appalling and if you haven’t got a really good excuse, you better get on the phone right now if you’re reading this! [Laughs] I think Cassidy is constantly letting people down and he’s ran away from all his problems. He knows what he’s done to this boy. It changed the way I played him in the sense that I know that Cassidy is inherently selfish. He’s not just a feeder, physically — he’ll drain you of emotion. By not being with Denis, he’s drained the relationship of any real potential of it healing. I think he goes into that whole thing as a real asshole. He’s pretending like they’re best friends and he hasn’t been around for nearly 73 years. He’s a horrendous father that’s caused a lot of child trauma. We all blame our moms and dads for everything, right? Can you imagine being Denis?

Q: Do you think Cassidy was happy to come back to New Orleans in hopes of repairing this relationship?

A: I think his intentions are to do good. He’s just having a go at it. This guy’s a f—king serial killer. It’s like, “How do I do this? I guess I’ll take him to the arcade. That’s what dads do.” He’s blindly taking a stab at being a dad, with no natural ability to father. There are really tender moments he does have, but he doesn’t know how to be a father figure and it’s too late. Denis is an old man and he’s lived his life by himself. He’s trying to catch up, but he’s doing it in unusual ways. He feels bad and wants to make it right.

Q: Why do you think Cassidy was initially so dead-set against turning Denis to save him?

A: I think he’s thinking about the loneliness and feeling abandoned for 120 years. Everyone leaves you or dies and it’s just you. He’s hit the self-destruct button for a long time. The thing with becoming a vampire are the urges. It’s like being given an addiction to heroin with no experience of how to control your urges. Cassidy’s had 120 years of practice and has gotten to a stage where he doesn’t kill someone every night for the sake of it. He knows Denis will have a blood lust and doesn’t have experience harnessing those dark desires. It’s like, “Is this guy going to be a problem?” It’s about control and constantly battling the urge to do wrong. It changes the physical chemistry of your body and mindset. Denis is an ill, old man and Cassidy doesn’t know what he was capable of before he became terminally ill. His common sense is saying not to bite him. Denis has a very romantic image of what a vampire is, but it’s just not the reality.

Q: Cassidy eventually does turn Denis to save him. But in Episode 10, it seems his worst fears have come true. Do you think Cassidy regrets his choice?

A: Absolutely. The results speak for themselves. It’s just another mistake. When he does what he does for Denis, it’s all for him. It’s not for Denis. I don’t even think he’s being a father to Denis for Denis. It’s so he can take that off the list of terrible things he’s been a part of. I can only imagine having to watch that death, especially when someone is pleading with you to save their life. He bit Denis for himself. He wanted to make life easier on himself.

Q: How does Cassidy really feel when Jesse refused to use Genesis to help heal Denis?

A: I think he feels completely abandoned. Ultimately, Jesse does the right thing. It is the right decision, but for Cassidy, who’s watched this guy use Genesis for whatever suits him, it’s a complete “f—k you.” “What a way to abandon your best friend and his dying son whose house you’re staying in, you bastard. You’ll play around with the police and make them hold hands. Is that what Genesis is for?” To add insult to injury, he uses it to put Tulip to sleep! He’s loyal to Jesse. He’s done nothing wrong. He’s done nothing but be a loyal friend to Jesse and when he says no, it’s a serious betrayal.

Q: Even though they’re “best mates,” why do you think the Cassidy-Jesse relationship is so volatile at times?

A: If you touch a nerve with Cassidy, it seems like he’ll do a full 360 and attack you – not necessarily physically but verbally. He’s very spiteful and he watches everybody. He’s cataloging these things. It seems that if the stars align in such a way where you put him on the front foot, he has no choice but to respond. He’s vicious like that. He’s a good, fun character, but he’s a piece of sh—t, really. There’s injustice in having his good intentions thrown back in his face, and Jesse reminds him of what he is, which is a drunk, lying, cheating drug addict vampire. Cassidy hates himself. He doesn’t like what he is. He doesn’t feel cool. Hearing that from the guy he loves and would give his life for is too much to bear.

Q: Given the battles with Saint of Killers (Cassidy lost his fingers!) and the Grail, does Cassidy ever feel that Jesse isn’t worth all this hassle?

A: When you’re looking through the world through rose-tinted glasses, all the red flags appear as just flags. The glasses are coming off now. There are constant reminders now that this guy isn’t quite the fella he thought he was and this quest has gone to his head. All these things considered, Cassidy’s really starting to question not just whether he wants to be friends with this guy, but whether he likes Jesse at all. It’s comparable to one of those relationships where the husband is cruel but the wife feels like she needs him. He loves him; he’s just not in love with him. It’s an abusive relationship in a sense.

Q: You said last season you loved being covered in blood for the chainsaw fight. What has been your favorite stunt or gag this season?

A: I’ve got my own fangs this year, which is nice! I did a scene where my fingers have been cut off. That was good fun to shoot. I’ve not had many fights this year. I must request more next year. [Laughs]

Q: Last year, Cassidy had a run of digs against The Big Lebowski. This season, he’s a little more cautious when he mentions Terminator or Justin Bieber and clarifies his feelings quickly. Is he being more cautious with his pop culture takes?

A: [Laughs] I think he is. He’s slightly embarrassed. He doesn’t want Jesse getting the wrong end of the stick. It’s like, “I listen to Justin Bieber, but I’m still a tough guy.” I don’t agree with his Big Lebowski [take]. It drove me mad last year! I love that film. It’s one of my favorite films. I found it hilarious that Cassidy hated it.

Preacher Q&A — Malcolm Barrett 'F.J. Hoover
Por Adam Bryant - 04 Sept 2017


Malcolm Barrett, who plays Hoover on AMC’s Preacher, discusses what his character really thinks of the Grail, how Hoover bounces back after screw-ups, and facing down the Saint of Killers.

Q: How much did you know about Preacher before being cast in this role?

A: It was a show I had seen the promos for. I was a big fan of Seth [Rogen] and Evan [Goldberg]’s work over time, but the show seemed like exactly the tone of show I like, which is dark comedy and violence and tongue-in-cheek. I got the audition, and it was a great opportunity to binge the show and check it out to get the style of it. I binged through the entire season and whatever comics I could get to get the idea of Hoover. Then I auditioned and wound up getting it. After that, Julie Ann Emery and I talked, and she took me to this place where I got to see all these comics, so I’ve read through pretty much the entire thing except for the very last issue.

Q: How do you think your version of Hoover compares to the Hoover in the comics?

A: First of all, this is the best live-action version of Hoover to date. It’s also the only one, but still! [Laughs] I think I’m relatively close to the characterization that’s on the page. He’s got a good heart, but doesn’t exactly have a noticeable killer instinct, although he does have that in the comics in some instances. It’s very similar. He’s a guy with a lot of heart who’s probably a little misdirected in working for this organization and trying to make the best of it – and also carries a gun.

Q: How does Hoover feel about the Grail and its mission? How do you think he got into this line of work?

A: I think this is definitely something he believes in, but you first start to see the doubt of what they’re doing once Herr Starr comes into the picture. … That’s where we first see that Hoover is not necessarily 100 percent behind this. Featherstone talks about it being a great honor to be killed, but you see a seed of doubt within Hoover. The same happens when Hoover discovers that the descendent of Jesus is mentally challenged or that his bloodline has been made crazy from inbreeding. Herr Starr calls him some kind of imbecilic or idiot, and you can see that Hoover is clearly offended. Hoover is religious and is driven by what he believes to be pure, but he’s not necessarily a zealot. His eyes are open enough to have doubt.

Q: How would you describe Hoover’s relationship with Featherstone? Does it upset him how little she seems to think of him?

A: I love that they lay it out on the line almost immediately when Hoover is about to be killed and tells her he loves her and she says, “Shut up.” He’s willing to do almost anything for her, and it will be interesting to see how far he goes for the organization, for her and for what he wants as well. I think he’s bothered when Featherstone cuts down his advances, but only a little bit. He’s blinded by how he feels about her. I think he’s probably bothered by the zealot nature of her, but I think overall, he’s completely infatuated with her and that gives him a little more leeway to go along with these plans.

Q: What about Starr? He’s obviously an intimidating figure. How does Hoover choose to handle his interactions with him?

A: Hoover is interesting in terms of how he deals with Herr Starr because he’s just outside of the organization enough to where he doesn’t always get social cues. Sometimes, he’s intimidated by Herr Starr – like when he’s getting a gun drawn on him – but before he met him, he wasn’t intimidated by him. Before he goes to talk to the Saint of Killers, he lets Herr Starr know, “I’m not really good at this.” He’s unfortunately honest in some respects. [Starr] scares him but he’s also like, “We’re dudes. We’re guys, man. We can figure this out.”

Q: Hoover has made some pretty major screw-ups this season, most notably with Starr’s rape fantasy. How does he feel about his job performance? Does he worry he’s on thin ice?

A: I don’t think he ever blames himself for these mishaps. With the rape fantasy, he knows he messed up, but he just assumed something about Herr Starr. I think he feels, at the end of the day, that other people should relate to his mistakes. [Laughs] Hoover is surprisingly good at his job, but is always the first to take the brunt of any negativity that happens as a result. He’s humble enough. Self-preservation isn’t necessarily his first thought, for some reason.

Q: In Episode 12, Hoover gets a very important mission involving the Saint. Is he shocked to get such a big task? Does he look at that as a chance to redeem himself?

A: Hoover is aware of his limits and he embraces it. That’s the difference between him and everybody else. Hoover is not cocky. I think he wants to do a good job and definitely doesn’t want to die. He’s willing to sacrifice when it comes to Featherstone and wants to keep his life. When it came to handling the Saint, it was a real big moment for him to step up and know that everything was relying on him and he had to accomplish that. He couldn’t win by being the one to take a hit. He actually had to do the job and get it done. He does want to impress Herr Starr and be the best agent – he just happens to not be.

Q: How afraid is Hoover of the Saint? Is he surprised when he’s finally able to talk him into the plan?

A: Now that I think about it, Hoover gets his life threatened a lot! [Laughs] He’s almost used to it, but is still very afraid all the time. He doesn’t have the killer instincts, so he’s definitely afraid of the Saint of Killers. Hoover recognizes he’s not above that. He doesn’t have the preacher’s powers, he’s not excited to die for the cause like Featherstone and he knows he’s not the most accomplished agent. So, for him to try to convince the Saint of Killers is almost an impossible task that he knows he’s not ready for. The fact that he’s able to do it is a huge moment for him. He was counting his blessings that any part of his conversation was able to work and he was happy to get out of there as soon as he could.

Q: Do you think Hoover takes pleasure in seeing the Saint assault Jesse and Cassidy?

A: I don’t think he’s interested in killing them. His goal is to accomplish what Herr Starr wants, which is for the preacher to be defeated and not killed. That’s what he’s hoping for in that moment. He’s less concerned, emotionally, about them being killed. He’s concerned about getting their plan accomplished.

Q: Did you enjoy playing a character inside a character when you assumed the role of “Rodney”?

A: It was great. Hoover’s been fun because he’s slowly developed in a more low-key way than Herr Starr and Featherstone, who got really grand entrances. We’ve taken the reverse route with Hoover. We see him as a bartender and swinging a sign. To actually have him play a real character inside a character was a fun opportunity to explore. It allowed for people to see another side of Hoover and that he can step up when he’s called upon. People don’t realize how strong he is. He’s perfectly willing to go in there. He’s very aware that when he slaps Featherstone, he’s going to get his ass kicked and there’s some bravery in doing that which he should get some credit for.

Q: What was your favorite memory from being on set?

A: That Rodney scene is one of my favorites. But the allegiance that Julie and I have created was fun. Whenever you get a role where you’re playing partners with someone, it’s always great if you can have some good chemistry – and we do. We’re very Heckle and Jeckle and almost reminiscent of the angels from last year. Once we slip into that vibe, it’s very comfortable and it’s been very rewarding as an actor.

Q: So, you enjoy getting smashed with a guitar?

A: I loved it! [Laughs] If anyone is going to break my ribs, I hope it’s Julie.

Preacher Q&A — Sam Catlin -Executive Producer-
Por Adam Bryant, 11 Sept 2017


Sam Catlin, executive producer and showrunner of AMC’s Preacher, discusses that season-ending cliff-hanger, how Jesse’s past might be able to save his future, and Cassidy revealing his dark side.

Q: Did you have this ending in mind from the beginning of the season?

A: We wanted it to really show that Angelville was, for Jesse, a house of horrors. We wanted to really dramatize that it’s the last place he would ever want to go and he would only go there as a last resort. It’s the only place outside of Hell itself that scares him. Tulip is shot and killed under different circumstances in the comic book, so we knew we wanted some version of that. To have her in danger and bring it out into the open shows the fraternal rivalry and the resentment between Jesse and Cassidy over Jesse’s indirect responsibility for her death. It felt like a great leaping off point. If Season 2 asked, “Can this group of friends stick together and be on this quest?” then the answer is, “No. They can’t.” [Laughs] What’s going to happen now that all that rage and bitterness is out in the open? The band’s breaking up in a really dangerous way.

Q: Jesse obviously believes he can bring Tulip back to life at Angelville, but how worried is he for her?

A: I think it’s probably safe to say that Jesse’s never seen Grandma bring a person back to life. What happens to somebody if they are resurrected? How are they changed? What sort of debt might Jesse owe if that were to actually happen? I think he knows full well that everything comes with a cost as with Grandma bringing the chicken back to life. I think we can only imagine what cost she’ll exact for bringing the love of his life back to life, if she’s able to.

Q: The rift between Jesse and Cassidy has been growing all season, but is there any way their friendship survives this?

A: I think we can hate the people we love. I think this will be a serious test of their love for each other because there have been some serious issues lurking underneath for the both of them, almost from the beginning. Jesse is a very conservative son of a preacher. I think his father was like an idolized Ronald Reagan. In some way, Jesse’s a real conservative and Cassidy represents chaos in a lot of ways. I think there’s a part of Jesse that is repulsed by that.

Q: Speaking of ending relationships, does Cassidy feel any remorse for killing Denis?

A: It remains to be seen if he has any remorse and what the effect of killing your own child will have on him, but I think one of his superpowers is he’s a great judge of character and has a good intuition about people. I think, all along, he wasn’t listening to his own intuition about his son. His son wasn’t necessarily cut out for the life of a vampire. I think Cassidy was really worried about the parts of his own nature that Denis was provoking and speaking to and his own carnal appetite that Cassidy has made a lot of effort over the years to curb with mixed success. In a way, Denis was your buddy from rehab that was using again and you either pick up yourself or get rid of him. Joe [Gilgun] obviously has such a great charisma and likability as a performer, much in the same way that Cassidy has, so I think people can get fooled into thinking of Cassidy as nothing more than a rascal, but he does say he’s a many-sided person. He has a truly dark side – and not in the way that audiences will think is sexy or cute or funny.

Q: By the end of the season, Genesis isn’t working properly. How concerned should Jesse be about that? How does that affect Herr Starr‘s plans for Jesse and the Grail?

A: Jesse is worried. It’s been something he hadn’t really paid attention to at first, but by the end of the season, he knows it’s not working. He doesn’t know why. Starr is probably a step behind in terms of figuring out that Jesse’s power is blocked right now. He needs Jesse for his power. He doesn’t just need a handsome minister. He needs that power.

Q: Eugene is out of Hell, but he brought Hitler with him! Does Eugene realize he’s made a mistake once Hitler runs away? What do you think Eugene’s experience in Hell has taught him?

A: He realizes the responsibility that he bears by letting Hitler loose in the world. But I think in the end, that’s Eugene’s story for the season: If a man seems truly repentant, who am I to condemn him? I think in Season 1, he was burdened with guilt and that he was beyond salvation. Even though Jesse had no right to send him to Hell, there’s a part of him that felt it was where he’d end up anyway. I think he learns over the course of the season that he doesn’t belong there, which may seem evident to us, but Eugene has such a deep sense of moral responsibility that he’d become polluted by his own guilt.

Q: The Saint of Killers is now back in Hell, but revenge against Jesse is his new motivation. Should we interpret his wanting to have a “word with Satan” as some new plan?

A: He definitely has a new plan, and I’m sure Jesse is a part of it. I think his time with Jesse opened his eyes to the wider world and a wider sense of justice or injustice. I imagine Hell won’t be able to hold him.

Q: We met Humperdoo this season. While there are some parts of the comic you probably can’t put on TV, have you been surprised by how much of it you have been able to feature?

A: That’s what’s exciting about television. There’s such a wider landscape for what’s possible. The idea of doing Garth Ennis’s Preacher as a television show certainly wouldn’t have been possible five years ago. The audience for television is so sophisticated and open. If the story is compelling, people will follow.

Q: What was the craziest/most challenging scene to pull off this season? Do you have a moment from the season you’re particularly proud of?

A: It’s amazing what the production team has been able to pull off with the amount of time we have and in terms of stunts, settings and the different time periods. All the credit in the world goes to our directors and Michael Slovis and our line producer Mark McNair. It’s been incredible what they’ve been able to accomplish. It’s a very hard show to produce. It’s hard on everyone, but it’s very gratifying. There are a lot of moments, but just the fact that we were able to get not one but two armored cars, were able to let the Saint loose on the world, we were able to introduce this wider world of the Grail and all the different locations. That’s the big challenge of the show – capturing that epic quality. I’m totally impressed by how much our production team has been able to accomplish.
