AMC adaptation of graphic novel series to premiere May 22

Seth Rogen‘s new AMC series “Preacher” has released the first image of the character known as Arseface.

“I am proud to present… Arseface,” Rogen tweeted along with the first look at the character. Rogen added, “#Preacher is coming…”

Ian Colletti will play the character in the show, which is adapted from the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon graphic novel series of the same name.

Arseface’s real name is Eugene Root, the son of Anvil, Texas, sheriff Hugo Root. Eugene became horribly disfigured when he shot himself in the face but somehow survived. Afterwards, he decided to adopt a more positive outlook on life.

The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a West Texas preacher with a mysterious past. After a supernatural experience, he sets out with his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) to find God and ask him to explain himself.

Rogen and Evan Goldberg are serving as executive producers on the show, which hails from AMC Studios and Sony Pictures Television. Executive producer Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”) is serving as showrunner, and wrote the pilot episode.

“Preacher” will premiere on AMC on May 22.
