WATCHMEN's Jackie Earle Haley Joins PREACHER

WATCHMEN's Jackie Earle Haley Joins PREACHER

AMC's small screen adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's controversial comic series has added Oscar nominee Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children, Robocop, Watchmen) as one of the most loathsome characters in comic book history: Odin Quincannon.

When Elizabeth Perkins joined the cast of Preacher as a character named Vyla Quinncannon, we thought the vile Odin Quincannon from the comics must have been gender-swapped -  but it seems that's not the case as THR reports that the awesome Jackie Earle Haley has booked a six-episode arc as the notorious villain.

This take on Quincannon is described as "a small, decrepit man with the unscrupulous iron will necessary to be the most powerful man in Annville County, Texas. The chief employer in town, Odin runs Quincannon Meat & Power, a 125-year-old family run cattle slaughterhouse business." Sounds about right - though fans of the comic will be all-too aware that he's also a KKK member, and is fond of having sex with a giant meat-woman. Yeah, seriously.

It remains to be seen if we'll get that visual on the show (that's one element I actually hope they disregard), which is set to premiere at the upcoming SXSW Film Festival. Preacher also stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip, and Joe Gilgun as Cassidy.
