As it was rumored, so it has come to pass! Dominic Cooper, a.k.a. Howard Stark in the early days of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been cast as the lead in Seth Rogen’s TV adaptation of Garth Ennis’ hit Vertigo comic Preacher.

Cooper joins Ruth Negga as Tulip, Joseph Gilgun as the Irish vampire Cassidy, and Ian Coletti as Arseface in the upcoming AMC series.
