Jackie Earle Haley Is Everyone's Villain Now

All while still being a recurring part of Preacher. Where is he going to find the time?

We already knew that Haley was playing the villainous Odin Quincannon on AMC’s Preacher. But now Deadline’s reporting that he’s also going to play the villainous character “The Terror” on Amazon’s The Tick. And he’s in negotiations to play Richard Sayre, the not-so-good vampire leader in the movie version of The Dark Tower. There’s something connecting all these roles, but I can’t quite put my finger on it...

If Jackie Earle Haley is going to be in everything, I think I might be fine with that. Certainly I’m more okay with it than I am other people who get cast in every single project ever made.

I do love Jackie Earl Haley. And I would rather see him in everything, also. Let's also put J. K. Simmons, Bill Nighy and Ted Levine in everything.
