Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s seminal DC/Vertigo series “Preacher” included many memorable characters, among them the colorfully named Arseface, who was left severely disfigured after an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
With the comic book getting a TV adaptation on AMC, fans have wondered how the visually distinctive character would be depicted in live-action — and the answer arrived with a new, official look at actor Ian Colletti in character as the good-natured Eugene Root / Arseface, released in conjunction with the scheduled conclusion of the show’s Friday evening WonderCon panel.
Though set photos had previously surfaced of Colletti on “Preacher,” this is the first officially released Arseface-focused image. The character isn’t an exact visual match to the comic book version, but certainly appears to live up to his name.
“Preacher” is set to debut May 22 on AMC.
