According to Deadline, Agents of SHIELD and World War Z‘s Ruth Negga is now the first official cast member of AMC’s Seth Rogen-directed Preacher adaptation.

Negga will be playing Tulip, the ex-girlfriend of the comic’s titular possessed Preacher and “a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to construct helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.”


Basically, she’s a BAMF.

Deadline points out that Preacher marks the second consecutive comic-book-based project where Sony has cast a woman of color in a traditionally white role (Susan Heyward nabbed the part of Powers‘ Deena Pilgrim last July).

Now that Preacher has its Tulip, any ideas on who you’d like to see play Jesse or Cassidy?
