Allman, Wilson Join AMC’s “Preacher” Cast

Jamie Anne Allman (“The Killing”) and Derek Wilson (“Rectify”) have scored recurring roles on AMC’s drama series “Preacher” based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic.

The story centers on Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says.

Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.

Allman will play Betsy Schenck, a meek wife who appears to suffer beatings by the hand of her Civil War re-enactor husband Donny (Wilson). When the Preacher checks up on her, though, she tells a different story.
