As a life long comic book fan, I have to agree with people who say that Preacher is far better suited as a television series for HBO, Showtime, etc. To try to compile all of the greatness of Preacher into a 2 hour movie will be an utter fail, in my opinion, just like with the movie adaptation of Watchmen.
Has anyone read Preacher? If not, I strongly urge you to buy the trade paper backs and get ready for an utter thrill ride. Garth Ennis is one of the greatest writers in all of comic books, as is Steve Dillon's art work.

Back in the day I perceived Jason Patric from the Lost Boys as being a perfect Jesse.
Franco has the Star Power and the Indie crowd. His innocent charm can work with Jesse.
It's just that he seems gullible in his roles, but that's no reason to write him out in such a plot.
He has his strengths, but he's never been the brawler type.

In the comics, Cassidy is very, very Irish. Joseph would have to pull off one hell of a thick accent.
Tyler seems a little young to play SoK, but they could always age him with a mixture of makeup/prosthetics/CG.
"A great tactician creates plans.
A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented to him.
A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept the plan.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with resentment."
My bawlz got a little bit wet just reading your post. What really needs to happen is you need to go lobby some producers in Hollywood and then act as a consultant for this show. Stop being lazy and just make it happen so we can enjoy a proper show.
For me, this would be the replacement show for Breaking Bad...I'd love to see Preacher end up as a TV Series done a la Showtime or HBO.
