Will Tulip be wearing flowered dresses in the new Preacher television series?

I’d guess probably not, considering the source material, but the actress playing her certainly has a history of it.

According to io9 Ruth Negga, currently sprouting thorns on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has been cast as Tulip, the female lead for Preacher, the upcoming AMC television series based on the landmark Vertigo comic from several years back.

Politically and religiously irreverent, Preacher has been struggling in development morass for a while until producer Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg took the reigns and are making some things happen. ¬†Several years ago I doubt anything remotely close to Preacher could ever exist on a media platform, but with the success of the always line-pushing The Walking Dead, things are a lot more possible. ¬†I’m looking forward to it.
