‘Preacher’ producer Seth Rogen goes rogue to get himself into new AMC show’s trailer

Seth Rogen is serving a variety of roles behind the camera on AMC’s upcoming Preacher series, both developing and producing the adaptation of the celebrated comic book series and co-directing the first episode, among other duties. What he isn’t doing, however, is appearing in the show.

Until now, that is.

In a new video released by AMC, the Pineapple Express and This is the End star re-creates the first trailer for Preacher by playing every character that appears in the footage and offering up a DIY version of the series preview. And the results are, well …

You should probably just see it for yourself.

Developed and produced by Rogen and his frequent collaborator, Evan Goldberg, Preacher adapts the groundbreaking comic book series of the same name written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Steve Dillon. Breaking Bad writer and producer Sam Catlin co-developed the series and will serve as showrunner on Preacher, but it seems safe to assume that neither Goldberg nor Catlin had much to do with Rogen’s handmade trailer for the show.

Featuring Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s DoubleCaptain America: The First Avenger) in the title role, Preacher follows a small-town Texas preacher named Jesse Custer who gains an extraordinary ability that sets him off on a wild adventure. Along the way, he teams up with his tough-as-nails ex-girlfriend Tulip (played by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Ruth Negga) and an Irish rogue named Cassidy (Misfits actor Joseph Gilgun), who has a dark secret of his own, and encounters a host of characters from Heaven, Hell, and everywhere in between.

AMC recently released the first five minutes of the pilot episode of Preacher, offering a peek at what the series has in store for audiences.

Preacher premieres at 10 p.m. ET on Sunday on AMC.
