In relation to the TV adaptation of the cultic comic titled Preacher, AMC, the channel producing the television series announced that the premier would be on 22nd May (with a very good sense they timed the starting by the time of Fear the Walking Dead has a mid-season break). In addition, they played the pilot episode of the series at the music and film festival and conference named SXSW.

Tom Cruise made an exception

The lucky ones, who could see the first episode more than two months before the premier, are all amazed at the series. But the real sensation is, as it has also turned out, that an excellent star, Tom Cruise has respected the production with a short scene.

The actor of Mission: Impossible movies doesn’t appear on TV at all, but it seems that he has made an exception for Preacher.

A preacher after being a tough guy

In addition, in his short role he impersonates a preacher of the Church of Scientology who literally explodes. As it is known, Cruise is a follower of the mentioned church in real life as well. According to the story, the preachers of the world are obsessed by an unknown, extraterrestrial power which makes them explode. The actor blows up in a really cruel way while he is preaching in front of a large audience on the TV screen.

The star has made people smile not for the first time

Considering that the main producers of the series are Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who are known mostly for writing Pineapple Express, This Is the End, The Interview and Bad Neighbors 2 (the former creator also acts in the mentioned movies), black humour appearing in Preacher is not surprising at all.

If we think about it, Tom Cruise hasn’t made a fool out of himself for the first time as he played a producer with a distorted appearance very well in Tropic Thunder.

However, the cast seems promising

Besides Cruise’s cameo, we can see Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia!, Need for Speed, Dead Man Down), Ruth Negga (Breakfast on Pluto, World War Z) and Joseph Gilgun (Pride, The Last Witch Hunter) in Preacher, and Tom Brooke, W. Earl Brown and Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street) also appears. The first season will consist of ten episodes.
