Preacher: We've Seen Herr Starr's AMAZING Introduction
At the panel for Preacher today at San Diego Comic-Con, a sequence was shown that introduces one of the comic book’s most infamous (and popular) villains, Herr Starr – and looked like it was spot on in terms of the tone and depiction of the character.
Preacher executive producer Seth Rogen noted that the next episode, following a tease earlier, “introduces the Grail more thoroughly.” The Grail is a religiously inclined organization and through them we’ll meet Herr Starr, who Rogen noted, “Is one of the most powerful men on the planet. In the comic, he’s one of the best characters.”
The sequence shown followed Starr (played by Pip Torrens) as one of many candidates/recruits trying to join The Grail – as we see him as one of many men lined up, naked initially, in front of those who will judge them. But Starr stands out immediately with his bald head, dead eye and two nipple rings connected by a chain.
