Seth Rogen’s giggles should have been unsettling.
After all, Baton Rougean Michael Papajohn’s ear had just been bitten off and a corn cob stuffed down his throat as a finale to the bloodiest battle he’d ever fought.
Yet Rogen couldn’t stop laughing, maybe because he knew he had something special, a scene that would go viral after airing as a trailer for AMC’s new series, “Preacher.” The show premiers Sunday on AMC, following the finale of “Fear the Walking Dead.”
The 1-minute, 20-second clip shows Tulip, one of the series’ main characters, being strangled from behind as she’s driving. The fight with her attacker takes them on a high-speed ride through a cornfield, ending with the strangler’s death.
That’s not a spoiler. Papajohn readily admits it’s his bad guy character that comes to the brutal end. And it’s his character that’s causing part of the Internet buzz.
