Deadline reports that Ian Colletti (Rake) has been cast as Eugene Root, otherwise known as Arseface. If you’ve not read the comic, Arseface is a character who appears throughout, going on a strange and powerful journey of revenge then self-discovery.
Per the site, “Even with his horribly disfigured face and severe speech impediment, Eugene’s still the nicest kid you’ll ever meet and really looks up to Jesse. Stomach-churningly difficult to look at, Eugene’s the town’s reviled Frankenstein’s monster, but that won’t change his earnest, sweet and pure outlook on life. However, he is troubled by something terrible he’s done in the past — something he fears might have turned God himself against him.”
