the boys cast added Laurie Holden in a recurring role for the upcoming third season. It was recently announced that actors Sean Patrick Flanery, Nick Wechsler and Miles Gaston Villanueva had been cast in superhero roles for Season 3. It is now reported that Holden has also joined the cast and will play Crimson Countess.
Holden is best known for her role as zombie apocalypse survivor Andrea in the first three seasons of +The Walking Dead. The actress is also known for her recurring roles on The X files, The shield, The beautiful seven, The Americans, and Proven innocent. She has also appeared in such films as The majestic, Silent Hill, Fantastic four,The fog, stupid and stupid om, Pyewacket, and Arctic dogs.
As with the other recently added cast members, Holden joins in the boys after the production of season 3 is already halfway through. While they will be on display in a limited capacity, Jensen Ackles joins the season in a starring role as the superhero Soldier Boy. Ackles has been featured in several images posted from the set before, showing that the supernatural star has grown out of his beard. A look at him in his Soldier Boy outfit has also been revealed online.
the boys is based on the best-selling comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Developed for Amazon Prime Video by supernatural creator Eric Kripke, who serves as writer and executive producer, the show follows a group of misfits who unite to stop corrupt superheroes from abusing their powers. Filled with gory violence and dark comedy, the series serves as a parody of modern superhero movies and television shows, and many of the characters are directly inspired by Marvel and DC fan favorites.
Starring in the series as part of the titular vigilante group include Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell, Karen Fukuhara as Kumiko, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, and Tomer Capon as Frenchie. The superhero cast includes Antony Starr as Homelander, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Erin Moriarty as Starlight, Jessie T. Usher as A-Train, Chace Crawford as the Deep, Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir and Aya Cash as Stormfront.
It looks like the series won’t waste any time before the guts hit the fan in Season 3. Kripke teased what’s to come in the Season 3 premiere, suggesting it will feature a scene absolutely never seen before on the small screen, and could very well be the most insane moment ever depicted in a television series. That’s sure to get the mind racing, especially after all we’ve seen from the show before.
“Without giving away spoilers, I was just editing yesterday, and we’re doing something here in the season 3 premiere that not only I think is the craziest thing we’ve ever done, it has to be up there with the craziest thing anyone ever did,” Kripke recently told Deadline. “Maybe it won’t work. Who knows? But I’m just so high on this joke that we pull out. And it’s definitely something that nobody’s ever seen before, probably for a good reason. So that’s all really exciting.”
He added: “Every episode we can really show the audience something that they’ve probably never seen before. And that’s exciting. How many times on a TV show are you allowed to say that?”
the boys doesn’t have a release date for the third season yet, but it looks likely to arrive sometime later this year. Until then, fans can watch the first two seasons on Amazon Prime Video. This news comes from Deadline.
