(Most Of) The SEVEN Cast for Amazon's THE BOYS

19 January 2018

Amazon's new superhero series The Boys is adding a few boys - and one girl - to its cast. A bunch of filthy, no-good, vile superheroes who will have their faces kicked in by a team of antiheroes dedicated to policing the super-powered people who walk among us.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been instrumental in finally getting a TV adaptation of Garth Ennis' Preacher comic book series off the ground, and now they're hard at work on another Ennis adaptation, The Boys. Let us know in the comments.

Deadline reports that Anthony Starr (American Gothic), House of Card's Dominique McElligott, Gossip Girl alum Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence) and iZombie actor Nathan Mitchell have been cast in the series. Starr will play The Homelander, a sort of mish-mash of Superman and Captain America, but far more vile and vicious. McElligott joins the series as Queen Maeve, a member of The Seven. Usher takes on the role of A-Train, a superhero able to run faster than a speeding train, while Mitchell plays an Aquatic hero known as The Deep. Moriarty will play Starlight, a newbie superhero who quickly realizes that the team she idolized from afar are real dicks when they're out of the public eye.

The new Amazon series from Rogen, Goldberg and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke is set to arrive in early 2019, and the cast is now filling out nicely.
