Last Friday, Amazon Prime Video released its latest original series, The Boys. Based on the hit comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys follows a group of vigilantes who aim to take down The Seven, the world’s most famous (or infamous) superheroes and expose their corruption. And recently, the Beat’s Kay-B had a chance to chat with members of The Boys cast to learn more about this gritty, violent, and frankly brutal adaptation.
Watch as Kay-B talks to The Boys cast members Nathan Mitchell (Black Noir), Jessie T. Usher (A-Train), Chace Crawford (The Deep), and Laz Alonso (Mother’s Milk) about what they enjoy most about playing their characters and why this hyper-stylized show is actually “grounded in what we’re dealing with right now.”
After you’ve watched the video, subscribe to the Beat’s YouTube for the latest in movies, television, and comic book news. We’ve got plenty of innovative and exciting content coming your way and we’re just getting started.
The Boys is an irreverent take on what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods, abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven”, and their formidable Vought backing.
