It is this writer’s opinion that if there is one actor that deserves a role in Prime Video’s The Boys it’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan. If you have seen what he did in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen as The Comedian aka Edward Blake and as Negan in AMC’s The Walking Dead, you know why. He is very good at conveying that jerk/villain that is so attractive to audiences.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Morgan has signed on for the fourth season of Prime Video’s The Boys. His role is being kept under wraps for the time being. This casting will be returning him with the series showrunner Eric Kripke. Morgan had played John Winchester on Kripke’s Supernatural. Current star Jensen Ackles, who plays Soldier Boy is also a Supernatural alumnus.
The Boys is currently on a break after the conclusion of its insane third season. Along with the main series, Prime Video has two spin-off series. One is a second season of the animated hit, The Boys Presents: Diabolical. As well as an upcoming college-focused spinoff titled, Gen V.
Morgan will be reprising his role as Negan in the upcoming Walking Dead spin-off series Dead City.
Here is the synopsis for Prime Video’s The Boys
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.
If you need to catch up on the series, all three seasons of the series as well as the first season of the animated series are available on Prime Video.
