Supernatural star Jensen Ackles is all set to suit up in the third season of Amazon Prime’s The Boys. The casting news was made on Ackles’ social media account. Jensen will portray the role of original superhero, Soldier Boy. Talking about roping Jensen in The Boys, showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke said, “When I was a child, I had a crazy, impossible dream to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment. I’m happy to say that dream has come true. Jensen is an amazing actor, an even better person, smells like warm chocolate chip cookies, and I consider him a brother.” “As Soldier Boy, the very first superhero, he’ll bring so much humour, pathos, and danger to the role. I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of ‘Supernatural’ to ‘The Boys’,” Kripke added.
