Actor Simon Pegg has joined the cast of Amazon’s upcoming superhero drama “The Boys”.
The news was announced during the ongoing New York Comic Con where the 48-year-old actor joined the stars of the show for a panel discussion, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” star will portray the father of Hughie (Jack Quaid), one of the members of the titular Boys.
The series is about a world where superheroes exist, but instead of accepting that with great power comes great responsibility, they are completely corrupted by power. The group keeps them in check.
It is based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.
The panel was attended by “The Boys” co-creators Eric Kripke and Evan Goldberg, as well as cast members Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Karen Fukuhara, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty and Chace Crawford.
The series will debut on Amazon in 2019.
