Jennifer Esposito Joins the Cast of Amazon’s The Boys

“’Who watches the watchmen?’ The Boys of course,” according to Simon Pegg. But who watches The Boys? That job is going to NCIS veteran Jennifer Esposito.

Via Deadline, Esposito has signed on to appear in five episodes of Amazon’s The Boys, which is based upon the mature comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Within the show and the comic, the Boys are a CIA black opps team led by Billy Butcher that is tasked with confronting superheroes when they get out of control. And as Pegg so eloquently put it in his introduction for The Boys trade paperback, the titular characters usually “kick the living, f***ing s*** out of [superheroes].”

 

Esposito will be portraying CIA agent Susan L. Rayner, a woman who shares a complicated dynamic with Billy Butcher. Susan and Billy hate each other, but they also have a destructive sexual relationship as well. In theory, Susan has authority over Billy and his team. But the Boys ultimately answer to no one but themselves.

Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Supernatural creator Eric Kripe developed The Boys for Amazon. The show is expected to retain most of the comic’s boundary pushing violence and sexuality, while exploring the dark side of superhero celebrity and fame. Karl Urban headlines the cast as Billy Butcher, with Jack Quaid as Hughie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, and Karen Fukuhara as the Female. Elisabeth Shue co-stars in the series alongside Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, and Nathan Mitchell.

The Boys season 1 is currently in production and it will likely debut on Amazon in 2019.
