The Boys cast

The main cast of The Boys includes Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Elisabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwell, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Jack Quaid as “Wee” Hughie Campbell, Karen Fukuhara as The Female and Tomer Kapon as Frenchie.

Joining them are Erin Moriarty as Annie January / Starlight, Antony Starr as The Homelander, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Jessie Usher as A-Train, Chace Crawford as The Deep and Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir.


An official synopsis of the show reads: “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.”
