The Boys Spotlights Antony Starr, Giancarlo Esposito’s Script-to-Screen Acting

Homelander staring down Giancarlo Esposito

The Boys showcases the acting talents of Antony Starr and Giancarlo Esposito by demonstrating the pair’s script-to-screen performances.

The Boys celebrates Antony Starr and Giancarlo Esposito with one of the show’s most memorable scenes.

The series’ official Twitter account shared the instantly iconic exchange between Starr’s Homelander and Esposito’s Stan Edgar on Jan. 15. The moment in question sees the drunk-on-power superhero attempting (and failing) to put the brutal businessman in his place. The post was accompanied by the caption “Two [Critics Choice Award] nominees, one legen-fuckin-dairy scene,” with the video itself being accompanied by writer Meredith Glynn’s original scripted dialogue.

Prime Video’s The Boys premiered in 2019 and quickly garnered a reputation for its over-the-top, gory, and often grotesque sequences. The series, based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s 2006 comic book series of the same name, follows the eponymous anti-hero team in their secret war against the massive multinational corporation Vought International. Starr’s Homelander, effectively an evil Superman archetype, acts as the public face of The Seven, Vought’s corporate-owned super team. Esposito’s Edgar is the former CEO of Vought who serves as the series’ overarching antagonist, even more so than Homelander and his fellow costumed crime fighters.

Celebrating The Boys

The Boys‘ Twitter account previously celebrated the end of Season 3 with a tribute video to the various characters who lost their lives throughout. The spoiler-filled video opened with a disclaimer to “Please Watch The Boys Season 3 Before Honoring Our Fallen Heroes,” and featured the Emmy-nominated song “Never Truly Vanish,” which composer Christopher Lennertz and co-executive producer Michael Saltzman created to be performed by Starlight actress Erin Moriarty during the show’s second season.

While Season 3 featured plenty of death and destruction, Season 4 is hotly anticipated by fans as it is set to introduce plenty of new characters. Among them is protagonist Hughie’s mysterious mother Mrs. Campbell as portrayed by Rosemarie DeWitt, who will be joined by Elliot Knight, Rob Benedict, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, all of whom will be playing currently undisclosed roles in the series.

On Morgan’s upcoming appearance, Black Noir actor Nathan Mitchell said, “I don’t know how much can be revealed about that character, but I think the cool thing about this show is we’re always going in different directions and showing you different storylines and different characters in ways you wouldn’t expect, so I think that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going to play a role that stays with fans for a long time.”

The first three seasons of The Boys, as well as the first season of the series’ animated spinoff The Boys Presents: Diabolical, are available to stream on Prime Video. Season 4 does not yet have an official release date.
