Series Creator Eric Kripke Comments Jensen Ackles Joining The Series
Eric Kripke who serves as the creator for both Supernatural and The Boys series said the following about Ackles joining The Boys season 3.
“When I was a child, I had a crazy, impossible dream — to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment,” The Boys showrunner Kripke said in a statement. “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 humor, pathos and danger to the role,” Kripke added. “I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of Supernatural to The Boys.”
It seems that Kripke is excited to work with Ackles once more after their 15 year adventure on Supernatural comes to a close in November.
