Jensen Ackles is joining the cast of Amazon’s hit superhero-takedown series, The Young Boys This news just makes great sense, because as anybody who has viewed more than a minute of Ackles’ long-running program Supernatural can testify– and as we ourselves have stated morethana few times– Jensen Ackles is bulletproof.
The actor and one-man beauty offensive will be playing “Soldier Boy,” explained as the initial superhero: “After Soldier Boy fought in The second world war, he ended up being the very first extremely celebrity, and an essential of American culture for years.” No word on whether Soldier Boy will be a fan of cold beer, 1970 s rock, and papa jokes, however we’re meticulously optimistic. Along with the star’s natural imperviousness to just about anything unfavorable, the news is likewise unsurprising due to the creative heads behind each series: Supernatural developer Eric Kripke is likewise the showrunner for The Boys. In the press release revealing the news, Kripke sensibly described his profession thusly: “When I was a kid, I had a crazy, difficult dream– to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment. I more than happy to state that dream has actually come true.” Genuinely, doing the lord’s work, Mr. Kripke.
