Supernatural's Jensen Ackles Lands Role in Amazon's 'The Boys'

Jensen Ackles, star of the long running The CW show Supernatural, has landed a role in Amazon Prime Video’s hit show The Boys!

Jensen is set to portray Soldier Boy in the show’s upcoming third season.

“When I was a child, I had a crazy, impossible dream — to provide Jensen Ackles with gainful employment,” producer Eric Kripke, who also created Supernatural, 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. I can’t wait to be on set with him again, and bring a bit of ‘Supernatural’ to ‘The Boys.’”

Find out what Jensen‘s longtime co-star Jared Padalecki is going to be doing after Supernatural.

Jensen himself had a fun way of announcing the news!
