Laz Alonso (“Detroit,” “The Mysteries of Laura”) has been cast in the straight-to-series adaptation of Garth Ennis’ comic “The Boys” at Amazon and Sony Pictures TV.
The project sees the teaming of “Supernatural” and “Timeless” creator Eric Kripke with producers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen who brought Ennis’ most famous comic “Preacher” to the screen on AMC.
Set in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, a group of vigilantes known informally as ‘the boys’ set out to take down corrupt superheroes by any means necessary.
Alonso plays Mother’s Milk, a highly intelligent and intuitive detective and second in command of The Boys. Goldberg & Rogen will direct and Kripke is writing the series.
