Actor Shawn Ashmore, best known for playing the mutant Iceman in the “X-Men” films, has boarded the second season of Amazon Prime Video web series “The Boys”, the streamer announced on Monday.
While everyone is waiting to watch season two of Amazon’s superhero drama “The Boys”. It’s just a countdown for all the ways waiting for the satire superheroes series. Now to add more punch to it, a stellar actor is going to join this Amazon Prime series. Shawn Ashmore is set to season 2.
The 40-year-old actor will play the role of Lamplighter, one of the original members of the superhero club, The Seven. “The Boys” is about a world where superheroes exist, but instead of accepting that with great power comes great responsibility, they are completely corrupted by power.
“We were thrilled that Shawn – who is, let”s be honest, an OG superhero – wanted to play the crucial part of Lamplighter. He brings so much depth, menace, and world-weary humanity to this former member of the Seven. And Shawn is a really good guy. We”re grateful to have him join our bloody little family,” Kripke said in a statement.
The second season of “The Boys” will debut on Amazon Prime Video with the first three episodes dropping on September 4, and new episodes available each Friday.
The season finale will premiere on October 9.
