The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke explains why Seth Rogen popped in for a cameo in a hilariously unsexy Crimson Countess scene. The Boys season 3 has continued the present’s behavior of getting some notable cameos in enjoyable roles, together with Charlize Theron appearing as Stormfront within the Vought Cinematic Universe’s Daybreak of the Seven trailer. The most recent cameo look comes on the tail finish of season 3, episode 5, “The Final Time to Look on This World of Lies,” which finds Jensen Ackles’ Soldier Boy monitoring down his previous Payback teammates after being free of cryo-freeze in Russia. He first finds his previous flame, Crimson Countess (Laurie Holden), who he rapidly snuffs out for handing him over to the Russians to be tortured and experimented on for many years.
Earlier than Crimson Countess dies, the viewers will get a peek at how the washed-up Supe makes some additional revenue. Producer Seth Rogen seems within the scene as a shopper named @Sir-Cums-A-Lot-779, who Crimson Countess is performing a non-public webcam present for on SupePorn.com, (a website that Amazon has now truly made). She’s about to introduce intercourse toys into her play as Rogen’s shopper pleasures himself, simply when Butcher prematurely interrupts the state of affairs. The cameo marks the third time Rogen has appeared on The Boys, as soon as every season, with him taking part in a model of himself in earlier appearances.
Kripke explains the cameo in a short interview with EW. In response to him, the showrunners had an extended record of individuals they wished for the cameo, however each one among them turned it down. Rogen himself was initially hesitant, not due to the content material, however as a result of he had just lately been seen equally pleasuring himself in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy. However as soon as Kripke defined that they’d run out of choices, Rogen stepped in. Kripke had a very good humorousness in regards to the state of affairs saying this:
“We had an extended record of identify cameos that we wished to go after to place in that scene, and for some cause all of them handed. I do not know why they would not wish to jerk off to Crimson Countess aggressively on digicam after which orgasm too early. I simply can’t think about why an actor would not wish to try this dream function.”
The fifth episode of the season was notably rather less gratuitous and had fewer bonkers set items than earlier episodes, apart from a notable Kimiko song and dance sequence. The temporary scene between Crimson Countess and @Sir-Cums-A-Lot-779 was the edgiest the episode appeared to get, however even then it was tamer than the intercourse toy combat in episode 4. Kripke commends Rogen for not solely taking the function, but additionally making it sex-positive whereas nonetheless discovering the humor in it. Relatively than going for reasonable laughs and taking part in the shopper as gross or overly lascivious, he comes throughout extra as a kink-friendly man who’s simply actually excited to be doing what he is doing.
Kripke has beforehand acknowledged that his headcanon for Rogen’s appearances within the present is that he is taking part in ‘Seth Rogen,’ an actor who’s the VCU’s model of Nick Fury. The actor is the one bridge that ties all Vought-produced superhero movies collectively, together with Black Noir: Riot and The Deep: Rising Tide. What’s nice in regards to the cameo is that it does not break the present’s logic by having Rogen play a second character – his intercourse cam shopper may very simply nonetheless be ‘Seth Rogen,’ going incognito to indulge his wishes. In a enjoyable meta-twist, episode 5 additionally introduces The Boys‘ take on Stan Lee, performed by Paul Reiser. Lee served as a producer and appeared in virtually each Marvel movie earlier than his passing, very like Rogen has appeared in each season of the present. If the pattern continues, it is going to be enjoyable seeing the place Rogen makes his cameo each season as The Boys strikes ahead.
