The Boys - Tomer Kapon Cast as Frenchie in Amazon's Superhero Series



Israeli actor, Tomer Kapon (Hostages, Fauda, When Heroes Fly) has joined Amazon's upcoming superhero series, The Boys, per Deadline's exclusive. Kapon will play "the lead role of Frenchie" in Amazon's take on the superhero genre.

The eight-episode Prime Original Series will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and created and written by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (Preacher). The series will be executive produced by Kripke, Goldberg, Rogen, Original Film's Neal H. Moritz (Prison Break), Ori Marmur (Preacher) and Pavun Shetty (New Girl), as well as Point Grey Pictures' James Weaver (Preacher). Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson, who created the comic book on which the series is based, are also slated to co-executive produce.

In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as "the boys," who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.


Kapon’s Frenchie is the unpredictable wild card of The Boys. A brutal warrior when the situation calls for it, living a life of no attachments or responsibilities.
