Eric Kripke is adding more actors he’s worked with before to The Boys Season 2. Two more Timeless cast members are joining the series.
If you like the people you’ve worked with in the past, why not work with them again? That’s a rule Eric Kripke follows when it comes to casting, so it wasn’t surprising to see Jim Beaver and Malcolm Barrett on The Boys Season 1. They’re not the only Timeless vets.
Two more Timeless alums are joining The Boys for the second season. Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit have been confirmed, according to Deadline, and we couldn’t be any more excited right now! What’s even better is that we have a little bit of information about their characters—more than just that they’re in recurring roles.
Doumit will play Congresswoman Victoria Neuman. She’s some sort of “wunderkind,” although we do hope a little more on the good side than the wunderkind in that episode of The Twilight Zone! Since Beaver’s character also had a role in government, there’s hope the two paths will cross, but there’s no confirmation Beaver is returning just yet.
Visnjic will play Alistair Adana, a shadowy leader of a mysterious church. He’s also described as charismatic, and with the name “Alistair” and considering this is Kripke, why do I get the sense that he’s a little cultish or villainy? You’ll get why I’m connecting to the name Alistair if you’ve watched Supernatural (another Kripke masterpiece).
Barrett will also return to the series. He was introduced as one of the marketing guys at Voight, but it also turns out he had an intimate run-in with a Supe.
