The first three episodes of The Boys season 4 are now streaming on Prime Video, and the premiere sees the return of The Deep's (Chase Crawford) octopus lover, Ambrosius.

There's a sentence we never expected to type, but he's a... unique fella is our Kevin.

First introduced in season 3's debauched "Herogasm" episode, Ambrosius has been living in secret in Deep's apartment at Vought Tower. The Lord of the Seven Seas' superpowers allow him to communicate with his cephalopod significant other, and if you thought she sounded familiar, it's because showrunner Eric Kripke enlisted an A-list actor to voice the character: Tilda Swinton (Doctor Strange, Avengers: Endgame).

"Once we decided we were going to have Deep have regular conversation with his octopus wife, we just wanted the biggest, classiest British Oscar-winning actress we could possibly find," Kripke tells EW. "That's a reasonably short list. We didn't know Tilda. It's not like some of our other cameos where they're friends of friends and we reach out to them. We just reached out to a rep and sent her the script. To her everlasting credit, her rep was like, 'She loves this and thinks it's hilarious and would love to do it."

"Watching the classiest possible actress record the dumbest possible sh*t was one of the great professional days of my life," he adds.

Swinton isn't the only season 4 guest star, so be sure to keep watching.

Did you recognize Ambrosius' voice? Have you been enjoying season 4 of The Boys so far? Drop us a comment down below.

"The world is on the brink. Victoria Neuman is closer than ever to the Oval Office and under the muscly thumb of Homelander, who is consolidating his power," reads the official season 4 synopsis. "Butcher, with only months to live, has lost Becca’s son as well as his job as The Boys’ leader. The rest of the team are fed up with his lies. With the stakes higher than ever, they have to find a way to work together and save the world before it’s too late."

Returning cast members include Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and Cameron Crovetti, along with new recruits Susan Heyward, Valorie Curry, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

The first three episodes of The Boys season 4 will be available to stream from June 13th, with new instalments dropping weekly through to the season finale on July 18.

The talent they keep getting involved is amazing. That WF cameo also caught me off guard and was so well done.
lazlodaytona - 6/15/2024, 6:25 PM
@UniqNo - ok. I guess. Some might consider it too far or an utterly ridiculous concept.
Mrtoke - 6/15/2024, 7:47 PM
@lazlodaytona - which is why it perfectly fits this utterly ridiculous show...which I love It for
Mrtoke - 6/15/2024, 7:48 PM
@lazlodaytona - I'm guessing you mean the WF cameo. Haven't seen that part yet. Only on 1st episode.
UniqNo - 6/16/2024, 2:08 AM
@lazlodaytona - What 'concept' are you referring to exactly?
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:20 PM
@UniqNo - of having guest starts visit just because they're stars.
I love Will Ferral but his cameo was just awkward and completely cliched
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:21 PM
@UniqNo - Will Ferral on "East Bound and Down?" fit perfectly

I did chuckle when I heard the voice and thought it sounded familiar so cool to see that it was Tilda.

Anyway , I’m liking the season so far (not as much as 3 or 1 but probably on par with 2)…

Sister Sage is probably the most intriguing character so far for me , Homelander having someone as smart and component as her as his second in command is terrifying.

@TheVisionary25 - She does a great job and the character is very intriguing. I curious what her motives are
TheVisionary25 - 6/15/2024, 4:38 PM
@Evansly - yeah

Is it just so he can exercise her mental abilities and have a challenge or is there some greater agenda considering I don’t think she would be cool with the type of people Homelander appeals to.
MyCoolYoung - 6/15/2024, 5:06 PM
@TheVisionary25 - I definitely think she’s hiding something in regards to her motives
Apophis71 - 6/15/2024, 7:50 PM
@TheVisionary25 - There is a possibility that as he was making a huge deal about grey hairs that is part of why he wants the smartest person on the planet on his team is something to do with that more than about anything else.

I deffo thin she has other motives, considering her insight the odds she didn't work out who realy leaked intel is slim, the odds she didn't know they were being watched when she invited the super fans to their death is slim too. There is no sound logic to why she would get firecracker onto the team either I can think of. She is ensuring trust from Homelander whilst intentionaly overlooking things that can reveal how fake and villainous he is and if trusted enough to make some form of elixir of youth for homelander she could trick him into taking something that nerfs his powers.

Or I could be wrong and there are more layers of double, triple bluffs going on and planned plot twists in play. Liking this season but feels slower, less action and more intellectual but at this point been the season I've probably enjoyed least whilst at the same time more curious about where they are heading and less able to predict where they are going which is keeping me locked in.
Evansly - 6/15/2024, 4:30 PM
I definitely paused it to confirm it was her in the scene.

Enjoying the season so far. Looking forward to seeing how it develops

Sounds about right. My initial thought was someone along the lines of Julie Andrews or such, just that kind of gravitas. Tilda Swinton is on point, and I love that she did such a role, given it (or even The Chosen One) is a role most wouldn't think her to take.
lazlodaytona - 6/15/2024, 6:27 PM
@IAmAHoot - I mean, we are talking about a worse version of Aquaman who literally f***s sea-life. I like the "boys" but they often take it too damn far.
Ghoul - 6/15/2024, 6:47 PM
@lazlodaytona - isn’t that the point though? He’s supposed to be an aquaman ripoff that plays into the joke of it. Aquaman is often ripped on even in mcu movies for rumors he’s hooking up with sea life so it’s playing on that premise. Like I get it’s boundary pushing I guess but I don’t see why that’s a problem or too far and the whole point of the boys is to make fun of and satirize comic book stuff in exactly that way
Ghoul - 6/15/2024, 6:55 PM
@lazlodaytona - I guess I mean I thought part of the boys is focusing on the plot/story but a much bigger part is using it as a vehicle to send up superheroes in an x rated fashion so I kinda went in knowing that’s the goal
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:14 PM
@Ghoul - won't argue with you. you are correct. just octapussy-f***ing just is WAY out there for me
Ghoul - 6/17/2024, 8:21 PM
@lazlodaytona - no argument there either! Fully agree and get your point too it has some extremely messed up even potentially past the line stuff and that one in particular is definitely out there!
ModHaterSLADE - 6/15/2024, 4:34 PM
Cameos this season have been good so far.
lazlodaytona - 6/15/2024, 6:30 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - literally JDM takes up 110% takes up all of them.
Mrtoke - 6/15/2024, 7:50 PM
@lazlodaytona - difference between cameo and a recurring character, mate
ModHaterSLADE - 6/15/2024, 8:19 PM
@lazlodaytona - That's called a support character for the season bruh...
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:18 PM
@Mrtoke - ok 'mate' what are you like a Butcher wanna be?
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:18 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - thanks for the clarity
Mrtoke - 6/17/2024, 2:38 PM
@lazlodaytona - you’re mad cause you got corrected loll
lazlodaytona - 6/17/2024, 2:42 PM
@Mrtoke - i'm actually not mad at all. just trying to have a decent conversation on here
Mrtoke - 6/17/2024, 9:52 PM
@lazlodaytona - well, I've been on a roll going back and forth on my free time. Do I have better things to do? Absolutely. Will I do them? Abso-friggin-lutely not.
lazlodaytona - 6/18/2024, 9:21 AM
@Mrtoke - That's funny dude :D
Mrtoke - 6/19/2024, 1:11 AM
@lazlodaytona - patronizing, are we? Rude
lazlodaytona - 6/20/2024, 11:02 AM
@Mrtoke - again, taking what I said wrongly. I genuinely thought your statement was funny
Mrtoke - 6/20/2024, 3:20 PM
@lazlodaytona - oh yeah. Don’t take me seriously on here. Couldn’t care less how others respond to me. I’m here for shits and giggles whenever I have free time
WEAPONXOXOXO - 6/15/2024, 4:51 PM
A-List MCU Actor Will Ferrell was on too.
lazlodaytona - 6/15/2024, 6:32 PM
@WEAPONXOXOXO - saw that. what a waste of talent. His cameos in "East Bound and Down" were way epically better.
TheLobster - 6/15/2024, 4:54 PM
I’ve been loving this season so far and as soon as I saw it was Tilda voicing the octopus - I laughed out loud.
WhateverItTakes - 6/15/2024, 6:15 PM
Sister Sage is annoying as [frick]
lazlodaytona - 6/15/2024, 6:34 PM
@WhateverItTakes - dude, i like her just because she's beyond smart enough to challenge Homelander's authority. I mean, she'll meet her demise by Homelander but at least she challenges him to the point he 'considers' listening.
SonOfAGif - 6/15/2024, 6:57 PM
@WhateverItTakes - I like her. She's extremely strategic and the only one who says what the others won't. On top of that, Homelander hates being surrounded by the cowardly Seven and also hates people who talk back to him. He's a detriment to himself and Sister Sage is the reality check he needs.
