'THE BOYS' Star Jack Quaid Reflects Being Nude As Hughie Campbell

Hughie Campbell can't catch a break! As the entire shows lure follows him seeking vengeance for his girlfriends death, when he is finally granted powers people dream of, that of course goes poorly as well.

With each newer installment of seasons in the live-action adaptation of Amazon Prime's, 'The Boys', the story becomes more interesting, the humor becomes darker, and in the case of good old Hughie Campbell, he becomes more nude. Funnily enough, long-time fans of the superhero series can expect nothing less from the show now to deliver disgustingly disturbing content going forward in Season 4, and potentially the spin-off series, 'Gen V'. There was quite literally and repulsively an episode showcasing an annual adult-actioned event where heroes in this universe meet up and have some wild fun.

In the most recent season, that being the third, the show definitely cranked it up a notch with its sickly disgusting nature. The "Ant-Man", Solider-Boy, and following the storyline of Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), inject a chemical capable of granting its consumer tentative superhero abilities, labeled "Temp V", which is an experimental successor to "Compound V", that sees especially Billy Butcher going on a killing rampage.

Butcher was granted a fairly matching power set to that of 'Homelander', who was the entire reason he was more inclined to inject himself with the serum in an attempt to stop the super maniac for good. Hughie, on the other hand, was treated more disrespectfully of course, as while he did gain the powers of swift teleportation, the side effect included of any garment of clothing he may be wearing at the time of teleporting would disappear off his body was added as well.

Surely these moments had to be uncomfortable for actor Jack Quaid to do, right? Well, in an FYC interview with Jack Quaid and DiscussingFilms, he had this to say about shooting those nude moments:

I also loved that the reason why he’s being tempted into this dark side is all because of temp V, and I loved being able to actually play with a superpower. Granted, I had to get naked for a lot of it, but it’s a solid trade-off because Nightcrawler is one of my favorite X-Men and I got naked for Nightcrawler powers! - Jack Quaid

Jack Quaid finds some deserving logic in shooting those bare nude scenes in season 3, as for not the X-Men member 'Nightcrawler' being his favorite staple of that team, he might not have been very adherent to this strange side effect of Hughie's powers showcased. Hopefully, the poor, hilarious moments of disrespecting Hughie Campbell can continue in Season 4, as those are but the funniest of the episodes.
