Jack Quaid

Jack Quaid

American actor Jack Quaid plays the part of Hughie in the series. In the original comic book, Hughie comes from Scotland and his physical appearance resembles English actor and writer Simon Pegg. Pegg was "super chuffed" to be "immortalized as a comic book character" and also wrote the introduction for The Boys Vol.1 collection, "The Name of the Game". Pegg is also known for his role as Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in the rebooted Star Trek (2009) film trilogy, alongside Karl Urban who plays Doctor "Bones" McCoy. Karl Urban stars as Billy Butcher in The Boys. Pegg was originally supposed to play Little Hughie when the comic was made into a movie or series, but because it took so long to make the jump instead he will be playing Hughie's father.
