Jack Quaid is slowly becoming a popular name and a rising star in Hollywood. His role as Hughie in The Boys has brought him to fame and made him an interesting actor to watch out for. However, being the son of actors Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan, he has been called out and labeled as a ‘Nepo Baby’ and assumedly benefiting from the legacy of his two movie star parents.
