Famous for playing a complex range of characters, he became a household name after starring in Grey’s Anatomy as Denny Duquette. Furthermore, he has also appeared in many episodes of Supernatural and The Good Wife.
He also showcased his acting chops with his performance in The Walking Dead as Negan., making his first appearance in the finale of the sixth season as the main antagonist for the seventh and eighth seasons of the show.
Jeffery Dean Morgan joins The Boys
The Boys has been known to make some interesting casting decisions including Simon Pegg as Huey’s father considering his resemblance to the character in the comics and Jensen Ackles as Evil Captain America, Soldier Boy.
Fans will be treated to more interesting casting in season 4 as Jeffery Dean Morgan joined the team as a recurring cast member. Even though we still don’t know which character he will be portraying, fans have come up with some interesting choices including Tek Knight.
Tek Knight is a parody of Iron Man, having no superpowers and relying on his gadgets. He also has a complicated relationship with his sexuality though being highly homophobic. Considering we have many older superheroes join the roster, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to see Tek Knight join in.
Why Jeffery Dean Morgan fits the bill?
The actor has already starred in a few comic book movies including Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice where he briefly played Bruce Wayne’s father. He also played a twisted superhero named the Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen.
Since Eric Kripke and Jeffery Dean Morgan have already worked together in Supernatural, it seems this will be a smooth transition. Jensen Ackles too joined The Boys because of his previous working relationship in Supernatural with Eric Kripke and people loved Soldier Boy.
