Patrick Schwarzenegger reveals he showed his father, Arnold Schwarzenegger, pictures from the set of The Boys spin-off – and Arnie reacted hilariously.
He looked at me and said, “What the hell are you filming?” I replied: “This is the series” Boys “… To understand it, you need to watch one episode, otherwise I will not be able to formulate what is happening in it””.
The spin-off is described as “an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of teenage Supermen at a time of ‘hormonal riot’ as they test their physical, sexual and moral boundaries.” The series is set in a superhuman college where young people are being tested in a Hunger Games style.
Schwarzenegger is reportedly playing a character called Golden Boy, although he neither confirmed nor denied this in an interview with Variety. The actor originally auditioned for the role of Homelander in the original series, but the role went to Anthony Starr.
Filming is currently underway in Canada and the actor added: “It’s a lot of fun on set and it’s just a kick-ass comedy. It’s kind of like ‘Euphoria’ with superheroes.”
