Interview: Chace Crawford and Jessie T. Usher Talk With Us About ‘The Boys’ Season 2! [SDCC EXCLUSIVE]

3 Min Read

With the imminent approach of The Boys Season Two approaching faster than a speeding A-Train, we had the chance to have a chat with creator and Chace Crawford (The Deep) and the man himself, Jessie T. Usher (A-Train) about both character’s rock bottoms being impacted by Starlight and what that might mean for their futures with The Seven. Read the interview below and listen to the audio here!

There may be spoilers for Season 2 below, here’s your warning!


Nersd and Beyond: Hi, I’m Brittany with Both The Deep and A-Train’s rock bottoms are either directly related to or at least impacted by Starlight. And I was wondering how that would affect both characters as they try to either get back into The Seven or maintain their status within The Seven. What are their relationships going to be like with her, or even with each other? Is there a possible alliance between the two in the cards?

Jessie T. Usher: You know? No one’s ever said that before. No one’s ever made that point, but I mean, you’re absolutely right. I think The Deep’s issue is a little more closely tied to Starlight. A-Train’s is kind of, you know, there’s multiple people and things involved in the issue that’s going on with him, and it’s mostly internal, but having Starlight around definitely makes it a little more difficult for him to navigate the way that he’s used to doing. Does that mean that we’re going to band together in season two to kind of help with that common issue? Not necessarily. (laughing) What can I say about that, Chace?

Chace Crawford: As far as The Deep and Starlight go there, they do address it a little bit in season two. But it’s obviously touchy because how do you, you know, how is that ever okay? How is she ever going to be okay with him being back in The Seven? I don’t know. So, yeah, I guess I can’t give away too much, but I mean, The Deep is on his own thing, and he’s completely on his own journey. And obviously, for selfish reasons, he wants to be back there and is, at least on the surface, very sorry. Probably more sorry for getting caught and getting called out and because he feels embarrassed. And who knows to what depth of authenticity that goes to… so we’ll find out a little bit more.

*Remember to watch The Boys season two starting September 4 on Amazon Prime and stay tuned for interviews with the rest of the cast!*
