In a recent conversation on Podcast “Inside of You” with Michael Rosenbaum, Jensen Acrum revealed that many other names were being considered for the role of Soldier Boy before he was shortlisted. “This is something that the studio, that Sony, is talking to some names that are a lot bigger than me and they want to put in a third,” revealed Acrum. And while he has Eric Kripke in his corner, unfortunately, the decision isn’t just his. “Erik said, ‘Look, I know you can do this,'” said Acrum, “but we’re going to have to convince the powers that be.”
The former Winchester is fully aware that his casting campaign requires serious attention and he wants to make sure he shows his gratitude to Kripke even considering him. that. Acks said, “I said, ‘Look, if you’re going to hit me, I want to give you the biggest bat I can. So tell me if there’s anything else I can do, “and he’s like ‘You’ come back good.”‘ From there, it was simply a waiting game in the end. “So he hit the ball for me and then boomed that was it,” explains Acrum. “But I worked for it. It’s not just like ‘Hey, we want to get you into season three.’ No, I have to get it. ”
You can see how Acrum handles things when “The Boys” returns Tuesday on June 3.
