We can finally put some faces to the names for Amazon's upcoming adaptation of the comic book The Boys.

Deadline reports that Antony Starr (American Gothic), Dominique McElligott (The Last Tycoon), Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Jessie T. Usher (Survivor's Remorse), and Nathan Mitchell (iZombie) have joined Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones) as the leads.

Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and based on the comic by Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson, the show is set in a world where superheroes aren't afraid to embrace the dark side of their fame. A group of vigilantes known as "the boys" make it their mission to bring down the corrupt superheroes using any means necessary. Preacher's Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are set to direct.

Starr will play Homelander, the leader of the superhero team The Seven. McElligott will play Queen Maeve, Usher will play A-Train, and Crawford will play The Deep, all members of The Seven. Mitchell will portray Black Noir. Previously announced cast member Moriarty will play Starlight, a young woman with special powers who dreams to be a real superhero.

There's no release date for The Boys yet, but it's expected to drop sometime in early 2019.
