Why Richie From Scream Looks So Familiar

The "Scream" franchise is back from the dead with its fifth installment. The newest "Scream" sees the return of OG franchise stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette, who are reprising their roles from the first four original films. The famous trio returns 10 years after "Scream 4," and they are yet again joined by new faces. Seeing that most cast members were killed off over the years, it makes sense why we have so many newcomers this time around.

"13 Reasons Why" star Dylan Minnette joins the franchise as Wes Hicks, while "You" actress Jenna Ortega comes on as Tara Carpenter. Another actor joining the fifth "Scream" installment is Jack Quaid, who plays Richie Kirsch. If you found yourself wondering where you've seen Richie before, it's because Quaid stars in one of the most successful streaming shows around. He's also popped up in some major box office flicks and one of the most popular film franchises ever. He also just so happens to be the son of Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid. Here's where you may have seen Jack Quaid before.

Jack Quaid's first role was in 2012's The Hunger Games

Jumping into the acting world is a lot easier if you have famous parents. Case in point: Jack Quaid's first credited role ever was in the smash hit "The Hunger Games." The 2012 film featured Quaid as Marvel, a minor antagonist who got a decent amount of screen time. Marvel was a tribute from District 1 and participated in the 74th Annual Hunger Games alongside Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).

Marvel was one of the Careers — a tribute molded throughout their younger years to participate in the Games, quite handy with a throwing ax and a javelin. He was loyal to his fellow District 1 tribute Glimmer (Leven Rambin). As soon as the Games begin, Marvel viciously kills the District 8 male tribute by slitting his throat, and later the District 7 female tribute.

Marvel is also the son-of-a-you-know-what who kills Rue (Amandla Stenberg) with his javelin. Katniss takes immediate revenge and nails Marvel with a bow to the heart, taking him out. Overall, he finishes 8th out of 24 in the Hunger Games.

Quaid starred in HBO gem Vinyl in 2016

Four years after "The Hunger Games," Jack Quaid starred in HBO original series "Vinyl." The Martin Scorsese-produced project only lasted one season and featured Bobby Cannavale in the lead role. The show revolved around Cannavale's Richie Finestra, a record executive in the 70s. Quaid played Clark Morelle, a junior A&R executive who can't quite find his footing in Richie's company.

Revolving around the music industry in the era of disco allowed the series to have some pretty cool characters — except for Quaid's Clark, that is. "Clark is the least cool person in the office by far," Quaid told Bustle. "I think it's really fun ... to navigate a guy who's kind of a square through the world of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll." He also very much enjoyed his time on the series, saying, "I like playing people who have multiple sides to them, so for the comedic parts it was nice to have some experience in that realm."

Jack Quaid co-starred with Dwayne Johnson in Rampage

2019's "Rampage" starred Dwyane Johnson, who made a successful movie adaptation of the video game of the same name. Earning over $428 million at the global box office (via Box Office Mojo), "Rampage" reached a wide array of moviegoers who got to see Jack Quaid as Connor. A co-worker of Johnson's Davis, Connor was an employee at the San Diego animal sanctuary.

Connor is given the scare of a lifetime when Davis takes him and some other co-workers to an ape sanctuary to meet primate Pavo. Shortly after, gorilla George introduces himself to the group in a dramatic fashion as he comes running toward them out of nowhere, scaring Connor half to death by knocking him over. Unfortunately, there's not much more of Quaid's character to be seen in the film as it mostly revolves around Davis and George from then on out as the ape increases in size and is used to fight other genetically modified animals who are loose in Chicago.

Quaid became a household name thanks to The Boys in 2019

While Jack Quaid already landed some notable roles, his biggest claim to fame is Amazon's "The Boys." Quaid plays Hughie Campbell, one of the vigilantes in the non-superhero group known as The Boys. Hughie has his first brush with The Seven when A-Train (Jessie Usher) literally runs through his girlfriend as she's stepping off a curb. Seeking vengeance against the famous superhero team, Hughie teams up with bad boy Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), who also wants revenge on the "heroes."

In Season 1, Hughie builds a strong friendship with Starlight (Erin Moriarty) and later into Season 2 while he's in hiding. The two finally get the kiss fans longed to see in the finale, but not much is known about what lies ahead for the duo, The Seven or The Boys. According to Quaid, Season 3 is going to be bonkers. "We are doing some insane, insane stuff this season," Quaid told Inverse. "No one is okay." That sounds about right for the foul-mouthed Amazon hit.
