The Boys Cast Confirm What We Suspected About Antony Starr's On-Set Behavior

Amazon Prime Video jumped onto the superhero bandwagon when the platform launched "The Boys" in 2019. Based on the comic book of the same name, the satirical take on superhero culture produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg was met with positive reviews thanks to its sharp writing and stellar performances.

The series focuses on a ragtag group of vigilantes who band together to take down Vought, a media conglomerate that manages the world's most powerful and popular superheroes, who are often known to misuse their powers. At the center of Vought's super portfolio is The Seven, a riff on the Justice League. The star-studded team is the company's largest moneymaker, with their faces gracing all sorts of merchandise and blockbuster films and, occasionally, the news when they're "saving" the day.

While all looks peachy on the outside, The Seven is filled with rotten apples, with the most nefarious being their leader: Homelander, a not-so-subtle take on Superman. Beyond the courageous and heroic facade lies an unhinged maniac obsessed with power. Antony Starr, who plays Homelander, has received considerable praise from audiences for his maniacal performance. There's more to the actor than meets the eye, especially when it comes to his on-set behavior. Here's what it's really like to work with the man behind Homelander, according to Antony Starr's co-stars.

Antony Starr is known to show up late on-set

While Homelander has done some pretty nasty stuff, Antony Starr's biggest sin on the show seems to be related to his punctuality. During a playful game of Buzzfeed Celeb's "Who's Who" with the cast of "The Boys," the actors were asked "Who's most likely to show up late to set with a cup of coffee?" Starr's Seven teammates — namely The Deep actor Chace Crawford and A-Train actor Jessie T. Usher — called the Homelander star out, pointing at him.

Starr took the accusations like a champ, telling the camera, "It would be me; I plan on coming late everyday." Another question asked the cast, "Who's most like their character?" The players, which also included Jack Quaid and Karen Fukuhara, also all called out Starr. The actor was surprised by the laughter of his co-stars, asking them, "What? Did you all point at me?"

While it's hard to know just how Starr operates on-set to a T, it's clear from this video interview that — despite showing up late — he's still loved by his co-stars, who frequently laughed and traded quips with the New Zealand native.
