The Bizarre Duty Jack Quaid Had On The Set Of The Boys Season 2

We are rapidly headed toward the premiere of "The Boys" Season 3 this June on Amazon Prime, and fans of the graphic superhero series couldn't be more excited. The show follows the ragtag group of superhero haters in Jack Quaid's Hughie Campbell, Laz Alonso's Mother's Milk or "MM," Tomer Capone's Frenchie, and more recently, Karen Fukuhara's Kimiko Miyashiro, all led by the incomparable Billy Butcher, played by Karl Urban. Of course, they have every right to hate the "supes," as the superhero team known as The Seven is completely corrupt, run by the Vought company and the United States government, and have personally had a hand in causing tragedy and trauma in each of The Boys' lives.

Season 1 introduced us to Hughie and to Butcher, their backstories, and their relation to the incredibly evil leader of The Seven — Homelander (Antony Starr). The Boys slowly start to make progress by the end of the season after some horrific events and find that they have a superhero on the inside who disagrees with it all in Starlight (Erin Moriarty). By the end of Season 2, we've witnessed Butcher battle to save his son, Frenchie get close to Kimiko, and we discover someone close to The Boys and The Seven who can explode heads on command. Brutal stuff.

As opposed to on-screen, the cast who play characters both from The Seven and The Boys seem to be incredibly close off-screen. In interviews, the cast has even joked about the crazy things that happen when the cameras aren't filming (via New York Comic Con), including a bizarre duty that Quaid had during Season 2 of "The Boys."

Jack Quaid had to cue a dog to hump a stuffed pig

During Season 2 of "The Boys," fans finally get to meet a character from the comics that hadn't yet been adapted by the show — Billy Butcher's dog, Terror. Of course, dogs that are trained to be on camera have cues and certain words to get them to perform the necessary actions, and the action that Terror had to do in particular was to hump a stuffed pig, at least according to Jack Quaid in a recent interview with SyFy.

Quaid explained that in order for the dog to perform the action, for some reason, he was the only person who could give the dog his cues. He added that the verbal trigger was the word "b***r." The actor laughed while noting that somewhere in the behind-the-scenes footage for Season 2 of "The Boys," there's definitely a video of him repeatedly shouting the word at the dog that plays Terror.

Given that the trainers for the dog can't be there in the scene during the shooting, it makes sense that they would have Quaid perform the actual cue for the dog alone. Never mind the fact that it is a pretty funny thing to think about seeing on some behind-the-scenes footage. Either way, there are sure to be more crazy stories from the cast of "The Boys" when press for Season 3 begins soon.
