Jack Quaid Discusses Working with Chris Nolan on ‘Oppenheimer’

Starting off his career with The Hunger Games franchise, Jack Quaid got his big break as Hughie Campbell in Amazon Prime’s action drama The Boys. He has since starred in a number of films, TV shows, and other projects and got the opportunity to work with Christopher Nolan in his upcoming war drama Oppenheimer. Based on the 2005 book American Prometheus, the film follows theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer, who developed the first nuclear bomb.

Quaid stars alongside some of the iconic actors in the film, including Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. During an appearance on the Bingeworthy podcast, he talked about working with the Interstellar director and shared that he had an incredible experience starring in the film.

Jack Quaid Talks About Starring in a Christopher Nolan Film

Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is set to release in July and has been in talks for being one of the biggest movies of the year. The ensemble cast of the film features several Hollywood stars, including Cillian Murphy, Robert Doweny Jr., Florence Pugh, and Matt Damon, along with The Boys star Jack Quaid.

This is his first project with director Christopher Nolan, and he has shared that he had an incredible experience working on the film with the Inception director. The 31–year–old actor also shared that it was a great opportunity to see the great actors and the filmmaker do their thing and also to learn from them.

“Shooting that was such an incredible experience. Like, I’m like a blip in that movie, but it was just so incredible to sit there and watch true masters do what they do.”

He also shared that he is incredibly happy and grateful to have this opportunity and still can’t believe that he’s starring in a Christopher Nolan movie. He portrays theoretical physicist Richard Feynman who was also among the scientists working on the Manhattan Project.

Jack Quaid Was Starstruck By Christopher Nolan

During an interview with GQ, Jack Quaid shared that he was blown away by the movie’s set and the director’s work. “The way that he chooses to shoot scenes, he’s so absolutely confident in the way that he works,” the Plus One actor shared. He also stated that he was starstruck by the Dunkirk director.

“I got kind of starstruck, especially when he would do the ‘director’s point,’ that framing thing [directors do] with their hands,” Quaid said. Talking about his character in Oppenheimer, he said that he researched scientist Richard Feynman, in order to prepare for his role. The film is set to release next month along with Greta Gerwig’s Barbie starring Margot Robbie, and both films are expected to have an intense box office battle.

Oppenheimer is set to release on July 21, 2023.

Jack Quaid is a Younger, Clumsier Man of Steel

The new animated series from Adult Swim and Max follows Clark Kent in his early days at The Daily Planet alongside Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen.

Jack Quaid is perhaps best known as a hater of superheroes on The Boys. Now, he’s going to portray the biggest superhero of them all.

The new trailer for Adult Swim’s upcoming animated series My Adventures With Superman finds Quaid lending his voice to the Man of Steel. Quaid’s Clark Kent is joined by Alice Lee as Lois Lane and Ishmel Sahid as Jimmy Olsen. The three are newcomers at The Daily Planet in the series, and Lois sees the newly–arrived Superman as their key to graduating to “real reporters.”

So far, Lois has no idea that Superman himself works right beside her – though the fact that Clark’s clumsiness inadvertently triggers his powers could very well tip her off.

“I can do this! I’m gonna hide my powers and be a normal man having a normal day, starting now,” the hero says in the new trailer, right before accidentally ripping the handle off a door.

My Adventures With Superman was originally announced in 2021, alongside Batman: Caped Crusader. The latter show was canceled by HBO Max last year, but saved by Amazon. It will probably be a while before we see anything from it, but Quaid’s Man of Steel will be soaring this summer.

My Adventures With Superman will premiere with back–to–back episodes at midnight on Adult Swim on Thursday, July 6, with new episodes following every Thursday after that and streaming the next day on Max. Check out the key art below and the trailer above.

Jack Quaid Comments on Brief Role in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

Jack Quaid, who has a small voice role in the film, is excited to see Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on the big screen.

After years of anticipation, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has made its way to movie theaters. The animated superhero sequel features a wide array of Spider-People from alternate realities, and an ensemble voice cast has been enlisted to bring the various web-slingers to life. Leading the cast are Shameik Moore as Miles Morales, Earth-42’s Spider-Man, alongside Hailee Steinfeld as Gwen Stacy, a Spider-Woman from another universe.

In the new film, a brief scene reveals the Peter Parker from this Gwen Stacy’s universe. That incarnation of Peter is voiced by Jack Quaid. Taking to Twitter after the movie was release, Quaid offered some high praise to the movie while letting his followers know about his own involvement as a part of the cast, albeit briefly.

Quaid tweeted, “Saw Spider-Verse. Loved Spider-Verse. I’m *technically* IN Spider-Verse (for like a second). I can’t say enough good things about this movie. Go see it, it’s unbelievable. Congrats to the amazingly talented team behind it.”

Quaid is very well known for his main role in the superhero satire series The Boys. He also recently took part in another animated superhero project, voicing Alberto Falcone in the animated film Batman: The Long Halloween. He is also voicing Clark Kent in the upcoming animated series My Adventures with Superman, coming to Adult Swim this year. His other recent voiceover work includes Harvey Girls Forever!, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Solar Opposites. He will appear in Christopher Nolan’s new movie Oppenheimer, coming to theaters in July.

Latest Trailer for ‘Strange New Worlds’ Features ‘Lower Decks’ Characters

With all the Star Trek series coming out today, it was only natural that there would be crossovers, but the second season of has a special appearance from some characters from an animated series.

Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome are set to guest star as Ensigns Boimler and Mariner from Star Trek: Lower Decks, and we have our first look at them thanks to the latest trailer for the second season of Strange New Worlds. Watch this:

Here’s the official description for Strange New Worlds 2:

In series two of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Captain Christopher Pike, confronts increasingly dangerous stakes, explores uncharted territories, and encounters new life and civilisations. The crew will also embark on personal journeys that will continue to test their resolve and redefine their destinies.

It’s actually curious how Boimler and Mariner appear in Strange New Worlds since Lower Decks takes place after The Next Generation, which happens way after The Original Series. My guess is they could find their way into the Enterprise via time travel, and it’s possible they know all about the stories of Pike, Kirk, and Spock long after they’ve retired.

Then again I’m just speculating. Lower Decks is just a fun little variation to the Trek formula, and I’m happy to see Boimler and Mariner get some more attention. It would be great if we got to see the rest of the Cerritos crew in live-action, even if just for a little bit.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds premieres on Paramount+ on June 15.

Jack Quaid Set to Star in ‘Companion’

Drew Hancock wrote the script and will also direct the movie.

Jack Quaid, one of the stars of Amazon’s The Boys, has signed on to topline Companion, a sci-fi thriller from the team behind last year’s horror hit Barbarian.

Drew Hancock wrote the original script and is making his directorial debut with the feature, whose many plot points are being kept hush-hush.

Despite the secretive nature of the project, the pedigree is notable. Zach Cregger, who wrote and directed Barbarian, is producing the feature along with Raphael Margules and J.D. Lifshitz of BoulderLight Pictures, right now some of the biggest hustlers in town, and horror kingpin Roy Lee of Vertigo.

BoulderLight’s Tracy Rosenblum and Vertigo’s Andrew Childs will executive produce.

Companion was won by New Line in a hot horror auction near the beginning of the year. It was initially going to act as BoulderLight and Cregger’s follow-up to Barbarian before the filmmaker switched tracks to focus on his own script, Weapons, also now casting and at New Line. But the team helped Companion land not just a home but greenlit the start of production, backing Hancock to make his directorial debut.

Quaid is having a geek moment this week. The actor is one of the voice stars of the popular Paramount+ animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks and starring in another hit Star Trek show, Strange New Worlds. In the trailer for the series, it was revealed that he would be crossing his character, Ensign Boimler, over to the live-action realm when the new season begins June 17.

Quaid also starred in Paramount’s 2002 reboot of Scream alongside legacy cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, and next appears as part of the all-star cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, which includes Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, and Emily Blunt. Oppenheimer is due to hit theatres on July 21.

The actor is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content, and Sloane Offer.

Star Trek: Lower Decks Stars Enter the World of Live Action

The Lower Decks crew have entered live–action!

The new trailer for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2, premiering on Paramount+ this June 15, brings with it our first look at the big crossover event. Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome, who voice the animated characters Beckett Mariner and Brad Boimler on Star Trek: Lower Decks, will embody their characters in live–action form.

“Surprise!” Newsome’s Mariner tells a perplexed Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and Spock (Ethan Peck), alongside a noticeably purple–haired Boimler.

Quaid and Newsome will appear in a season 2 episode directed by Jonathan Frakes, a.k.a. Captain Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard. The hour will also feature animation in addition to the actors’ live–action performances.

Quaid previously teased the television event to EW by saying, “Ethan Peck and I have a bromance for the ages. We call it Spoimler: Spock and Boimler. It’s amazing, but that whole cast is so friendly and welcoming and cool. We just had a ball, and we got to be directed by Jonathan Frakes. So what could be better?”

The trailer teases that Spoimler bromance with Spock giving Boimler the Vulcan salute as he’s about to beam off ship. “Live long and prosper, Mr. Boimler,” he says.

The footage also gives fans a fresh look at Paul Wesley’s James T. Kirk and new addition to the cast Carol Kane, who will portray the recurring role of Pelia.

Returning are Rebecca Romijn as Una Chin–Riley, Jess Bush as Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’An Noonien–Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Erica Ortegas, and Babs Olusanmokun as Joseph M’Benga.

Episodes of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will drop weekly every Thursday starting June 15.
