Anyone else watching The Boys starring Karl Urban as a vigilante taking down corrupt Superheroes? Brilliant dark comedy. Seriously, is there anything Karl Urban can't do? Éomer, Bones, Dredd and now Butcher?

NSFW Language Warning!

He was also hilarious as Skurge in Thor: Ragnarok. His face turn was a little clumsy, I thought, but that was on the writers and he made it work.

We watched "The Boys" and liked it. Too short, though. I'd watch another season of it.

I think he also played a villian in one of the Bourne movies, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, I know he's done other stuff, but for me he's like the chameleon king of Fantasy/Sci Fi actors. Any one of those roles could have pigeonholed him, but he somehow seems to defy typecasting.

I remember being quite shocked at how good he was as McCoy. Really the only one of the new actors that I thought captured the original.

I thought he did really well as a villain in one of the Riddick movies.
