“The Boys” removed the bulge.
Chace Crawford has revealed that his character in the Amazon Prime superhero series “The Boys” was originally supposed to be very well-endowed.
Crawford plays “The Deep,” an aquatic superhero with a scandalous private life, and is one of the main characters in “The Boys” comic book and television show.
An official Amazon calendar including an unairbrushed photo of his huge bulge was released when the show first premiered in 2019, but fans noticed something was fishy when Crawford appeared on the show without his Big Boy.
The 36-year-old actor recently confirmed that his character was supposed to have a comically large penis but the Amazon executives were not amused when they learned he was wearing a prosthetic penis under his skintight costume.
“[Showrunner Eric] Kripke was like, ‘We get no notes from Amazon, but the first one we got was that can’t f – – king happen, we’ve got to take that out,’ ” the “Gossip Girl” star told Daily Mail Australia. “And we had to edit it out.”
He explained that the production team was made to use CGI effects to shrink his character’s penis in scenes that had already been filmed.
Crawford first spoke out about the shocking promo picture when it was released in 2019. He was reportedly laughing and groaning during the interview, but appeared to have fun with it.
“I got a lot of weird DMs in my inbox,” Crawford told Entertainment Weekly. “A lot of love, a lot of love!”
He wasn’t bulging on giving away any spoilers but claimed that the eye-popping prosthetic was supposed to be featured in the plot somehow.
“There is a story behind that, but I’m sworn to secrecy by Eric Kripke,” he added. “I wish I could give you a good answer, but we’ll never know. It will forever remain a mystery. We will never know!”
