Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played John Winchester on Supernatural, has also expressed a desire to join The Boys, but Kripke has revealed that his role in The Walking Dead complicates matters slightly. Although Kripke has never hidden his desire to have the actor in the cast of the original Amazon TV series.
