Chace Crawford is making waves in his new role as The Deep, an Aquaman-inspired superhero in Amazon’s comic book show, The Boys. And it turns out his main superpower is being so endowed it defies photo editing technology.
In a promotional ‘The Deep’ calendar sent out to press as part of the show’s marketing campaign, Crawford wears his skin-tight costume against a variety of seasonal backdrops… and in some photos, the incredibly well-fitted suit is unable to hide his bulge.
While the majority of the calendar saw Crawford’s super-bulge Photoshopped down to a tasteful, smooth, Ken Doll-like nothing, this image for the month of March somehow made it through unedited.
There’s also a Valentine’s Day photo where he can be seen showing off his impressive glutes (which reportedly gets its fair share of screen-time on the show).
Crawford has clearly been working out like crazy, and it shows. “I stepped up the frequency when I saw the suit!” He told The Sun earlier this year.“ I work out five times a week as it’s better for anxiety and sleep. I do circuit training, pull-ups, push-ups and bodyweight dips for 40 minutes. I go to the gym in the morning to get it over with and put earphones in because I hate talking to people. I view it as work.”
“When superheroes abuse their superpowers instead of using them for good, The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about The Seven and Vought, the conglomerate that covers up their dirty secrets,” reads the show’s official synopsis. The Boys is billed as a thoroughly adult take on the familiar caped hero genre, so there’s every chance that Crawford’s bulge made it into the calendar as a racy way to create buzz… Either way, given the response to the photos, it’s fair to say the show probably has a new contingent of viewers.
