Be afraid, be very afraid. There are just two episodes left of "The Boys" Season 2 and after last week's reveal of Stormfront's (Aya Cash) true identity and Nazi roots, combined with the fact that Homelander (Antony Starr) accepted her proposition that they go to war "for the culture," Cash tells TheWrap you should be extremely concerned about the supe duo's plans.
Sacha Baron Cohen Mocks Trump With Job Offer as 'Racist Buffoon': 'You'll Need a Job After Jan 20'
"Borat" star Sacha Baron Cohen hit back at Donald Trump on Saturday, implying that the president was an unfunny yet laughed at "racist buffoon." "Donald–I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit I don't find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I'm always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you'll need a job after Jan. 20. Let's talk!," Baron Cohen wrote on Twitter Saturday, responding to Trump's"Donald–I appreciate the free publicity for Borat! I admit I don't find you funny either. But yet the whole world laughs at you. I'm always looking for people to play racist buffoons, and you'll need a job after Jan. 20.
"I think everyone should be terrified of the two of them together," the Amazon Prime Video star said. "Because her agenda with his strength and narcissism is a dangerous combination. For Stormfront, it's a win to get him on her side and to have all the information now, because they sort of joined up without him having all the information."
"And I think Stormfront is trepidatious about letting him know the real deal and when he responds the way he does, she's like, great, now is the time to take over and make this happen," Cash continued. "So I think we should all be very afraid of where it's going with Homelander and Stormfront."
Last week's episode of "The Boys" Season 2 ended with the— literally, from the Third Reich — who also happens to be the first supe ever created using Compound V. It's moment that connects the Stormfront from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's comics with the one played by Aya Cash on Eric Kripke's Amazon series.
Borat's back, but does 'extreme comedy' really change minds or just push people away?
"How dark is she wanting to go?" a worker at an Oklahoma tanning salon asks, motioning toward a board showing different skin tones. It's still early in the Borat sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and Sacha Baron Cohen's titular character is bringing his daughter Tutar to local businesses for a makeover. "What colour is best for racist family?" he asks in a thick accent. The woman only hesitates a second before answering. "I would say right"What colour is best for racist family?" he asks in a thick accent. The woman only hesitates a second before answering.
But in a departure from the comic-book version, a man, Cash's Stormfront is a woman who was born in Berlin in 1919 and later injected with Compound V by her Nazi scientist husband Fredrick Vought, the founder of Vought. She has outlived both him and their daughter and continued to spread hate for years while disguising herself as superheroes, first as Liberty and now as Stormfront, the newest member of The Supes of the Seven.
"It's quite a big reveal and I think it's a way to link back to the comics and to acknowledge the history of the comics while also giving her another layer of horror and the reveal that she's Liberty and that she's been doing this for a long long time and that Vought's original intent was part of her agenda and she's trying to bring it back," Cash said.
"It's a really fascinating twist, too, when you see what's happened to Vought over the last however many years and where it's come — but where it originally started and the potential that it could go back."
A new episode of "The Boys" Season 2 premieres Friday on Amazon Prime Video.
'The Trial of the Chicago 7' Film Review: Aaron Sorkin's Vital Drama Delivers Both Talk and Action .
On paper, "The Trial of the Chicago 7" feels like it could be a bit of Aaron Sorkin's greatest hits. The drama, which hits select theaters on Friday before heading to Netflix on Oct. 16, has lots of the qualities you can find in previous works that he's written: politics ("The American President," "The West Wing," "Charlie Wilson's War"), legal scenes ("A Few Good Men," "The Social Network") and, most of all, smart people talking fast (pretty much everything Sorkin has done).
