Booked And Busy: Jensen Ackles Suits Up For Role on Amazon's The Boys

Jensen Ackeles

This week on Booked and Busy, we've got daytimers and primetimers for your delectation. Before Greg Vaughan steamed up our screens in Salem, future Supernatural heartthrob Jensen Ackles charmed audiences as Days of Our Lives sweetie Eric Brady. Now that his hit CW shw has wrapped, Ackles is joining Amazon's hit The Boys for Season 3, and he shared a tantalizing glimpse of his (super)heroic get-up for his new gig.

Meanwhile, Ray Liotta made his name with roles like Goodfellas gangster Henry Hill, but he kicked off his career as Another World's Joey. Now, the movie star is headed to New York's Tribeca Film Festival, where his period-piece heist thriller No Sudden Move will make its festival bow before premiering on HBO Max. And fear not, General Hospital fans: Amber Tamblyn, who played Emily Quartermaine, is headed your way soon. Her oft-delayed FX on Hulu show Y: The Last Man will premiere this fall. So let's get Booked and Busy!
