Jensen Ackles shocked fans of The Boys when he revealed that he would be playing the role of Soldier in season 3. Jensen who is primarily known for his television presence was a great addition to the cast and the reveal itself is quite amazing due to the fact that Soldier Boy is supposed to be a parody of Captain America, and Jensen himself was offered the role of Captain America but had to turn it down.

With the recent photos of him as Soldier Boy in The Boys Season 3, we are taking a look at five of his roles to give you a better idea of what he can bring to the show.
Eric Brady (Days of Our Lives)
The fifth actor to portray the role, Jensen Ackles joined the cast of Days of Our Lives in 1997. He played the role for three years until he departed the show. The character by many was described as a heartthrob and Jensen’s portrayal of him came with much popularity. This was one of his earliest roles and the one that shot him to fame.
Alec McDowell (Dark Angel)
Jensen has been no stranger to sci-fi dramas and so was the case again with Dark Angel where he played the role of Alec McDowell, an assassin created by the government and trained to be a soldier. Jensen played the role of the character really well, and it’s still one of his best performances.
Jason Teague (Smallville)
Jensen joined the cast of Smallville in season four as Jason Teague and remained a series regular for the entire season. He meets Lana Lang in Paris with whom he has a loving relationship, Jason then follows her back to Smallville where he takes up the job of an assistant football coach. But he is there with ulterior motives as well, and so his role takes a bit of an antagonistic turn. Jason Teague was the first time Jensen played the role of a villain and he was pretty convincing in it.
Red Hood (Batman: Under The Red Hood)
Jensen lent his voice to the character of Jason Todd/Red Hood in the direct-to-video animated film Batman: Under The Red Hood. His voice work received acclaim from both critics and fans for the amount of range he brought to that role and just how convincing he was as the Anti-Hero.

Dean Winchester (Supernatural)
Talking about actors who embody their roles, Dean Winchester is one of them. At this point, you can’t see anyone else play the role of Dean other than Jensen for he has dedicated a better decade of his career to this demon-hunter character and is the one that people recognise him the most. It is the one that has brought him the most fame and a great showcase for his acting abilities.
