Jack Quaid Takes the Lead in Thrilling New Film ‘Novocaine’!


Jack Quaid, known for his breakout role in The Hunger Games and his acclaimed performance as Hughie Campbell in Amazon’s hit series The Boys, is poised to make a dazzling mark in the action film arena. He’s slated to take center stage in Novocaine, an upcoming adrenaline-pumping thriller directed by the talented duo behind Villains, Dan Berk and Robert Olsen. In this high-octane flick, Quaid will embody Nathan Caine, a man grappling with CIPA, a rare congenital condition rendering him impervious to pain.

Caine’s existence is a meticulously choreographed dance, where even the act of eating is a measured affair to avoid self-inflicted harm. However, his world is shattered when a bank heist rocks his foundation, and the woman he loves is cruelly snatched away. Fueled by desperation, Caine transforms his condition into a formidable advantage, embarking on a harrowing mission to rescue his beloved. The script, penned by Lars Jacobson, promises a heart-pounding narrative.

A scion of Hollywood royalty, Jack Quaid is the offspring of the illustrious Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid. Since his auspicious debut, he’s carved a niche for himself in the entertainment industry. From his stint in HBO’s Vinyl to his acclaimed portrayal of Hughie Campbell, Quaid has proven his mettle. His cinematic credits, including Plus One, 2021’s Scream, and the summer blockbuster Oppenheimer, have garnered widespread acclaim. Beyond the silver screen, Quaid lends his voice to the neurotic Starfleet ensign Brad Boimler in Star Trek: Lower Decks, and even donned the character in live-action for a highly praised crossover with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. He’s also breathed life into the iconic characters of Clark Kent and Superman in the animated reimagining My Adventures With Superman.


The anticipation surrounding Novocaine is palpable, as it gears up for production early next year, contingent on the resolution of the ongoing actors’ strike. The film’s journey will be closely followed, especially as it makes waves at the American Film Market. Keep an eye out for updates on this thrilling venture and Jack Quaid’s ascension into the realm of action stardom. Additionally, fans can look forward to Quaid’s forthcoming appearances in the action-comedy Heads of State alongside Idris Elba and John Cena, as well as the highly anticipated fourth season of The Boys.
