The Boys' Karl Urban Got A Lord Of The Rings Vet To Help With Billy Butcher

There's a lot of swearing on the Prime Video series "The Boys," but the most satisfying swears on the series come with a cockney accent. Billy Butcher, the embittered Englishman played by Karl Urban, swears like a sailor on shore leave, and he does so with gusto. But how exactly did Urban, a New Zealand native, manage to create such a killer cockney accent? It turns out he had a little help from an old friend from his time on Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings.”
