Starr plays the role of Homelander in The Boys, who is the most powerful supes (as the superpowered humans are called in the show) in the world and the leader of The Seven, the premier corporate-owned superhero team modelled over the Justice League. Instead of using his powers for good, as the superheroes are supposed to, Homelander has allowed his fame and abilities to corrupt his mind. Starr has received praise for his performance.

The show also stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher, Nathan Mitchell, Aya Cash, among others. It returns for its season 3 in June this year.
