Biography

In 2012, Quaid made his film debut as Marvel in the film The Hunger Games. In an interview, Quaid explained how he auditioned for the role: "We had torrential downpours, flooding, scorching heat and then a bear would wander onto the set. But it was an amazing bonding experience. We definitely all had a great story to tell about what we did on our summer vacation." He also said that he was warned of a backlash from fans because of his character's dastardly acts: "When I got cast, I was told that people would be spitting on me in the streets."

In 2013, Quaid once again reprised his character, Marvel for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in a cameo appearance. In the same year, Quaid asked fans to help him fund his new film, Roadies, by making donations on the crowdsourcing website Indiegogo. Quaid appeared in the main cast of the short-lived HBO television series Vinyl, which premiered in February 2016.

In 2017, he appeared in Steven Soderbergh’s heist comedy Logan Lucky, and starred as Jordan Welch in the horror comedy film Tragedy Girls, which was released in theaters on October 20, 2017.

On March 6, 2018, Deadline announced that Quaid was cast in the lead role of the Amazon drama series, The Boys. He starred in the role of Hugh "Hughie" Campbell. The series premiered on July 2019. Since its debut, it has been renewed for a second and third season.
