The pilot episode of the new Amazon Prime Video series Swarm left fans stunned after actor Rory Culkin appeared completely naked in a very lewd scene.
The 33-year-old Hollywood star made a surprise appearance in the horror thriller that follows a pop star, played by Dominique Fishback, as she goes on a murderous rampage following the death of a loved one.
In the first episode, Fishback’s character is seen heading to a nightclub and provocatively dancing with Culkin’s unnamed character, before the pair are seen kissing on a stairwell.
Things then cut to the next morning, when Fishback’s character wakes up to find herself in the stranger’s apartment as he makes breakfast for her.
Surprise: Rory Culkin’s appearance in the new TV series, Swarm, was much more revealing than his fans expected after the actor’s ‘penis’ appeared on screen.
Stripping: Culkin’s character is seen walking around naked in a brief scene before an unexpected shot reveals his penis pressed against a glass container.
A naked Culkin is then seen in the kitchen before returning to bed with a bowl of fruit in hand.
As he kneels on the bed and offers her some strawberries, a shot of the transparent container appears on the screen, with his character’s penis pressed against the glass.
It is currently unclear if the actor was actually nude or used a penile prosthesis for the scene.
Fishback’s character was visibly taken aback by the image, and fans of the series were equally shocked.
Many flocked to Twitter to reveal their shock at the scene as one wrote: “Rory Culkin’s jumpscare in the Swarm pilot actually made me jump.”
Another tweeted: “Why is Rory Culkin pressing his dick against that bowl like that… #swarm.”
‘Rory Culkin swarming, I’ll never look at strawberries the same way again,’ quipped one viewer.
