she-hulkThe track record for one-liner catchphrases is pretty solid so far, with the show only having six episodes in its first season. However, Josh Segarra, who plays Augustus “Pug” Pugliese on the show, has a favorite, and it involves being number two.
Pug is a great candidate for fan-favorite character so far. He is a lovable, slightly brainless lawyer, sneaker enthusiast, and co-member of the Division of Superhuman Law with Jen and Nikki. During his memorable entrance, Pug greeted his co-workers with a welcome basket of all the essentials: “Office supplies, snacks, and a map to the best bathroom to poop.” That last one, above all, was so great that he not only left a mark on Segarra, but also on his mother.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Segarra shared, “My mom loved that line, ‘Oh! Best toilet for pooping!’” For the actor, his mother’s appreciation for that moment “made his life”, and it’s all thanks to she-hulk creator Jessica Gao, says. That’s Jess. That’s Jessica Gao. That’s all about her. I am honored to be able to say it,” Segarra continued.
Since that first scene, Pug has been the subject of many other hilarious moments on the show, and his recent chemistry with Ginger Gonzaga’s Nikki as they identify superheroes’ most famous fashion designer was a joy to watch. The future of the character, as well as possible references to the source material, are yet to be discovered, but it definitely looks promising.
