Chicago PD and FBI veteran Josh Segarra is joining the Marvel Universe, according to a new report from Deadline, which says Segarra has been cast in the upcoming She-Hulk TV series.
Marvel had no official comment on the report, which is common; the company doesn’t often comment on casting decisions, because they keep character and project information fairly well under wraps.
Segarra is a longtime player in the Dick Wolf universe of shows. He recurred as Justin Voight, Hank Voight’s (Jason Beghe) son, on Chicago PD until the character was killed off. He then returned to the Wolf-verse this past season with another recurring role on FBI, playing Maggie Bell’s (Missy Peregrym) love interest, Special Agent Nestor Vertiz. That role ended when the characters’ relationship did later in the season.
His other credits include playing supervillain Adrian Chase/Prometheus in Arrow and the Denis Leary-led comedy series The Moodys. Segarra had been cast as the lead of the NBC pilot Night School, based on the Kevin Hart movie of the same name, but the network decided not to pick up that series.
She-Hulk is led by Emmy Award winner Tatiana Maslany (Perry Mason, Orphan Black) in the title role of She-Hulk, aka Jennifer Walters. The cast also includes decorated actress Renee Elise Goldsberry (Girls5Eva), Jameela Jamil (The Misery Index), Ginger Gonzaga (Legit), and Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth reprising their Marvel Cinematic Universe roles.
It is expected to premiere in 2022.
