‘Foo’ or ‘Fool’? A Chat With the Cast of This Fool
Hulu’s This Fool stars comedian Chris Estrada as Julio Lopez, a codependent “punk-ass bitch” who wants to fix everyone else’s problems instead of addressing his own. His latest “project” is his cousin, Luis (Frankie Quiñones), whose release from prison sees him turning to Hugs Not Thugs, the gang-rehabilitation program where Julio works. Joining them on their adventures are the founder of Hugs Not Thugs, Minister Payne (Michael Imperioli), and Julio’s on-and-off-again girlfriend, Maggie (Michelle Ortiz). In a discussion with Vulture, the cast members — alongside executive producer Fred Armisen — shine some light on the generational divide between “foo” and “fool,” the show’s art design, and their favorite moments from the show.
