Josh McDermitt: I Loved That Eugene Watched Abraham and Rosita Have Sex!
The Walking Dead’s Eugene Porter (Josh McDermitt) may not know of a cure for the zombie apocalypse, but when it comes to social ineptitude, this “scientist” is a pro. Case in point: The mullet fan casually watched from the self-help section as Abraham Ford (Michael Cudlitz) and Rosita Espinosa (Christian Serratos) had sex, and he didn’t see anything wrong with that. As viewers, we found Eugene’s behavior unsettling, but Josh reveals that he’s a big fan of that moment. Why? Let’s let him explain.
“I loved that we could do that moment because that was straight from the comics. It's just cool to see moments from the comics come to life on television and that's so creepy and awesome for that character,” he tells TV Guide. “I absolutely loved it and it was such a fun scene to shoot with aftermath of getting caught by Tara and that sort of thing. It was so fun. It was such a great, great scene.”
We’ll admit the scene was one of the show’s lighter, funnier moments, but we still think Eugene needs to do something about that behavior, don’t you?
Another person who is a fan of that library sex scene is Michael Cudlitz. As a matter of fact, the 49-year-old has been very vocal about the fact that TWD should have more sex scenes. “That’s just a sex scene, and that is what I feel would be going on in this world,” he said recently. “There would be fighting and sex, and a lot of it. And I think the show needs more of it because that is one of the elements that actually brings in conflict.”
Do you agree that TWD needs more sex? Still find Eugene’s desire to watch weird? Sound off below and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
