Jeff Ward plays the role of Buggy the Clown in One Piece live action. The Netflix cast is widely known for his role as Deke Shaw in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

One Piece on Netflix centers on the Straw Hat Pirates, a gang of people who decide to go out on a thrilling expedition through dangerous oceans in order to obtain a fabled treasure known as One Piece, while overcoming obstacles and continuing an adventurous journey.

The fantasy adventure series, based on Eiichiro Oda‘s eponymous 1997 Japanese manga, portrays the abundant use of stealth and skill. Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist of the series, is joined by Nami, Zoro, Usopp, and Sanji as they prepare to venture into unexplored waters, where the world proves to be more treacherous and the waters tougher than they could have imagined.

Another character who has gained a lot of attention in the live action version is Buggy the Clown. On the other hand, many people are curious to know who plays the role of Buggy. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Previously, we touched on Nami’s age, Morgan Davies, and Black Cat Pirates.

Jeff’s performance as Buggy was the kind of wild, unrelenting performance that you simply couldn’t turn away from because you can tell that the actor is entirely losing himself in the part, allowing this other person to temporarily take control of his body—and enjoying it immensely.

We laughed carefully out of concern that if we laughed too loudly at the incorrect joke, Ward would simply reach through our screen and drag us into his tent of terrors. Ward’s unpredictable performance was both diabolical and delightful.

Each episode of One Piece feels like a mini-movie since the characters are continuously moving from one place to another. Every new location is a distinct, fully developed universe all on its own, full of nuanced characters whose tales don’t begin or stop in the limited time we spend with them.

Buggy was without a doubt the hero of this particular short film, and his explosive combination of fear, wrath, and plain old crazy kept us on our toes the entire time. In this extremely uncommon case, we’re happy that the evil clown was spared in this season.

Ward gained fame after being cast as Charles Manson in the 2016 television film, Manson’s Lost Girls. He agreed to the part because he believed that “people inherently have a slightly dark side.” He then played Seth Marlowe in the acclaimed horror anthology series, Channel Zero: No-End House, in 2017.

The Buggy the Clown actor was given the part of Deke Shaw in a recurring role in the fifth season of the Marvel Cinematic Universe television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., later in 2017. Originally he had been cast as Virgil, a minor character who dies in the first episode of the season.
