No one likes to be called into the principal’s office. Yet, it seems that every member of the Glee team (coach included) has spent time across the desk of Principal Figgins. Find out the inside scoop from Iqbal Theba, the actor who plays the most frustrated man at McKinley High.
Theba is nothing like his uptight character. Figgins seems always on the verge of a meltdown. Whether he’s thwarting Sue Sylvester’s sexual advances or trying to stem anarchy on school grounds, he constantly struggles to keep order at McKinley High. It’s not easy being principal. Read some of his best quotes (from IMDB) below.
“I need those parents happy! They found out we’ve been serving the children prison food.”
“Only last Friday at the football game they tried to spell out “GO TEAM” and they spelled out “TO GAME”
“Silence, children. Silence. First, an announcement. The toilets are broken again. We are fixing the problem, but let me warn you. There will be zero tolerance for anyone soiling school grounds. We’re not going to have a repeat of last time.”
While Figgins is hilarious, he’s not the only fantastic “grown-up” at McKinley High. Tell us your favorite in the poll below.
