Milo Murphy's Law Wiki

Oh, that's not a curse! That's just inexperienced casting.

— Marcus after Murphy's Law ruins his hat on a fishing trip

Marcus Underwood is the husband of Doctor Eileen Underwood and the father of Zack Underwood.

He is voiced by Phil LaMarr.


He seems to be easy going and calm under pressure, as shown during his and Zack's fishing trip with Martin and Milo. Initially, he was skeptical of the existence of Murphy's Law, attributing the mishaps to things like 'inexperienced casting'. But once things really started going wrong, he was quick to accept it and even quicker to help.

He loves to tease and scare his son and has been doing so all of Zack's life.

Physical Appearance[]

Marcus has a round face, brown eyes, and dark skin. He has short, dark brown hair that is receding and a goatee.

He wears a blue short-sleeved shirt with a darker blue color on the ends of the sleeves and the collar. His knee-length shorts are beige, and he wears a pair of brown sandals that have a thick strap across each foot.



He was shown in a flashback with his son and his wife on a boating trip where Zack got scared by a fish that landed on their boat.
