MARVEL! Two New Agents Join TV’s S.H.I.E.L.D.
We’re getting a clearer picture of what TV’s S.H.I.E.L.D. is shaping up to be. That picture now includes actors Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker and their young, fresh faces. The prospect of a Marvel flavored TV adaptation is still intensely exciting to me. With a name like Joss Whedon behind the series, I’d say there’s a good chance it won’t get flubbed up, either.
So, the ABC Studios project will revolve around the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate, or S.H.I.E.L.D., which is the military law-enforcement agency expected to police super heroes.
Actress Elizabeth Henstridge will play a science genius by the name of Agent Gemma Simmons, THR revealed. She’s joined by Iain De Caestecker, who is all geared up to portray Agent Leo Fitz. Fitz is your techie type,probably not unlike Q from the James Bond series.
Apparently the two, which are the newest characters to be revealed for the upcoming show, spend most of their time together and argue a lot.
Henstridge was last seen in the J.J. Abrams and Mark Schwahn’s pilot called Shelter created for the CW. The proposed seriessounds to me like an American version of Downton Abbey mixed with some Revenge. The drama takes place at a resort. Schwahn created One Tree Hill, by the way.
De Caestecker appeared in the BBC series called The Fades and Young James Herriot. His role got him a best actor nomination at the Scottish BAFTA Awards. He’ll also appear in the feature film, In Fear.
Henstridge and De Caestecker will get to work with Ming-Na, as pilot and weapons expert Agent Melinda May, and Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson. That’s a neat trick for Gregg, too, considering Coulson died in The Avengers film. Do you think he’ll play an A.I. or hologram or something? I’m not too worried. Whedon will explain his presence one way or another.
Speaking of the geek god, Whedon wrote the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot with his his brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen. Whedon also hopes to direct the pilot.
