Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Be The Voice Of Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D.

4787 Other than the use of Agent Phil Coulson, I believe it's been said that the S.H.I.E.L.D. television series from Joss Whedon will not be tieing directly into the various Marvel Studios movies.

However, as it is S.H.I.E.L.D., some sort of Samuel L. Jackson Nick Fury cameo - at least in the first episode - would seem like a no-brainer, in addition to the the ratings it would help bring in.

So far though, Jackson hasn't heard much about an appearance, but does offer that perhaps he could be the voice of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"I don't know. I keep hearing about it, and I haven't talked to Joss about it," Jackson told MTV. "But in my mind, I would tend to think that he would, if nothing else, be like Charlie in 'Charlie's Angels.' At least be the voice!"

Samuel L. Jackson also reiterated to MTV what we previously heard in that he will have a larger role in Captain America 2.

It's a full-on role, from the original script that I read. It's a full-on S.H.I.E.L.D. operation in 'Captain America.' But I don't know — I'm meeting with the directors this week to see what happens."

The S.H.I.E.L.D. series looks to debut this Fall on ABC and recently rounded out the cast by adding a sixth Agent.

Clark Gregg stars as Agent Coulson, with Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caesteckeras Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, and Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May.
