With little less than two months to the debut of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it is learned that David Conrad has joined the cast in what is described as a reoccurring role, and one that is top-secret.
TV Line theorizes that David Conrad could be playing a character whose description was revealed previously as a "brilliant and quirky scientist;" a male in his 40s.
It's possible that Conrad could be an all-new character for the Marvel Studios TV series or even one from the comic books. Any guesses?
David Conrad is known for roles on Ghost Whisperer, The Firm, Boston Public and Roswell.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, September 24th at 8pm ET on ABC.
Joss Whedon shows us not all heroes are super with "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel's The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (ElizabethHenstridge). They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Executive Produced and co-written by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen ("Dollhouse," "Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog"), Jeffrey Bell ("Angel," "Alias") and Jeph Loeb ("Smallville," "Lost," "Heroes").
