According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Comics’ Mockingbird will be making a guest appearance in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this coming season and Adrianne Palicki will be playing the part. They’re saying she should be appearing in the fifth episode but are eluding to her NOT being an ally to Coulson and the team? Sounds like Marvel may be practicing some managed leaks here.
Palicki joins a rapidly growing roster of guest stars heading to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s second run.
She joins Kyle MacLachlan as Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) father; Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabelle Hartly; Reed Diamond as Hydra villain Daniel Whitehall (aka Kraken); Nick Blood as a mercenary Coulson reaches out to for help; Henry Simmons as agent Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie; and Simon Kassianides as Bakshi.
For Palicki, the casting comes after she reteamed with FNL creator Jason Katims on NBC’s About a Boy, playing a love interest for David Walton’s Will. She will return to reprise the role in season two of the NBC comedy. Her credits also include G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Legion and Robot Chicken. She’s repped by WME and Anonymous Content.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is one of the shows we’re excited about this coming season, and the announcement of Mockingbird makes me even more excited! What do you think of this orchestrated leak? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
