S.H.I.E.L.D. Cast News… J August Richards

S.H.I.E.L.D. News is scarce while we try and wait patiently for news that ABC has picked S.H.I.E.L.D. up as a series, the unfortunate truth is we may still have more than a month to wait if ABC decides to hold off announcing till the Up Fronts mid May.

New information does filter through from time to time however and we enjoy sharing what we can.

While we have no specifics to share we are excited to see that J August Richards (Angel) will have a role in the show (or at least the pilot).

We will post further details when they become available.

Edit: Confirming this is NOT an April fools prank :)

  5. I always enjoy Whedon-verse alumni. I still do think this will have to have at least some cameos from the super-duper-hero side of things…

  6. Agent E says:

    Anything you hear about the role he’ll play is just people guessing. Everyone who actually knows anything is being super tight-lipped

  7. LittleMetzler says:

    He is way to small to play Luke Cage.

  8. LittleMetzler says:

    I wasn’t talking about his height. I am talking about his build and it won’t help if he bulks up a little. He isn’t broad enough, he will never come off as huge.
