With the last break of the season in progress fans are eagerly awaiting news of the final episodes which are expected to run weekly without further interruption

One piece of news we have to share today is that Heroes star Adrian Pasdar will appear in an April episode as Glenn Talbot, “The man who spent years hunting the Incredible Hulk in the comics” though in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. he will be causing trouble for Agent Coulson’s team.

Marvel is keeping quiet about any further details but they did publish an interview with him this week at marvel.com

Speaking about the costume for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Pasdar said:

It’s hard to look serious in that hat, man. You look like a New Jersey State Trooper if you wear it wrong. Nothing wrong with New Jersey State Troopers, but the outfits are a little funny. Just wearing that Air Force hat, you really gotta be able to pull that off. That was the hardest part. But the moustache, we spent a long time on that, a couple of days. That was probably a thorn in the side to make-up and hair people. I had a week to prepare and as macho as I like to think I am, there’s just no way I can grow that mustache in a week so we had to cut up a $400 dollar mustache and try it on knowing that it might fail and there’s not always room to do that in the make-up department.

So anyway, we came through and it was fun to be on the set and work with these folks on the show. The way that they filmed [my scene] was very interesting. It was a live feed. [Coulson’s team are] in the control room and I come over a monitor. So I was filming it in another room off of a camera, [and] it was a live feed to them in that room, so it was really happening. It was in-camera, it wasn’t going to be superimposed, so my face would come on eight feet tall and six feet wide. I don’t know how much people can handle of that. I’m glad I didn’t have to look at it. But it was fun to be able to talk into the camera, and they had a microphone set up and a speaker so I could hear their responses and we played the scene out in real time. It’s kind of like a throwback to old television, where they would go from room to room with the camera. They’d go from Camera A to Camera B and then come back on to Camera A and then move over to Set 3 and it’d all be happening in real time.
