Marvel has dropped a rather large casting spoiler for episode 6 ‘A Fractured House’.
White Collar star Tim Dekay has been cast as Senator Christian Ward.
We’ve got your first look at DeKay as Christian Ward right here on Marvel.com ahead of his first appearance in the season’s sixth episode, but given the stories Grant Ward has told about his brother you’ll have to tune in to find out what he’s really like. –Source: Marvel
Could Christian be the senator General Talbot’s mentioned with “deep pockets” that has it out for Coulson and S.H.E.I.L.D.? We’ll all find out in a couple weeks!
Note: In "The Well" we see a flashback to Ward as a boy. Ward’s older brother and a young boy we assume is Ward’s younger brother. In the episode the older brother who was forcing Ward to torture the younger boy is credited as Maynard Ward but we assume the character has been taken on the name Christian Ward for this episode.
