Blair Underwood Joins Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

When Marvel’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. returns, it will have a very special guest on screen.

Golden Globe nominee Blair Underwood has joined the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and will play a somewhat scandalous role among the agents! He’ll be Dr. Andrew Garner, the ex-husband of Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen), “a neurologist and forensic psychologist who has specialized in working with gifted individuals on the Index before.”. His appearance is sure to shake things up and cause some uncomfortable hilarity among the team members.

Here’s what Marvel TV frontman Jeph Loeb said about the casting:
“With Blair, we knew we’d found someone to perfectly complement May’s stoic personality. Fans have wondered about her ex-husband since she first referenced him, and Blair has the presence and charm to stand up to our Agent Melinda May.”

The show will return in March 2015.
