Shea Whigham Joins MARVEL’s AGENT CARTER

Shea Whigham

Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire) has landed the male lead opposite Hayley Atwell in ABC’s new series, Marvel’s Agent Carter.

Whigham will play the tough but fair-minded SSR Chief Roger Dooley, the man who will oversee agents Carter (Atwell), Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj).

Agent Carter takes place in 1946 where, while working for the covert Strategic Scientific Reserve, Peggy Carter must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark. The series will bridge the gap between the fall and spring runs of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
