Friday Night Lights alum Adrianne Palicki joins the cast of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD on ABC. Palicki who starred in the recent G.I. Joe Retaliation movie was first thought to enter the superhero world when she was cast as Wonder Woman in David E. Kelly’s pilot, but the show was never picked up to series.
According to THR, Palicki is set to play superspy Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird, a S.H.I.E.L.D. field agent that appears in the fifth episode, although “perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team.”
SHIELD co-star Patton Oswalt teased the news last month at Comic-Con.
Season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD premieres on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
