Marvel Entertainment have just announced that former Heroes star Adrian Pasdar will be joining the cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for an upcoming episode of the TV series. Pasdar will play the role of Glenn Talbot, a long time adversary of the Hulk. But he’ll be going up against Agent Coulson and his team in the upcoming episode set to air this April.

Speaking with Marvel Pasdar reveals how the role came to be:

“In the same way that Iron Man [in “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”] came up. I got a call from my good friend, [“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Executive Producer] Jeph Loeb. “Would you come and do this role?” and I read the character description and I thought, “Oh man. Here it is again. The sanctimonious [jerk]. That’s what they’re coming to me for.” [laughs] His way’s the only way! I said, “Jeph, are you trying to tell me something?” He said, “No, not at all! Nobody can play this quite like you, but no.” [laughs] So he came to me and I said yes.”

Glenn Talbot was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and first appeared in Tales to Astonish #61. He has hunted the Hulk ever since. He was previously played by Josh Lucas in Ang Lee’s 2003 Hulk.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8 P.M. on ABC.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
