Two more roles have been cast in the forthcoming S.H.I.E.L.D TV series.
THR is reporting that Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker will join the already cast Clark Gregg (above) and Ming-Na.
Henstridge will play “science whiz” Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker is set as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz. The two “spend all their time together—mostly bickering—and are masters at a remarkably young age of their respective fields”.
Joss Whedon is writing the pilot episode alongside his brother Jed Whedon and Jed’s wife Maurissa Tancharoen, and he’ll also be directing as well. Should the pilot be picked up to series, the show will likely premiere next Autumn on ABC in the US.
