From Boardwalk to Marvel’s Agent Carter

September 24th, 2014 by Jay Comments

Marvel’s Agent Carter has found its male lead, as Shea Whigham will play “tough but fair-minded” SSR Chief Roger Dooley, according to Den of Geek.

Whigham should be recognisable to lots of folk out there, seeing as he held the long-term role of Eli in Boardwalk Empire, as well as popping up reoccurringly in True Detective as Joel Theriot, and appearing on the big screen in Non-Stop, The Wolf Of Wall Street and Fast & Furious 6 last year.

Considering how Whigham has shone in all of his previous roles, we’re looking forward to seeing him as Agent Carter’s boss when the series debuts on ABC  in January 2015 during the season 2 mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
