Bill Paxton To Play 'Agent John Garret' in AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D

Action movie legend Bill Paxton (Aliens, True Lies) has joined the cast of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He's reported to be appearing in four episodes during Feburary/March. Hit the jump to find out more!

The actor most known for his roles in James Cameron movies will be playing the character known as John Garret (Who was introduced by Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiwicz's "Elektra: Assassin" miniseries in the '80s.).

The character is described by show runner Jed Whedon as "a rough-and-tumble former cohort of Agent Coulson, with a little bit of attitude and cigar-smoking swagger. When Garrett got his promotion to Level 7, he refused to sit behind a desk and doesn't like the formalities of S.H.I.E.L.D.. He's going to help Coulson solve some mysteries and is not afraid to rig an explosive or two."

So what do you think of this news? Leave a comment bellow.

Wait is he a series regular?
Kurne - 1/13/2014, 3:03 PM
Oh four episodes, didn't read that :P
Ramiel - 1/13/2014, 3:09 PM
So, the other Paxton article got deleted? How come?
Lozzy - 1/13/2014, 3:10 PM
no idea and im worried mine will too.
JoeMomma29 - 1/13/2014, 3:10 PM
Yeah caught that four episodes as well.....That stinks to high heaven, total buzz kill because I want some actual Agents on the show full time.

I can dig it. Maybe they'll cast Michael Beihn in something next. Word Association. Paxton made me think of Biehn since they both worked with Cameron a lot in the 80's. Biehn would be a good fit in the MCU.

This website needs to clean up its act stop playing favorites. I guess that's what happens when monies involved corruption is sure to follow
marantaz - 1/13/2014, 3:15 PM
Probably because of the Desperate and Crying trolls that invade Marvel related articles and splatter grafitti all over the comments threads. They really make this site hard to want to visit.

We're on an express elevator to hell; going down!
beane2099 - 1/13/2014, 3:15 PM
@grif I admire your consistency, sir. I've never seen you waffle on this or your stance on Abrams.
Lhornbk - 1/13/2014, 3:16 PM
It's 4 episodes, probably because that's all they could afford him for. I bet it would take a ton of money to get him into a TV series full time. But, maybe if he's popular enough, they bring him back for part of the season next year.
ChrispyG - 1/13/2014, 3:17 PM
Big fan of Paxton, he'll be a nice addition to the show, in any capacity.
marantaz - 1/13/2014, 3:17 PM
DeadAirDennis, you implying this site is biased? Dude, you fear not the wrath of Galactus? Indeed, impressed I am.
marantaz - 1/13/2014, 3:19 PM
Lhornbk, he did tv before, cable series I think, and this is Disney... they got more of our money than the Chinese.
Ranger14 - 1/13/2014, 3:21 PM
So they cast an actual character from the comics for four shows and people still complain. lol Some of the people here are quite amusing.
BaneSmash - 1/13/2014, 3:29 PM
But first I'd like to... butter your muffin.
Kyos - 1/13/2014, 3:31 PM
So, what happened to the previous article on this? (O_o)'
santoanderson - 1/13/2014, 3:34 PM
When it comes to this TV show, Marvel bet on the wrong Whedon.
Joementum - 1/13/2014, 3:36 PM
Show needed interesting character. Hope the writing talent can live up to Paxton's acting talent
InfiniteMonkey - 1/13/2014, 3:38 PM
How much money does one pay to get the other article to be deleted while another gets front and centre?

Bill Paxton is cool.
Humby - 1/13/2014, 3:38 PM
This is great news. He should add a good dynamic for a while. And hopefully his presence will improve the acting of some of the other characters. And I hope he comes back once in a while as this show grows.

The best news however is that they are actually attempting a 4 episode arc, especially considering they've barely been able to run a 2 episode arc. This show will not last more than 2 seasons if it sticks to the stand alone episodic formula. Glad to hear they are mixing it up.
Minty - 1/13/2014, 3:38 PM
Brilliant actor, and a real agent - whaddya know. They're improving!
Luko - 1/13/2014, 3:50 PM
and they kill him again as usual
GodzillaKart - 1/13/2014, 4:00 PM
Oh Trudy, get over your racist self.
manofmidgard - 1/13/2014, 4:01 PM

Minty - 1/13/2014, 5:03 PM

MercwithMouth - 1/13/2014, 5:04 PM
This should be awesome! But yeah, over 200 comments on the last article, and it gets deleted. I was having so much fun on that thread.

Paxton is the man, cannot wait for Chet!
Inhuman - 1/13/2014, 5:34 PM
Bill Paxton is the man. Love this casting
avengingson - 1/13/2014, 5:47 PM
Awesome news! Hopefully he becomes a regular.... This is just what this show needs. A good actor, and holy crap, the character has actually appeared in the comics!
