Cobie Smulders Talks AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. And Whether She Wants A Full-Time Role
The How I Met Your Mother star shares her thoughts on whether that series ending means she could become a permanent fixture on ABC and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and what it was like to work with Joss Whedon and his team. Check it out!
"I'm up for it, it's just a matter of the direction that they decide to go with the show," Cobie Smulders told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview when asked whether or not she will feature as 'Maria Hill' in more than just the pilot of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. "I don't know how much they'll be at the Command Center and how much they need me around. If it works out organically with the story line, then I'd be happy to come in but I truly don't know." However, the actress - who will also appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and presumably The Avengers 2 - doesn't seem all that interesting in returning full-time to the small screen once her How I Met Your Mother commitments end. "It's hard to say. I'm planning a big move to New York, so that's a pretty huge factor in doing another series in Los Angeles," she says. "This is the joy and the terror of coming off of a show after nine years: What should I do, what should I not do?! If the right project comes along, of course I'd return to TV. But I'd like to focus in film and on theater right now." As for working with Joss Whedon and his team, Smulders added: "I was so excited to work with Joss again and to meet his brother, Jed and his wife Maurissa and get to hang out with them again," she says of filming the SHIELD pilot. "They're all geniuses. Joss sent me my scenes and it was so great to see this character interacting in a different way and to basically get to tell the world that Coulson is 'alive' and back with a TV show where you can watch him every week. I was excited about that more than anything."
