Don't Expect To See Lizzy Caplan In The S.H.I.E.L.D TV Series

A lot of fans figured Caplan, who starred as Claire in the Marvel short Item 47, might reprise that role in their planned S.H.I.E.L.D TV show, but unfortunately if her comments are anything to go by, it doesn't seem likely. Read on for details..

When news of a Joss Whedon penned S.H.I.E.L.D tv series hit recently, fans wondered if the Marvel "one-shot" Item 47 would tie into it in any way since some agents are featured. Well, although it may still of course, one cast member who probably won't be popping up is the star of Item 47, Lizzy Caplan. The Cloverfield actress was asked about it by SHH at a press junket for her new movie 3, 2, 1... Frankie Goes Boom, and responded with the following..

"I can't really, I have my own show so I will not be a regular on the Marvel 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' show. But I'm glad people are so excited about that. I think it's a good idea... Maybe I could do some little thing."

The show in question is the new Showtimes series Masters of Sex. This doesn't mean Caplan definitely won't appear, and she certainly sounds interested, but it doesn't seem very likely judging by her comments. Some other Item 47 cast members - Titus Welliver and Maximiliano Hernández - have also expressed interest, so we'll see how it shakes out.

She won't be a regular, but there's no reason she can't be a recurring character.
RorMachine - 9/20/2012, 6:42 PM
Maybe. Anyway, who saw Caplan in True Blood? Nom.
DioFoRio - 9/20/2012, 6:44 PM
^^^^^^hell yeah Ror
DioFoRio - 9/20/2012, 6:45 PM
She is not only hot. She is funny. You ever see Party Down?
Reasonnnn - 9/20/2012, 6:45 PM
Party Down! :D
Tainted87 - 9/20/2012, 6:47 PM
Good news!
Exactly why I DON'T want to see her again.
Smokey - 9/20/2012, 6:57 PM
I hope Titus will get a good role, he's an awesome actor
jimpinto24 - 9/20/2012, 6:57 PM
I doubt Lizzie Caplan will be a regular on S.H.I.E.L.D. But she could make a cameo.
ShadowOfTheWeb - 9/20/2012, 7:03 PM
Lol @Ror
Party down was the tits.
DioFoRio - 9/20/2012, 7:17 PM
@Tainted...what's that even mean?
Tainted87 - 9/20/2012, 7:19 PM
It means I hated her in True Blood, and I'm happy she's not going to be a regular on this SHIELD show.
DioFoRio - 9/20/2012, 7:24 PM didn't even like her underwater messed up on V titty shakin scene? not even a lil?
Ha1frican - 9/20/2012, 7:52 PM
She was good in Cloverfield as comic relief but I haven't seen her in anything else
superotherside - 9/20/2012, 8:22 PM
She was ok, but not a biggie either way.
stumbleMaster57 - 9/20/2012, 8:30 PM
Yeah I loved her in party down. Cant wait to watch item 47. Sounds pretty cool.
supermarioworldE - 9/20/2012, 8:49 PM
What a shame. I actually thought she was pretty cool in Mean Girls and Hot Tub Time Machine.
lokibane2012 - 9/20/2012, 9:12 PM
Thank god, this woman's dreadful. Hot, but dreadful.
CCR - 9/20/2012, 9:14 PM
I'd hit it. Maybe even twice.
Bigred20 - 9/20/2012, 9:29 PM
Just like Marion Coltiard said she wasn't playing Tahlia Al Ghul
lokibane2012 - 9/20/2012, 9:58 PM

Uhhh... no. wtf?

The two cases aren't even remotely the same.
bbarber2323 - 9/20/2012, 10:02 PM
How can she be in the TV show if she died in the short film??
bhorwith22 - 9/20/2012, 10:12 PM
All I remember seeing is Lizzy Caplan, Showtime, and Masters of Sex.
TheOmegaOne - 9/20/2012, 11:38 PM
Am I the only one that doesn't really care for her?
damntree - 9/20/2012, 11:53 PM
@TheOmegaOne - Nah, I don't care for her either. Ever since I saw Hot Tub Time Machine I always see her as Blossom from that shitty ass show. lol
devil - 9/21/2012, 12:24 AM
make the movie of nick fury dont what to see a tv show of it
mgeoff88 - 9/21/2012, 2:17 AM
Huh, I didn't see the short yet, but even if she's busy with another show, why not have her guest star in an episode or two?

@bbarber2323 OK... maybe it didn't take place in the show's universe? I don't know, that is a tough one.
AC1 - 9/21/2012, 2:51 AM
@bbarber2323 are you talking about the Marvel One Shot Item 47 short film or something else? Because [SPOILER] she survives and becomes a member of SHIELD...
kemuael - 9/21/2012, 3:05 AM
Lizzy Caplan wont be doing anymore Marvel stuff, this is very good news dont let the repulsor hit you on the way out :-D
Gromblidor - 9/21/2012, 3:33 AM
She seemed pretty arrogant and just disrespectful on the G4 Comicon interview, kinda like one of those girls in high school that you just wanted to punch in the face every time they opened their mouth.
thewonderer - 9/21/2012, 7:13 AM
Her head blows up in cloverfield. At like 10 years old I was traumatized
Frogman - 9/21/2012, 7:46 AM
how does "not be a regular" translate into "won't be appearing at all, ever"?
PsyGuy - 9/21/2012, 8:10 AM
Everyone watch 'Bachelorette'. It's HILARIOUS.
bbarber2323 - 9/21/2012, 9:17 AM
@ACira...someone here said she died in Item 47 luke 3 weeks ago. I think thats when I read that in one of these forums. Anyway, glad to hear that was wrong. Thx for the fill in bro!!
