Titus Welliver Talks ITEM 47; And If He Will Be A Part Of The S.H.I.E.L.D TV Series

The Lost actor, and self professed comic geek, describes his experiences working for Marvel on short film Item 47. He also responds to the question on everyone's lips - will he pop up in Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D series?..

In an interview with SFX, actor Titus Welliver - who plays Agent Blake in Item 47 - discusses his work on that short film. Welliver, who has been a big comic fan for many years, says that he didn't spend that much time shooting, but that it was a "a tremendous amount of work" because the black lacquered floor in the room they were filming in made it very difficult to block reflections. But he also says he had great fun, which leads to the question - will he return as Agent Blake in the recently announced S.H.I.E.L.D tv series? Unfortunately he doesn't know much - or if he does he's keeping schtum about it - but he definitely sounds like he's interested..

“I don’t know, I literally, you know, that press release was just done last week, and that was the first that I’ve heard of it. I would certainly be more than happy to participate in that, although I have no information, no insider information. But I would love to do it because I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself on Item 47 and I think if you’re gonna be part of a fictional universe, this is the one to be a part of.”

He would make a great Marvel villain..just dont know which one.
He's that good of an actor that he could fit the role of many characters.

I hope he's on the show a lot! Such a cool actor should be the anchor between the tv show and movies.

He is great, but his role in Lost was ridiculous... Smokie was just a regular guy, come on...

Shit actor, I hope they don't saddle the SHIELD tv sereis with his talentless ass. That show already has an uphill battle ahead of itself to begin with.

anyone know where I can go to see Item 47 online?
lukasbolander - 9/15/2012, 12:36 PM
Pretty good in Deadwood

Bring him back Marvel, he'd be another awesome addition to the MCU, even if its just for the show and hopefully future films.
