ANGEL's J. August Richards Lands Secret Role In ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot
Filming on Marvel and ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot finished filming back in February, but it has now been confirmed that Joss Whedon will be reuniting with J. August Richards (Angel) in a "super top-secret role".
Even though writer-director Joss Whedon finished filming Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot for ABC back in February, we now have confirmation of another addition to the cast, and this one has worked with The Avengers helmer in the past. According to TV Line, Whedon has cast J. August Richards (who was in the Buffy The Vampire Slayer spin-off Angel, which was also created by Whedon) in what's called a "super top-secret role." The S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot also stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge Iain De Caestecker and Brett Dalton. It hasn't been confirmed whether or not the pilot will go to series, but it is expected to air on ABC sometime this fall. Who do you think Richards is playing?
