J. August Richards Talks AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. And His Love Of Comic Books
While he refuses to give anything away about the secretive ABC pilot, the Angel and Arrow star comments on reuniting with Joss Whedon for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and reveals that he's actually a major comic book fan. Check it out!
Talking to IGN TV about his upcoming guest appearance in Arrow as 'Mr. Blank', J. August Richards was quizzed about his secretive role in the Joss Whedon helmed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Unfortunately, he wasn't willing to give anything away as to who he might be playing! "Gosh, I’m just so not at liberty to talk about that, unfortunately! I’m so sorry!" However, the actor - who worked with the writer and director on Angel - did say this about reuniting with him for the ABC pilot. "Well, I mean, I’ve worked with Joss… and it’s always great working with him, as well. But I don’t know… as far as anything else, I’m not at liberty to discuss anything else. [Laughs]" Finally, talk turned to whether or not Richards is actually a fan of the genre. He is, which should be good news for fans who believe he will be playing a well-known Marvel character! "I own 1000 comic books. I was a comic book guy since middle school. I love comic books. I feel like all I’m doing right now as a career is, I still sort of feel like I’m playing Star Wars with my friends at 9 years old. I feel like somehow I made a living out of playing Star Wars."
