UPDATE: Travis Love To Play 'Taskmaster' In Joss Whedon's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Pilot?
The Walking Dead actor will reportedly star in the pilot episode of Joss Whedon and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Tony Masters. Those of you who are comic book fans may realise that that's the real name of none other than the villainous 'Taskmaster'! Read on for details.
He played the mostly silent and extremely deadly henchman of 'The Governor' in season three of The Walking Dead, but S.H.I.E.L.D. TV (via @Marvel_Freshman) now reports that Travis Love has signed up for a role - or has presumably already shot it - in Joss Whedon's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot as 'Tony Masters'. Why should you care? Well, Masters was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whose photographic memory meant that he could watch and duplicate the movements of someone with little to no effort. It was this that led him to become the mercenary known as TASKMASTER; a villain who has given the likes of Captain America, Daredevil and Spider-Man a run for their money when it comes to hand to hand combat! His exact role in the ABC series remains to be seen...
UPDATE: We've been duped! It turns out that this particular piece of news originated from IMDb and ABC has since confirmed that Love is NOT playing Tony Masters, a.k.a. Taskmaster.
