Portraying one of the World Security Council members, television & film actor Powers Boothe is best known for his Sin City role as Senator Roarke. He also voiced characters in Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
Kenneth Tigar's role in the film is listed as a simple "German Old Man." However, the actor played Margan and Dammar in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager , receiving no screen credit for neither appearances. He has also appeared in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
Although Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo revealed his inclusion in the film at a recent press conference, also attending the premiere, American actor, musician, and singer Harry Dean Stanton will portray a Security Guard. He has starred in iconic films Alien (1979), The Green Mile, and Repo Man.
Albanian-American actor Enver Gjokaj was spotted on The Avengers while filming was underway in Cleveland, however, no one was sure he'd appear in the film. Now with confirmation, Gjokaj will be playing a Young Officer. He's best known for playing supporting character Victor in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse series.
Television actress Romy Rosemont has appeared in multiple popular TV series, however, what's more pivotal is the character she's playing in The Avengers and the fact it's from the comics.

Best known for playing Jim Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1990 to 1995, actor James Eckhouse will be portraying Senator Boynton, who's also a character from the comics. Senator Boyton was a politician aware of the plan to use Firepower against the rogue Iron Man during the Armor Wars.
