THAT '70s SHOW Star Kurtwood Smith Signs Up For Major Recurring Role On AGENT CARTER

Sounds like someone on Marvel's Agent Carter, which stars Hayley Atwell in the lead, is getting a foot up their ass fairly soon as former That '70s Show star Kurtwood Smith has just been confirmed for a major recurring role on the upcoming second season. Come check it out!

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Kurtwood Smith (That '70s Show) has signed on for a major recurring role on the second season of Marvel's Agent Carter. He'll portray Vernon Masters. It's uncertain whether he'll be on Peggy side of the war or against, but the character is being described as a veteran of the War Department with a keen understanding of how to work the system, which would seem to suggest he may eventually butt heads with our heroine.

Additionally, this move reunites the '70s Show alum with showrunners Tara Butters & Michele Fazekas, who he previously worked with on the short-lived ABC series Resurrection. Outside of his role as Red Forman, Smith has had a long career with memorable roles in several hit films including, but not limited to, RoboCop, Dead Poets Society, Rambo III, and Cedar Rapids. His television work includes 24, Star Trek, The X-Files, House M.D. & Rick and Morty. Smith also has a history with DC Entertainment, having worked with them before while voicing the Galactic Court Judge on Justice League, voicing Shyir Rev on Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and voicing Lt. James Gordon on Beware The Batman.

Also, in case you were wondering about Lyndsy Fonseca's status, the talented actress revealed, in a tweet last week, that she hasn't heard anything yet from Marvel Television regarding appearing in the upcoming second season, which is surely a disappointment for all.
