SECRET INVASION Disney+ Series Casts HAPPY GILMORE Star Christopher McDonald In A Major Role

Shooter's gotta shoot! It's being reported that Marvel Studios' upcoming Secret Invasion series has added Happy Gilmore star Christopher McDonald in a key role that could have a big future in the MCU!

Deadline is reporting that Christopher McDonald (Happy GilmoreBallersThe Good Wife) has joined the cast of Marvel Studios' Secret Invasion in a role that sounds like it could have a big future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

According to the report, he's playing a newly created character for the series, and it's believed he could ultimately cross over into the films and the other upcoming Disney+ shows. 

While plot details are still being kept under wraps, the series is expected to loosely adapt the popular crossover comic arc of the same name that reveals how the shape-shifting Skrulls managed to infiltrate the planet and have been manipulating events to their liking for decades. 

McDonald joins an ensemble cast headlined by Academy Award-nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Spider-Man: Far From Home; Avengers: Endgame) as Nick Fury and Primetime Emmy-winner Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline; Captain Marvel) as Talos.

4x Primetime Emmy-nominee Emilia Clarke (Game of ThronesSolo: A Star Wars StoryTerminator: Genisys), Academy Award-winner Olivia Colman (The Father; The FavouriteTyrannosaur), Kingsley Ben-Adir (The OAPeaky BlindersKing Arthur: Legend of the Sword), and Killian Scott (DamnationDublin MurdersLove/Hate) were previously cast in lead roles. 

Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. RobotCopperBorgia) is serving as head writer on the project with Thomas Bezucha (Let Him Go; Monte Carlo) and Ali Selim (Sweet Land; The Looming Tower) set to co-direct. 

With casting now fully underway, production on the six-episode miniseries is expected to begin sometime this fall in the United Kingdom and Europe, presumably with a mid-to-late 2022 debut in consideration.
