Howdy people of the internet, today I’m gonna talk about a quick bit of TV information coming from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. concerning a new cast member. following information comes from the ever-reliable superherohype:
“Marvel Entertainment have just announced that former “Heroes” star Adrian Pasdar will be joining the cast of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for an upcoming episode of the TV series. Pasdar will play the role of Glenn Talbot in the series, a character that has long been a pain in the Hulk’s side in the comics, but he’ll be trading his green enemy for Agent Coulson and his team in the upcoming episode. Pasdar will debut as Talbot in an episode set to air this April. Check back here for more details on the episode as we learn them.
Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Glenn Talbot first appeared in Tales to Astonish #61 and went on to hunt down the Hulk in over 140 other issues of the popular series. He was previously played by Josh Lucas in the 2003 film Hulk.”
Alrighty then, good stuff, I like this casting news. Pasdar is a good actor and I loved him in Heroes too so having him join the show makes me smile. From the picture above I can see that this is a very different look for him, such a lack of hair and that moustache is looking so weird on him, that being said he does seem to give off a badass and intense vibe. He doesn’t look like someone you should mess with. I am also happy that the show is once again introducing more comic book related characters as this is what the show needs. Since he is connected the Hulk comics will there be any references to The Incredible Hulk or maybe he’ll give mention about Bruce Banner’s whereabouts or something like that? Who knows, but it is fun to speculate as a fan. 🙂
