5 S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Characters

Update on the Whedon Series

Is there a time when Joss Whedon sleeps? Better yet, do we care if he ever does? Character details on his new Avengers TV spin off, titled S.H.I.E.L.D., have emerged online. Zap2it had the official character descriptions of 5 new agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new series is being co-written by Whedon, his brother Jed, and Maurissa Tancharoen.

Agent Grant Ward: A gruff, anti-social manly man in his early 30s who's great at his job but not so great at getting along with his coworkers. Ward has a strong moral foundation and isn't without his charm.

Skye: A quintessential Whedon woman, Skye is described as "bubbly and goofy" but "also warm, edgy and witty." She's in her late 20s and can more than hold her own in any situation.

Agent Althea Rice (a.k.a. The Cavalry): A strong, silent type, still damaged by harrowing combat duty, Rice is in her late 30s and is both an ace pilot and a weapons expert.

Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons: A twosome so connected to each other they're known as "Fitz-Simmons." They're in their late 20s but already highly respected agents. Nerdy yet attractive, they bicker like brother and sister. His specialty is weapons, gadgets and cutting edge technology. Hers is life sciences (both human and alien).


Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

I am very interested in who gets cast in the rolls. I wouldn't mind seeing Felica Day as Skye. I also wonder what other characters they'll have. They've got a ton of heroes to work with that could work in S.H.E.I.L.D. like Spider Woman.

Bring back Ronnie Gardocki! Ronnie got screwed by Vic. Ronnie deserves revenge.

..........Clay.......Quartermain.......?  No?  Odd.

This sounds almost like an American version of Torchwood, which would not necessarily be a bad thing.

I'm thinking Adam Baldwin as Grant.  May not be early 30s, but he is a Whedon-alum and would fit the description.

Mayhem, I think you're right on with Felicia Day as Skye.  My second bet would be Summer Glau.

Of course for Fitz-Simmons you could get Glau and Sean Mauer to reunite as brother and sister, but that's just my browncoat side doing the thinking.

How much you want to bet Skye will be played by Whedon's fave TV actress Eliza Duzku? I could also see roles for his other faves.

I am thinking Duzku will be Calvary.  Sounds good so far.  I hope they add Quartermain as an overseer perhaps.  With this supposedly being HIMYM's last season, maybe they'll be able to wrangle Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill.

I like these character descriptions but none are listed as team leader/overseer. So there may be at least one more character will be added before the show's premeier.

millean 10/2/2012 9:44:20 AM

I thought they already said that Smulders was going to play Hill.  Could be mistaken.  I'm looking forward to this, and will be curious how this pans out.  Hope it is as good as I expect.
