via The Hollywood Reporter — Adrianne Palicki is the latest addition to the ever-increasing roster of stars coming on board Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for season two.
Palicki will play Agent Bobbi Morse, otherwise known as Mockingbird. Her first appearance will be in the fifth episode, something hinted at by Patton Oswalt’s Agent(s) Koenig in a video seen at San Diego Comic-Con. The question now is whether Agent Morse will ultimately prove to be an ally or an enemy for Director Coulson and his rag-tag team.
Palicki is no stranger to the genre, playing Jaye in G.I.Joe: Retaliation along with appearances on Robot Chicken, From Dusk Till Dawn, and the now-infamous Wonder Woman pilot produced by David E. Kelley (which we analyzed here and here). Her inclusion in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. brings her into a group of newcomers (to the show) that includes Lucy Lawless, Kyle McLachlan, Reed Diamond, Nick Blood, Henry Simmons, and Simon Kassianides.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns September 23. And our podcast, Level Eleventy-Seven, returns right along with it. Every week, we’ll discuss the latest episode (including Agent Carter during the mid-season).
