Joss Whedon's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' completes casting for leads




Joss Whedon's upcoming TV pilot S.H.I.E.L.D., based on the Marvel Comics supersecret intelligence agency, has finally round out the cast. There's a few people we don't recognize at all, but hey, Clark Gregg from The Avengers will be back as Agent Phil Coulson! So we're setting this before the movie, then.

That means all six regular characters have been cast, according to the Hollywood Reporter: Nashville's Chloe Bennet will play Skye; ER's Ming-Na will be Agent Melinda May; Killing Lincoln's Brett Dalton will be Agent Grant Ward; Elizabeth Henstridge is Agent Gemma Simmons and Ian De Caestecker will play Agent Leo Fitz.

If any of those names mean anything to you, you're probably kind of psyched about it. If you've never heard of the Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate, well, you probably didn't start reading this item anyway, so good luck to you.
