It looks as if the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D is turning out to be a bit of a fan-fest, as news emerges that Adrianne Palicki will be joining the series as character, Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird. For those of you who know nothing about Mockingbird, she is a skilled combatant with a number of weapons, in unarmed combat and depending on which state they want to place her in when we’re introduced to her in the show, she may also have greatly improved strength and agility. Comic fans will know why. Most important, she’s got a mind to match her ruthlessness, with a PhD in Biology.
It’s unclear at this point whether or not she will be linked with Renner’s Hawkeye, who she has been intensely romantically linked to in the comics, after all, Agents of S. »

The cast of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to grow as the McU-set show moves closer to its second season.
A familiar name to comic book fans, who had previously been hinted in a video at San Diego Comic-Con, Bobbi Morse is a spy with exceptional fighting skills, who has teamed up with S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers many times in comics history. She’s been romantically involved with Hawkeye in print, too.

In addition to Palicki, other notable additions to the upcoming season of Shield include Lucy Lawless, Kyle MacLachlan, Reed Diamond and Nick Blood. Lawless will play Shield veteran Isabell Hartley, »
During Comic-Con 2014 last month, ABC presented a special video teasing Season 2 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where Patton Oswalt's Agent Koenig revealed that Barbara "Bobbi" Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, will be popping up this season. Today, Marvel confirmed that Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Mockingbird, although her affiliation to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team were not revealed.

Adrianne Palicki will appear as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird, in the second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. -- but whether she'll play friend or foe to Coulson and his team, we can't say. Known for her work in Friday Night Lights and G.I.

Palicki joins »
THR is reporting that Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has joined the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as fan-favorite character, Avenger, and future wife of Hawkeye, Mockingbird.
Mockingbird is the alter-ego of super spy Bobbi Morse, who will first appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming season, debuting “perhaps not as an ally to Coulson and his team.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. marks Palicki’s third superhero television series. She infamously played Wonder Woman in the failed NBC pilot from David E. Kelley in 2011, and played the character Nadia in The WB’s Aquaman pilot in 2006.
Palicki is just the latest addition to the series, which has been picking up quite a few guest stars over the past few weeks including Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica alum Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabel Hartly, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall a. »

After the incredibly disappointing first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the series is returning with a new gameplan: guest stars, guest stars, and guest stars. Kyle MacLachlan is playing Skye's father; Lucy Lawless is playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley; and Reed Diamond is playing Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall (a.k.a Kraken). THR is now reporting that Adrianne Palicki will be making an appearance this season as Bobbi Morse, a.k.a. Mockingbird. According to THR, Morse "will appear in the fifth episode of the Marvel procedural with the potential to return; the episode will find her popping in perhaps not as an ally to Coulson (Clark Gregg) and his team." While Palicki is a likable presence, her casting and the casting of other guest stars doesn't address the show's larger problem like the bad writing, dull main characters, and crummy special effects. »

During San Diego Comic-Con last month, Marvel revealed that fan-favorite character Bobbi Morse a.k.a. Mockingbird would be showing up in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now we know not only when she’s expected to make her small screen debut, but also who will bring her to life.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has been tapped to guest star as Mockingbird in the fifth episode of the upcoming season. Though she’s an Avenger in the comics (and the future wife of Hawkeye), she will debut on the series “not as an ally to Coulson and his team,” with the possibility of more appearances in the future.
This marks Palicki’s third attempt at joining a superhero TV show, as she infamously played Wonder Woman in a failed NBC pilot in 2011 and, before that, portrayed the character Nadia in a »

Former "Friday Night Lights" star Adrianne Palicki has scored the guest starring role of super spy Bobbi Morse (aka. Mockingbird) in the upcoming second season of Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for ABC.
Palicki will appear in the fifth episode of the new season with the potential to return, and at first may not be an ally of Agent Coulson and his team.

Palicki has experience with comics on TV, although twice now she's been thwarted. She played Wonder Woman in a TV pilot for a series about the DC Comics heroine, and she played the love interest in a pilot for »

Although playing Wonder Woman didn't work out for "Friday Night Lights" vet Adrianne Palicki, she'll get her chance to play a different comic book heroine in the upcoming second season of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Palicki has signed on for a guest appearance on the ABC series as top spy Bobbi Morse, also known as Mockingbird, according to The Hollywood Reporter. So far, Palicki is only set to appear in episode 5, but she may be retuning in future installments. Marvel Comics fans know that Mockingbird and Hawkeye were married, so could a cameo from Jeremy Renner (who played Hawkeye in "The Avengers") be in the cards? "S.H.I.E.L.D." co-star Patton Oswalt teased the addition of Morse at the San Diego Comic-Con last month. Watch below: Palicki has some previous experience with superheroes; she played Wonder Woman in a 2011 pilot produced by David E. Kelley, »

Parting ways is hard to do, but luckily for The Good Wife, killing off Will Gardner did not mean bidding adieu to his portrayer.
In the following exclusive clip from the CBS drama’s Season 5 DVD release (in stores Tuesday), co-creator Michelle King reveals that the actor — who directed an episode of the show after his departure (and is set to helm another installment in Season 6) — will remain a part of their world.

The actress, whose recent credits include arcs on Fox’s The Following and NBC’s About a Boy, will play Casey, the professional model sister of Emily (series regular Lindsay Sloane). When it comes to men, Casey is all about the now and not looking for a complicated relationship.
In the absence of Will Gardner, it seems The Good Wife is bringing back a number of fan favorite characters. First, we found out that Carrie Preston’s Elsbeth Tascioni would make her triumphant return, and now we’ve got more good news for Tascioni fans: Josh Perotti is coming back with her.
EW has confirmed that Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as Perotti, the attorney who once caught Ms. Tascioni’s eye (or rather, she caught his). Although it’s unclear how long either of them will be sticking around, their returns will coincide, so here’s to »

Get your lanyards ready and prepare yourself to resist touching Lola, because Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns next month. The Us premiere date for season two of Marvel’s opinion-splitting television project has also been confirmed as September 23. Whether the show will remain at Channel 4 in the UK remains to be seen.
In casting news, experienced actor Kyle MacLachan (Twin Peaks' Agent Cooper and How I Met Your Mother’s The Captain) has joined the show in a key role. A role we’re surprised Marvel wanted to reveal in advance, to be honest. Don’t read beyond this meme if you want to go in completely cold.
Still here? Okay. We can confirm, right from the horse’s mouth, »
He’s appeared in many of the USA’s biggest shows over the past 25 years, now Kyle MacLachlan has further cemented his iconic credentials by joining the Marvel universe for Agents Of Shield. The square-jawed, quirky actor is playing the father of Skye (Chloe Bennet) and will reportedly have an air of mystery about him. It wouldn’t surprise me if he possessed some superheroic tendencies – they’d be mad not to at least have him levitating a cup with his mind or something! Intriguingly, some sites list him as “The Doctor”. Surely this isn’t a fanboy-mind-melting crossover in the works!?
MacLachlan is still perhaps best known as Special Agent Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks and for his work with that project’s co-creator David Lynch in Dune (his feature debut) and Blue Velvet. Since then he’s been in the regular casts for Sex And The City, Desperate Housewives, »
