In 2004, four ambitious Hispanic high schoolers in Phoenix—three of them undocumented immigrants, all of them underdogs with limited resources and prospects—defeated MIT's brightest (and better-bankrolled) in an underwater-robotics competition. Already the subject of a documentary last year, Soul Surfer director Sean McNamara's family-friendly frivolity shoehorns the incredible true story into a formulaic Stand and Deliver knockoff with no rough edges and the production values of an after-school special. George Lopez certainly doesn't have the acting chops of an Edward James Olmos, but his sincerity resonates as the substitute teacher and former engineer who coaches the kids to victory, while Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis phone in their re »
Every time a new cast member signs up to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, fans speculate on whether they'll turn out to be a character we know from the Marvel Comics universe or not. You can't really blame them; after all Mike Peterson became Deathlok, "the Doctor" became Mister Hyde, and Skye turned out to be his daughter, Quake -- and that may just be the tip of the iceberg. We recently found out that fan-favourite actor Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, Dexter) is the latest addition to the cast, playing someone named Robert Gonzalez. Will he turn out to be an established Marvel character? Olmos didn't comment on that during his interview with Cbr but he definitely suggested there's a lot more to this mysterious fellow than we're currently aware. Apparently his casting came "out of the blue", but already being a big Marvel »
Spoiler TV have discovered that when Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its midseason première on March 3rd, the title of its first ep. (season 2, episode 11) back will be "Aftershocks". This obviously has to do with the team dealing with the fallout of last year's eventful midseason finale, but it's also a reference to the new powers displayed by Skye Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) after she emerged from her "Inhuman" cocoon as Quake. We also found out that Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos had joined the cast of season 2 in a mysterious role, and here is a recent set snap of the actor taken by King-Na Wen.

The “Marvel Agent Carter” Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour panel on Wednesday afternoon raised quite a few questions, but executive producer Jeph Loeb refused to spill any secrets or spoilers about ABC’s newest comic book adaptation.
Loeb specifically wouldn’t comment on potential crossovers between ABC’s other Marvel show, “Agents of Shield” and “Carter.” Nor would he give anything away on a possible crossover with the upcoming “Avengers” film.
All Loeb would say on the former is, “It’s all connected.”

The battle between DC and Marvel for mainstream superhero entertainment supremacy isn’t solely relegated to the confines of blockbusting major motion pictures. It’s playing out on television, too.
While ABC adds some Edward James Olmos to its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (that’s a Marvel title) and Disney preps a $200 million New York City-based production for four upcoming Netflix series starring uncanny individuals from the junior varsity team of the Marvel universe, Fox’s Gotham (a DC title) is raking in the ratings and the CW is adding another DC property to its ranks. The broadcast network that’s aleady home to two incredibly popular television iterations of DC comics - including the very well-liked Arrow and the even more very well-liked The Flash - will soon stream an animated version of Vixen on its online video incubator, CW Seed.

Jack Porter: Good father, great eye candy, terrible policeman.
The Hamptons’ second pluckiest rookie — Ben is obviously No. 1 — thought he was saving the day on Sunday’s Revenge, anonymously submitting the flash drive containing Malcolm Black’s criminal exploits to the police, but it turns out he only made things worse. Much worse.
Malcolm was released due to “lack of evidence,” which further fueled his rage — rage that he then directed towards Emily, whom he now knows to be Amanda Clarke. Two tranquilizer shots brought Em and Victoria to their knees, while a menacing Malcolm stood over them. (“Night night” has never sounded so terrifying. »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Good Wife, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Person of Interest and Chicago Fire!
1 | Did this week’s Good Wife telegraph Archie Panjabi’s imminent exit? Who do you think asked Peter to stall Judge Cuesta? (And could Peter’s aide have been more of a dunce for leaving his cell on the table in plain sight?)

"What awaits us out there is what troubles me," Edward James Olmos in his role as Battlestar Galactica's sage but increasingly troubled Admiral Adama. That brow should prepare for further furrowing with the veteran Battlestar and Blade Runner actor signing up for a recurring role in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. No word yet on whether he'll be on the side of the angels or doing the dark biding of Hydra, but Marvel has at least offered up his character name.“Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales,” said executive producer Jeph Loeb. “When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice – including our favourite Agents.” The arrival of Olmos's Gonzales will, reveals the official Marvel press release, have “massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team".

With the revelations that occured in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s recent midseason finale (which we went into in detail about here), it's fair to assume that there will be new challenges, enemies and allies for Coulson and co. after the excellent Agent Carter rounds-off its run.
As such, it's a nice surprise to see a highly ambigous casting announcement. Indeed, it seems Marvel is playing some cards close to its chest on this one.
The only Marvel Gonzaleses in the internet's hive memory were police officer Vincent, and his sister Michele. »
Blade Runner and Battlestar Galactica star Edward James Olmos has signed on for a recurring guest role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with the official Marvel site revealing that he’s set to play Robert Gonzales, a character who “will have massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team.”
“Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales,” said Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice–including our favorite Agents.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC on March 3rd.

I tuned out of Marvel's Agents of Shield (I refuse to type those individual periods after each letter) after the pilot, but I've heard that the show greatly improved in its second season. Is that enough to get me to watch it? Nope - I still have to catch up on Orange is the New Black, Deadwood, and about a million other shows - but those of you who Are watching Marvel's flagship TV series might be interested to know that they've just added a heavy hitter to the cast.
Marvel.com has revealed that Battlestar Galactica star Edward James Olmos has joined the show in "a major recurring role." Who is he playing, you ask? Someone named Robert Gonzales, a character who, as far as we can tell, didn't previously exist anywhere in the Marvel universe. Is this some sort of sneaky trick indicating that Olmos is actually playing »

The Marvel TV Universe might still be buzzing over the premiere of Agent Carter, but don’t forget her modern-day counterparts.

We’re still two months away from the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to ABC, but the series is certainly doing its best to tease fans with announcements during the hiatus, and perhaps nothing has been more exciting than this casting news that was just released today. As first revealed by Marvel.com, Battlestar Galactica alum Edward James Olmos will be heading to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when in the spring to play Robert Gonzales, whose presence on the series will apparently have “massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team.” In addition to his famous role on Battlestar Galactica, Olmos has appeared on numerous other series throughout the years. His TV credits include Eureka, CSI: NY, and a starring role as Professor James Gellar in Dexter‘s sixth season (a season that most fans, like myself, wish we could forget, although that wasn’t Olmos’ fault). Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has »

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has just added another new face for its March return to ABC with Edward James Olmos! Olmos will play Robert Gonzales, whose debut this spring in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team. Here's what Executive Producer and Marvel's Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, had to say about the casting in a statement.
"Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales. When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice--including our favorite Agents."
Best known for roles in Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner and Miami Vice, Olmos twice earned the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for TV with his work on Miami Vice and The Burning Season. In addition, »
Marvel have announced that Edward James Olmos has joined the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as "Robert Gonzales". I've checked, and there doesn't appear to be any comic book characters of that name, but his debut when the series returns in March will apparently have massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team. "Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales," said Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb in a statement released today. "When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice--including our favorite Agents." Intriguing, eh?

While Agent Carter is now in full swing (check out our review of the first episodes here), Marvel hasn't forgotten Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The show is currently on hiatus, with the latter half of season 2 returning in March. When it does return, it will also return with a heavy hitter. Adama himself, Edward James Olmos, will join the cast as Robert Gonzales, who evidently will change things up in a big way for Agent Coulson and his team. Executive producer Jeph Loeb had this to say: »
