Army Wives is going in to its seventh season, but not with out some big holes that will need filling. Series star Kim Delaney is not returning for Season 7, or any other season that may follow, leaving a large void where she once stood. Not quite as drastic, but still a change that will be felt through out the new season, Sally Pressman is reducing her role as a series regular. This means Army Wives is going to need some new blood to make up for what it’s lost. But to ensure all cracks are filled, three new regulars were hired instead of two – though since Pressman is still sort of around, the show would only need one and a half. Let’s meet the new faces!
The new girls joining the series are, according to Deadline, Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto and Elle McLemore. They’re all playing very different »

Hugh Jackman has agreed to reprise his role of Wolverine in X Men: Days of Future Past. This is the third actor from director Bryan Singer’s first two X Men films to sign on after both Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen agreed to come back as well. Days of Future Past remains one of the most popular stories from comic books, released as a two-part stand-alone story in 1981. It deals with a dystopian alternative future (so popular now, but revolutionary then) in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An older Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into the younger, present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria. This plot line can allow the return of actors from X Men (2000) and X2: X Men United (2003), and I wonder how many other actors Singer can persuade into coming back –Famke Jannsen? »
Joss Whedon’s latest TV project, S.H.I.E.L.D., is slowly moving forward and as this much-anticipated adaptation makes its slow trudge to the small screen, we can report that this week, a new agent jumps on board in the form of Brett Dalton.
Who’s that, you might ask? I’m not really sure as well, but apparently he’s done some not-so-noticed work around the TV scene (he’s been in Blue Bloods and Army Wives, apparently — I say “apparently” because I’ve never seen a single second of neither), but I’m guessing his face will get a bit more familiar once S.H.I.E.L.D. starts.
But who will he be playing? Well, Agent Grant, of course, who is, according to the people that know these sorts of things better than me:
… one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s highly-skilled rising stars. He’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills. »

You may not have heard of him. But given Joss Whedon's ability to spot unknown talent and turn them into superstars, chances are you'll be flocking to as convention at some point to get a glimpse of him. Brett Dalton, who has had guest stints in shows like "Blue Bloods" on CBS and "Army Wives," has been cast as one of the lead actors in Whedon's "The Avengers" sister series "Shield." He will play Agent Grant, a "deadly and precise fighter who may lack a little bit in the 'people skills' department," according to TV Line. Dalton already joins Marvel movies actor Clark Gregg as well as former "Stargate: Universe" star Ming-Na Wen for the series. Gregg will play Agent Coulson, a role he played in films like "The Avengers," "Thor" and "Iron Man 2." Wen will play weapons expert Melinda May. The »
Dalton will play Agent Grant in this action drama from Marvel's "The Avengers" universe (as first reported by TVLine). Grant is described as a deadly and precise fighter who may lack a little bit in the "people skills" department.
This casting news marks the third major role announced for the potential TV series. Clark Gregg, who played Agent Coulson in several "Avengers"-related films, will reprise his role for the pilot. Ming-Na ("ER," "Eureka") has also been cast in the role of Agent Melinda May, a weapons expert.
Agent Phil Coulson, meet your newest recruit: Agent Grant.
Brett Dalton, best known for roles on "Army Wives" and "Blue Bloods," is the latest actor to join Joss Whedon's upcoming "S.H.I.E.L.D." pilot for ABC. According to TV Line, he'll play Agent Grant, considered to be one of the rising stars at the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
A previous casting call described Grant Ward as follows:
Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.
How much of that is still intact remains to be seen, but Whedon has wiggle room here: Grant isn't a character from the comics, so he's a blank canvas, along with the rest of the "S.H.I.E.L.D." cast.

You can add Brett Dalton to the growing cast of Joss Whedon’s “Shield” TV show at ABC. The relatively unknown actor (he’s been in “Blue Bloods” and “Army Wives”, apparently — I say “apparently” because I’ve only seen sporadic episodes of “Blue Bloods”, and I’ve never seen a single second of “Army Wives”) will play Agent Grant, described as “one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s highly-skilled rising stars. He’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people skills.” Hey, he’s deadly, precise, and cool under fire — people skills are gratuitous at that point, I’d imagine. Dalton adds to “Sheild’s” two main leads, Ming-Na and Clark Gregg, the latter reprising his Agent Phil Coulson character from the Marvel movies and this summer’s massive hit “The Avengers”. Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker were also previously cast. Whedon is overseeing the show, »
Newcomer Brett Dalton has joined the cast of Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D pilot. The actor, who has previously made guest appearances in shows such as Army Wives and Blue Bloods, will portray a rising star at the peacekeeping agency, according to TVLine. Dalton's character Agent Grant is billed as a cool and technically precise agent who can hold his composure under pressure. However, he is said to be somewhat lacking in people skills.

Briefly: Here’s the latest on Marvel’s first big foray into television. The cast of S.H.I.E.L.D. has just been bolstered by Brett Dalton (Army Wives, Killing Lincoln, Blue Bloods), who will play Agent Grant, a “rising star” of the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. Grant is “deadly, precise, and cool under fire — but not so great with the people [...] »

The actor will portray Agent Grant Ward, a highly-trained operative who lacks people skills. The character was one of five mentioned in the casting breakdowns from October, along with Agent Althea Rice (now known as Melinda May) played by Ming-Na, Elizabeth Henstridge's Agent Gemma Simmons, and Ian de Caestecker's Agent Leo Fitz. The agent known as Skye is the only character who hasn't been cast from that initial rundown.
Joss Whedon wrote the pilot script with Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, who will all executive produce alongside Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell. Joss Whedon is expected to direct the pilot episode, with production slated to begin in January.
The highly anticipated project is based on a peacekeeping group that appeared in various Marvel comics and in the summer blockbuster film The Avengers, which Whedon wrote and directed. The title’s acronym refers to a secret peacekeeping organization called Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division.
Dalton, whose credits include guest stints on Army Wives and Blue Bloods as well as a supporting role in National Geographic Channel’s forthcoming telepic Killing Lincoln, will play Agent Grant, one »
