Agent Carter needs Enver Gjokaj.
The Dollhouse vet has landed a role on Marvel’s next TV experiment, Marvel’s Agent Carter, a coming-to-ABC Captain America: The First Avenger spin-off starring Hayley Atwell.
Set in 1946, a year after the events of the first movie blockbuster that saw Chris Evans play Cappie, the show will revolve around Atwell’s Peggy Carter – obviously – as she navigates a peaceful world run by men that has little use for her skills set. Nevertheless, she continues to work for S.H.I.E.L.D., specifically for its Strategic Scientific Reserve, where she balances boring admin work and secret missions for Howard (father of Tony) Stark (Dominic Cooper) while coping with a life without her beloved Steve Rogers.
Gjokaj will play an SSR agent Peggy meets in her new role, as will Chad Michael Murray, who also has joined the show to play a similar part.
Mmm...methinks at least one of them will turn out to be a Hydra mole....
Anyway, Marvel’s Agent Carter is set to air some time this next season, as a bridge show between the first and second half of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (exact premiere date TBA).
