Friday Night Lights and Legion actress Adrianne Palicki joins Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

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.

Joining other new additions Kyle MacLachlan, Lucy Lawless, Reed Diamond and Nick Blood, Adrianne Palicki has now been confirmed for the role of Bobbi Morse, otherwise known as Mockingbird.

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.

Adrianne Palicki will make her Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. debut in season two episode five, possibly on the opposing team to Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson (to start with).

You may well recognise Palicki from Friday Night Lights, Legion, G.I. Joe: Retaliation or the 2012 Red Dawn remake. She also, interestingly, starred in an unsuccessful Wonder Woman pilot, in the central role.
