Marvel’s Agent Carter has added Dollhouse and One Tree Hill actors to cast...

It’s fair to say that Agent Carter is a fairly exciting proposition for followers of Marvel Studios. Based on the hugely enjoyable One Shot of the same name, the ABC show will follow Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter in the years while Steve Rogers was doing time as a capcicle.

Now, we’ve got some confirmation as to who will be joining Atwell in the cast. First up, we know that Chad Michael Murray of One Tree Hill fame will play Agent Jack Tompson. Secondly, Enver Gjokaj (who played Victor in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse) has been confirmed to play Agent Daniel Sousa.

Little is known about the characters, other than they will be joining Agent Carter in the pre-S.H.I.E.L.D. spy agency known as the Strategic Scientific Reserve.

Agent Carter is set in 1946, with peace-time causing problems for the eponymous Agent - her marginalisation in the spy world, after male agents return from war, will be a key plot focus.

Thankfully, Carter has another responsibility, ‘secret missions for Howard Stark’, which promise to provide a lot of the show’s fun. 

Captain America: The Winter Soldier directorial duo the Russo brothers are confirmed to direct two episodes of the show, while Captain America: The First Avenger’s Joe Johnson is also rumoured to be helming an episode.

Although an official start date isn’t confirmed, we know that Agent Carter will air mid-way through the second series of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
