All told, the news that Whedon company player Amy Acker was to pop up in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has gone down rather well with fans. Acker is to play a character teased since The Avengers: Agent Coulson's cellist paramour, Audrey.

Here's what Acker had to say about joining the show, "I think one of the things that was so interesting about the role is that she has this backstory and she has been talked about in the TV show as well as the movie and you knew that she was someone important to him and, therefore, to everyone and, as an audience member, important to me. So when Clark called me personally and said how important this role was to him, that it [needed to be] cast with the right person, it was very flattering that he thought that I was that person."

Acker will be appearing as Audrey in at least one episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., in which Coulson will attempt to protect her from a grave threat, we're told. Below is the first look at Acker in the episode. She looks the part, wouldn't you say? Well, she's playing a cello...

Lovely!

fifty bucks says she's secretly going to be the Clairvoyant

I love Clark Gregg, I truly do, I think he's a wonderful actor. I also have a healthy suspension of disbelief, you can ask me to buy into mutants or superpowers or alien gods with cod-Shakespearian speech patterns.
But a world in which Clark Gregg's ex-girlfriend is Amy Acker is pushing it a little far.

You are aware that Julia Roberts is Lyle Lovette's ex-wife, right?

for less than two years, so yeah I guess the idea of someone attractive with someone un-attractive works for a limited period.

It happens all the time actually. I see beautiful people married to people I would consider less than stellar all the time.

It gives me hope. ;)

She's a fembot!

Sorry? But who the hell are you to define what people should find attractive?!? Please change your profile pic to your own face so we can judge you based purely on how you look!

I judge people purely on how they look. It's actually pretty bang on.

Err, its not. . .

...Says bottle of baby oil. Chances are you were always going to be a bit soft and PC. See what I did there - completely accurate analysis based on three second visual-conginition - bang on. :D

don't worry, godstrike (if that is your real name, oddly my name is my real name) has issues with families that have mixed race skin types. Even though it's not a rare occurrence.

No I don't. & if I put a picture of my face on here you would realise how ludicrous your comment is.

Well you are wrong.

Come now everyone, I think we can all agree that Amy Acker is highly attractive and we shouldn't argue in her presence. Clearly Joss is mad about her. I always thought they'd make a good couple - ubernerd gets teen geek princess.

Amy Acker is quite beautiful.

That is all.
