Patton Oswalt is to play Howling Commando member Agent Eric Koenig in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Accepting a guest role in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn't, we'd imagine, a tough decision for Patton Oswalt, an actor/comedian who's made no secret of his comic book love over the years.

Oswalt is to play Agent Eric Koenig in a fothcoming episode, whose first appearance was made in Sgt. Fury And The Howling Commandos issue number 27. It's the actor/comedian's second involvement with a Whedon-led project, after his role as Joel Mynor in a couple of episodes of Dollhouse.

Since the end of long-running sitcom King Of Queens, Oswalt has made guest appearances in a range of cult comedy hits, from Flight Of The Conchords, to CommunityThe Venture Bros, Portlandia and more. Arguably one of his best performances though, is in Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody's Young Adult, a film well worth seeking out if you missed it at the time. Unarguably Oswalt's most popular performance was as the voice of chef rat Remy in Pixar's Ratatouille, another gem.
