Geek favourite Amy Acker has been cast as Agent Coulson's mysterious Cellist in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

It was only a matter of time. With post-Angel roles in Joss Whedon's DollhouseThe Cabin In the Woods, and Much Ado About Nothing, and guest appearances in David Greenwalt's Grimm and Jane Espenson's Husbands, Amy Acker hasn't been reluctant about reuniting with her Buffy spin-off family. Now it's been announced that Acker has been cast in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Acker's latest reunion sees her join the Whedon/Tancharoen ABC venture in the role of Agent Coulson's beloved cellist girlfriend. The character also goes by the name of Audrey, we learn, and is a talented musician unaware that Coulson is still alive, and being protected by him from a powerful threat. Acker will feature in at least one episode of the ABC series.

Acker and Clark Gregg last shared the screen together in Joss Whedon's delightful Much Ado About Nothing, in which she played niece Beatrice to his Leonarto. If you missed it at the time, the film and Acker's performance both come highly recommended by us.

Any chance she'll be a sexy shade of blue?

I like her and think this will be good but christ that doesn't bode well for her in person of interest. Can she really be in two shows at once or is her marvel role more of a one story ep kinda gig?

Now they just need to hire some new writers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. might actually be worth giving a second chance.

Woooo! If you can add Amy Acker to your cast, you should. Though I'm a tiny bit miffed she has to have a connection to the plot instead of just being written in as a normal person that Coulson just happens to be seeing.

Like: Amy Acker. Do Not Like: Continued existence of Fitz and Simmons. Was sort of of hoping Acker would be replacing them.

Easy. The powerful threat is... M.O.D.O.C. Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Cellists.

Wow, you liked RayA11's comment on /Film so much that you decided to make it your own.

Never admit when you use someone's joke. It's awkward.

I didn't like Fitz and Simmons at first but they have grown on me. However I still don't like Skye or Ward. I wish they could just be taken away

The black dude with Bill Paxton liked old girl, I'd like something to come from that. What if he replaced Ward? I was starting to get excited about August J joining them, but now he's Dethlok. That's ok I guess. In his case it would have been a Power on the team. Shame.

I love me Miss Acker, she is kicking ass as Root in POI.

Yes they should change the team, use characters that have been created like from the secrete avengers comic book, they need Daisy Johnson or Jessica Drew rather than two scientist. But I hope it gets better
