A lot of casting directors must love Boardwalk Empire. Seems like we’re getting a lot of casting news based on actors from that show including Michael Shannon playing General Zod, Charlie Cox playing Daredevil and the rumor of Jack Huston playing Doctor Strange, but he’s a little busy now.
We have news that Shea Whigham has found his next role and it’s on Marvel’s Agent Carter. According to Deadline, Whigham will play what is considered the male lead of the series opposite of Hayley Atwell. He will be playing SSR Chief Roger Dooley and will oversee agents Carter, Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Sousa (Enver Gjokaj).
Roger Dooley was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who appeared in the Marvel Graphic Novel #18: The Sensational She-Hulk by John Byrne. Dooley does not live long nor is he very likeable so it’s interesting that they used that particular name for a regular character… in the graphic novel he holds a gun to She-Hulk’s friends head (Wyatt Wingfoot) to make her submit to a strip search…
Marvel’s Agent Carter does not have a specific air date yet but is planned to run during the season break for Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD.
