James D’Arcy (“Cloud Atlas,” “Master and Commander”) is set to join the cast of Marvel’s “Agent Carter” series for ABC.
Set in 1946, Hayley Atwell reprises her role as Peggy Carter who is now working for the covert Strategic Scientific Reserve, doing administrative work and going on secret missions.
D’Arcy will play Jarvis, the butler to Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) and ally to Agent Carter. His character is the one Howard’s son Tony eventually names his A.I. system after.
Enver Gjokaj and Chad Michael Murray are also onboard the series which will air when “Agents of SHIELD” goes on its mid-season break.
