A leaked casting breakdown has revealed apparent details about the new supporting characters in Marvel’s upcoming”Agent Carter” series on ABC.
At present Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark are the only known returning actors for the eight episode, mid-season premiere series.
Film Divider posted the description and claims the key new roles include:
Deputy Director Roger Hooley: A hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.
Agent Jack Thompson: 30-something. Handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.
Edward Hutchins: A highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. He’s lying to his wife about what he does to stop her worrying. True Lies, SHIELD style.
Daniel Sousa: Everything Jack Thompson wants to be. He’s a war hero who walks using a leg brace, but finds dealing with office politics to be harder than working around his injury. Sousa is also a fiercely honourable, gentle man and we’re betting he becomes one of Peggy’s major allies.
Angie Martinelli: Automat waitress, Angie dreams of being a singer. She’s a tough, compassionate young woman who is smart and loyal and seems set to be Peggy’s anchor to the world away from SHIELD.
Set during the early days of SHIELD, the series will focus on Peggy’s struggles to help form the agency and prove herself to her colleagues. The series will premiere when the second season of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” goes on a mid-season break.
