Jason O’Mara Is The New “S.H.I.E.L.D.” Chief

Jason O’Mara (“The Good Wife,” “Complications”) has joined the cast of ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” in a key role – as the director of the titular organisation.

Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson revealed in the final minutes of the third season finale that the organization had a new director, O’Mara taking on that part which is said to be a character whose Marvel roots go back to the 1940s.

Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb says: “Bringing Jason into the mix as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. forces everyone, particularly Coulson, to reevaluate their role in the agency. Jason has both the physical presence and acting dynamics that will connect with and challenge even the most loyal agent.”

The new season of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres on September 20th.
