Marvel Entertainment and ABC have announced that comedian and actor Ken Marino has scored the key role of mob boss Joseph Manfredi in the upcoming second season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter”.
The character first appeared in “Daredevil” as the costumed villain Blackwing before turning his eye toward a more traditional mob boss role – that latter incarnation likely to form the basis of his ‘Carter’ appearance.
In the new season, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home – and perhaps even a new love – she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
Also starring are James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa, Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Bridget Regan as Dottie Underwood, Wynn Everett as Whitney Frost, Reggie Austin as Dr. Jason Wilkes, Currie Graham as Calvin Chadwick, Lotte Verbeek as Ana Jarvis, Lesley Boone as Rose, and Kurtwood Smith as Vernon Masters.
