ABC has hired Avengers writer/director for their new TV series S.H.I.E.L.D. The live-action pilot’s title is an acronym for Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division, a covert organization run by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the movie Avengers. It looks like Ming-Na Wen (ER) will be joining Clark Gregg (The Avengers) as a lead role in ABC’s television series. Ming is described as a combat veteran; thoughtful and a little damaged by her experiences in the field. But Melinda is also an ace pilot and a weapons expert, not to mention a solider who can perform above and beyond the call of duty. We know Coulson will return to the show as well, which leaves four more roles to fill, if those descriptions still hold true today. The casting directors are now looking for male and female actors to fill in the remaining supporting roles for S.H.I.E.L.D and this is your opportunity to be on a hit ABC show.Details are already leaking out about five key characters set to appear in the series written by Whedon, his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. None of the characters are familiar from recent Marvel films or comics, suggesting the “S.H.I.E.L.D.” series will carve its own creative path.
“Skye: This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident – with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.
Agent Grant Ward: Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.
Agent Althea Rice: Also known as “The Calvary,” this hard-core soldier has crazy skills when it comes to weapons and being a pilot. But her experiences have left her very quiet and a little damaged.
Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons: These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies – she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.”
