Marvel’s Agent Carter is bulking up its cast as the series heads to Hollywood for Season 2. The Newsroom alumna Wynn Everett, Lotte Verbeek (The Fault In Our Stars), Currie Graham (Pompeii) and Reggie Austin (Devious Maids) have joined as regulars for the second season of the ABC action-drama series. In addition, Dominic Cooper and Bridget Regan, who recurred last season, both will be back for Season 2. Cooper will reprise his role as Howard Stark and Regan will be back as Dottie. Marvel TV made the announcements today at New York Comic-Con.
Hayley Atwell stars as Agent Peggy Carter, the unstoppable secret agent for the Strategic Scientific Reserve. Dedicated to the fight against new atomic-age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy now must 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.
Everett will play the storied Marvel comics character Whitney Frost, a Hollywood actress and brilliant inventor. In the comics, Whitney first appeared in Tales Of Suspense #98 in 1968 before becoming Madame Masque a year later in Iron Man #17. Verbeek is Ana Jarvis, the free-spirited wife of Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who immediately befriends Peggy and helps her to adjust to life in Los Angeles. Graham plays Whitney’s husband Calvin Chadwick, a high-powered businessman. Austin is Jason Wilkes, a quirky yet charismatic scientist who instantly charms Peggy.
The series also stars Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson and Enver Gjokaj as Chief Daniel Sousa.
Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb are executive producers. Marvel’s Agent Carter is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
