Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ Casts Ken Marino; ‘Difficult People’ Ups James Urbaniak

Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp, Vinyl) has joined the Season 2 cast of Marvel’s Agent Carter. He’ll play Joseph Manfredi, a volatile leader in the Maggia crime syndicate who will help Peggy Carter’s adversaries further their agenda. 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. Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2 premieres on ABC in 2016.

After recurring in Season 1, James Urbaniak has been promoted to series regular for Season 2 of Hulu comedy series Difficult People. Urbaniak plays Arthur Tack, the tweedy, bit of a dandy, who works for PBS, and is the doting live-in boyfriend of Julie Klausner’s more unfiltered character.
The comedy revolves around two 30-something aspiring comics, Julie (Klausner) and Billy (Billy Eichner), living and working in New York City. While their friends and acquaintances move on to find success and love, they continue to struggle with careers and relationships, getting more bitter by the day. Urbaniak, whose credits include Review, Adventageous, The Office, American Splendor, and Venture Brothers, is repped by Endorse Management Group and DBA.
