Actor David Conrad has been signed on for a role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although the role he’ll be playing has not yet been announced.
According to Blastr, it’s possible it could be a role that they’ve been looking to fill for the series:
But the series has been looking to cast a “brilliant and quirky scientist” to recur on the series, and Conrad seems to fit all the tangibles for the role. Conrad brings some decent genre experience, so he should fit in nicely with the baddie-fighting group of secret agents.
Conrad was last regularly seen on Ghost Whisperer and most recently had a couple of appearances on the TV show, The Firm.
