mmm Heartburn for no apparent reason. Always fun.
The pilot for the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series is definitely taking shape as two more actors have joined the cast.
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.
This leaves us with just two unclaimed roles:
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.
Considering the speed with which things are progressing as of late on this project, I have a feeling it won’t be long before we know who these two will be portrayed by.
