According to TVGuide.com, Lucy Lawless has been cast to appear in Season 2 of ABC’s Agents of SHIELD.
Who Lawless will play? We don’t know. How many episodes will she be around for? We don’t know. Is having both her and fellow Parks & Rec actor Chris Pratt in the Marvel Cinematic Universe a sign that Amy Poehler will eventually be cast as Carol Danvers in a Captain Marvel movie? We don’t know.
What we do know is that Lawless, best known from her roles in Xena, Spartacus, Battlestar Galactica, Flight of the Conchords and Parks & Rec, is no stranger to both action and comedy. Considering the tone of Agents of SHIELD, she may be just what the doctor ordered.
You know, if the doctor in question was terrible at his job and spent all day telling you his thoughts on TV show casting instead of setting your broken arm.
I’m excited about Lawless showing up at least.
