Jason O’Mara Will Play the New Director on ‘Agents of SHIELD’

At the end of Agents of SHIELD‘s third season it was revealed that Coulson had been demoted from his role as Director of SHIELD, leaving the question as to who had replaced him. And while we still don’t know the name of the new Director, we do know who’s going to play him.

Deadline is reporting that Jason O’Mara will be playing the as-of-yet unnamed character, who reportedly has “Marvel roots [that] go back to the 1940s.”

O’Mara is probably best known to geeks as the voice of Batman in half a dozen of DC animated films, along with starring in Terra Nova, the US adaptation of Life on Mars, and some other shows which probably got cancelled after one season. Oh, and Monarch of the Glen — he was totally Fergal the wolf guy on Monarch of the Glen.

It’ll be interesting to see who exactly the heck O’Mara is playing this time around when Agents of SHIELD returns to ABC in the Fall.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
