“Marvel’s Agent Carter” announced today that “Boardwalk Empire” star Shea Whigham has joined its cast in the role of SSR Chief Roger Dooley. Whigam joins Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa and James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis.
Although the show’s take on the character is officially described as being “Tough but fair-minded,” die-hard Marvel Comics fans may recall Dooley as a less-than-pleasant S.H.I.E.L.D. officer who, in John Byrne’s 1985 graphic novel “The Sensational She-Hulk,” attempted to capture the jade giantess.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Executive producers are Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
