It looks like Coulson is going to have even more problems coming his way. Marvel has announced that Emmy-nominated actress Constance Zimmer (Entourage, House of Cards) will join the cast of ABC and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for its upcoming third season.
Zimmer has been cast as the head of a mysterious new government agency that will cross paths with S.H.I.E.L.D. as both search for the Inhumans after last season’s events. She will be one of the prime rivals for Agent Coulson during the start of the season.
“When casting this role, we needed someone that could go toe-to-toe with Coulson,” said series Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “Constance brings a level of wit and spark to the role we could have only dreamed of, and we’re beyond excited to add her to our already stellar cast going into the new season.”
